Shia’s 2nd birthday was inspired by his love for Elmo, but it was hard to make the theme cute and chic! Every party decoration I found was cheesy, and didn’t go with the feel I wanted: kid-friendly, but with some personal touches. We chose Kidville (there are lots of locations), because we knew the 26 2-year-olds needed to be constantly stimulated. There was a Play-Doh station, tattoo station, kids’ gym, bouncy castle, and a music class with puppets. Here is a list of where the birthday party accessories came from (they’re almost all from Etsy) — I hope this helps when you’re planning your Sesame Street party!

1. My friend did a Sesame Street theme for her son in Washington, DC. She shipped the chair covers to me for his party, and they were a big hit. They’re from chasing-fireflies.com.
2. One of my first purchases for his party was the “Shia Street” sign. I got it here.
3.The adorable rainbow yarn pom-pom food sign holders are from imeondesign.
4. I needed something to jazz up the tables, so I purchased red-and-white chevron table runners LuxuryLinenLoft.
5. The amazing Sesame Street character tissue pom-poms are from PomPomMomma.
6. The party hats (my favorite!) are from CraftyPartyDecor.
7. I made fruity pebble balls, and put them in rainbow cupcake wrappers from The Bakers Confections.
9. I always use Le Partie Sugar, the best event company in Los Angeles, to help with all of my parties. The owner makes the most adorable custom printables, and she also helped me find some of these amazing items.
