La, La La La

It's Elmo's World!
My son was all about Elmo, so it became an easy second birthday party theme.  I started looking around town for Elmo things and getting ideas.  I didn't just want to go to the party store and buy their version of an Elmo Party.  This just isn't how I work!
Started with an invitation I found on Etsy/Digipixels.

A tradition we started was to decorate the front door with the theme of the party - we show it off the morning the kids wake up!

When the little guests arrived they got an Elmo sticker then a pass to get their picture take with Elmo.

I made a custom banner - using a the computer, a circle cutter and some ribbon.
I also made my own cupcake toppers, some with Elmo and some of my son.
Elmo's favorite food is Pizza so we served that for all the kids!
My son wasn't really into cake but he sure loves chocolate chip cookies!

For the favor bags -I found cute Sesame Place books and Elmo stamps at the $1 section of Target.
The Elmo face image was printed on sticker paper.  Found on Etsy/Ry Creations.
