My little Mini Me's birthday was a (aheem) few months ago. I wanted to share a few of the pictures and I figured it was better late than never. We asked our daughter what she wanted to do for her birthday and without hesitation she exclaimed Elmo! She LOVES Elmo and wanted nothing but Elmo for her birthday. What's a mom to do other than throw her daughter an Elmo birthday party (Secretly, I was hoping for a princess party but I did manage to fit in LOTS of pink).
I scoured the internet, blogs, websites and Pinterest for ideas. I found a lot of inspiration and I
copied borrowed a lot of the ideas I found. Martha Stewart does it so why can't I. I knew that I wanted to reuse the decorations to update my daughter's nursery so I chose a bright pink, orange and red (had to add some in for Elmo) color theme and did my best to make or purchase decorations that could be either re-used or put in her big girl room. There was not necessarily a ton of things Elmo but there were a lot of little Elmo touches. Unfortunately I do not have pictures of everything due to a photographer disappeared with my pictures, so many pictures and details are are missing...what can you do?
The day was filled with fun and included a visit from Elmo himself. The house was packed due to the down pouring Florida rain (I won't count on outside space next time). Everyone seemed to have a great time but more importantly our sweet daughter had a wonderful birthday celebration that she is still talking about! Forgive all of the pictures but I really put my heart into making our daughter's party as fantastic as I could.
The favors were crayon roll ups that I made with an Elmo printed fabric, coloring books, an Sesame Street book and package of goldfish crackers all cutely put together in a little Elmo tote bag.
Below you can see how the decorations were re-purposed into our daughter's room. She LOVES having them there. I think that the tulle pompoms hanging from the ceiling are her favorite.
The day ended with a happy tired baby who had more fun than one little girl could have! I hope you enjoyed seeing our daughter's birthday...now to start on birthday #3.
I hope you enjoyed our pictures. Let me know what you think. I hope this can help inspire a girly themed Elmo party for your little girl!
