Pink and Orange Elmo Party

Our sweet Savannah turned 3 on February 12! 

On Saturday, we had a wonderful time celebrating Savannah's birthday
with 40 family and friends (including 12 kids) who came to
Savannah's pink Elmo party at our house:

For the party decorations, I purchased a personalized
Elmo party printable package from Shindig parties on Etsy.

I printed all the water bottle wraps, table tents,
cupcake toppers, favor tags, door signs, etc.
that are seen below in coordinating pink, red, and orange patterns:

Pink Tissue Paper Poms
(that I bought at Party City and made myself)

Mini Cupcakes
(from Wal-Mart)

Elmo Water Bottles

Cookie Monster Cookies

Grover's Goodies

Big Bird Brownies

Elmo Juice Boxes
(from Wal-Mart and Target)

Fozzie Bear Fruit
(Applesauce on the Go)

Elmo's Chips

Favor Bags
(with Goldfish crackers, crayons, stickers,
and a stamper for each child)

"Elmo loves his goldfish and crayons, too.
Now so can you!"

"Thanks for celebrating with me!"

In lieu of balloons, I put "Welcome to Savannah's Street" signs
on our mailbox to welcome guests.

When kids arrived, they colored personalized coloring sheets:
"Savannah is 3!
"Happy Birthday, Savannah!"
"E is for Elmo"
"S is for Savannah"


For party food, Tal grilled burgers and hot dogs,
while I picked up Little Caesar's pizzas.

Grandma Barbara and I created a simple cupcake display
(with chocolate cupcakes that Savannah and I made and Grandma frosted)
for Savannah to blow out 3 candles.
Notice the cupcake that Savannah ate is missing:

Savannah was showered with birthday gifts!

Savannah received many of her favorite things:
coloring sheets
stuffed animals
makeup kit
play kitchen items

Thanks to everyone who came to Savannah's party
and made her birthday such a special occasion!
