My little shamrock turned two a few weeks ago, and although we don’t typically do a big friend/family bash for this age, making a cake for the four of us just didn’t seem like enough. I decorated on the cheap (as in I spent nothing at all!) for Sesame Street with stuff we already had around the house and was pleasantly surprised by the finished product.
Wish I could have bottled up the sparkle in Noah’s eyes when he walked into the living room to see that we had made a big deal for him. He made a point to tell everyone who stopped by that he’s two now, and that all of this decorating was for him :).
Backdrop: Sesame Street Bedding flat sheet (Christmas Gift)
Happy Birthday Character Banner: Designed by me with help from Muppet Wiki
Character Display: Various Sesame toys we’ve accumulated on Noah’s behalf
I sized the birthday banner the same as the Superhero banner I made for Elijah’s party. We’ve since hung it over Noah’s bed, and the child can name all seventeen characters! Yes I am a proud momma!
I can take absolutely no credit for this amazing cupcake creation. Auntie Jessie has become the resident cake maker and decorator for the family and she did a FABULOUS job for Noah’s party. Chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and the Sesame Street sign. Everyone was happy.
My contribution to the party desserts were the chocolate covered Oreos decorated with Noah’s favorite topping (mini-M&Ms) improvised from the directions in this post.
