Part 1 - An Elmo extravaganza

We have shown a few sneak peeks of this party on our Facebook page, but thought it was about time that we shared it here on our blog, in full. Although as the party was HUGE, we will share it over a couple of posts, or seriously - you will be here reading all night!

This party was for a gorgeous little boys first birthday party. The client wanted all the traditional birthday things; lots of balloons, party hats, blowers, lollies and of course, cake. She also requested an Elmo/Sesame Street theme, as it is her little boys favourite.

While we do tend to like to do things a bit handmade and different here, we were not ones to shy away from a challenge. With inspiration from the fabulous team at Southern Belle, who put together this wonderful Elmo party last year, we took the theme and totally ran with it!

The venue was a large community hall, with 30 odd children and over 60 adults, we knew a big space would be required. It also allowed lots of space for the kids to run around and play with the wonderful entertainer that we arranged. She literally took them all to Sesame Street, with music, games, singing and balloons - perfect for all ages!

We also set up a number of activity stations including play dough, craft and blocks. This worked really well as there was a mix of ages at the party and it catered for everyone.

To decorate the space, we used a combination of almost 300 balloons, wall friezes and banners. Each of the adults tables included a balloon centre piece and was dressed in a colour coordinated table cloth.

Tomorrow night we will share the kids table, and then the dessert table. For now - here is a sneak peek to tide you over...
