Part 3 - An Elmo extravaganza (the desserts!)

Thank you all so much for the lovely feedback on Part 1 and Part 2 of our Elmo extravaganza that we posted earlier in the week. Finally, tonight the dessert station!

We wanted the dessert station to be the centrepiece for the room, a focal point and obviously have a presence in such a large room. We started off by designing a set up that would use the stage area, as well as the floor below. The backdrop was hand-made to replicate the background of the original invitation.

The top level of the dessert station included two wonderful cakes from Fantasy Cakes. The client's son's are born only a few weeks apart, so each had a cake. One wonderful Elmo and then a divine Cookie Monster tied in with the theme perfectly.

On either side of the table we included some more goldfish bowls filled with gum balls, large oversized balloons (from Candy Soirees) and these two very impressive Elmo air-walker balloons. These balloons were HUGE and the birthday boys loved being able to take them home at the end of the day!

The bottom layer of the dessert station was filled with all sorts of wonderful treats... Elmo cupcakes, cake pops, jelly cups, popcorn, fruit cups, Cookie Monster cookies and of course, an array of lollies!

Alex also made these gorgeous Elmo cookies that were included in the tote bags that each child received. The tote bags also had some Sesame Street stickers, a packet of Elmo memory cards and we topped them up with plenty of lollies as well.

This photo is one of my favourites from the party - it's the birthday boy and the whole family, singing Happy Birthday! Love how happy they all look!

This party was so much fun to put together and we do have to say thank you to our fabulous suppliers at Candy Soirees and Fantasy Cakes. We also have to say thank you to our wonderful team, who always put in 110% to ensure our events go off without a hitch.

Hope you enjoyed our little Elmo extravaganza!
