Birthday Party Ideas: Sesame Street and The Very Hungry Caterpillar

My nephew is turning 2 in a little over a month, and this has me thinking about party themes :)

The little guy is obsessed with Cookie Monster - it's by far his favorite Sesame Street character. So I thought these cupcakes would be perfect! These make me smile every time I see them.

So....why not keep the theme going and make it all about Sesame Street? This would be an easy game to play with the little kids - especially since toddlers are always trying to get in the trash anyway ;)

(The blog this image is from has other great game ideas too)

Aren't these favor bags cute? They would be fun to make too! Then each kid could take home their favorite character.

When I was a toddler I loved the Very Hungry Caterpillar. My nephew loves to read (including this book), so I thought he might like this theme too.

I thought these invites were super cute! Although it could be a bit time intensive to hand deliver all the invites :)

Instead of a cake, these tiny cupcakes are kid-friendly and easy to make

For appetizers, an assortment of fruits is healthy and delicious (as well as pretty low maintenance and easy to prepare)

These cookies were too cute to pass up - and anyway, you can't only have cake at a party - the more sweets the better! These would be a bit more time intensive if you wanted to get the cool shading affect.

Whatever the theme ends up being, I know it will be fun to get to celebrate with him - since it will only be a year or two more before he is too cool to have his Aunties and Uncles at his parties ;)


  1. For appetizers, an variety of fruits is wholesome besides delicious (as well as stunning blue alimony plus mild to equip).30th birthday ideas

  2. I love the idea of the sesame street favor bags, my son has a birthday coming up and he wants a sesame street birthday and i want to do the fa or bags kinda like that but its hard finding the bags, where did u find the bags? I already have tons of construction paper for the faces.

  3. Waooo! Lovely favors and cake design. Still remember the best birthday planned by my friend for me last year. Loved the pretty decorations done at party venue with stars and balloons. Ribbon hangings were also cute. My favorite cake and cuisines were ordered. Got gifts from everyone. Liked the warm welcome given by all my friends.
