When you are planning your child's birthday party, you can't go wrong with an Elmo-theme.
Now that you have the theme picked out, you can gather your Elmo party supplies to help bring the celebration to life. Here are some items to purchase:
When you have the right supplies on hand, decorating the party room is a snap. Inflate red, white and aqua balloons with a portable helium tank. Tie some of the balloons to the backs of the chairs and let the other balloons float to the ceiling. Also, blow-up a few balloons the old fashioned way and scatter them on the floor of the party area.
Drape the party table with a white table cloth and sprinkle red and aqua confetti on top of it. To complete the look, hang some red and white streamers from the ceiling and post a couple of giant Elmo cutouts on the wall.
Really turn on the Elmo magic by setting the scene. Pick and choose suggestions to meet your time and budget constraints.
Dress up the birthday host or outfit the entire party! Here are several suggestions for Elmo-themed clothes:
If you are handy with a box of cake mix and a tube of red frosting, buy an Elmo cake pan and bake and decorate an Elmo cake for the party. You can also bake a few cupcakes, frost them with red and white icing and then display them on an Elmo-themed cupcake stand.
Give young party guests plenty of reasons to smile by filling their Elmo favors and goody bags with crayons, stickers, plastic rings, miniature toys, mini-bubbles, noisemakers, pencils and other popular party favors.
Children can't get enough of Elmo. This is why throwing a birthday party centered around this popular Sesame Street character is a smart thing to do. When your young party guests get a load of all the Elmo party supplies you used to decorate the room, they'll go wild.
