Sesame Street Party Ideas
At a Sesame Street birthday party, you can entertain kids and adults alike!
I am in search for ideas for my son's first birthday party. I know the theme will be Sesame Street/Elmo, and I am expecting to invite 35 to 45 family and friends.There will be around 15 kids attending. What type of food should we serve?
The expert answers:
Children love simple and fun foods. With the right presentation, you'll not only get to amuse kids, you'll also get them to enjoy healthy dishes.
Try a variety of cookie cutter shapes (letters, numbers, triangles, circles, Sesame Street characters, animals). You will also want to find several festive centerpieces (toys work well for this) and theme-related serving trays.
Cheese platters, fresh vegetables, fruit and finger sandwiches are always winners among kids.
Here is a sample Elmo theme food menu
Elmo's Fruit Canoe
To Market, To Market Vegetable Crudite
Sesame Street Sandwiches
Note: Mrs Fields Cookies have very cute Elmo and Sesame Street Character cookies you can buy. Don't forget to set-up "Elmo's Lemonade Stand!"
