We had a picture taken on the stoop of Sesame Street at Sesame Place. That is what gave me the idea for the cake. Sheri at Delicacies by Sheri turned it into a reality! We could not be happier with it.
Wide shot of the cake, cupcakes, E's & 2's and the die cut characters.
I saw this invitation on Etsy and a few blogs during the summer and knew it would be a super way to invite everyone over! You can find this invitation at Less Ordinary Designs.
I found these Favors Bags over at Cherished Blessings.

Elmo loves his goldfish. Elmo diecut from Taz's Scrapping Fun House.
He of course loves his crayons too!!! The Elmo Crayons came from Gaddy Nipper Crayons. They have a huge selection of recycled crayons. They make fantastic favors or gifts!! Great customer service!!
Ella's Grammy made each child a hat that looks like Big Bird, Elmo, or Cookie! Thanks Grammy! They were a hit!
These "so adorable" (as Ella would say) cookies came from Amanda B. Head over to The Barwick Crew to support this super Mama of two sets of twins on her new adventure!!
Amanda's Cookies and the cupcakes waiting to be passed out. The cupcake toppers are from Shindig Parties TO GO. (another talented Amanda that I will give more details on it a bit....sorry to both Amanda's for the blurry picture)
The work of the two Amanda's coming together!
The printables came from Shindig Parties TO GO. Go over and check out It's Always a Party at the Parker's. She was such a joy to work with on the party!
The Birthday Girl in her Tutu Set from The Couture Baby. Another great seller who worked with Ella's measurements to perfection!!
Dada worked his magic on these cut out feet of Elmo, Big Bird, and Cookie. He even spaced them out so that Big Bird had the longest strides and Elmo the shortest! Haha!
They lead to the party and die cut faces of Elmo, Big Bird and Cookie. All the die cuts that you have seen came from Taz's Scrapping Fun House.
The tables for the children with crayons and coloring books.

Help cover Cookie in Fur game. This is Daddy's handy work too!! He made the paper in to the shape of Cookie and used contact paper in the middle.
We had a pile of napkins cut in quarters and the kids balled them up and added them to Cookie to cover him in his fur.
Cookie all finished. It was a fun and non competitive game too!
Singing to the birthday girl!
End of the day! Cookie, Ernie, and Oscar made it through the party! It was a magnificent day spent with family and friends. Thanks to all of you for all the love and support that you give Ella and our family every day! We love you and appreciate you more than words can say!!!
