Carter's Party

It's a little late but as promised here is my post on Carter's Elmo Party. We had it at a place called Leaping Lizards. It is an inflatable play place. It was private so only our guests were there. I spent a week preparing. I bought invites and decorations from an ETSY shop called The Paper Blossom and printed and made them all myself. I made plates that looked like Elmo, Dorothy, and Cookie Monster. I had a fish bowl full of goldfish. Elmo shaped fruit and veggie plates. And an awesome cake made by a great friend! Check out some picks. If you have any questions about how I did something let me know. We also got the cutest outfits from Allisson's Creations on ETSY

I had so much fun meeting you the other day. You're little ones are so cute! Love the Elmo party. That's what my sister is thinking of having an Elmo party for my niece's 2nd birthday. I'll have to show her your pictures.

It was great to meet you. Most my ideas for the party came from pinterest!! It was a lot of work, but totally worth it. It was so much cuter than the store bought stuff!
