I invited my friends and their families so we had kids from 1-10. We had Elmo come, along with a Magician so we could entertain all ages with magic, games, face painting, bubbles and balloons. We had a "Sweet Street" table with a rainbow Elmo cake, cake pops, Elmo cookies, E and 2 cookies, and lots of rainbow candy. I served mostly kid friendly food- chicken nuggets, mini corn dogs, meatballs, Elmo fruit platter, veggies, goldfish and cheese/meat platter. We had so much fun!
We had a table with dessert- Elmo b-day cake, cake pops, Elmo sugar cookies (by a local bakery) and lots of candy (yes, the mom's are going to hate me!)
I had gift bags for little kids (0-4) and big Kids. Little kids got an Elmo book, Elmo or Sesame Street socks, Elmo crazy straw, rainbow colored sippy cups, Sesame street bubbles, light up balls and gummys. Big kids got a rubic cube, canister of rainbow toostie rolls, crazy straw, slap bracelets. I tried to stick to a rainbow colors for them.

What People Drank
I had Elmo and Sesame Street Juice Boxes for the kids, Elmo water bottles and wine and soda.
It was all fun- kids loved it downstairs, but they really did get excited when Elmo came in and surprised him.
Everyone loved when the magician pulled a rabbit out. Easton went and yanked it out and was swinging it around. Of course, we missed filming it.
Most Touching Moment
E's face when Elmo came down stairs and he ran over to him!
