Best Sesame Street Themed Birthday Party Ever — My God Son Turned ONE!

Share the Love

I spent the weekend prepping for and attending an amazing first birthday party. My wonderful god son Liam turned one over the weekend and to celebrate his momma threw him the mother of all first birthday parties. The chosen theme of the day was Sesame Street, and his fabulous mommy should really be an event planner, because she went ALL out, and it showed. It was a backyard barbecue-style event that was decorated so fabulously it looked as if we were having a block party right on Sesame Street. The kids got to get their faces painted by an awesome artist (PattySweetCakes), jump around in the giant bouncer, and take a swing at the piñata. Meanwhile, us adults enjoyed one of the last beautiful days of summer and munched on yummy dishes like guava empanadas, shrimp shish-kabob, and sliders. It was truly the perfect party!

Look at what you can do for your little one with the right patience, planning, and persistence, on a very practical budget. (And if you want to know where she got some of the fabulous one of a kind details, just holler, and I’ll share all the details.) I can tell you that the one of a kind cake is another great creation from Anne over at Pink Cake Box. Happy, Happy Birthday Liam!

    I looove the Liam character sign. Where can I get it. That link doesn’t have anything. :(

    • ManWifeDog says:

      At the time it was purchased from the Etsy vendor we listed. Etsy vendors don't always sell/offer the same services at all times, since everything is handmade. Perhaps you should sign up for a free Etsy account, and reach out to the vendor to see if they might still make them for you. Be sure to tell them you read about them on Man Wife and Dog. Best, Charli

    I'm helping my sister plan her son's (my God son) 1st birthday party! Thanks for the inspiration and great tips!!!

  11. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
