Rave was amazing. I keep this short and sweet...tons of photos to edit and tons of cleaning to do:) These are the first set of photos. These are all "before shots," morning of. These show some of the dessert buffet setup, the kids' lunch line and a few other adorable details..Many more pictures to follow. I took about a million!

Kids had a blast, adults had a blast. Super perfect.

maribeth said...

so cute! having a little boy who loves cookie monster, i have to give props for being able to create such a precious party from a sesame street character. my favorite is definitely the favor bags and the thank you sign and the stars on the sidewalk.

OH MY GOODNESS! All your ideas and details are absolutely awesome! I'll be borrowing some ideas for my daughter's 2nd birthday next month and will be sharing ... and giving you big Kudos... on TTFTBlog! Awesome job, Kristy!

mamabearstamps said...

OMGROVER!! I'm SO glad I found your blog!! Grover was my favorite character when I was little, and I passed that love to my daughter (10 now). There are SO many fabulous ideas here!! I'm seriously considering having a Super Grover party now... for myself! ;)

Phonam Gatela Garcia said...

Hi there! So inspired by your post. My boy is turning one and love your Super Grover concept. Where did you get the foil balloons by the way?


Tiffany@Fizzy Party said...

Speechless for the moment. SO over the top fabulousness. Let me count the ways I love this:
1.The backdrop is amazing.
2.Great use of everyday items, the little pails, the jewelry tree.
3. The guest towels adds a great touch. May have to steal that idea :)
4.The ribbons around the toilet paper, so easy yet dresses it up beautifully.
5.The lables for the milk is a big glittery fabulousness.
5. the lunch line
I could go on but 5, ya know :)

Mrs.Rivera59 said...

WOW!!! Is all I can say! How unique, creative and colorful! I loved, loved it! My daughter is madly inlove with Grover and I googled "Grover theme parties" and this came! Wow! However, I am on a tight budget and this looks like it could have been pricey. Any tips on still making so creative but frugal? What did you do for invitation? Thanks! Yajaira~!
