Fancy Frugal Life: Elmo Birthday Party

Elmo Birthday Party

I just love a good at home birthday party! Today I started to think about my daughter's 3rd birthday. I can't believe she will be 3! Yikes! Where does the time go?! She has very clearly said she wants a Dora party over and over :)

Its kind of tough to make a character theme party cute. I dislike the party store's generic supplies. Plus they are expensive! I have to admit I did go that route for my son's recent Transformer's party. He wanted to do a bowling party and it's hard to make those guys cute!

Here are a few details from last year's Elmo party for my little girl.

I hot glued feathers to the Elmo hats to add a little glam.

Those invites were dollar store blank cards with ribbon and a paper flower from Michael's glued on.

For the banner I cut out two sizes of circles and glued on letters to decorative scrapbook paper. Punch a hole and tie with matching ribbon.

Those tissue paper poms are great for birthdays! Here is a great tutorial for them here

I put them over the kid table we rented. By the way the kid table was only $25 and well worth it!

I bought the Elmo party tags on http://www.etsy.com/ and tied them to the favor bags. The pillow dress was from etsy also.

The sign is a canvass found on clearance from Michael's. I glued scrapbook paper, ribbon, and feather boa to it, along with the birthday girl's picture!

Finally, my father sent an Elmo to surprise the party! It was a little scary for some, but my daughter eventually warmed up at the end :)
