A Project For

Ruby's 2nd Birthday

Location

Description

Ruby’s World was my daughter’s 2nd birthday party. I I wanted to do an Elmo themed party for her without all the usual “sesame” stuff. I made the Elmo, Big Bird and Oscar from silk flowers and leaves. My favorite details were the fur and feathered covered cake stands I used on the dessert table and the drawing of the Sesame gang with Ruby. Other Elmo details: I served “Dorothy” sandwiches using Pepperidge Farm goldfish bread. We gave mini trash cans as favors filled with Sesame bath books, Elmo crayon cups, crayons, and Sesame Street story books.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration was the flowered sculptures I made for the party.  I did these first before anything else.

Decorating Style

whimsical!

Project Details

For the cake stand and cake pop holders, I used styrofoam cake dummies.  I covered them with fur or feathers and then sprinkled them with sprinkles so you couldn't see the foam.

Favorite Items

The cake pop stands and the flowered sculptures

Advice

I love finding a way to bring characters into a party without actually using them.  For example, using red, blue, green fur and yellow feathers.  Those details always come out terrific!
