Elmo Birthday Party Ideas For Girls
Finding a child who dislikes Elmo is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Elmo has perhaps become Sesame Street’s most popular character, so it’s no wonder that Elmo-themed birthday parties are popular among toddlers.
A standard Sesame Street or Elmo-themed party uses primary colors and might be somewhat infantile, but this girly Elmo bash takes it to a whole new level! This birthday celebration is colorful and inviting to adults, with rainbow chevron designs and polka dots. Every single detail should be copied. Look it up!
Let’s get girly together! The dessert table, which was stocked with bright sweets, brownies, and other treats, was set off by a unique rainbow chevron (zigzag) and polka dot backdrop. The Elmo birthday cake, of course, was the show-stopper.
Please have a seat! The kiddie table was covered with a brilliant pink satin tablecloth, and the little chairs were wrapped in satin blue fabric with exquisite bows.
The plate settings for each young guest at the table of honor were colorful polka-dot party plates with personalized party hats. To keep the kids occupied, there was a cellophane bag full of crayons with a chevron topper and coloring pages.
Cupcakes, cake pops, and cookies! Oh my! The dessert table was piled high with delectable treats for all of the guests to enjoy, ranging from personalized letter and number cookies to individually wrapped Elmo cake pops to take home. Colorful candies were placed in inexpensive glass jars, which were then adorned with complementing candy jar tags.
The aesthetic included red, orange, and pink colors. To keep the older children entertained, an Elmo bounce house was required. We also brought seating for children and adults, as well as balloons, to the entrance area so that attendees could see the party from afar.
Balloons are nearly a requirement for children’s celebrations, so we used them in a few crucial spots, such as a giant garland on the family’s home. Our balloon artist then added Elmo faces! To save money, we created a cake backdrop with balloon garland that also served as a photo wall.
We had a prop seller make a street sign with the guest of honor’s name to help us create Elmo’s world. A big Elmo cutout was also constructed to greet the children as they entered the homeowner’s property. Other props from Elmo’s world, such as the piano, shade, Dorothy, door, and Elmo’s crayon, were placed throughout the yard.
We also made Giant blocks. The huge blocks added a wow factor to the celebration as well as a fun aspect. The props had the added benefit of being souvenirs for the honored guest. The street sign, construction blocks, and Elmo props may all be repurposed in the child’s room over time for them to enjoy.
Birthday Cakes Ideas
Elmo-themed cakes have become increasingly popular in recent years, and many parents are choosing to celebrate their children’s birthdays with one. If you want to make your child’s birthday party extra special with an Elmo cake, you can choose from a variety of designs that will appeal to your senses.
A two- or three-tier cake with Elmo icing on one side or an Elmo idol on the cake is a nice option. Alternatively, a 3D Elmo sitting atop the cake with a smile on his face is an option. Elmo’s happy face is sometimes placed on the round upper surface of the cake.
Party Games & Activities
At your next birthday party, invite Elmo and his Sesame Street pals. These Elmo birthday party activities will keep the kids occupied while also making party preparation simple.
Super Grover Obstacle
Set up an obstacle course for all the kids to get super on. You can have cones to wriggle through, blankets to crawl under, hoops to hop through, wood plank to balance on, pillow forts to make it through without knock over, add a special section where they have to crap walk through or hop on one foot.
Ideas for obstacle courses are endless. Let each child take a turn putting on a grover-like cape and make their way through the course. Award a small prize when they get to the other side and declare them Super (their name).
Two Headed Monster Relay Race
For this race you need two giant sweaters. Divide kids up into two teams. Set up a starting line and a finish line. Line the teams up in pairs behind the start line. Have the first pair in each team put on a sweater (1 arm per child, shared neck). Explain that this is the way the sweater must be worn for the race – you can have a volunteer on each team to help get the sweater on and off.
On the start of go teams race to the finish line and back, when the pair gets back to the start line they take off the sweater and pass it to the next pair on their team. That pair then puts the sweater on and does the same. The first team to have all their pairs complete the race wins.
Kids will love this realistic-looking pull-string pinata—and thankfully, guests won’t have to beat Elmo to get some candy out of him, thanks to ribbons on the bottom of the piñata that kids pull to release the sweets. This Elmo piñata comes empty, so you can fill it with whatever candy or treats your guests and the birthday boy or girl will enjoy most.
