Another super fun, food-related “Sesame Street” party idea is to provide your guests with blue Cookie Monster cookies “loaded with chocolate chips, chopped cookies, and melty chocolate in the center.” Just make sure you bake enough because these are definitely going to be a hit.
Not much space in your kitchen to bake dozens of cookies and host a kid’s party? Never fear, Peerspace is here! You can easily use our platform to find and rent spacious event spaces complete with a kitchen.
For example, we love the idea of hosting your Sesame Street party at this modern event space with a full kitchen in Beaverton, OR. Its superb layout and splashes of color fit the theme and needs of your gathering. Cookie Monster would definitely approve!
We love this “Sesame Street” party idea! If you’re at all crafty, DIY decorations are another great way to save money and have fun in the process. Just Measuring Up suggests all kinds of DIY decorations: pennant banners, party hats, tissue paper pom-poms, and more.
Planning a party is about more than food and decoration, although those are two major elements of bringing the theme to life. You’ll also want to ensure that your guests stay engaged and have a blast by planning plenty of activities, especially exciting ones like games.
To bring this idea to life with ease, book a fun-filled Peerspace venue, like this aptly named Fun in the Sun outdoor space in Bowie, MD. It’s the backyard of a home that includes a pool, a charcoal grill, speakers, and tons of lawn games.
Hostess with the Mostess suggests a few creative games that you might not have considered: bean bag toss, ring toss, Oscar the Grouch’s can knock-down, fishbowl challenge, and more! You can also buy a variation on “pin the tail on the donkey” at Party City where players have to try to place a party hat on Elmo while blindfolded.
For this “Sesame Street” party idea, set the tone for your upcoming event by sending your guests invitations that will make it abundantly clear what the theme is. Whether you make your own themed invitations or order them online (we love these super cute invitations from Zazzle, and they have a huge and varied selection), be sure to send your save-the-dates well in advance to maximize the chances that all your invitees will be able to make it.
Table centerpieces are an ultra-easy way to put a theme into practice because they’re highly visible but not large-scale like many other types of decorations, and guests tend to see them up close because they’re sitting or frequently visiting tables throughout the gathering.
As with other decorations, you can make your own, or you can buy them – these Elmo and Cookie Monster centerpieces from Party City are a great option, as are numerous centerpieces that you can buy through Etsy.
Keep them outdoors and splashing around for hours after reading our kids’ pool party ideas!
