My little boy just celebrated his 2nd birthday, and I am beside myself with old age… er, I mean I’m giddy with joy. Planning the birthday party this year was actually quite a pleasure! I can happily say that I didn’t stress myself over anything, and everything fell into place.

Since our little boy loves Sesame Street, naturally, it became the theme for his special day.

Sharing some of the party details here for all you DIY partyphiles like me. Enjoy Vito’s Sesame Street themed party–I know we all did! (Suppliers are mentioned after the photos).
