Can you believe that Sesame Street has been around since the 1960s? Granted, it changed a lot over the decades…but still. That’s quite a run!! Sesame Street is very iconic and the characters are definitely immediately recognizable and very well known.  Personally, I think that is what makes a Sesame Street party so fun!! a few shapes on a solid colored object and POW…Elmo, Cookie Monster and friends come to life.

I was actually one of the few kids growing up who didn’t watch Sesame Street.  I honestly still don’t think I’ve ever completed an entire episode.  I know…weird, right???  I don’t know if it was because my parents just never put it on for me or if I tried and failed to latch on to it as a youngster.  Even so, I know a whole lot about Sesame Street for not having been a little watcher.

My Elmo, Cookie Monster and Sesame Street Inspired party packages are definitely among the most popular packages.  What I think is the best part, though, is how many of the parents who are throwing adorable Elmo and Cookie Monster parties for their kids watched the show way back in the day.  It makes me smile to see kids getting excited about the same characters and shows as their parents:)

There are millions of amazing Sesame Street party ideas.  There is just so, so much you can do with the characters and so many food and decor ideas that can really bring the party to life.  Here are some of my favorites:
