Party Ideas: Aidan's 2nd Sesame Street Birthday Party

My dear friend Bron put together this super-cute Sesame Street-inspired party for her son Aidan's 2nd birthday. Everyone was asked to come dressed in the colour of their favourite Sesame Street character. It was a sea of primary colours and delicious goodies. I especially love the handmade paper lanterns - old school cool!, Thanks Bron for sharing your tips:
