Michelle's Pink Polka Dot ELMO Birthday Party

Our sweet customer Michelle sent us photos this weekend of her daughter's fabulous 2nd birthday party.  Her theme was an ELMO girl's party in pink, orange and red polka dots!

Michelle compiled a detailed list of her finds and I'll share those at the bottom of the post.  She made a lot of the decorations herself and her friend Stacy Hart Photography of Birmingham, Alabama beautifully photographed the entire event.

Let's start with the gorgeous pink and orange polka dot ribbon topiary centerpiece above...wow!  Michelle made this using our easy topiary tutorial.  She added the pipe cleaner curly-q's for a whimsical touch and I just love that!

Michelle picked the Girl's Elmo Party printable collection from Shindigs and it is a huge set of goodies for $29!

The infamous HowDoesShe? balloon wreath tutorial came in handy for Michelle - more pink, red and orange balloons and more of my favorite pipe cleaner curly-q's make this a special and inviting door decoration for her daughter's 2nd birthday.

Ahh...the food table!  Amazing!  More topiaries, more polka dots, Dorothy's fish bowls and even our popular cake/cupcake box tower tutorial all decked out with Elmo printables!

What a beautiful day for a party!  I love how she decorated the tent with tissue poms, polka dot balloons, little red chairs and a polka dot table topper.  Looks like a magazine, Michelle!

Thank you for sharing your daughter's special day with us, and all of your hard work!  Here's to you and your beautiful family, Michelle!

Michelle's tips and resources:

This is amazing!  I know so many moms will be so happy to see your ideas and be so inspired by you, Michelle.  Thank you!  - Sally


  1. I love this idea! I was thinking of doing a sesame street themed party in the fall time! All of the colors and birthday party supplies tied together perfectly here. The cake looks amazing and the center pieces are awesome. Going to have to check out your easy topiary tutorial. Thanks for sharing !

  2. Thanks so much for the posting! I just made my very own balloon wreath and linked the blog posting back to you and How Does She.com. I love all the ideas here. I can't wait to make the topiarys!

  3. What a fun birthday party! Is that a 10x10 tent?

  4. What a beautiful party.
    I love this idea.

  5. Love this party idea and the colors look great! Can you please tell me where you got the buckets that you used for the ribbon topiary centerpieces? those would look great for my daughters party. Thanks!
