Hudson is absolutely obsessed with Sesame Street, so we threw him a Sesame Street birthday party this year. He loves all of the characters and just stops whatever he is doing if he sees anyone in a store who lives on Sesame Street.
Because I knew I’d have a one-month-old, I decided to have Hudson’s party at one of his favorite places, The Little Gym. The Little Gym staff does all of the set up and clean up, they keep track of who gave presents (for thank you note purposes), and provide drinks, napkins, plates, and forks.
The staff was so helpful to us and I am so happy we had the party there. They also took care of all of the activities for the kids– something that is hard to do for toddlers.
I did choose to get our own decorations and favors (Little Gym provides a balloon) to bring more of Hudson’s favorite Sesame Street characters to the party. I loved the balance of low key and easy party and still being able to decorate a bit.

Party circles/centerpieces and Sesame Street character favor bags

Cookie favors from A Dozen Eggs with character tags and “Hudson Street”
More favor bags and the yummy Publix cupcakes. Publix makes the best cupcakes!
Cups for the kids from Kelley Cards
Gummy worms for Oscar’s Pet Worm “Slimey.” Hudson was so excited about the gummy worms!
Rubber duckies for all the kids just like Ernie’s Rubber Duckie.
All of Hudson’s Sesame Street “friends” were at the party, too!
The plates and party hats are also from Kelley Creations. They are SO cute!
My sweet friends at Sweet Birdie’s Nest created all of the paper stuff for us like the cupcake toppers, the circle centerpieces, the table confetti with Sesame Street characters, the favor tags, water bottle labels, banner, stickers, and food labels. It all turned out perfectly! They are so easy to work with and really helped me out this year! They also made Hudson’s invitations that I’ll show you later. I highly recommend them for all of your birthday party needs.
A Dozen Eggs creates the most delicious, most creative, and most adorable cookie favors! We used them last year for Hudson’s green ham cookies (for Green Eggs and Ham) and they made some adorable “Hudson Street” cookies. The toppers were our favorite part– after the taste!
Plates, Party Hats, Favor Bags, Bubbles, Play Dough, and Cups
Kelley Creations created all of these adorable items by hand! By hand! I am just so impressed with what they do and their creativity really made some adorable favors for Hudson’s friends.
Each favor bag included a bottle of Sesame Street bubbles, Sesame Street play dough, and a lollipop. And each guest also took him a Sesame Street cup, a rubber duckie, and a Hudson Street cookie.

Publix is our go-to place for delicious cupcakes!
Rubber Duckies and Lollipops
These are from the always inexpensive and always easy Oriental Trading
