Elmo Birthday Party

What a weekend!
First Thanksgiving... then decorating for my sons 2nd Birthday party that was held on Saturday for friends and Sunday for family..Boy it was a busy exciting weekend!
I decided to do my sons birthday theme Elmo + (dorothy the goldfish) & Cookie monster characters from Sesame Street- since they are his two favorite.
A lot of ideas came from pinterest or other party blogs.
I really enjoyed decorating his party! And a big Thank you for all those who helped out!
See for yourself!

That is one intense party! Kids lose their minds for Elmo so I'm sure it was a hit!! Question - where did you find those apothecary jars? I need to start collecting them for my wedding and I'm at a loss.
