Tara Guérard Soirée designed a fun backyard Sesame Street carnival pool party for Adam’s 1st birthday. “Big Bird” hand delivered letterpressed invitations to guests and the children were invited to join Adam for his celebration! Elmo and Big Bird waved as everyone approached from the street and an embroidered birthday flag hung from the balcony of the house greeted guests as they arrived. 

In the backyard, a huge striped carnival tent awaited with games such as the ring toss (to win a live gold fish), the dart game, and bean bag toss. The food tent for kids featured mini picnic tables with hot dogs, hamburgers, cheese pizzas, sliced watermelon and pineapple, and mini ice cream and gelato treats. Adults got to hang out in the cabana house and were treated to a full bar and a menu of assorted sushi rolls, local corn and pea succotash, petite caprese sandwiches, watermelon salad, and petite kobe beef filets. The 3-D big bird birthday cake was the hit of the party! 

Take home favors were LL Bean tote bags with a beach towel, bubbles, swim goggles, and Sesame Street themed toys in colors to match the party.
