Character Parties week continues here on the blog with one of my favorite parties to date: a girly Elmo party with modern patterns, including a bold rainbow chevron.

It’s a great opportunity to pull in unique baby-friendly concepts, but perhaps modernize them to appeal to the adults in attendance. We get so many requests for fish/under the sea parties, that I [...]
