Sesame Street Birthday Party


My nephew Jonah is now a 1-year-old big boy. He had a party and we celebrated Sesame Street style.

The birthday boy was in a celebratory mood. Look at how happy he looks here :)


We all signed a huge birthday card for him….something he can read and enjoy once he is old enough to read.



For this joyous occasion, I made Sesame Street themed treats in cupcake form.

Here are some Elmo cupcakes


Cookie Monster made an appearance too.


Here’s a picture of the whole she-bang! I was so happy that the cupcakes turned out really cute and everyone loved them, especially the kids.



My niece and I enjoyed a cupcake before all the guests arrived.

My niece helped me set-up the cupcake display, and by helping, she meant eating them.


It was a sunny day at the park and we enjoyed spending it outdoors with friends and family.



We had traditional filipino food dishes and also typical birthday party dishes.

My favorites were egg rolls (lumpia) and an eggplant and tofu dish.


My plate included vegetable dishes, noodles, egg rolls and fried shrimp cake.


Also made sure to save room for the birthday cake


and these delicious rice balls for dessert.

It tasted like mochi but with a crunchy texture on the outside. I thought I’d stop after one serving but I just kept going back for more.

We also had a caricature station at the party. So in between munchies, we would take turns sitting and posing.

She was really talented and only took 5 minutes to complete her drawing. That’s amazing!
