Perhaps the most famous street of childhood is Sesame Street, which makes it THE place to be for a little boy’s first birthday party! This fun themed rendition by Alicia Johnson, of Centre of Attention, is full of ideas that star Elmo and delightful decorations. Alicia worked with her client to present the fabulous birthday cake, character-inspired cupcakes and dessert table as a visual invitation for birthday party fun. Zoom in for a celebration with blue skies, a sunny day and sweet Elmo, as captured by Melissa Artifex.
