Red was the color of the day at this Elmo party. Using party goods from Martha's own collection and free downloadable Elmo medallions, it was easy to turn the room red.
"Red party goods — including large paper poms suspended from the ceiling — made it a cinch to set a buffet that fit the Elmo theme," Martha said. "Clip art added more smiles to the room."
The Elmo cake, created by Ron Ben-Israel, was made of "several layers of vanilla cake, covered first in red fondant and then in buttercream 'fur' (piped with a Wilton tip #233)." But it was only for adult consumption, as Alexis kept the treats healthier for the kids.
