Yes, You Can Have a Sophisticated Elmo Party — See How Martha Stewart Did It!

We shouldn't be surprised that little Jude Stewart has had a succession of beautiful birthday parties. Since she's Martha Stewart's only granddaughter, you know they'll be subtle and sophisticated (just take a look back at the tot's zoo-animal-themed first birthday celebration for evidence of that!). So you can only imagine our surprise when we heard that the theme for a combined second birthday party for Jude and first birthday party for her baby brother, Truman, was Elmo. Yes, everybody's favorite furry red monster — the subject of thousands of birthday parties around the world — would be the central theme for the soiree. But leave it to Martha and Alexis Stewart to do it in a completely new and refined way. Don't believe it can be done? Keep reading for all the details (and some free downloads, so you can do the party yourself!).
