Project Birthday Party is complete

Today was Sophie's birthday party! I had been planning the party using Pinterest for a while now. That is where I found the theme and many of the ideas. Some turned out better than expected, some... not so much and I had to improvise.
Here are the results! Idea source links will follow.
The cake

Elmo Oreos

Gift table

The menu:

Chocolate chip ice cream
Goldfish (Elmo loves his goldfish!)
Fruit platter
Elmo Oreos
Strawberry lemonade
Soda for grown-ups

Ice cream idea
Tissue poms
Elmo printables - used for cup stickers, banner clouds, lettering, and decorations
Original inspiration behind the cake. I improvised.
Cookies - The sticks kept making the Oreos come apart so I improvised again.
Favor bags and tablewear from Party City
