I went to a birthday party for a 2-year-old boy and they had made everything from the cake to the cake topper Elmo themed. When eating cake on plates next to a table-cloth with a napkin underneath I suddenly became aware that everything was or had some kind of Elmo feature. All the effort my friend had put into making her little boys(Tom) birthday party made me want to do the same for mine.
