I can’t believe that my daughter will be 3 in May. Three going on 15. This one keeps me young 🙂
And I can’t believe that it’s been almost 2 years since her Dr. Seuss birthday party and I have yet to share the details. I wanted to share details of her birthday party so that I could finally give credit to the amazing bloggers that gave me so much inspiration.
Since we owned practically all of the Dr. Seuss books, it was a more than appropriate party theme.
First, the decor. I stuck to teal, red, yellow, and white, which helped me get some basic decorations from Party City. I used white vases that I already had and jazzed them up with ribbon thanks to this inspiration and some twirly vase fillers and boas that I found at the craft store. And the morning of, I sent my Dad out for cheap, simple bouquets to fill the vases.
As guests entered, they were greeted by hanging Dr. Seuss quotes, thanks to Annie’s Eats and her awesome idea here.
Every single food item was Seuss related.
Deviled eggs as “Green Eggs No Ham” and pasta salad as “Oodles of Noodles”. With inspiration from the Sweet Designs by Amy Atlas blog here, I got the idea to put fruit on sticks as “Truffula Fruits”. And I found the great idea for “Cat Hats” here at Anders Ruff.
I ran out of time to make a full-blown cake, so I made Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes thanks to the help of some homemade cupcake liners and very high frosting. And the green jello? It’s “Oobleck”!
The Girl Who Ate Everything has a great tutorial for “Green Eggs and Ham” here.
“Star Belly Sneetches” thanks to Pizzazzerie’s post here.
And rolled wrap sandwiches as “Truffula Trees”.
The Hip Hip Hooray Blog had a wonderful idea for a personalized banner here that really helped liven up the present table.
And thanks to the wonderfully talented Kristy Makes, I got a fantastic guest book idea here that Jude will cherish for years.
Waiting for the guests when they left were individually wrapped sugar cookies with a sweet note inspired by Giggles Galore.
And the birthday girl got her very own Cat in the Hat smash cake 🙂
I think she had a good time 🙂
