We threw a Dr. Seuss themed party last Saturday in our back yard, and I thought I would share our Seuss-themed ideas. We decorated the tables with Dr. Seuss books, and added Dr. Seuss references wherever we could.
|Thing One and Thing Two had to go inside because one |
of the kids was nervous around dogs
|The Happy Birthday banner is made out of paper coasters. The cat in the Hat cut|
out, that I think is intended to be a classroom decoration, came from amazon.com
|I made spikey tissue pom poms, which were also hanging from the pecan tree|
that shades our patio
For the inside, I scanned a spread from the inside of the book, and added a little poem we wrote:
Our little June is turning one
So join us for some birthday fun
We hope that you can come and play
To make this an extra special day
There will be cake, and hot dogs too
The only thing we need is you!
For the food, we served:
Frankfurter roast- from The Sneetches (hot dogs)
Hop on Popcorn (kettle corn)
Bippilo seeds (jelly beans)
Grinch Dip (spinach dip)
Fish in a pot- from The Cat in the Hat (goldfish crackers in a tea pot)
Cat Hats (strawberry and marshmallow skewers)
Pink Yink Ink- from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish (pink lemonade)
|I made little signs for all of the Seuss food with a font I downloaded|
and images from the books they are referencing
For entertainment, we had was some sidewalk chalk, a bubble machine (that broke), a photo booth, and a McElligot's Pool magnetic fishing game that I made out of things I had around the house (I will try to post a tutorial later).
|I think he caught all the fish at once!|
here, if you need any jewelry supplies) volunteered to take pictures of the party for me. She did an awesome job. She also did an awesome job helping set up the party, with a little help from our husbands.
|Ignore the bare dirt around my patio. My dogs won't let any grass grow there.|
|Green Ham cake!|
|There's always next year.|
