We changed things up a little bit from last year. It wouldn’t be fun to do it exactly as last year. (FOUND HERE)
Will start with the dinner. – Green Eggs & Smoked/Cooked Ham – Lorax Grits (yes I made that up but its yellow/cheese grits), Cat in the Hat fruit skewers.
Decorations were easy–
Cat in the Hat (HAT) from the dollar store
Cat bow tie I made for my daughter’s outfit and added it for our dinner decoration.
I already had red/blue buckets from the 1.00 section of target. I have almost every color known to man on hand for parties
Tissue paper just tucked in the buckets
Lorax mustaches on the straws (cut out with my silhouette machine)
Mason Jars with candle tops screwed on filled with juice
2 Dr. Seuss Books
Standing up picks- that say “Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss” Are left over from last year. Thing 1 and Thing 2 Pins- pinned onto the tissue paper- from last year I made.
Blue plates/napkins – From the dollar tree I got last fall for my daughter’s birthday party. Left over plates
Big Lorax mustaches Cut out on my silhouette and taped onto red/white paper straws
Close up of the bucket
Time for dinner
I love my mason jar glasses and tops- adding lorax mustaches to them were a must – and so fun!
How totally awesome is that HAHAHA Cracks me up!
My daughter prefers the big staches (ME TOO!)
I have the best husband in the world. He puts up with me. And he enjoys it too. He gets a kick out of my little family parties I am a lucky lucky girl!
He plays the part well!
I made these last year- I made them again. Cotton Candy (blue) for Thing hair. Red Velvet cupcakes and butter cream frosting (homemade). These were taken to Brooke’s class. I am a good room mom The kids in her class were so excited to see me when I came in. They have been practicing their sign language. I came in and every single kid signed “thank you” to me. Some tried to sign other things to me too. Its alot of fun. I can read their lips but I let them practice anyways. It gives them a thrill.
They look so cute!
Tonight’s dessert. Blue Jell-O with Swedish Fish. (2 of them) for the book – One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. The kids thought it was cool. (Big kids did too) They look like they are feeding in the cups. And the air bubbles help too.
Just for fun- we put a light behind cup- to see if we could see the fish better. Not really but it looked pretty cool
It was a fun night. Simple dinner. Kids were happy with Breakfast for dinner. It was quite yummy!
Happy 108th Birthday Dr. Seuss!!
