We love themed dinners in our home. And it gets easier each year actually. Because I add or make a few things each year and keep saving it for the next year. Also when I see things in the store all year long I may purchase them there. Many I found in the dollar section of Target or at the Dollar Tree.
Dr. Seuss is big in our house. Even 4 years later and my 5 yr old is now 9 and I have a teenager. They still look forward to a fun dinner. I know I can’t do this when they are 18 so I will keep this up till I no longer can. I will save it- then I will use it for my grandkids
I usually plan ahead- this year I did not. However I had all of these food items on hand and used what I had in my stash. Which made it more fun for me- because I could still pull off a themed dinner (this one is not overly healthy– but it made the kids happy).
I made this cute menu in Photoshop. Based on what we had for dinner. I didn’t allow them to see it till they sat down at the dinner table. Cute and quick!
Mr. Brown can Moo! Can YooHoo drinks
Beezlenut Splash (Water) for me
Plates I found about 2 years ago at Dollar Tree. I buy up cute cheap plates when I see them in colors I use alot. Generally Blue and Green goes with most holidays. They sold Pink and I often use that for valentines day.
Green Eggs & Ham. SIMPLE- Ham lunch meat rolled up up with cheese (toothpick to secure) Deviled eggs made green
Go, Dog. Go! Hotdogs. Simple- baked pigs in a blanket. Using a can of crescent rolls.
Poodles with Noodles. Made from scratch Mac & Cheese (but I don’t care for the box type but you could) Mine was made with creamy havarti cheese YUM!
Made a fruit salad- and alot of trees have fruit so we called it Truffela Tree Fruit Salad
Dessert was yummy! I posted the recipe for this. CLICK HERE FOR RECIPE.
I found these great Seuss items at Target a while back. Along with the fish bag. I saved them just for this party!!
We all get silly at dinner!
And the big guy LOVES the dessert!!
