Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
In honor of Throw Back Thursday, Dr. Seuss’s birthday coming up this Sunday (March 2), and the fact that it has been quite the busy week, here is the Dr. Seuss theme party that I covered last year.
This could be made into a kids party, a baby shower, OR it could also work well as an adult party (we’re all kids at heart aren’t we!). Below I have included food, decor, etc. from a variety of different Dr. Seuss books. You can do a party including a variety of stories, or focus on one particular favorite.
Shown here, courtesy of ‘Catch My Party’, is a sign in table for a birthday party. However you could do this with a variety of books and just tweek the sign to express whatever works for the party you are throwing.
Hostess with the Mostess created an elegant but whimsical Dr. Seuss themed table setting. Love the red and white striped napkins done up as bows.
This is a great tutorial from LindO Designs on how to make your own Truffula Trees.
This is a great site (click on the image to be taken there) that has a variety of different characters from Dr. Seuss that you can customize their ‘speech bubble’. This would be great for invitations, name tags, food signs, etc.
Love this fun trivia game based on Dr. Seuss books. Unfortunately my pin on pintrest didn’t link to an actual printable but I think this would be a fairly easy document to make yourself.
Kate over at ‘And Everything Sweet’ made these adorable cake pops. If you notice, she pulled from three different stories: The Lorax (truffula trees), Green Eggs and Ham, and Cat in The Hat (Thing 1 and Thing 2).
These are adorable cupcakes from Emily at Tasty Kitchen. The hats work great for the theme AND look delicious!
Make a splash with treats inspired by One Fish Two Fish… blue jello and Swedish fish courtesy of Simple Girl blog.
The Sneetches is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss stories. I love what Jill over at ‘Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons’ came up with as a healthy and fun Sneetch Pear Snack!
I love this idea. Found this image on Pintrest but the website it came from no longer exists. Print the cover image of ‘Oh The Places You’ll Go’ on circular labels and stick to large rainbow lollipops. Great for a party favor!
Bookmarks are a fun and great party favor and an easy DIY. Erin over at Neaten Your Nest made these for her Dr. Seuss theme party by printing out the images and then laminating them. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” -Dr. Seuss
