I chose Dr. Seuss for the theme of my son's 1st birthday party. Here are the invitations:
-For the banner, I cut pages from a book. You could find an old tattered book at a used book store to cut. I got mine from Kohls for $2 on clearance, so I didn't feel too bad.
-We had a book signing table for people to write a note to the birthday boy on the pages in a Cat in the Hat book. (again $2 at Kohls) It will be a great keepsake.
- We had a book shelf and "reading chair" with Dr. Seuss books on it.
- The big photo collage is made of pictures from baby Greyson's first year.
Green Eggs- green colored deviled eggs
And Ham- Sliced deli ham roll ups with cream cheese inside
Cat in the Hat sticks- Marshmallows and strawberries on a skewer
One Fish Two Fish- Colored goldfish (with a fish net for scooping)
Hop on Pop corn- Kettle corn
Truffula Trees- Brownie pops dipped in green/blue colored white chocolate
Truffula Stems- Twizzler licorice
Blue Ink Drink- Blue colored sprite
The cupcakes were just blue frosted cupcakes, but I stuck toothpicks with cat hats and Dr. Seuss quotes in them.
Here are some free printables for you:
And of course, we had to take a picture of all the cute kiddos with Dr. Seuss books!
It was a successful party and fun memories were made! My baby turned ONE!
