Dr. Seuss Birthday Party

Dr. Seuss Birthday Party


So glad you found my little oasis of Dr. Seuss party ideas here on the web; I’m excited to be able to share them all with you!

Dr SeUss Birthday Party-17

So many people WANT to add a heavy dash of Dr. Seuss to their parties, classrooms or library celebrations but aren’t always able to follow through. Why? Sometimes they don’t know where to start, sometimes  they have too many ideas, and worst of all, some of them are too scared of being the creators of a few epic Pinterest fails that they don’t even try!

But I have a secret to share with you. All the party ideas in this post were crafted by people who generally consider themselves on the non-crafty end of the spectrum. What does this mean for you?

It means you can do this!

Easy tutorials, easy menus and easy games to play make this party doable. Click through this post and you are on your way to some seriously spectacular Seuss celebrating, Sam I am.

Dr. Seuss and his many many characters are so bright and colorful and full of whimsy that they make for the perfect birthday party theme. As party of an article for Yum! Food and Fund for Kids magazine, I was able to work with Random House to create a fun Dr. Seuss birthday party full of Dr. Seuss fun.

From the Green Eggs and Ham appetizers to the Cat in the Hat striped desserts with a side of Goose Juice to wash it all down, this party was filled with details inspired by all our favorite Dr. Seuss books. One of my favorite details was our cake stands–goldfish bowls filled with goldfish and topped with plates for serving! All goldfish were humanely released into nearby ponds after our party.

This party was also put together with budget in mind! I took a trip to the dollar store to pick up fun items — like sponges, goldfish bowls, crazy straws and colorful serveware — to hand craft most of our party decor items. The sponges on painted striped sticks along with some paper fans in mason jars made perfect centerpieces. I also used tall striped sticks with tissue poufs on top to create some easy truffula trees. The pom pom garlands strung all over the party were put together by my kids; it only required a bag of pom poms, a wide eyed needle and skein of colored thread.
