Welcome to the second post of the birthday party series I am putting together. I love throwing my kids a party. The thing I failed to think about when I had my kids was having them all in the summer months means having separate parties would be harder due to family members being located in multiple locations. Reality is they can’t come up each month for a new party so we have to combine the parties. You will see once we added to our family we started to combine the parties and each kid got their own theme. A new post will be added every Saturday to share all the kids parties.
This has to be one of my favorite parties I put together for one of my kids. Books are a staple in our home and we have TONS of books. I think my favorite part was the food that was based off a book. You can see in the pictures we had a variety of food and we displayed the book that was used for inspiration. I’ll list below the list of books and the food associated with it. We used board books as center pieces and my mother put together a candy bar for the favor table. Unfortunately, this party did not have very many guest and I think there was only one maybe two kids that showed up.
Milk and Cheese Book – Cheese and Cracker Tray
The Cat in the Hat – Cheese and Grape Tomatoes Skewers
Green Eggs and Ham – Deviled Eggs with green filling and ham sandwiches
The Very Hungry Caterpillar – Fruit Tray
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish – Fish crackers in a fish bowl
Hop on Pop – Popcorn
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – Meatballs
Hola Jalapeno – Chips and Salsa
Little People Let’s Go To The Farm – Veggie Tray
Little Blue Truck – Wheel Mac and Cheese
Mac and Cheese, Hot Dogs and Peas – Hotdogs
My mother used cardboards to make the fruit from The Very Hungry Caterpillar book to have a tossing game for the kids. She also put together a candy bar as favors.
I created a puppet stage for the party and we still have it today.
The cake table had multiple books used to display the cupcakes and we used a cake stand for the Wegman’s cake.
I made the birthday banner by using pages from an old book. I cut out the letters on the Cricut using pages from a book and glued together multiple pages for the back of the banner.
This was my favorite theme I have put together over the last five years.
