I can’t really claim the credit for this Dr Seuss birthday party, as a matter of fact, I provided a couple of suggestions, but I didn’t make this awesome party. My friend did, but she doesn’t really blog, so she gave me the OK to share this.
Oh, and the awesome thing about this party? My friend is a total health nut, so nothing is processed, dyed or anything crazy like that. She even made green eggs without dyes.
Decoration is simple, lots and lots of books and stuffed animals. If you act now, Kohls has their Kohls Cares For Kids program with Dr. Seuss books and stuffed animals.
The table decorations are also simple. Bright primary colors for the cups, plates, and napkins. You could even get disposable bright colored silverware, but we used real ones.
A tea pot in the middle filled with flowers provides the perfect touch of whimsy.
And the food? Green eggs and ham, cinnamon rolls, homemade toast, and pineapple.
How did she make the eggs without dyes?
She blended spinach and eggs together until it made a nice puree and then fried them up in the pan. It’s quite an impressive green color and didn’t really change the taste (or so I’m told, I’m not a big fan of eggs). My kids ate all of theirs though.
Actually there was nothing left over. Seven kids can eat quite a lot of food.
And the party favors?
More books. Each guest at the party got their own Dr Seuss book (picked up at Half Price books). They’re super cute mini books, and the birthday girl wrote a personal note to each kid.
Oh, and you can see the “cake” in the picture up above. We had cake pops, covered in all sorts of natural yummy goodness.
FYI, those are the same cake pops that were allegedly stolen in our news lesson from Monday.
