I just luv to plan the kids Birthday Parties!!
My son was turning 7 & wanted a Dr Seuss party.
What do you do with a bunch of 7 year old boys?? I read a bunch of the books & came up with some real cute chalenges for the kids to do. I made up posters for the 4 events.
can not get this pic to load straight!!!! sorry.... moving on...
Then being a summer birthday, thought creating journals for kids to decorate would be a cool way to keep them writing all summer.
I bought journals from the dollar bins at my local craft store, covered them in white & red, then offered stickers, crayons, markers & such to let the kids create the look they wanted.
Favors have soo many options!! We wanted to include a bookmark, that I made up with graphics I had. Also added sweet little tag from Cat in the Hat & Alex for joining us at the party.
Food is difficult....
you need "real" food to fill up a bunch of hungry boys....
Poodles of Noodles became home made mac & cheese with funky twirlly pasta
Green eggs & ham became Green Beans & Ham
Potato salad with green beans topped with crispy bacon on top.
Cheese trees was cute! Yinks Pink Ink from Pink lemonade is a must!
Here is the birthday boy working on his journal.
Easy colorful center pieces, tissue paper poofs! Sooo easy & can be made in any colors you need
Alex also asked for a special birthday chair. This is a little white scrolled chair I had from when I was little, but the scrolls helped make lots of spots to tie ribbon form. Made a special Alex's Day sign, added a tissue poof and he felt like he had a kings chair!
And here is the center piece I made for the party. I used stacked hat boxes & made Cat in the Hat coming out the top! He was the star of the show!!
Then here is the Birthday Boy!
& here is the family pic
Cherish these years, goes sooo fast!!
