Seusstastical Party in Pink

Finally got around to bloggin these photos. Sorry it took me so long. I referenced a lot of other blogs on how to's so hopefully I can find them all again to link. I'm not going to go through the details of everything for the sake of time, I'll just show you and point you in the direction of a good tutorial.

This party was for my niece who just turned three. It was very last minute lol, but fun :) I had ideas already since I had been planning on doing Avalon's first bday in Seuss with a pink twist. I really love these colors.

Balloon wreath for the door. Made with one of those straw wreaths from the hobby store and the metal hooks to hook the balloons on. Super easy and cute. Tutorial

The outfits... My mother in law helped me with these. We did outfits for both the niece and nephew and my two kiddies. Print outs on the iron on transfer paper. Not too professional looking but they still turned out cute lol.

Avalons was just a little dress we found at Dollar Tree for a buck and added the matching ribbon across the bottom.

And my first attempt at hair bows. Matching ones with initials for the girlies. Tutorial

And decorations, I got out my scrap booking stuff. I printed out a bunch of Seuss quotes and put them up all over the living room...

The food table...

Truffula Tree pops, Tortilla pin wheels.

Green eggs and ham of course ;)  Last party I did was a big ham covered in parsley (I think) per the Dr Seuss cook book recipe. This time was much easier. I actually just took ham lunch meat and soaked it overnight in a zip lock with some food color and water. Held the color very nicely.

Got some more use out of these cute little bowls ;)  They're getting a little worn though ...

Labeled water bottles. I just cut and pasted and used the clear packing tape Tutorial

Favor bags with leftovers from Z's first Seuss party

The cake. I was going for topsy turvy-ish version of the classic cake in the Cat and the Hat book..
And the children ;)

cat and the hat cuppies... the hats are marshmallows and melted chocolate

Thing 1 and Thing 2 cuppies with cotton candy. Tip: make sure you use a bc frosting as the can frosting will most likely melt the cotton candy pretty quick. Especially in this Texas humidity.

I have to say I really loved the way the cuppy papers looked ;)  Those were super fun.
