{The Cat in the Hat 1st Birthday}

Hello friends!

Our latest party is a Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat inspired party for baby Liam's 1st Birthday.  We chose the traditional red, blue, white and black color scheme and focused the party on the Cat and Things.  My balloon go-to-girl created fantastic sculptures of the characters and a blue red and white background.  I created a rosette banner with the birthday boy's name.

The focal point, of course, is the magnificent cake created by Jovanna Valentín.  Three tiers depicting a peeking Cat and Thing 1 and Thing 2 standing atop the Hat.  She also created a little cake shaped as a fishbowl with a little fish splashing out.  She also made the Thing hair cupcakes which I embellished with a Thing 1 tag.

Cookies by Peggy created hat and fish shaped cookies and Pastry Gallery's Noemí Nieves created the marshmallow pops and jell-o cups.  I embellished wooden demitasse spoons from Shop Sweet Lulu with blue glitter polka dots to give it a little extra.

I designed six different water bottle labels and paired them with paper straws and little flags.  Other delicious treats included popcorn and an assortment of candies.  A sign sitting next to a plush Dr. Seuss thanked the guests for a thoughtful gift and offered striped paper takeout bags for kids to fill with candy and treats.

A separate table with another balloon centerpiece held the party favors, the framed invitation, a book and Liam's party hat.

Guests would play around with custom made photo booth props, a bouncy house, popcorn and fairy floss stations and lots of fun!

Hope you enjoyed this amazing party!
