Our friend Janey, over at Me Likey Food, was kind enough to share these amazing pictures of her son's 2nd birthday party.
In a Dr. Seuss theme.
If the Party Pug's human wasn't so insistent on a dinosaur party this year, we would be all over this idea, like... well, like a dog on a bone.
But I digress.
Here's the invitation - we love the rhymes.
No party is complete without a perfectly appointed refreshment table. Love the colors and the red, hanging lanterns.
Here's where it gets awesome.
Have you ever seen such adorable, themed food?
The menu included:
*One Fish, Two Fish (Not All Red & Blue Fish) - naturally colored goldfish
*Hop on Pop(corn) - seasoned popcorn
*Three Cheese Trees - cheese cubes stuck into foam tree forms
*Yertle, the (Caramel) Turtle - rolo pretzels with M&Ms
*Green Eggs, (no) Ham? -Janey bent a round cutter to get the right "fried egg shape" for these most-perfect cookies.
*There's a Wocket in my (Pita) Pocket - this Broccoli salad in mini pitas
*Yink Ink Drink - Pink lemonade, of course
And don't forget the chocolate fudge cupcakes with homemade Dr. Seuss toppers.
For decor, Janey got crafty with some "Bristol Board" (a heavyweight art paper) and markers.
These Who-Trees created the perfect ambiance.
And Janey projected images of Thing 1 and Thing 2 onto more Bristol Board, that she colored and cut out to place near the party entrance.
A real balloon offers a nice 3D pop.
A final wonderful touch? Janey says that all birthday parties are donation parties. She posted a sign, quoting The Lorax: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." and asked that donations go to a local food bank.
Beautifully done, on all counts.
Party Pug thanks Janey for sharing (and be sure to check out Me Likey Food for some great recipe ideas - Janey is quite the cook!)
