cat in the hat party {guest post}

We are excited to have a guest post from our dear friend, Melynie today! She recently threw a Cat in the Hat party for her little guy and we were in awe of her creativity. We just had to share it with you...

Happy 4th Birthday to my little Buddy!!  What a fun 4 years it's been with this kiddo.  We celebrated in Seussy style.
Favor bags:  sidewalk chalk, bubbles, spikey blue ball that looks like a 'Thing' to me (Target), Dr. Seuss alphabet stickers (Michaels), balls and kazoos (Target).  They also got pinwheels and goldfish crackers.
 The bunting was easy to make.  Two yards of polka dot fabric and 4 pkg extra wide, double fold white bias tape.  

 Kid table with a goldfish (swimming), some goldfish (Pepperidge Farm), and striped tablecloth (ordered a 100 yd roll from Oriental Trading Co).

Made cleanup easy on myself with striped paper straws (, plastic deli baskets and liners (Joann Fabrics)
 Cat in the Hat pops made from a slice of one jumbo marshmallow, three regular big marshmallow, and strips of strawberry fruit by the foot.  Strung them on skewers and had an instant treat!
 Love that responsible little goldfish in the book, so we had goldfish all over.  Here are little bags (Target) with handmade labels (paper from Michaels).
 Pinwheels (a kit from Michaels) doubled as decoration and favors.
I found a picture of the fish online, printed it out and taped it to a real goldfish bowl with tissue paper 'water'.
 The hat on the table is from the "What's in the Cat's Hat?"
 game and doubled as centerpiece and party game.
 His 'cake' was a bunch of Thing-y cupcakes (used the star tip and buttercream frosting).  Cut out the cupcake flags and wrappers on my cricut.
 Daddy ran the photo booth.
 We had a basket of costumes and accessories that they could use for props.
