My Baby is Turning ONE!

With the party in a little over a week, this mama is going to be VERY busy crafting up lots of fun things for my little guy’s birthday!  For months now I have been collecting ideas on my Cat in the Hat Pinterest board.  Pinterest seriously has everything from great party decor, crafts for favors, treats, and food ideas so it has made my party planning MUCH easier.  Plus it totally helps that we just celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd and LOTS of pinners were pinning ideas for celebrating that.

Here are just a few ideas that I LOVE and will be working on over the next week.

Party Printables

I found these cute printables from Cupcake Express on Etsy and couldn’t beat the price.  Usually I make my own but without Cat in the Hat clipart or Cricut cartridge it was easier to go this route this time.  Now to get printing and cutting!

Cat in the Hat felt party hats

I have lots of felt left over from the Valentine Chair bags I was making and selling so I am hoping to get these made for my boys, my hubby, and myself.

Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts

These will be for my hubby and myself to wear for the party.  Everyone in the family has to be in Dr. Seuss attire.  I’ll be making a “Happy Birthday to ME!” shirt for little guy based on the Happy Birthday to You book.  My older 3 boys already have matching shirts I found a few months ago at Target on clearance for $2.74!!!

Thing 1 and Thing 2 party hats

The homeschool group I am in recently made paper hats similar to these at a playdate for Dr. Seuss.  I was thinking that I could make these out of felt and attach elastic and korker ribbons at the top.  We will see if time allows ;)

Shirts and Hats


The menu was finalized today with lots of cute Seussical names for the food.  I inserted the food tags and tent cards from the PDF files I purchased into a pages document and used the Grinched font to type up the new name, what book it was from, and then the real name of the menu item.


I am feeling better now that I have really sat down and started to think about all I have to do I am not quite as overwhelmed.  Just have to get all the supplies and food then do all the prep.  I got this ;)
