Partying with the Cat in the Hat, part 2

No party is complete without fabulous food.  While I can’t say the food was “fabulous”, I can say that the names for each food item were! Each item available for noshing on had a Dr. Seuss inspired name from one of the many books by Theodore Geisel.

Here is the spread.  Water bottles were wrapped with more printables from my Cupcake Express party package and the tent cards and larger food labels were also from that pack.  I figured out how to import those PDF files into Pages (Publisher for Mac users!) and was then able to type up the menu items {using the GRINCHED font of course!}.

And now to the best part…

My adorable little guy digging into his smash cake.  My hubby made him a cake that looked like Cat in the Hat’s hat.  At first, all my little guy wanted was to lick the red fondant but he eventually got the idea.  He didn’t seem to want to get dirty so instead of using his hands, he just leaned in and grabbed bites with his mouth.  Too precious!!!

Messy Guy

I think my favorite part of the party was planning the menu and finding all sorts of cute ideas for food!

Can’t wait to plan the next party {which isn’t too far off, my Cutie Pie is going to be 5 in just a couple of weeks so I have to get busy on his party at the end of April.  Thankfully for the 5th birthday we party it up and Pump It Up so they do all the set up and clean up! YAY!!!  Just gotta get some invites done and sent out.}

I’m off to eat more party food for lunch.  As is usually the case, I prepared WAY too much food.

My Hubby – The New Cake Boss!

Nope, this cake did not come from a magazine (ok, well the idea did). It came from my kitchen and my hubby! B has gotten VERY into cake making lately – we TIVO all the cake shows like Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss. It all started with our second born, CJ’s, birthday cake. Then he made a cake for our friends 2 & 4 yr olds birthday party. And finally THIS creation, no this masterpiece!!! I am so proud of him and can’t wait to see what he does next!!!
