Party Details!

23 Jan

We had some people ask about our decorations and food for our very hungry caterpillar party, so here are the details! Leave me a comment with any additional questions and I would be happy to respond! We had so much fun decorating this party around such an awesome book! Enjoy!

Caterpillar Balloon from Jeannie's Let's Celebrate (w/ picture slideshow on our TV)

Very Hungry Caterpillar mini cupcakes using this recipe & some food dye!

Caterpillar Cupcakes

Eric Carle Garland from Amazon

Photo Garland with Monthly Pictures (I hung the pictures with clothespins and then put a sticker with the corresponding month on them!)

I covered the boxes that the silverware came in the Eric Carle dot print from the book!

The Spread

Underneath the food, I wrote the text of the book. First up with Deviled eggs with "One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and -pop- out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar. He started to look for some food"

Continuing on "On Monday he ate through one apple, but he was still hungry. On Tuesday he ate through two pears,but he was still hungry.."

"On Wednesday he ate through three plums but he was still hungry, On Thursday he ate through four strawberries but he was still hungry, On Friday he ate through five oranges but he was still hungry."

We got creative with Saturday and this is where we did the bulk of the meal, and put "On Saturday he ate through one piece of chocolate {chip cookie} cake, one cheese stick, one stuffed shell , one slice of swiss cheese,one slice of salami, one piece of pizza bread and one cupcake, that night he had a stomachache. "

We finished with a mini salad bar my Mom made. This was perfect as a few of our guests have various food allergies, so this ensured everyone could eat a little something! "The next day was Sunday again and the caterpillar ate through one nice green leaf and after that he felt much better."

On the side table when you walked in, there was a Very Hungry Caterpillar book for people to sign and photo strips of some of Ethan's instagram prints to take home! Edith Drew designed these for me on photoshop!
