And I couldn't resist planning a Very Hungry Caterpillar party! This is totally a theme I would choose if I could do my girl's first birthday all over again!!
First off, check out these invitations!!! So clever and so CUTE! Source
And I love how the food is set up on these parties. Your menu idea is already chosen for you b/c you can just use all the food the caterpillar ate on his journey through out the book. (just don't forget to poke little holes in every piece of food like the caterpillar did in the book!!) Its all in the details!!Check these parties out. HERE and HERE
And what a cute balloon caterpillar decoration! I love it!
The decorated sugar cookies are so cute!!!
And for a party favor/activity, equip your quests with little butterfly nets. You can have a caterpillar/butterfly hunt like THIS party did. Make caterpillars out of pom poms or egg cartons cut up and painted. Or you could even have a candy/food hunt...the kids could be little caterpillars on a quest for food!!! The possibilities are endless. So much fun!
And last, but not least...check out ESTY.com ** for this adorable caterpillar photo prop to display pics of your growing caterpillar! I love it!
