Cat in the Hat party!

Standard

Ok, let’s see…I owe an update from Keaton’s 5th Birthday party…You should be able to click here and see all the pictures, but we did a Cat in the Hat theme and he loved it.

We had Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes – we used red velvet cake mix, red foil liners, vanilla icing and blue cotton candy. A friend printed “Thing 1” and “Thing 2” up for me and I used a paper punch to get perfect circles and then I used a black sharpie to outline the circles (to give a layered feel).

A close up of the tags…

Zach slaved over the Cat in the Hat cups (we couldn’t find white electrical tape, which is what I envisioned, so Zach cut strips of white duct tape in half and stuck them on cups. No matter if your cups are circular or square, this will be a battle to the end, so be prepared) 😉

Grandma acquired some paper Cat in the Hat hats for the kids and it was a huge hit!

I made this super fun wreath (we intend to use it for all birthday celebrations from here on out!) a 12″ straw wreath, a TON of balloons and a ton of floral pins (and about 45 mins!)

We also strung a balloon banner this time – Zach blew up the balloons and then threaded them and hung! Such a fun touch – they’re still up, almost a month later!

So there’s the party!
