Dr. Seuss Baby Shower


Over this weekend, two of my friend and I threw an AMAZING Dr. Seuss baby shower for our other best friend.  My friends and I had such a great time putting it together and it really came together perfectly!!  Let me show you some of the highlights!

We offered the guests a mimosa bar with frozen berries and OJ.  We found these glasses on clearance at Party City right after the new year and added Cat in the Hat stickers to the tops and some striped pipe cleaners to the bottoms that were also found on clearance. 

We thought it would be fun to have a little craft for our guests to do.  We ordered these wooden blocks from Etsy and had all the guests Mod Podge a paper square to each side.  We cut up some Cat in the Hat books to add to them also.  When the Mod Podge was dry, we had our guests add vinyl numbers to one side.  This way when the guest of honor wanted to take "month" pictures with her new baby, she can use the blocks!




I was super excited when I found these drinks at Target.  The cans were the PERFECT color!


For lunch, we had shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches with pasta salad.  It was soooo yummy.  And we made sure to eat in style.


These little candle holders were filled with goldfish crackers and then we added a tea light to them. Some teal mardi gras beads were laid out for a pop of color also.

The dessert table was my favorite table of the party.  Everything was so amazing and yummy!





There were chocolate covered strawberries and my friend Molly made these INCREDIBLE peanut butter balls.



These hat vases were dollar store vases with red and white felt hot glued on them.


As favors we passed out candy bars wrapped with Thank You wraps.


We also asked everyone to write a little note to the baby in a copy of The Cat in the Hat.


The banner you see was made by yours truly.  I used my Silhouette to cut it all.



A bunch of the guests went in together on a group gift, a 4 in 1 high chair, that my friend was registered for.  One of the ladies wrapped it to look just like the cat's hat.  I was severely impressed!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen this rosette wreath that I made out of the left over books that we used for the wooden blocks.  Check back on March 10th on a full tutorial on how to make them yourself!


And as a last minute craft, I threw together this little wooden sign (I know, I just threw it together right?  Well I did, I used some scrap wood I had in my garage, cut it, spray painted it, hot glued it, and used my Silhouette to cut the vinyl).


I am so excited for my friend, Kelly!!  Molly, Amber and I put on one heck of a party and I hope Kelly enjoyed it as much as we had planning it!  I can't wait to meet her new baby boy!  Congrats Kelly!!!!
