Oh, the joys of The Very Hungry Caterpillar brought to life in a first birthday party… it just always does my heart good to see this theme as the chosen favorite!  The cookies and cake in this darling dessert table styled by Lauren, of Capes and Crowns, are gorgeous renditions of the artwork of Eric Carle.  Edible art at its finest!

I love the bright red cake stand that coordinates so beautifully~ and the gorgeously vivid party stationery that is cheerful and bright and spot-on for this Caterpillar’s celebration!

The cookies depicted the fruit that the hungry caterpillar ate…

The was each cookie is painted so closely resembles the painted tissue paper artwork throughout the book!

 

 

The cupcakes lay on a green leaf…

…with adorable, coordinating toppers and wrappers.

The smash cake was a precious and perfect as the bigger cake…

The birthday boy also had his own “caterpillar dirt jar”~

Spoons displayed quotes from the book~

Water bottles were party-perfect with fabulous bottle wrappers and straw flags!

Favor bags held gummy caterpillars for each guest…

What a gorgeous dessert display for a darling theme!  Thank you for sharing, Lauren!

CAMILLE’S FIESTA ~ MEXICAN THEME BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child!
