Our son, Jonathan, just turned ONE this past week. It has been such a pleasure watching him grow and we look forward to many years to come. For Jonathan's birthday party, my husband and I decided to give it a Dr. Seuss theme. 

The decor:
Thing 1 and Thing 2 Welcome wreath
This wreath is very easy to make. You will need a styrofoam circle, yarn, a wooden letter, and some ribbon. Simply wrap the styrofoam circle with yarn neatly and embellish with the wooden letter and ribbon. 


The Lorax pumpkin

 The menu:

 To go along with the theme, we served Who-Food. 

Lorax Punch - Orange Punch
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish - Goldfish crackers
Green Eggs & Ham - Deviled eggs and ham
Poodles with Noodles - Pasta Salad
Cat in the Hats - Strawberry & Banana skewers
Three Cheese Trees - Cheddar, Pepper Jack, and Swiss Cheese
Quilligan Quail - BBQ and Buffalo wings
Biggle Balls - Swedish meatballs
Schlotts Knots - Rolls

The food:

Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes and Smash Cake

I made all the cupcakes and the smash cake with Funfetti cake mix. We added food coloring the the icing to get the perfect colors for Thing 1 and Thing 2 hair.  The cupcake display is made up of 3 boxes we had around the house just wrapped in wrapping paper and stacked. The other cupcakes with Dr. Seuss pictures were also made by us. To make the cupcake toppers you will need construction paper, Dr. Seuss character printouts, cake pop sticks, a glue stick, and a 1 inch circle paper punch.

Here is Jonathan exploring his smash cake. He hates getting dirty LOL!

After the cake and opening his gifts, we had some activities.

By the end of it all, the little boy was worn out. I hope he had a Happy Birthday! We love you Jonathan!!!
