This Year's Over-The-Top Children's Party

As some of you may have guessed (based on my post of last year's Wonderland festivities) that I like to go a bit overboard with theme parties. I freely admit to it. :)

This year when my girls' birthdays rolled around again, I already had a plan in mind. For now, while they're small, it's much easier (and more fun!) to throw a joint birthday party. Lilly turned 4 on June 14th and Evie turned 2 on the 25th, so we chose a free June weekend and went full throttle. (And by 'we' I mean that Hubs said "Whatever you want, dear," and I went full throttle.)

What better way to celebrate childhood than with Dr. Seuss?

I chose only Seuss themed foods:
Green Eggs... No Ham. Just green food coloring in the yolk mixture!
Purchased... not homemade. 
Pasta salad with cheese, pepperoni and veggies topped with Italian dressing
Layers of Jello and Cool Whip
Cheeky ;)
Pink lemonade - AKA Yink Drink
Red velvet 'Thing 1 & Thing 2' cupcakes with blue tinted frosting!
It's lovely that the birthdays are in June because we're almost always assured nice weather. We had a very brief rain in the late afternoon that day, but most of it was beautiful! We decorated the cherry tree and set up the tables underneath.

We enjoyed the day, ate our cupcakes, had a cooling water balloon fight, and enjoyed the company of our friends and family.

Even Mommy's friends got in on the dressing up. :)
Watch out for this one... he carries a Wocket in his Pocket!
The birthday girls and their cousins
Lots of friends!
Can't wait to see what we think up for next year! Hope you're all having a great summer!


  1. How clever! What a great party theme!
    Can't believe you actually made green eggs.

  2. How could I not!? ;) And they were delicious.

  3. This is so so clever, and so so cool! The small small crumb made me laugh too...!
    What fun, and the birthday girls look so happy!
    Thankyou so much for your lovely comment, too :)
