Oh the fun you will have and how your guests will all rave, when you throw a party in the Seussical way! The crazy characters and outlandish Dr. Seuss books have been a part of my life since I was young. I remember having them read to me as a child, re-reading them in elementary school for “Read Across America Day,” and I even quoted Dr. Seuss in my speech at my high school graduation. There is nothing more fun that these crazy and fanciful characters and colors so why not let them be inspiration for a fun-filled event such as a child’s birthday party, baby shower, or even a Dr. Seuss movie night.
Welcome your guests to the party with this bright Seuss-inspired banner. This is the perfect way to set the color scheme of bright red, white, and blue, the prominent colors in Dr. Seuss books like The Cat in the Hat. (Via The Party Glam Boutique)
No need to go overboard with fanciful decorations; bright balloons and decorative table cloths add a perfect pop of color. Add some Dr. Seuss classics to the tables for an added decoration. (Via Hostess with the Mostess)
There are so many great treats inspired by these books, that you can forgo the savory dishes, unless you want to serve green eggs and ham, and have a dessert bar instead. Cat in the Hat cake pops, Yertle’s Turtle Mud chocolate dip and Fish in a Pot goldfish crackers and candy dish are adorable child-friendly treats. Hat cake pops (Via Pizzazzerie)

One treat, two treat, red treats, blue treats. Let your imagination run wild and bring back your childhood with inspiration from these childhood favorites. I know that I’ll be whipping up some of these treats to share with friends when The Lorax comes out on DVD this summer.
