Cat in The Hat Party

My baby boy turned one! I was inspired to do a Cat in the Hat party since I saw Amy's "It's a Twin Thing" Post... I thought it would be an original 1st bday theme... It was a lot of fun to plan starting from the invitations. Here are some pics...

Just us :) Happy Birthday Little Bean!!

Thing One and Thing Two's Cotton Candy :)

Thank you Madeline for sending me over your goldfish from your Seuss Baby Shower :), I had them hanging down from the ceiling.

Centerpieces were The Cat In the Hat stuffed animal with "truffula trees" aka Fluffy pens in glass bowls :)

Table Set-Up

The fabulous cake by http://www.apieceofcupcake.com/, it was delicious!!

Goodies bags! A mix of candy, Seuss pencils and goldfish crackers...

Water Fun

A great idea for a birthday/summer fun!

This mom had great ideas to keep the party wet and cool on a nice hot Miami day... Water guns, water balloons, even some "fishing", another great tip was the "Jello Cake" (her son is allergic to cake so she opted for a fun way to sing him happy birthday and he can actually enjoy it. Check out the fishies in the bowl!
