Jax's Mom is a woman who knows what she wants and so it was no surprise to me when she came with an arsenal of pictures for her baby boy's 1st birthday. I was so excited she had chosen The Very Hungry Caterpillar as his birthday theme because it is such an iconic book and everything about it is perfect for a little one's party. From the bright color palette to the simple narrative, the abundance of foods and of course the cutest little mascot, The Very Hungry Caterpillar theme excites all the senses.
After pouring through the ideas from my client I got down to work bringing her vision to life. Here is a look at how it all came together.
Bursting with bright colors and tons of theming, the cake table was the main focal point of the party. The spectacular cake and smash cake along with caterpillar cake pops and fruit themed rice krispie treats were more than enough to fill up the hungry bellies of the guests. All were created by local baker A Custom Kreation
. The adorable cookie filled berry boxes and book favors were a perfect way to send guests off with something sweet for later. The hand painted cookies were created by the very talented Voodoo Cookie Co
Welcoming guests was the caterpillar himself in a sweet little photo spot complete with custom sign, lots of balloons and honeycomb goodies
. The custom caterpillar
was created using a red jumbo latex balloon and a balloon garland made up of mixed green latex balloons. I added on some eyes printed on label paper and long purple latex balloons for the antennae...a simple, low cost way to make a BIG impact.
Another photo area available was the custom balloon wall
with adorable signage (purchased from Oriental Trading Company). The family and guests enjoyed taking lots of photos with the cute props and of course, the adorable birthday boy!
If you are a fan of the Very Hungry Caterpillar and are looking for a perfect theme for your baby shower, a 1st birthday or a gender neutral toddler party...I highly recommend putting together a party with this theme.
