Dr. Seuss Themed Kids’ Birthday Party

Let’s first address the elephant in the room. This party took place in December, nearly five whole months ago. But it was so cute, I still wanted to share it!

Anyways, moving on …

Elias was turning 3, and Eva was turning 1 in December, so I decided to do a joint birthday party with family at our house — which we had just moved into in November. I went with the Dr. Seuss theme because (1) it’s adorable; (2) my children love to read; and (3) it was a good choice for a dual boy-girl theme.

My ultra-talented brother and sister-in-law created the invitations for me, as well as a scrapbook page for guests to fill out (much like I did for Elias’ first birthday party in 2011) and super cute cupcake toppers. (They also have an Etsy site.)

It was a fairly simple birthday party, but I still wanted to add something fun and extra special. I decided on a photo booth, and Irene really took the lead in putting it together. She made some really fun decorations and props, and the resulting photos were great. Irene even brought her updated version of a Polaroid camera so guests could see their pictures immediately; those will go into the scrapbook with the notes from family.

Irene’s photo props were so darn adorable, the photographer, Tiffany, who did Eva’s one-year photos suggested we use them in the photo shoot. The results were awwwww-inducing cute! Tiffany also did our family photos in the fall.
