Welcome to Seussville!


In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday coming up on March 2, I wanted to revisit John’s 1st birthday party. Several of the items used for his birthday party could be used for a similar party theme or in celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Read Across America.

In case you aren’t familiar with Read Across America, it is the National Education Association’s annual reading motivation and awareness program to encourage children to celebrate reading on Dr. Seuss’ birthday, March 2. For more information you can visit their website.

Now back to reminiscing John’s 1st birthday party, Seussville!


The Truffula Trees on the cupcakes were made from cotton candy on a stick. My cotton candy melted after about 10min of me putting the trees together. I’m not sure if this just happens or it was too warm in the kitchen, either way I recommend waiting until they are about to be served.

The book covers are part of a set for bulletin boards I bought from Amazon. Cat and the Hat skewers are made from strawberries and bananas. For Red Fish, Blue Fish, Two Fish I placed gold fish snacks in a fish bowl.

The cupcake stand in the middle I made myself using soup cans, cardboard cake holders, ribbon, and wrapping paper. The other two cupcake stands were simply a box that I wrapped up.


Green eggs and ham made from grid pretzels with melted white chocolate disk and a green M&M.

As a party favor I bought some crazy straws for the kids and Take & Toss cups for smaller guest.


Dr. Seuss sign I made with poster board and sharpies.


I made several Truffula Trees for going down the hall and some were placed in the living room. I used tissue paper to make pom pom balls for the top of the trees. For the trunk of the trees I used crepe paper with a marker.


I used Dr. Seuss’ “Happy Birthday to You!” book as a way for guest to write a special note to our baby boy, and John had a great time on his first birthday. This year he will be turning 5, crazy how fast time goes by!
