a very happy caterpillar

July 5, 2012

i have so much to catch up on!  so many parties to share!
today i will start with a custom 1st birthday party.

i did these items for a long time friend.
she wanted to use the book "a very hungry caterpillar".
she and i both loved the bright polka dots
featured throughout the book.
 for the banner i used the polka dots as the background
and cut letters from green glitter paper.
the mom also really liked the sun,
so i incorporated that here too.


we both loved the idea we had seen on pinterest of
using the foods from the book.
i made signs for each food which she stuck
in the plates or bowls of food with kebob sticks.
for saturday, we made a larger version with
the menu of foods being served for dinner.


of course we had to include the caterpillar!
i designed (with SCAL) & cut this cute guy out on the cricut.
he was the perfect size to hang on the highchair.

i think that this is such a cute idea for a first birthday party
and there are so many cute ideas on pinterest!
