Dr. Seuss Party Part 4: Invitations & Extra Details

K has been 2 for about 3 weeks now, and I am finally going to show you the invitation to her Dr. Seuss Party, along with other little details! After seeing many cute ideas for invitations online, I actually decided AGAINST using a photo of K, polka dots, or stripes.

Dr. Seuss Party InvitationWhen guests arrived, they were greeted with a small task! Write a special note to the birthday girl in her Happy Birthday book. Sadly, I still need to write a message in the book to my sweet 2 year old.

Sign-In BookBesides the table in the entry that had the book sign-in and the party favors, I didn’t do a lot of decorating. I blew up a ton of small yellow, red, white, and blue balloons that were left scattered around on the floor. Kids played with them and they were an inexpensive way to add a pop of color to the living room floor!

I did create a banner using my new Silhouette Cameo, which I got as an early birthday present. At first, I felt guilty for using soooo much paper to create it (there are 4 layers), but it is sturdy and generic enough to use again. In fact, we kept it up for my 30th birthday party the following week!
Birthday BannerIn an attempt to spruce up the food display, I re-purposed two food cans to hold utensils and straws. After cleaning the cans and peeling off the labels, I covered the outside with scraps of fabric and ribbon. For the inside, I used a piece of coordinating scrapbook paper to cover up the ugly stains.

Decorated Utensil CansWe were able to re-use the cans at my party too! I’m a little obsessed with the turquoise and red color scheme right now, so I’m sure we will reuse these throughout the summer.

Since we had such a mixed range of ages, I didn’t plan a lot of games or activities. I laid out crayons and Dr. Seuss coloring pages for the kids to color as we were waiting for everyone to arrive. They also had fun playing in the playroom with K’s kitchen and again with the balloons!
Dr. Seuss Coloring PagesOverall, K’s 2nd birthday was fun and affordable. I will be listing the invitations, cupcake wrappers & toppers, Thank You Fish baggie toppers, Thank You door sign, and Sign-In sign in my Etsy shop.

    I would love to use your Thank You sign on our teacher’s doors for Seuss week at our preschool. If you don’t mind sharing. You are quite talented and I love your site.
