Very Hungry Caterpillar Party

Very Hungry Caterpillar Party_Paper Lantern Mobile

Today I am sharing some photos from my friend’s Very Hungry Caterpillar 2nd birthday party.  You may remember the dots & stripes banner banner I made for the party a few weeks ago.  All the details that Annett, (the party host), put together for the Hungry Caterpillar party were so amazing that I thought you’d like to see too.    I am always so blown away when I go to a party where things have been thought out and each detail has meaning.

The cute paper lantern caterpillar mobile was hanging across the middle of the room and above all the food that that hungry little caterpillar ate through.    It’s so easy to make and looks great!  The instructions & info on how to create can be found at Pottery Barn Kids.  I also love their tutorial for bibs, they are super adorable.

Follow along as I take you through the book via all the food that was found in the kitchen……..

Very Hungry Caterpillar Party Theme

One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and – pop! – out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry little caterpillar. 

  • On Monday he ate through one apple.  But he was still hungry. 
  • On Tuesday he ate through two pears, but he was still hungry. 
  • On Wednesday he ate through three plums, but he was still hungry.
  • On Thursday he ate through four strawberries, but he was still hungry. 
  • On Friday he ate through five oranges, but he was still hungry.

and one slice of watermelon.  That night he had a stomachache!

The next day was Sunday again.  The caterpillar ate through one nice green leaf (see leafy green lettuce above in the salami photo), and after that he felt much better.   Each food item found in the book was at this party.   Aren’t you impressed?   What a great way to have a fun theme and feed your guests at the same time!    Everyone loved the food.

One of my favorite things were the lollipop party favors.  She used a circle brown bag cardstock tag with the “thank you” message. They looked great and added so much color to the room.
