Gavin’s Dr. Seuss Birthday Party

on May 30, 2012

Pictures Pictures Pictures! John did a wonderful grabbing shots of the entire day. We are missing some decor shots, but I drop them onto the blog from my phone asap.

Edit: Here are the photos from my phone 🙂

Front Door with covers from Seuss books (I bought a bulletin board set off of Amazon, it had most of the book covers and characters)

Back door!

I downloaded a Seuss font and typed up our favorite sayings/quotes and said which books they were from. I also found stickers and fun foamy stickers at Michaels on clearance! Score!

I had these frames on the tables outside and had the Seuss books open on the tables!

We had a wonderful time celebrating Gavin’s 3rd birthday on Saturday! The weather was beautiful until about 5:30 when it dropped 20 degrees and a nice wind picked up, but most of our friends and family were troopers 😉

Our Seuss-Inspired Menu:

Thing One and Thing Two BBQ- pulled pork (with bbq sauce on the side for people to choose from, Sticky Fingers of course)

Hop on Pop Chicken (i was stretching on that one…)

Green Eggs and Ham

Schlott’s Knotts- rolls

Yot in a Pot- baked beans

Poodles Eating Noodles- pasta salad

Prairie of Prax- coleslaw

Who Hash- potato salad

Yink Pink Ink Drink- pink lemonade

Moose Juice and Goose Juice- Moose drool beer and Goose Island 312

Ok. Photos. Here we go!

Gavin’s sentiment was “can I just go jump in the bounce house now?” I made sure John got photos BEFORE they ate cheese popcorn and had yink pink ink drink.  I bought the ties and heart from an etsy store and ironed them onto Target shirts. Cheap and cute!

Bounce house fun! Thank you Foleys for letting us borrow it for the day!

I feel like I never get photos with anyone. Well I made John take this one. Prior to this we were making stupid faces without each other knowing it, John had to bring us back down to earth. We are idiots 😉

Opening his very own drum set (just like Daddy) from Phil and Shannon. I’ll make sure when they come over next time to bring this out JUST for their enjoyment.

Everyone enjoying the drums.

Oh Miss Jen, you have patience of a saint!

Gavin’s Seuss Cake, Deerfields Bakery rocked it again!

It stayed lit long enough for G to blow it out! Make a wish Buddy! (and try to not stick your entire hand in the cake this year)
