We were so low on available wall space, I ended up using the entry-hall closet door! They were adorable, and may still be hanging up. ;)
I had seen lots of blog posts about serving the food from the book for the party, and I just couldn't resist the idea! I wanted to make some kind of 'sign' for the food, so that people would 'get' that it was the food the caterpillar ate. There are several food signs available on etsy that you can purchase and print, but no one had all of the food signs for (what I thought) was a decent price. And since we're a one-income family, I wanted to save as much $$ as I could! So we copied the pages from the book that show the food on a color copier (this is allowed for personal use!), and I cut them out and mounted them on green construction paper, and wrote what they were above the picture.
We taped them to craft sticks, and then were able to tape and/or stick the sticks into the serving dishes.
Instead of sausage we served hot dogs, which is our standard party food!
To 'pretty' up the food area I cut a yard of fabric that featured the food from the book in half, and taped it to our buffet. (I am hoping to give it a second life by sewing us some much needed snack and sandwich bags with it!)
Hubby worked his cake magic (his usual duty for any party!), and we had vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with green frosting for the caterpillar's body and a red frosted chocolate cake for his head.
We didn't have a tray big enough, so we just set him out on the table!
Hm, what's this?
Thank goodness buttercream frosting comes right off!
