The Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party (18 photos)
“The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is my daughter Ella’s favorite book, so it was the perfect, sweet theme for her 3rd birthday party!
The great thing about this party theme is that it can be done on a very small budget. Colorful fruit was a large part of the table display and the food labels were made by scanning the characters directly from my daughters book and creating simple tags using toothpicks to hold them in place! Whole pieces of fruit made the perfect stands for the tags, which narrated the caterpillars food choices across the party table.
The tablecloth was simply a 2 1/2 yard cut of fabric with serged edges. I bought the lemonade dispenser at my local Hobby Lobby and the colorful cardboard straws were an etsy find.
Each child was given a tin of Caterpillar Food (aka M&Ms) to take home. The tins were actually leftover from my own baby shower (the same ones can be found here), and I created the labels by printing the Caterpillar on card stock and punching the circles out with a circle punch that can be found at any craft store.
The yellow paper lanterns above the party table were purchased at Hobby Lobby and the green ones were found at Amazon. The incredible cake was made by a friend of mine!
