Selected as Party of the Day on August 23rd!

Sophie's Dr Seuss Party

Taste Of Luxury * By Taste Of Luxury *  in Birthday


Party Recap

My daughter is a big reader and her favourite books have always been Dr Seuss so what better way to celebrate that love of books than to create a party with her favourite author.

All the food was themed to different Dr Seuss books and the colour scheme was based on the Cat in the Hat colours of Red, White & Blue.

I was so happy at the end of the party when she said to me "That was the best party ever". :)


Party Highlights

  • Best Moment

    Seeing Sophie's happiness on the day, seeing all the kids and parents having fun, watching the kids nearly knock over anything in their paths to find the feet and watching the parents have a go on the giant frisbee once the kids were finished.

  • Funniest Moment

    When one of the littlest kids smashed the frisbee into my husbands stomach from 1 metre away by accident.

  • Most Touching Moment

    Sophie telling me it was the best party ever at the end.

  • Best Dressed

    Everyone. :)

  • Desserts

    Cake cake and more cake.

  • Party Favors

    I made ribbon wands for all the kids as well as personalised bubbles, personalised mini lollipops and each child received a bookmark with a Dr Seuss quote that I also made.

  • Activities / Games

    Wacky Giant Frisbee throwing competition, The Foot Book scavenger hunt, Place the heart on the Grinch and Barbaloot Marshmallow Scramble.

  • Budget

    Around $600.

  • What People Ate

    We had star belly cake pops, cat in the hat push pops made from layered vanilla bean cake, fresh cream and strawberries, truffula tree fairy floss, French macarons & much more.

  • What People Drank

    Customised water bottles and beezlenut splash (lemonade with jelly in the drink dispenser) for the kids, tea & coffee for the parents and a little Malibu for me when we had finally finished the party & clean up. :)
