Party Recap

The party was a success! A non-traditonal twist on the color scheme- no pastels! Everyone enjoyed the bright colors and references from the Eric Carle book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". The games were semi-traditonal with a "caterpillar" flare and burst of color. The food was delicious and simple and came right out of the story itself!

    I'm trying to plan my daughter's 1st birthday party using the very hungry caterpillar theme,looking for the favor tags and other printables (especially to create invitations). Do you have any advice on how to create/find these online?
