.:Cat in the Hat- 1st and 3rd Birthday Party:.

We had a joint birthday party for Audrey and Leo a couple weeks ago- I'm finally getting around to posting about it!

I decided on the 'Cat in the Hat' theme since they both loves books, Dr. Seuss and it was a fun theme. I'm so happy with how it turned out! 

I found a vendor on Etsy for the invitations and other printables. 

The Outfits

I found a local shop owner to make the "3" and "1" shirts for Audrey and Leo. I love how they turned out!

I found Audrey's tutu on eBay. It was a bit sheerer than I hoped but it was still cute.

The decor

Hubby drew the poster for the "Pin the Hat on the Cat"

My friend made these chalkboard poster signs for me. I love how they turned out!

I ordered these number balloons- they are huge! They also last forever...

Front entry

The chocolate bar favours. We also gave Dr. Seuss books to the young guests.

Best wishes book for Leo

I made matching hats for Audrey and Leo. 

The Food

The only picture I took of the full table- the kids playing under it while we set up!

There was more food but I ran out of time and didn't take pictures of it all.

Games & Activities

We just had a couple activities since most of the children were quite young.

The Fun

We are so glad so many of our friends and family could celebrate Audrey and Leo's birthdays with us.

And then the dress-up clothes came out...

Present opening chaos

It was a great party and we were all exhausted afterwards! Audrey fell asleep at the dinner table and Leo went to bed super early too!
