Move over Martha…I got this!
So M’s 3rd bday is coming up and man this one is driving me crazy! She wanted a Cat in the Hat theme this year, and it’s like pulling teeth to find anything “Seuss-esq” here in Canada. Me, being the party planner that I am still everything is under control… kinda!
Sign made, balloons ordered, all the accessories including making Thing 1 and Thing 2 out of clay and feathers done! Cake, cupcakes, cake pops, candy table – CHECK! Even have a costume for the bro-in-law to get forced into to read all the kiddies a book. Funnily enough, it actually didn’t take that much coaxing to actually get him to do it BONUS! I was able to find some Cat in the Hat teaching supplies to save me some time and effort, which was perfect timing – banner, cut-outs, huge Cat – awesome!
Crayon rolls in Cat in the Hat fabric, activity booklets made and stovepipe hats all done. I’m even going to paint their faces before the book reading and take a pic in the make-shift photo-booth I’m planning. Even have a fishbowl full of goldfish crackers in mind for centre pieces! Food will be ordered and made night before. Man, I may actually be ready for the 3 hours of craziness I am willfully torturing myself with!
Would love to hear how you all celebrate your little ones birthdays! Big or small…themes and all! (OMG I’ve been so encompassed in everything Seuss I’m actually speaking in rhyme now).
To top it off, I think I’m actually more excited than she is. Yes, as you read this I know what you’re thinking, that I’m completely nuts, going overboard and possibly may have OCD. To that I concur. I think you need a little-bit of crazy to have kids and to fully enjoy them. So cheers to loving Sweetpea and being a little off my rocker!
PS – I’ll be sure to take pics of all my crazy creations and share them with you!
