Dr. Seuss Inspired Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

Kelly of Paper Stories sent in this whimsical, kid-appropriate Dr. Seuss-inspired dessert bar so I could share it with you. I recently wrote on Stroller Traffic about creating a book-themed party for kids and this is a perfect example of a book-themed party.  In our home, we read Dr. Seuss books all the time and “Green Eggs and Ham” is a staple in the bedtime routine so I really enjoyed seeing this table.  Kelly labeled all the food with fun Dr. Seuss terms like “Yink’s Pink Ink” and “Yot in the Pot.”  I love the lemon cream cheese cake pops, marshmallow pops, and strawberry cupcakes.  Kelly created all of the signage and you can order from her Etsy store here.  Great job Kelly!

  • kelly, it’s ADORABLE!!!!! lots of inspiration for a baby shower i’ll be planning….

  • I threw a Dr. Seuss inspired baby shower for my sister-in-law two years ago and had the best time in the world pulling it all together. I have come up with so much Dr. Seuss ideas since then, it was nice to see someone else’s take on it and gain more inspiration! You can check out my party here.

  • A fabulous example of inspired without being cheesy, overly literal {ha ha} or using yucky target/walmart style character favors & decor. I know Jackson probably thought it was the best day of his life! Yay, mom!!

  • How cute is this? I love the way the mom stuck to clean and simple designs and did not overdo anything – adorable party!

  • This is so adorable!

  • I love, love, love this. The marshmallows are perfect! I did a Thing 1 Thing 2 theme from Cat in the Hat for my twin nieces’ first birthday party and wish I would have seen this beforehand! Great ideas! Mine is here: http://diyingtobedomestic.wordpress.com/2010/06/28/thing-1-thing-2-birthday-party/
