Theme: The Very Hungry Caterpillar
For Owen's 1st Birthday the Very Hungry Caterpillar was a perfect theme. I made the food from the book out of modeling clay then painted them and used a straw to push a hole through - lots of bright colours !
Cake, smash cake and caterpillar cup cakes all look great.
I used lots of etsy links for downloadable labels.
Games we had were throwing a ball through the caterpillar's mouth and the big apple piñata which was a re-fashioned cardboard box covered in a green plastic table cloth.
The decorations and favours were all based on the book and were loved by everyone.
Top Party Tip
Spotlight sell a few licensed Eric Carle fabrics that you can buy by the metre for backdrops or table cloths.
