My best friend is having a baby in December, so we planned a Dr. Seuss themed party for her! The menu included everything Seuss- from Green Eggs and Ham to Cat and the Hat cupcakes.
My favorite touch was adding a rhyme next to all the food items so that the food was identified. I had fun making up the rhymes, and included some quotes from the books and finished it out to fit whatever food item I needed. Everything was made in a Word document, and I copied and pasted some pictures from the Internet. I’ve included the rhymes at the bottom of the post, so feel free to use them if you want!
The food included meatballs, pigs in a blanket, veggies, cupcakes, cookies, fruit snack/marshmallow kabobs.
I didn’t get any pictures of the meatballs, but they were so good, I want to include the recipe here!
- 2 (16 oz.) packages meatballs
- 1 jar (8 oz.) grape jelly
- 1 jar 16 oz.) spaghetti sauce
Mix all ingredients in crock pot. Cook on low 6-8 hours. Switch to keep warm setting on crock pot and serve using tooth picks straight out of it.
We got our invitations from this Etsy distributor and they turned out perfectly. She will customize your order, and I got lots of comments on how colorful they were!
Here are most of the rhymes I used for the party. Some of them are direct quotes from the books, while others take lines from the book and then I made up the rest to fit the food item.
Green Eggs and Ham: I like them, I do! Green eggs and ham for you, and you, and you!
Cat in the Hat cupcakes: If you haven’t had a cupcake today, you should, because cupcakes are fun, and fun is good!
Fruit bite hats (similar to the toppings on the cupcakes, but on skewers): Snack, snack, eat a snack, eat a snack of fruit bite hats! (Adapted from Hop on Pop)
Meatballs: Big J, little j, what begins with J? Jelly Jordan’s jelly jar and jam MEATBALLS begin that way! (Adapted from Dr. Seuss’s ABC’s)
Pigs in a Blanket: For Liz’s shower, we’ll have some fun, and eat hot dogs rolled up in buns!
Bowl of Goldfish: One fish, Two fish, Red fish, Blue fish, GOLD FISH!
