How about this fabulous Dr. Seuss cake created by Amanda Grooms?
So many wonderful elements from Dr. Seuss books that she incorporated, including a real fish bowl.
Deborah handmade this sign with a Dr. Seuss quote from Horton Hatches the Egg.
Deborah also handmade this colorful Dr. Seuss quilt (for another grand baby) using fabric by Robert Kaufman. Notice the detailed curved stitching including sewing the baby’s name into the quilt.
Dr. Seuss style gifts:
Baby clothes, fleece tied quilt, Six by Seuss book and more of the handmade quilt by grandma Deborah. I also love the idea of making a pillow case to store the quilt in.
Dr. Seuss Party Food ideas:
A popular food choice is deviled Green Eggs and Ham sandwiches.

My favorite decorations are the Truffula trees she made with fluffy feathers (hair bows from Hobby Lobby) and long bamboo sticks and plants. She added stripes to the sticks and plants.
The handmade Dr. Seuss sign post is in place by the food at the party. The utensil table is set with a striped table cloth and the kitchen window is surrounded by Dr. Seuss cut out classroom wall décor you can find from teacher supply stores.
Dr. Seuss Table Decorations: She made signs for the food, and book covers in frames for the guest tables. Center pieces were the truffula trees and fish in a dish along with fun polka-dots scattered around.
Storytime Spot for kids: She had a reader that sat in the chair with a cat hat on and read Dr. Seuss stories to the kids at the shower!
Photo Booth Wall: Gather all your Dr. Seuss plush animals, several books and decorate a mantle. Then have decorated frames, a few cat hats, some boas and a silly sign for guests to hold for photo opportunities.
They filled a jar with Grinch Hearts (candy hearts) and let the guests guess how many were inside. Whoever was closest got to take the jar home as a prize. The answer: 120- won by a little girl named Audrey!
DIY MAGNET FAVORS: They also made all these magnets from Dr. Seuss stickers as a party favor for guests to take home.
I wish Deborah and her family a life full of joy, especially with the new arrival of her granddaughter. Thank you for sharing your party with us.
Some of these ideas were inspired by other parties Deborah has seen on the web. She pulled all this together along with her own creativity to create this party. It turned out amazing! I hope this gives you some good ideas if you want to host a Dr. Seuss themed party.
