A Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party!

Today, we celebrated a certain little girl's first year of life.  And what a beautiful life she has!

We tossed around party ideas for our littlest one for a while, but nothing seemed to fit better than The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  We love the book, and she loves to eat ;)

I searched and searched for the perfect banner, and I finally found this one at  Petite Party Studio on Etsy.  I love Etsy!

 I had a copy of the book, so I had her guests sign in on the pages.  I didn't have a chance to look at it right away, but when I was finally able to sit down and read through it, it brought tears to my eyes.  I am so glad I did this for her!

All of the food came from the book!  You'll notice here a chocolate cake, cherry pie, lollipops, cupcakes, apples, pears, plums, strawberries, and oranges...

a sausage, cheese... ice cream cone...

..and a pickle ;)

Nanny Shawn and I had quite a time making these party favors!  Late night at Nonnie's and two cartons ff salt later, we had play dough caterpillars!  I put a few balls in a mason jar and cut out a caterpillar face.  Voila!  Play dough caterpillar party favors!

Here's the birthday girl!

What would a birthday party be without cake??

We set up a craft table for the kids, too!  We used old egg cartons and finger paint and let them paint their very own caterpillars.

A very special thank you to all those who took the time to come celebrate our sweet little caboose's big day!  We love yall!
