Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party Invitations

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Most of us can remember the childhood book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric CarleĀ and being a parent reading it to your own child just brings back those fond memories of your own youth. Parent or not though, I think pretty much anyone can appreciate the sweetness of this colorfully creative party we found at Kara’s Party Ideas. Creating the invitation was a “hole” lot of fun too….(pun intended!) What a terrific excuse to incorporate fruit on the dessert table, as opposed to all of the other sweet foods mentioned in the book. This party was absolutely amazing as they not only incorporated so many of the sweet desserts, but they also recreated the story using the food and book-inspired tags that narrated each day of the week according to the book.

The great thing about this party is that it works for many different age groups and can actually be created on a tight budget with a lot of do it yourself ideas. Colorful fruit could be used for the table display with DIY food labels that could easily be made by scanning the characters directly from the book. (Of course, we can’t do that with the invitations based on strict copyright issues.)
