Not feeling inspired about your kid's upcoming party? Look no further than their bookcase for ideas. Corey picked a beloved classic: I started thinking about Brooklyn's 2nd birthday party, the day after his first! The theme was The Very Hungry Caterpillar, inspired by Eric Carle's classic book.

I handmade all of the featured pieces, including Brooklyn's birthday invitations, birthday crown, the goodie bags, treats etc. I ordered the coordinating paper goods from an overseas company. I served all of the foods mentioned in the book. We played three games: a bean bag toss, a hunt for hidden caterpillars throughout the yard and a game to see which team of children could create the best cocoon by wrapping a volunteer child in toilet paper, within a two minute time. This party was a joy from beginning to end!

Thanks, Corey!

We love a good party! If you'd like to share the good ideas and photos from your child's celebration with the Ohdeedoh community please submit through the My Party form found here.
