A Very Hungry Caterpillar Party

For my boy's FIRST BIRTHDAY, I decided to throw him a Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party. This was such a fun theme to work with and are TONS of ideas online. I thought I'd add to the collection and maybe one day help someone plan their own Very Hungry Caterpillar party.
First off, the invites. I saw the idea here, at Pottery Barn and couldn't do anything else!
For the party, I served foods mentioned in the book and printed off labels found here
The balloons added a nice touch and were super easy.
I also had hanging a little month to month banner- this was very simple to make thanks to my Silhouette.
We read the book, colored and made fingerprint caterpillars
The cake/cupcakes were simple. I gave the red head to my son to smash!
A big thanks to my friend for reserving her clubhouse for us to use! 
 Such a fun party to plan. We had a great time celebrating my sweet BIG boy!


  1. SO super cute! Dying over the invites! My little guy's first b-day is next month :(

  2. That is the cutest thing ever Chels! You are so creative and such a fun mom! That must have taken a lot of work. Sam will be lucky to even get a cupcake...no party for either kid this year since we're in germany.

  3. Love this!
