On March 2 we had a birthday party in honor of Dr. Suess and went to see the new Lorax movie since it opened that night. So I themed our party around The Lorax which is also one of my favorite books growing up!
I made these for our little guests to each take one home for a favor. So simple, pipe cleaner wrapped with black ribbon and pom poms (found at Hobby Lobby as well as the flower plates below) glued on top. Print off the text and done! My version of Truffula Trees! They’re actually my dead basil plants that I hadn’t thrown out yet…first time I’m glad I can’t keep any plants alive! Spray painted them white, used a magic marker to draw the black lines on, glued on pompoms and shoved fake grass in the bottom. Truffula Tree Seeds (chocolate covered sunflower seeds) Humming-fish (They have singing gold fish in the movie) Truffula Fruit Truffula Berry Cakes (The Lorax LOVES Truffula Berry Pancakes so I was going to make pancakes and have a blueberry reduction syrup to top them but then I thought…hmmm, kids, blueberry syrup, my carpet. PASS!! So I made blueberry muffins instead.) Brown Bar-Ba-Loot Snacks (The Bar-ba-loots are these adorable little brown bears and the adore marshmellows) And you can’t have a Lorax party without The Lorax himself!!It was super fun and I had a great time planning it all. Plus the movie was so so cute and all the kids loved it!
