A Boy’s Very Hungry Caterpillar 2nd Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

A boy’s Very Hungry Caterpillar 2nd Birthday Party ushered guests into a charming world filled with wonderful color.  The birthday boy’s favorite book, Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar, was brought to life for Aiden’s birthday celebration created by his talented mom, stylist Sara Sull, of August in Bloom.  The party guests were delighted to find a dessert table decorated with treat ideas that fit the theme perfectly. A gorgeous cake, cupcakes and bountiful party food promised delight. Jennifer Leigh Saunders of Kisses & Cake captured it all.

Since caterpillars are most at home in nature, the tabletop décor was reminiscent of the great outdoors. A pair of topiary trees beautifully framed the focal point cake. Wood slab platters, sheet moss and decorative moss balls added to the woodsy feel and made a great presentation for the party food.
