A Boy’s Cat in the Hat Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

Planned for her son who loves Dr. Seuss, this Cat in the Hat birthday party was styled and photographed by Minnie, of Minnie’s Sweet Creations. Did you ever think you’d see a sophisticated Cat in the Hat?  I love Minnie’s fresh ideas on the theme! Styled in all black and white, except for one accent in red (can you find it?), it will knock your socks off! The cake, decorations and details really wow!

Taking inspiration from a simple coloring book, Minnie decided to forego the traditional red and blue color scheme, opting for a modern black and white color palette instead. The design comes to life with a curtain backdrop made by Marie of Butterfly Creations Invitations by Marie.

The dessert table was the birthday boy’s favorite party element and you can see why! An impressive 3-tiered cake, with hand painted details and an amazing “Think and wonder, wonder and think” topper by Rochelle of À la Roch, is the obvious focal point. It looks impressive setting on top of a black stand from Events By Nat. Coordinating cupcakes, with incredible Cat in the Hat characters, flank each side of the cake.

Guests were also given customized thank-you chocolate bar favors.  I love the printable wrappers by Agnes of Edge House Design – Designer Custom Made Party Stationery: “Today is good.  Today is fun.  Thank you, thank you everyone!”  Isn’t that an adorable way to thank guests for joining in the celebration?

He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots.
