Celebrating the school year in style is just what kindergarten teacher Angelique did  Inspired by Eric Carle’s popular book, Angelique’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar party was a fabulous theme choice for an end-of-year graduation party.

We happen to think this theme works great as a birthday or back-to-school party theme too! I adore the colorful decorations and darling color-coordinating dessert table refreshments. Sit back and join us as we travel through the school party photos captured by Angelique. (You may remember her pirate party we also featured!)

Taking color inspiration from the pages of the book, a bright refreshment table was set up in all the colors of the rainbow. A lime green tablecloth was topped with a cheerful yellow runner.

Faux grass mats laid a creative foundation for displaying all sorts of healthy options for snacking:  cheese, strawberries, orange slices and watermelon (we’re pretty sure the very hungry caterpillar would like these snacks too!).

Angelique incorporated darling printable decorations into her styling.

The front of her table was accented with a colorful banner featuring so many fun digital patterns from a digital kit by Melanie Ralbusky, and leaves and caterpillars from an Etsy kit inspired by the beloved book.

Angelique also served cupcakes, baked right into ice cream cones.

Don’t you just love the creativity of the red candy on top to look like a cherry? These creative cupcakes were served on bright polka-dotted rounds, with perfect slots for neatly holding the cones.

A tiered stand served as the table’s centerpiece with edible chocolate roll diplomas tied up in festive yellow ribbon.

To keep her school party budget-friendly, Angelique found coordinating partyware such as plates, napkins, plastic table coverings and lollipops at a local dollar store.

To add interest to the party display, a colorful banner was suspended above the dessert table. Festive paper fans and tissue paper poms were clustered on each side.
