It is unbelievable how time flies by. Today, with family and friends, we celebrated my little man’s 3rd birthday. Tuggy absolutely loves Dr. Seuss, and so do I, so I had fun putting together his party this year.
This year, a graphic designer friend of mine was kind enough to make my invitation for Tuggy’s party. I was really happy with the way they turned out.
We had the party at Willow Park in Anaheim. The weather was nice so grilled Tuggy’s favorite — cheeseburgers. Great for us, because its so simple. 🙂
The marble cake was a simple cat in the hat design, made by Laura, with oreo cookie and strawberry filling. It was amazing!
The cupcakes were also made by Laura. The cupcake toppers actually came from 3D book stickers that I found at Michael’s. Laura was able to laminate them and prop them up with toothpicks. They came out exactly as I envisioned… so perfect!
I had seen an idea to use a frame and other fun props on different blogs online, so… we decided to implement something like that this year. The pictures came out adorable.
To keep in line with the Dr. Seuss theme, I made these mustache pops using yellow candy melts. I was very happy with the way they came out.
For the goodie bags this year, I bought a pack of cat in the hat hats at CM School Supply in Fullerton and glued them on red gift bags. They were filled with pencils, erasers, bookmarks and other neat things from that store as well.
Lots of memories and growing up to celebrate, I couldn’t be prouder of my little man. Happy 3rd Birthday Pumpkin ….Love, Mommy!
