{ grant's 1st birthday party! }

My little guy, Grant, has enjoyed the classic story, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, since he was a few months old.  He always giggles like crazy when I read the, "but he was still hungry!" part.  It seemed like a natural choice for the theme for his first birthday party. 

I went with this colorful invite, and it really got my creative juices flowing.


Calling all caterpillars to crawl inside to play!  It's time to celebrate Grant's 1st birthday!

P A R T Y   T I M E !


I tend to go a bit overboard with the sweets. Oops.
 I was obsessed with these adorable cut-out cookies. Trix cereal turned out to be a pretty dandy platter filler for these little lovelies.
I really liked the idea of a tall, simple white cake. Can you believe this is an $8 grocery store cake?!?   
I added Skittles around the top and bottom, plopped a fondant caterpillar on top, then added a cute little bunting. I love how it turned out.
It was almost too pretty to cut!
 I tried to add a few healthy choices too.  I sure didn't want any caterpillars to have a stomach ache ;)
What's a party without silly hats for friends?! 
A special hat for my tiny birthday boy.  I save all the hats that I make for my little men, and use them as decor in their bedrooms. 
We had a little table for the older kiddos to enjoy some caterpillar crafting.
These guys were really digging the glue.  Whoa, that's a LOT of glue.  Teehee. I'm sure their future preschool teachers are gonna have a lot of fun with this action :P
I asked the partygoers to write a special note to Grant in his birthday edition of the book. 
  Big brother, Jack, and his friends took some time out from playing to pose for a photo under the balloon caterpillar. He's a friendly sort of fellow that we named Curtis. 
 These sweet faces get me every time!
 Grant and his buddies are still getting the hang of this posing for pictures thing.  Dang, they are CUTE! Can you handle all those chubby cheeks?!? My super mommy friends are pretty talented at getting these little cherubs all lined up in a row for pics.
Unfortunately, our precious Georgia doesn't have the best party manners, so this is what she was doing for most of the festivities.  Seems she dumped out all of her food in protest too. You are loved, cute puppy.
Big friends went home with fun treat bags. Tucked inside was a caterpillar or butterfly wind-toy and a snack mix (with a few gummy caterpillars thrown in) for the ride home. 
I struggled with what to give the little munchkins.  It was hard to come up with something that was age appropriate. I came up with these fuzzy guys.  I cut lengths from feather boas and attached a giant red pom pom head.  I figured they'd be great for some sensory, tickle-filled fun.
Yikes, I have a feeling you've developed quite the sweet tooth already, little buddy.
Hmm.  I wonder where he's picked that up? We had such a blast at our party!
I can't believe my pumpkin is already a year old! Happy 1st birthday, sweet Grant!  Mama loves Y O U!
XOXOXO!

*I was sad to be without my awesome pro photographer for this party (unlike our last shindig), so I need to apologize for the general grainy, ickiness of most of these pics. I really need to get better at taking photos.

Seriously...my birthday in November 8 and you have to plan it :) This is the cutest party...just like the other one you planned. I love all of the creative decorations and the cake is amazing. Love those cookies too, with the holes. I can tell a lot of love was put into this party!

Danielle said...

Holy cow! This is impressive. You didn't leave out a single detail. You're hired (: I love the colors!

SherryQ said...

pinned! Gorgeously done, Rachel! xo

Brittany @GreyGreyDesigns said...

SOOOOO CUTE!!! I love it! And the Trix cereal? Brilliant.
Every little detail is just perfect!

Rachel said...

Thank you kindly, sweet gals!

Laura said...

I love this. You are amazing!

CJ said...

OMG I seriously can not believe he is one already! I remember you telling me you were pregnant! Time sure does fly. The party was simply adorable! Love the theme and all the goodies (I go overboard in the goodies department as well.) Where did you get the little luggage boxes? Too cute!

Rachel said...

Thanks, CJ! This year really has flown by. I bought those suitcases to use as decor in Grant's nursery originally. They turned out to be the perfect riser centerpiece for the cake! Picked those up at Tuesday Morning after Christmas :)

Mandy @ This Girl's Life said...

Super cute party! My friend Kent made his adorable shirt - she sent me your blog link. :) Now following!

A said...

Hopped over here from pinterest and I love everything you did with this theme! Very well done!

BellaM said...

I'm doing this theme for my son's 1st birthday too! I'm so excited for it!! Just wondering what font you used on your food tags, I'm not having much luck finding a match to the book etc.

TIA :)

Dedicated Docent said...

Hi, that was BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Mrs.G said...

Where did you find your invitation? I've been looking everywhere for one I like for my son's VHC party we're having in November and I like that one better than any other I've seen.

Rachel said...

Oh, thanks again for the party love, everyone. You guys are beyond sweet!

@ BellaM-- I used a font called HFF Light Petals. It's definitely not a match to the book, but I thought it had a fun look :) You can download it for free here:
http://www.fontspace.com/have-fun-with-fonts/hff-light-petals-2


@ Mrs. G. - I made the invite myself. Email me with the details of your party, as well as a high res photo (it would be helpful if the photo is around 2.75" wide by 4" high-the invite is 5X7 in size), and I'll gladly work up one for you- free of charge, of course ;)

Amy Beth said...

Can I ask how you made the food tags? My daughter's birthday is coming up and we're using The Very Hungry Caterpillar theme. Do you mind letting me know all the info or maybe sending me the format and such that you used? :) Thanks

Rachel said...

Hi Amy Beth! I made the tags myself. Email me @polkadotsandpuppies@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send you what I have.

Dionne said...

Seriously. Best Hungry Catepillar party I have seen, and I have seen a bunch lately! Found your through Pinterest and am beyond impressed with your creativity! I don't know what you do for a living, but you should seriously consider this. Bravo, bravo, bravo!

Rachel said...

Well, Dionne. You're about as sweet as candy, my dear! :) I'm totally blushing here. And, as for what I do for a living....I'm a mama to my little men. The partypalooza hijinks are just for FUN!

Jenni Price illustration said...

Wow I am totally LOVING your party decor and ideas! You are one talented gal!

I need to pick my jaw up off the floor...I'm so impressed with your skills!

Blessings,
Jenni (Art Pancakes)

SumerO. (AKA Reid's Mommy) said...

Rachel,
I was referred to your blog by a mutal friend (KENT BRANNON) after ordering my son's first bday t-shirt (the very hungry caterpillar). Oh my you did a fabulous job with Grant's bday party. I am myself trying to alot of the props, invites, tags, etc and am getting very frustrated bc things are not working out (alignment, etc). I am asking for your help. Did you use a specfic program to make these things or did you use MS Word? Any suggestions for me? Thank You, Sumer Oliver (AKA Reid's Mommy)

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

Sent you an email, Sumer :)

Melissa said...

AMAZING party! I'm doing the same theme in a couple weeks and have most of it done but just found a couple of great ideas. Thanks! Where did you find the party hats for the kids...still needing those.

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

*UPDATE* Just wanted to let everyone know that the food labels are now available for free download (at the bottom of the post here) Happy partying! :)

Valere said...

You did an amazing job! And I must THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! I am planning my one year old's VHC birthday party, and was really stressing over the food labels. I am so grateful you posted yours! Thank you! Again, fantastic job! You have some lucky guys in your life!

Stephanie said...

Everything in this post is adorable!! I'm going to be doing a VHC party in January for my daughter's first birthday and I'm using your party as the inspiration! Thanks for putting up the printable tags! Would you mind sharing where you found the graphics that you used for the invite? I really want to make one but I can't find them anywhere. Thanks!!

Lyndsayrader said...

I love everything you did! What kind of program did you use to make your treat bag tags, invite, etc? Thanks!

Mrs.G said...

I'll be emailing about the invite soon! Thank you so much! Also excited about the food labels!

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

Hi Lyndsayrader, I started with digital paper and used MSPaint for everything here. Thanks for your comment :)

Jennifer said...

WOW! This looks wonderful! I found you through Pintrest and am so glad I did! You did a wonderful job. I am planning our daughters 2nd bday (Nov.) in the VHC theme. Thank you so much for providing the food labels. I have already downloaded them and will be sure to comment back so you can see them in use! It has been a year in planning so I am ready for it to all come together! THANK YOU!! :)

The Bulthaup Family said...

I LOVE everything you did! So super creative! I can't wait to use many of your details for my daughter's second birthday Thank you so much for putting your hard work out there for free!! I have the same question as Stephanie - I have been looking EVERYWHERE for the Very Hungry Caterpillar images - searching with the terms clipart, images, graphics, digital scrapbooking, and have had absolutely no luck. I know it's out there somewhere. Does anyone know where to find it? I am willing to pay for it if I can just locate it!!!

Thank you!

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

Thank you for your sweet words, The Bulthaup Family :) I've finally uploaded a zip file with the digital images that I used. I've yet to update the blog post here, but you can download them (for FREE, of course!) here>>>

Mama Relle said...

Hi! I would love it if you would be willing to assist me with the invites for my son't birthday which is WAY SOONER THAN I AM READY FOR AT THIS BUSY TIME-NOV. 5TH....EEK! I found an invitation for a VHC party that had the wording "Crawl on over for some fun! Noah is turning one". The one was written really big. But I love the look of yours. Anyway you would be willing to make some changes? If you aren't taking money for helping us fellow bloggers out, will you take a Sonic or Starbucks gift card so your next drink is on me? Let me know-JennRelle@gmail.com www.relleclan.blogspot.com Thanks!

Elizabeth Grattan said...

Thank you so very much for the sharing your food labels and other items! I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate it! I am planning my daughter's first birthday party for November 19, and am quickly running out of time. Finding this has made me so excited and full of ideas!

Lesley said...

LOVE this whole thing and plan to attempt to recreate most of it in some way for my lil ones bday in December. Where did you get those ice cream cone treats? they look like marshmallows...
I was just thinking last night about adding each type of food that is in the book to a big munchie table, but wasn't sure how to add ice cream because of it melting! Help! Thanks!!!

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

Elizabeth- So happy that I could help, and that you're excited for your party :)

Leslie- Thank you! I *believe* I bought those candies at Michael's. I found a few online sources for similar items:

OOOOO... I love the first ones! Thanks a ton!!!

Stephanie said...

Wow,you did such a wonderful job!! I am planning my little girls first birthday with this theme. It is in December and I can't wait! I am working on the food labels right now and stumbled across your site. I am getting so many great ideas from you, thank you!! I am wondering if you would mind sending me the file to your labels? I would like to use a different color for the font, as well as add a few foods but can't figure out how to edit it the file as I downloaded it from you. Thank you for sharing all your hard work, you're amazing! :)

Stephanie said...

Hi Rachel, it's Stephanie again I was also wondering if you could send me the thank you circles file. If you don't wish to, i totally understand! But if you are willing to, my email is sngamm@hotmail.com. What program did you use to create your labels? Thank you so much!

Christina said...

YOU ARE AMAZING RACHEL!!
I am also a mommy working on this theme for my little girls first birthday, with a GLAM twist!
I am wondering if your zip file is a printable file? Thank you so much for sharing and being so generous with all of your hard work!

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

Thanks, Christina. You should be able to download the zip file here:
http://www.4shared.com/file/Ycpu0cdH/VHC_digital_pa
pers.html

Then you should be able to print the files after "unzipping" or extracting the files from the folder. Let me know if you have any problems with that. You can email me @ polkadotsandpuppies@gmail.com, and I can send them directly to you :)

Christina said...

Thanks Rachel, you're a doll!
(& I'm not as computer literate as I'd like to be!)
Happy Holidays to you & those adorable boys!
Oh, the cute puppies & hubby too!

babybunny2011 said...

I am loving all of your creativity!! We are planning out sweet caterpillars party next month. I was wondering if I could get your template or you could possibly make the invitations, I would be willing to pay of course! And possibly the circle labels. Where did you find the treat bags? Thank you for sharing your blog!! Aprilachueca@gmail.com

Our Blessed Life said...

HI!!! First off, this party was AMAZING!!!!! SO SO cute and gave me some great ideas for my son's birthday coming up in two weeks!!!

Also, I was wondering how you made the "happy birthday" banner? Did you free hand it, or have a pattern??? Thanks! :)

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

Thanks, Our Blessed Life :) For the banner, I just printed out letters within circles in a large size. Again, I used the HFF Light Petals font (found here: http://www.fontspace.com/have-fun-with-fonts/hff-light-petals-2 ), and then I glued them onto scrapbook paper that I cut into a pennant shape. I hope that helps :)

Stefanie Blakely said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for uploading all of the digital elements! I'm pretty good with Photoshop and am making my own invites, cupcake toppers, food labels, etc & it was AWESOME to find all of this in one place. Your party was absolutely perfect and I can't wait to check out more of your blog!

Alyssa Higgins said...

I just wanted to thank you for all your ideas! You are super talented! I found your blog through a pin on pinterest and your downloads and site have been a HUGE help in my planning my sons first birthday! Your party is by far the best I have seen! Thanks for sharing!! Can I ask, how did you attach the giant pom poms to the lengths of boa?? :)

MamaJana said...

WOW Rachel! I am so impressed by what you accomplished. And, I really appreciate you sharing everything to inspire the rest of us!

I'm sending you an email and hope you can help me with the invitation.

Jenny said...

Rachel ~ This is the cutest party EVER! I'm planning a Very Hungry Caterpillar party for my son's first birthday in April and I am loving all of the resource links you provided. I'm definitely getting the cupcake toppers and maybe the cookies! What main dishes did you serve to your guests or was it just more finger food? I'm stumped outside of pizza and sausage (in keeping with the caterpillar's diet):-)

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

Hi Jenny! Yes, it was oodles of finger foods. I did cheeses, hummus, veggies and dips and such. Our party was at 10am (our kiddos still nap!), so it worked for us. I think pizza sounds like a great plan if you need to serve something more substantial.

karinah said...

Hi - Grant's party was so cute. Thank you for showing us how you did it. I am trying to use the files you put on your blog, but the the nonpdf ones don't seem to be changeable. I wanted to use the small caterpillar for tags but the gray background makes it so I can't. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Thanks for any help!

karinah said...

Hi - the party looked great! I am trying to add words to some of the files you so graco=iously uploaded for us, but they are non pdf for the most part and I can't seem to get the gray part out of the background. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Is there a way to get pdf's of the pictures, not just the backgrounds? Thank you so much - I know we all appreciate your kindness to share with us.

Gwyn said...

Rachel, love what you gave done with the party, Great Work! I downloaded the clipart and made a printable for preschoolers, would you like a set? This is my e-mail address gsheets2@gmail.com send me an e-mail and I will send you a set to do with your little one. My blog is http://owensfamily-gwyn.blogspot.com/ if you want to take a look. Thanks for sharing. Take care, Gwyn

i love everything you did for this birthday party, and i'd love to borrow some of your designs. the PDFs of the food labels won't open for me. can you email those and any other files that you don't mind sharing? i'm also interested in the invitations and wondered if you could email a template or the graphics. thanks for posting all your creativity and being willing to share with your readers!

Lisa said...

Hi, Rachel -

I think that is the cutest birthday party I've ever seen! I am planning my daughter's first bday party and am using a lot of your ideas. I wanted to ask you were you found the little circle lables for the party hats? Did you make those or did you download them from somewhere? Thanks in advance...

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

Hi Lisa! I made those. If you email me at polkadotsandpuppies@gmail.com with your daughter's name, I can make you some too. ;)

Rachel, I LOVE everything you did for the VHC party! I, too, am planning an Eric Carle themed first birthday for my little guy and am wondering how you got all the graphics to make all the prinouts?

Any chance you can tell me how you created the signs for the craft (make your own caterpillar) and keepsake book signature signs? Also, where you got the cutouts for the craft? Thanks!

Rachel {polkadots and puppies} said...

Hi Christin, please email me at polkadotsandpuppies@gmail.com. I'll be happy to answer all of your questions via email :)

Suzanne said...

So cute! I'm sure you've answered every question there is about your party! :) but where did you get the thank tags on the give away bags? I'm having the worst time finding this and may try and recreate myself. Having this same theme for my son's 1st birthday in April!

Thanks!
Suzanne

Suzanne said...

you did a great job on this party! I'm doing the same theme in a month for my son's 1st bday. Where did you get the tags for the favor bags? I'm having the worst time finding cute ones!

Thanks

Hi there, Suzanne. Thank you for your sweet words. ;) I made the favor tags myself. Please email me at polkadotsandpuppies@gmail.com, and I may be able to help with yours.

beebop said...

OMG! I love and owe you my life. I am so excited about my son's first birthday coming up! I would love to make this party happen. Thank you so much for the downloadable food labels from Grant's birthday. I've already started to order the same shirt...too cute. I love your etsy connection. I was wondering if you could help me figure out how you made your invitation, and where you got your goodie bags and tags. These are my only missing links. I think it is funny that you celebrated Grant's birthday on the same day as my son's birthday on April 16th. Thanks again and any help you can give would be great!

Jane said...

Hello Rachel. I am coming to you from Melbourne, Australia and think you have done the most amazing VHC birthday party I have seen! I have spent the last few weeks searching local stores for invites, tags and caterpillars to little luck. Thank you so much for providing us with the tags - it is so thoughtful and generous of you. I was hoping to get some help with the invitations too, if that is ok? My son is about to turn 1 and I just think this is the most adorable concept and one which has not been done much in OZ yet. Thank you so much for your help. Jane x

I stumbled across your website when I was searching for caterpillar cake ideas and was totally blown away! I've been trying to create an invite and matching tags for my own son but my graphic skills aren't as good as my baking skills and seem to be having alot of trouble! I was wondering if I could trouble you for your templates. It would be much appreciated. Naomi

I love your party. It has to be the best hungry caterpillar party I have found. I love the cookies but I don't know how I can order them. The site it directs me to has no order information or e-mail to contact who makes them. Please help me find out how to order cookies like yours. It would make my daughter's 1st birthday perfect.

How did you create the cute strawberry for the front door? Such a cute idea!

Hi! I think your party is so cute. My son is turning one and we are using the hungry caterpillar theme. I see you got the wrapping paper from Target. Have you seen the paper recently? I have looked all over for it! Also, how did you get the framed sheet as the sign in table? Thanks so much!

Melanie said...

Like everyone else said, you did an amazing job on this party! I pinned your blog awhile back and now am starting to plan my son's first birthday. I was curious if you could share how to create the circular tags... they look perfect for what I'd like to do but I haven't a clue how to make them. Since you asked everyone else to email you, I also did that :) Thanks in advance!

Krista Anello said...

I have been planned this theme for my son's first birthday! I just stumbled arcoss your blog. I have been looking for the cookies for a while. Where did you get them? Please email me! Thanks and your party looked amazing!

Hi Rachel,

Firstly, you are amazing!! I am loving all your ideas for your son's party. I'm currently planning my son's 1st birthday party too and am doing a VHC theme...of course!!

I was just wondering where you found the polka dot paper that is behind the cute circle cut outs on the hats. I am hoping to make my own cut outs but love the circles from the book.

Thank you!!

Hi Rachel,

I've done quite some research and felt overwhelmed with the amount of details that have to be prepared for a nice party like this. Other blogs didn't provide much info in terms of where to get the materials. Thank you so much for sharing and providing guidance! Now I feel much better in my ability to execute the planning for my daughter's 1st party. You are a life saver! If it's not too much to ask, I would really appreciate if you can share with me the other printables. My email address is nnkv1512@yahoo.com

Thank you!!!!!!

If Grant looks back and see the pictures and the effort you've put into this, I bet my bottom dollar, he's gonna love you more that he already does. I myself is under a lot of pressure in deciding for my son's first birthday invitations. Wish me luck!

Hi there!
Fabulous party! I am in the process of planning the same theme for my son's first birthday come March. I am having trouble downloading the food labels you have so graciously made available for public use.

Is there ANY way you could send these to me? If at all possible I would love to have them blank so that I could fill in the food we will be making. My e-mail is Smorscheck@att.net

Thank you so much! I will be so grateful!

Warmly,
Shannon

It becomes the moral duty of parents to induce the sense of responsibility, as they would expect them to become a significant part of society when he turns nineteen, because he would soon be entering into adulthood. Secondly, they need to apply the wonderfully amazing
19th birthday party ideas to celebrate the special occasion with simplicity.

My daughter is turning 8 and was dying for a VHC party I was so nervous that I won't find anything. Thank you so much for everything on here and your willingness to share :)

FRANKLINE JENIFER said...

My name is Frankline Jenifer, from USA I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa in February this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is DR HERCULES he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 6years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to usa, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is GREATHERCULESSPELLTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM

Miss Joyce said...

Life can be very miserable especially when we lose the ones we love and cherish so much. In this kind of situation where one loses his/her soul mate there are several dangers engage in it. One may no longer be able to do the things he was doing before then success will be very scarce and happiness will be rare. That person was created to be with you for without him things may fall apart.That was my experience late last year, but thank God today i am happy with him again. all thanks to Dr Ekpiku, i was nearly loosing hope until i saw an article on how Dr Ekpiku casted a love spell to make lovers come back. There is no harm in trying, i said to myself. I contacted him via email: Ekpikuspelltemple@live.com. Words will not be enough to appreciate what he has done for me. i have promised to share the good news as long as i live

Doreen said...

i am very happy today for what God used doctor Zaza a great spell caster to do in my life. i had misunderstanding with my husband in the past and so it led to us breaking up for 3 years but one day i saw a post of Mrs Rebeca who posted on the internet that Doctor Zaza a great spell caster helped her with a spell that brought her Husband back so i decided to contact Doctor Zaza the great Spell caster to help me and he assured me that my Husband will come back to me, luckily today i am very glade to write on this wall that Nick my husband has come back to me as the great spell caster Doctor Zaza said. Do you have a problem with you Husband, boy friend, girl friend, relations or in your office and you think you have lost them? worry no more because Doctor Zaza the great spell caster can help you just as he helped me bring my Husband back okay. contact Doctor Zaza today via email: indiaspellcaster@hotmail.com

Am hayes

With so much in my heart i am here to express myself on how Dr.kuvuki saved my marriage from breaking up.

I have searched the whole internet for the past week looking for Hungry caterpillar labels, and then I came across your blog! You are truly an inspiration. My little boy's 1 yr is next week and you have made my day!.. Question: re the labels. I wanted to have some blank so I can put each child's name in it and place It on their favour bag. Any tips on how to delete the contents of the label template?
