Cat in the hat party

Inspired by the comical children’s book, Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss, this fun party theme is ideal for boys or girls. Add more feminine touches for a girl’s party by adding a little more pink and purple detail, as the blue, red and white tends to be more masculine.

You can ask guests to come dressed up or provide bowties and hats or colour the children’s hair with hair spray.

Main_table

 

This piñata doubles as the centrepiece, and is classic Cat in the Hat style. The hats on each place setting also have secret hollow centres to fill with goodies for each child. If you have time, you can make them yourself or buy them from Piñata’s Galore.

Snowglobe_table_decor

 

Personalised snow globes, available at Clicks stores, make perfect party décor and take-home gifts. Insert colour-copied images.

cupcakes

 

Blue candy floss atop vanilla cupcakes replicates Thing 1 and Thing 2’s crazy hairdos, and the kids will love it. Get the recipe here.

Food_cake

 

Two round cakes make this hat cake, and the red, blue and white roll-out icing provides the detail. Or you can bake a one-layer round cake and have a picture from the book printed on rice paper to lay on top.

Juice_boxes

 

An easy idea is to have theme appropriate images printed, and then simply stick them to shop-bought items – in this case, UHT drinking milk and fruit-flavoured yoghurt tubs.

Food_popcorn

 

Popcorn is always a hit with kids.

Food_Coconut_ice

 

Coconut ice made red and white instead of the traditional pink and white brings through the colours in the cat’s hat.

Biscuits

 

Small details like these hat and alphabet biscuits complement the theme perfectly. Get the recipe here.
