I am always crazy over parties that use a book theme- and I adore The Very Hungry Caterpillar!  Kelly Lyden, of The WH Hostess and The Party Dress, put-together a spectacular party centered around this book and it is full of fabulous ideas that you can re-create for your own party!  This theme is perfect for a birthday, a back-to-school party, or even a playdate!  Use the ideas that you love to celebrate someone special...I must admit, I love them ALL!

 The cake is such a stunning part of the details- and I love the simplicity of the fondant caterpillar with the ball fringe on lollipop sticks!  An adorable touch!

The sides of the cake are so detailed and so cute coupled with a trendy chevron stripe...

All of the treats for this party really play off of the artwork by Eric Carle and bring the book to life in sugar-form!

The apple cupcakes!  They look so beautiful and delicious- I love how these would also be perfect for a teacher gift ;)

Mixing in candies in the party colors always adds a perfect touch to the treat table!

Another of my favorite parts of this party is Kelly's clever ways of creating caterpillars...she used paper lanterns to make the most adorable centerpieces!

Kelly decorated the chairbacks, too! Each child's name was on his/her chair...

I'd say Britton's 3rd birthday was quite a hit!

What a fabulous party, Kelly!  Thank you for sharing your ideas with us.  I love your graphic designs and your design style!

The most cutest thing about this party is caterpillar fondant on the birthday cake. I love the printables! The theme really carries throughout – great job!
