A Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday

I threw my daughter a "Very Hungry Caterpillar" themed birthday party a few years ago and posted the photos on my personal blog. Since then I've had my personal blog changed to private so you can't just hop on over and look at it. Sorry. But don't fret, I'm posting it all over again right now.

We based the party theme off of the classic children's book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle. It was one of my daughters favorites. Probably because it is one of our favorites, and we read it to her the most out of any other book. 

We ate everything that the caterpillar ate: apples, oranges, plums, pears, strawberries, chocolate cake {that big one from costco- mmmmm} ice cream cones, pickles, swiss cheese, salami {I even found Pepperidge butterfly crackers}, lollipops, cherry pie {tarts}, sausage {hot dogs}, cupcakes, and watermelon. Along with rice and teriyaki chicken. Oh and one nice green leaf {salad}, just like he ate on Sunday...
... Activities we did: Read the book, played catch the butterflies (that elephant game), pin the caterpillar on the apple, and broke a butterfly pinata.
