A Dr Seuss theme party is not just limited to children's birthday celebrations. Be creative – think baby showers, graduation parties (Oh, the Places You'll Go), Halloween (Green Eggs and Ham) and Christmas parties (How the Grinch Stole Christmas) , and elementary school fundraisers and teacher appreciation days. We love Dr. Seuss and concoct any excuse to create a party theme using works as inspiration.
Who is Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss)?
Theodor Seuss Geisel, best known to the world as Dr. Seuss, was born on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts. During his distinguished career Geisel wrote and illustrated 44 children's books, including such all-time favorites as The Cat in the Hat, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Green Eggs and Ham, Oh, the Places You'll Go, Fox in Socks, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Dr. Seuss books have been translated into more than 15 languages with over 200 million copies finding their way into homes and hearts around the world. In addition to the books, Geisel's works have inspired a Broadway musical, and innumerable children's television specials and films , with the latest Seuss motion picture, The Lorax Movie, released on March 2, 2012. Other honors include two Academy awards, two Emmy awards, a Peabody award and the Pulitzer Prize. Read More Continue Reading →

And while I am at it, I want to congratulate two of my nieces who are graduating this spring, Katie and Sami. Two more graduates who I am certain will make their mark in the world!
