Seussmania part II: the feast

Thanks to those who took the time to try out my little quiz. I can finally put that endeavor to rest and get on to reporting more exciting pieces of business, like Halloween, Ellie's first ballet recital, and of course the rest of the Dr. Seuss extravaganza. This post features the menu-- yes, I went a little overboard. In retrospect, I would definitely make less than half of what I did ("I" including my loyal friend and family minions), since again I think most people (all of the kids, for sure) failed to recognize that each dish was calculated for the effect of the theme. Oh well.

Actually, I had a blast reading every Dr. Seuss book I could get my paws on and marking each reference to something edible, and then recreating each dish. I hanged (or is it hung? I can't decide) photocopies of my inspiration above the food table. The house favorites were the hot dogs (they were Hillshire Farm hotdogs, after all) and ABC cookies (props to Aunt C for the cookie cutters).

You went all out, Tiff! Such a cute party! Wish I could have been there. You are one of the most creative people I know!

Woah! That's crazy T! Don't feel like you need to do the same for my shower...:)

Cristi said...

Is there anyone in the world more creative than you? I'm not sure, actually. You are AMAZING!

OK, a little overboard, but only if it was for 4-yr-olds and not for all your admiring friends...then it's just right. My favorite were the Thing 1&2 cupcakes.

Oh my goodness! You're amazingly ridiculous...or maybe it's ridiculously amazing. Seriously, I can't believe you came up with all that!
Um... when's Mary's shower and how come I wasn't invited!
(I'm crying inside.)

Holy cow, T! You really went all out! I am super impressed. That is the cutest party idea! You are uber creative!

You are amazing! I can't believe you went to SO much effort on the food. I probably would have done one or two things and called it a day. Ellie will look at these photos and appreciate all of your effort someday . . . I'd say in about twenty years or so :-). I love how you are so creative.

You are all too kind, really. As much as I'd love to take all the credit, I had a lot of help from Kjerstin and Mish, and I stole the cupcake idea from another blog. It was actually the reason I decided to do this theme!
