Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss!

There’s no finer thing than spending time with my grandchildren, unless maybe it’s spending time with them having a tea party. This month we celebrated the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel – aka Dr Seuss – born March 2, 1904.

Dr Seuss holds a special place in our hearts. Our own children grew up listening to us read his books and now our grandchildren do the same. Two years ago we took our oldest granddaughter on a Carnival cruise that featured Seuss at Sea. What a blast! We wore Thing 1 and 2 wigs and t-shirts, ate Seuss themed foods, and participated in a Seussapalooza parade.

So this year, for the good doctor’s birthday, we had a Seuss tea party. I did up a crocheted hat and sweater for our dolls (Emily is pictured above) with vivid Seussian style colors, made colorful foods, and we read Cat in the Hat as part of our celebration.

 

 

Here are some of the links I used to prepare for the tea party:

Emily’s Outfit (available on Etsy) – this is my original pattern. The outfit is available and, once I’ve sent it to some testers to try, I’ll post the pattern as well.
