A very hungry caterpillar party

One of my best friends has this son, that just turned one. I was so excited she wanted my help to plan a party. Being a teacher I thought of all sorts of book themes. She liked the Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle best so my creativity went wild! It was such a fun party.
We had some inspiration from Pink Pistachio but she doesn't share her labels so I designed them by scanning pictures from the book. I don't know how to file share but if you're interested i could e-mail them to you.
First the food. I "designed" the labels and my friend made all the food.
Here are the cupcake toppers and "On Saturday" label

For his own cake I designed this banner

As you can see the food was amazing and super tastey. It was so cute to serve what the caterpillar "ate"

For decorations we did a catterpillar banner

And timeline of all the months of his first year
We read the story to the kids with a story telling kit, and the kids played pin the head on the caterpillar and colored pictures of the caterpillar.

 We made butterfly take home favors. full of candy. It was a great party and I loved helping plan it!
