A Very Hungry Caterpillar Party

A Very Hungry Caterpillar offers you a timeless, classic theme that your child would most certainly love.  This theme allows you to use a huge array of vibrant colors to bring your venue to life.

There are many decorative options available that can make your event a smash.  Using hanging lanterns, you can hang a row of green and yellow ones, add a face and pipe cleaner antennae to a red one, and you would have your caterpillar hanging over the group.  You can use colored paper plates hung on the wall to look like the caterpillar as well, spelling out the birthday child’s name for a personal touch.  Balloons filled with helium in all kinds of bright colors can fill the room with a blast of fun for everyone. Using polka dot clothes for the tables adds to the multitude of colors that makes this theme pop.
