The Very Hungry Caterpillar – First birthday parties are always exciting to plan! There are so many adorable themes and the Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of the cutest. In case you don’t have little ones (and haven’t read the story hundreds of times) it’s about a caterpillar who eats his way through a delicious assortment of fruits and snacks. The hungry little caterpillar munches through one apple, two pears, three plums and so on…… so the story is excellent for teaching basic counting. The dessert bar was filled with colorful candies and fruits to tie into the story. I created labels featuring the cute little caterpillar for the fruit, and used a gorgeous tiered cake as the centerpiece.

Hungry Caterpillar Cake
Isn’t this two tiered birthday cake super cute? I love the little caterpillar inching his way across the top. We designed the big first birthday banner to go above the party dessert table. And I created all these cute Hungry Caterpillar printable party signs for the activity tables.
We set up this cake table and added cute food table labels to all the party food. And the water bottle labels turned out adorable.

First Birthday Party Ideas
Since it was a first birthday party most of our party guests were preschool age. I set up activity tables to keep the kiddos entertained and give them a chance to create their own Hungry Caterpillar art. A box of fuzz balls, google eyeballs and popsicle sticks. Coloring pages and a cute apple bracelet activity.
