Library Themed Party

Is this thing on???? It's been a long time since I've been able to blog. Mostly because of this little guy and life. My life is filled to the brim and I love it. I recently received a comment on my blog that made me want to start this journey again. I may  not be able to  post many times, but I felt maybe someone out there may be looking for an idea for a Library themed party and I wanted to share Little B's.

This past December Little B turned three. He LOVES to read. I figured I would grow on that and have a library themed party for him. All the decor and food were based off of books.  First up the decor :

I picked plates w A, B, C's on them, a Humpty Dumpty plate, ABC letters, a banner with the word "READ" on it made out of a book. I also used some blocks we had and school look fabric for the food bar
He was very, very, excited !

Ordered off of Zazzle and loved how they looked like a vintage library card. I asked everyone to bring a book instead of a card, this way he would keep it forever

 I used a book from the dollar store to make the runners on each table, pain staking but worth it !

My hutch, I LOVED how it came out. I used old vintage books I had and a new one too.
 And now the food ! Each food item went along with a book. I borrowed some of the books from our local library and some we already had.

Little mouse and the cupcake : cupcakes/ Mini Moo and the mystery of the missing donuts : donuts /  If you give a mouse a cookie : cookies
I ordered these edible cupcake stickers from Etsy, they each have a book print on them

Stinky Cheese Man : assorted cheese and crackers


Secret Pizza Party : pizza rolls / Three Little Pigs : pigs in a blanket

Dragons love Tacos : taco salad / Green Eggs and Ham : Quiche Florentine

Strega Nona : pasta salad / Little Sweet Potato : potato salad


Monsters Don't Eat Broccoli : veggie platter

 The cake, well, I thought it would come out better than it did. But I tried ! I ordered a Wilton book cake pan and figured it would work. It came out a bit wonky, but I went with it. What else could I do !!!???  I made a banner from a book and printed "Chapter Three" on it. All in all, Little B loved the cake ! And so did everyone else, at least it tasted good !
My sad attempt on a cake that looks like a book.

 So that's a wrap. I may write more from time to time. I do have many things to share. Mostly based w little B. Sad but true, he has become my world for the most part =)
