Decorations

Pick all or some of our Dr Seuss birthday party ideas for decorations.

If the main theme is Cat-in-the-Hat, then the theme colours are red, white, blue, and yellow. Hang lots of balloons and streamers in the theme colours. Fill the party area with paper cut-out circles in various sizes: red, yellow and blue, hang them on the walls.

Make a giant hat out of poster board and fabric and hang it on the front door. Find play umbrellas, (the kid sized ones), and hang them open from the ceiling.

If your theme is purely Dr Seuss, decorate the background with some of your daughters favourite Dr.Suess's characters. Draw on a piece of cardboard - made by using an overhead projector to draw them very large, copy a picture out of a book onto an overhead transparency, (and then use the pictures as background images).

Use a red table cover and white, blue and yellow plates, cups, etc. Decorate the table with paper cut-out circles in various sizes: red, yellow and blue. Have a Cat in the Hat Piñata for centrepiece.
