Dr. Seuss Party Recap #3 – Decorations Part 1

Today I will talk about what the guests saw as they pulled/walked up to the house as well as the wall decorations inside from right to including the mantle. Then save the rest for another day.

***Remember... most of these decorations we made, the only ones we didn't make were the ones with the Cat in the Hat because you could buy 5 foot tall Cat in the Hat boards. To learn how we made them look at this post from last year's party decorations. If you have ANY questions, let me know. Thanks!***

If you parked on the side street and walked towards the party this is what you would see coming down the fence (you would also have seen the bounce house, but it wasn’t inflated when I took the picture)…

Then when you walked around to the front of our house they saw this…

Here is a close up of the porch…

What they saw when walking up to the door…


Inside the house from right to left we have…

Cat’s Closet (Jake’s Study):

First wall with a cute saying:

Windows to the left of said wall:
Now this was adorable because at the bottom we had the boy and girl peaking out of the window like in the book (we later on decided we should have done their faces too, but it was too little too late):


Right above them in the middle of the window we had the fish:

Then his saying above him:

Then on the other side of the ½ wall we had the boy and girl again with the Dr. Seuss Clock and a saying that said Happy Birthday Laci (you can also see the pillow we talked about yesterday):

Then the TV (During the party we had some of The Cat in the Hat shows playing):

Mantle/Fireplace Decorations – To make the wreath we started with a plain wooden wreath and wrapped around the feather boas, then stuck The Cat in the Hat in the middle. Then I made the banner that went across the bottom and just had books and decorations on the mantle:

That wraps up the decorations for today… There is a lot of stuff in there, so if you have questions or want to know where I got something let me know. For the stuff that has already been posted see the TOC below for links.

  1. It was crazy how awesome it was! I seriously couldn't stop looking around, it was perfect!

  2. I loved the boy and girl in the window. My favorite was the wreath! Did you buy three separate colors of boas or did you find a red//white/blue one? Too cute!

  3. We used three separate boas. It was so easy to make too!

  4. Julie, my girls are so crazy about Dr. Seuss! They'll love this :) Linking up this awesome post with us made the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop better and more special. Thank you!

  5. I am not sure if you still check the comments here but I was wondering do you happen to have any of the decorations left that you may be willing to sell? I know that the party was a year ago so it's not likely but I figured I would ask, as the decorations are amazing!!!

  6. I know that it isn't likely as the party was from a year ago but do you happen to have any decorations left that you may be willing to sell or any suggestions on how you made them, the girl and boy, the truffula trees, etc... I love the decorations and the party is amazing. My email is liamsmom0605 at gmail dot com if you could email me. Thank you so very much!

  7. Hi Julie! I just found your blog on Pinterest today and I'm so glad I did. Love your Dr. Seuss party and you have given me so many great ideas. I'm planning a Dr. Seuss baby shower and was wondering where you got your large Suess that was outside and the garage cutouts as well?
