Since Dr. Seuss’ birthday is coming up on March 2 we wanted to share a great idea for a kids birthday party. This particular party was for my twins first birthday.  Because when finding out you are having twins wouldn’t the first thought be of thing 1 and thing 2? I know it was for me.

For decorations we decided to display a few books from the Seuss library. We figured, why not go with the original?  The other decorations that were used throughout the room were all purchased through Birthday Express and Etsy .

To make the cake we found these amazing Thing 1 and Thing 2 Edible fondant cake toppers from Etsy and built the cakes around them. For the smash cakes we found red and white striped candle stick holders from Gold Canyon Co. and topped them with white 8 inch square dinner plates.

Easily Entertained tip: If you can’t find the exact candle stick holders you can take plain white candle sticks and either paint red stripes or use red Duct tape.
