"Thing 1 and Thing 2" Dr. Seuss Baby Shower
Dr. Seuss books are not only a part of many childhood memories; they can also make a great theme for a playful baby shower. For the parents of twins, tie the party to Thing One and Thing Two, the mischievous beings portrayed in “The Cat in the Hat.” Red and teal make a great start for this theme, as they are the things’ signature colors.
Start early with a themed invitation in the party’s colors. Serve blue cotton candy to play off the things’ wild hair or even top red velvet cupcakes with cotton candy. Because Dr. Seuss is a master of rhymes, play baby rhyme time with guests.
- Cut red and teal circles out of construction and scrapbook paper to decorate tables and walls.
- Make red and teal pom-poms to hang from the ceiling for added height.
- Use several Dr. Seuss books as added décor around the room. These can be purchased new or found inexpensively online or in used book stores, and they make great gifts for the twins.
