Planning a Lorax Birthday Party

Well it is that time.  Another birthday party to plan!  Hard to believe that in just a few short months we will be celebrating Teagan’s 2nd birthday.  Seriously, doesn’t seem possible.  But it is which means it is time to get into party planning mode for this special little lady. 


When I started to think about what theme we should have for her 2nd birthday I knew that this would be the last theme we would get to choose for her.  From here on out she will be the senior planner of her birthdays just like Jude is now. 

If you would have asked me what theme we would do for her 6 months ago I would have said Elmo…hands down no questions asked but here we are and Elmo is not joining us.  Instead the one that speaks for the trees will be our special guest to help us celebrate!  The Lorax!!  In the last couple of months Teagan {and Jude} have been becoming increasingly obsessed with this movie and I’ve got to be honest, I am too!  I love this story and love that my kids love it too. 

I have 2 months to pull this fun and colorful theme together and I cannot wait to get started!

Here are my ideas so far!

Planning a Lorax Themed Birthday Party


Location – being that we live in Colorado we are going to rent out the same room at our local rec center that we did last year just to be safe.  You never know – it could be HOT or a blizzard.  Hey welcome to Colorado. 

Food – Going easy for this!  Veggie and fruit trays, pizzas and garlic bread! 

Treats – Going to incorporate some Truffula Trees and bright colored treats for everyone.  Thinking of some cotton candy Trufflula Trees, bright candies and rock candies.

Cake – I love the idea of a cake topper with the Lorax and then cupcakes with the Lorax on them.  Orange of course!

Decorations – Bright colors everywhere.  Thinking of a fun Lorax Wreath instead of a birthday banner.  Great printables all around the room with the Lorax quotes.  Orange and yellow and some grass green will be the main colors.

Activity – because we are inside we will need an activity for the kids to stay entertained.  Since the Lorax speaks for the trees I would love to make Lorax flower pots and have the kiddos plant some seeds!

Goodie bags – I would like to make orange Lorax treat bags to have everyone take home some of their own treats from the treat bar.  Yum!

Invites – still deciding on this one.  So many cute options! 


So that is the plan.  I cannot wait to dive in an get creative.  I love this theme and know that Teagan will be so excited to see Truffula Trees and her favorite Lorax at her party! 


I would love any tips or ideas on how to make this party pop!!  So share away!!
