A Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party

In addition to the invitations, I also helped out with some of the decorations for Emmett’s first birthday party. Chau found a local baker who did such a fabulous job with the beautiful cake, smash cake, and the cutest cupcakes ever! Chau and her sister also worked really hard to put all the extra details together, and her mom and extended family made tons of homemade Vietnamese food that was so delicious! Let me say, this family knows how to throw a party! And I have to mention that Chau and Quoc have a gorgeous home that is just perfect for throwing parties. :)


For Emmett’s birthday present, I decided to make him a felt version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar that included felt pieces of all the fruits and junk foods that the caterpillar ate. I’ll share more details and a printable DIY in a follow-up post. :) *Edit: Find the printable here!

  1. I love the simplicity and elegance of your birthday! Thank you so much for sharing your pictures and for sharing the tutorial on the felt book. Look forward to making one for my little guy!

  2. What a cute and very elegant party! I love this idea and the felt books are adorable and look very easy to do :) I’m going to miss my youngest granddaughters first bday (we are in nc and they are in Alaska) :( so I’ve been trying to find something unique that I could send her…and I think that is it!
