The Very Hungry Caterpillar Theme

Books are such an important part of childhood and I am loving seeing the parties which are being based around a much loved children’s book – such as the Very Hungry Caterpillar which is a book my daughter is just starting to enjoy at the moment!

This party theme can involve bright and bold decorations and also gives you the chance to serve some delicious fruit as an option for your dessert table to match the fruits in the book.

Given that there are so many party themes relating to TV characters, I think that any party theme related to reading/books is a winner in my eyes!

Hope you enjoy my selection of ideas =)
