Costumes 4 Less Party Decorations #SeussBirthday

Every party needs decorations, and I tend to go a bit overboard when it comes to decorations!  I actually ordered gifts for my daughter AND party decorations all in the same place from  Yes, Costumes 4 Less also has party supplies and gifts!  This awesome online retailer literally has it all! 

I ordered a ton to give this party the snazz it's what I got: 

-Cat in the Hat cardboard cut-out stand up.
-Cat in the Hat hooded beach towel
-Cat in the Hat chair
-Red and Bermuda blue tablewear
-Party pack with red/blue balloons, streamers, decor
-Plastic champagne flutes
-Red paper lanterns garland
-Blue flag banner

I know there was a bunch more that I ordered along with that!  Anyways, a couple of the things I ordered I modified to make more "catty" decorations.  These were bought decorations with extra special time put into them giving the party more of a diy feel.

I especially order the red champagne flutes because when I was a kid I always loved pretending to drink out of the fancy cups.  Well these flues were fancy with a twist!  I painted white lines on all of the flutes so that they would resemble Cat in the Hat's hat.  Then I took the red paper lantern garland and when it arrived it's folded together, so when you open it up, it pops out to become a lantern.  Well I keep this unopened and then just painted the rims of it with my white.  I then popped it open and hung to dry, but this created a cute mod mini Cat in the the Hat's hat decorations!  Let me just say everyone loved them!  Sometimes you just have to think outside the box, for easy ways to decorate, get crafty and have a partay! 

The tableware was perfect, the party pack I bought came with a bunch of things, balloons, streamers, string, plates, napkins, forks, spoons, tablecloth.  It was the perfect colors too, the simple red and Bermuda blue.  My husband argued with me that it could be any blue and red and I had to correct him and tell him, no it has to be Bermuda Blue.  I was right!  I just loved the way the tables turned out.

I also ordered this gorgeous blue velour Cat in the Hat chair and stool.  Omg, I just love this chair, it's absolutely adorable!  My little "Sally" sat in this chair to open her presents, and of course to get her picture taken, but now she just sits in this chair when she's reading or simply relaxing.  This chair was awesome because it doubled as a whimsical decoration as well as a gift for the birthday girl. 

I just love Costumes4Less, if it weren't for them I wouldn't have been able to make such a tough theme work!  The kids had a blast and the decor was awesome!  I will certainly be retuning for all my party needs!
