Walker’s Very Hungry Caterpillar Party


First birthday party for my son using Very Hungry Caterpillar theme.

Design Inspiration

The cupcake cake, which I saw online.  It inspired the whole theme.

Decorating Style

Modern, whimsy, and fun!

Project Details

I ordered the green cupcakes from a bakery, then made the red face myself using a 6-inch pan.  The face details are felt with purple pipecleaner antennae.  I found a Very Hungry Caterpillar sticker book at B&N, which I used to make the food tags.

Favorite Items

My favorites were the caterpillar cupcake cake, the caterpillar balloons and the food tags.


I read a lot of blogs and got a lot of ideas online, so do your research and build the theme from an item that inspires!

Cute thing you did with the red and green balloons! I like that the theme is simple and the details easy to execute, nothing overboard and overly extravagant.
