The Hungry Caterpillar was also a great choice because Pinterest has a ton of fantastic ideas for Hungry Caterpillar parties. It was a great party, and Mini really enjoyed having friends and family all in one room - she had plenty of plates to mooch food off of. She just went from person to person and scored bites of cupcake, grapes, cheese and gosh knows what else.
I did learn one pro-mom tip for future 1'st birthdays - red food colouring on the smash cake = red poops for at least the next three days. Oops! The next kid gets white.
