Dr. Seuss Birthday Party Ideas

Dr Seuss birthday party supplies
"Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one." -Dr. Seuss

Oh the places your party will go! This month’s Party of the Month is Dr. Seuss and Birthday Express has everything you need to plan the perfect Dr. Seuss themed party. Here are some of my favorite Dr. Seuss birthday party ideas!

Invitations - Get your guests into the party spirit with these Dr. Seuss Invitations. The package includes 8 invitations with envelopes and features all of my favorite Dr. Seuss characters on the front.

Party Decor - With the Dr. Seuss Balloon Bouquet and Dr. Seuss Wall Decal Set, your guests will walk in and be transported to Dr. Seuss' world of the Lorax and the Grinch. Start the party off right by giving each guest a Dr. Seuss Cone Hat and Dr. Seuss Blowout when they walk in the door. Mom and dad can also get in the spirit with several adult costumes available at Birthday Express. My favorite is the Adult Cat in the Hat Costume .

Food & Drink - The books of Dr. Seuss are filled with great food ideas. Spice up your typical deviled eggs with some green food dye and serve alongside some roast ham to get the classic green eggs and ham. And what better way to serve your party’s green eggs and ham than on the Dr. Seuss Dinner Plates. For dessert, the kids will go crazy for these Dr. Seuss Cupcake Wrapper and Box Kits. Each kid can get their own present with these individually wrapped boxes. You can either make a Dr. Seuss themed cupcake or buy some from the store and change out the wrappers.

Cell Phone Selfie Sticks at Cellular Outfitter

This post created in partnership with Blogdash.

Who would have thought a stick with a claw on the end would be such a big seller? How many times have you travelled and wanted to take a picture of yourself in front of something unique to the area? We don't all get to go to Florence and stand in front of the Ponte Vecchio, but if we're there, we want a picture of ourselves there, too. Inventor Wayne Fromm was there and decided to act upon his desire to take a picture with his daughter, with no room for a tripod and no desire to bother a stranger with perhaps a language difference. 10 years ago the first selfie stick was patented, and nowadays, most of the younger crowd has or wants one. Their arms are only so long and they want to see more than just a closeup of their face from their mobile.

That's where Cellular Outfitter comes into play. They have selfie sticks for taking that picture more than an arm's length away, letting anyone get him or herself and a few friends or the monument in the background into the picture.

40 Count Java Factory Single Cup Coffee Giveaway Jan 30 - Feb 22 #javafactory
My Thoughts:
When I tried Java Factory's Vanilla Dream is I decided that it was heaven in a cup and that a new favorite coffee! I added it to my wishlist so that my Mom would get me some for Christmas and when my second box of this awesome coffee arrived I couldn't wait and made a cup in the middle of the day. While Vanilla Dream is still my favorite, I enjoy all the different coffees in the variety box. Each one is smooth, flavorful, and delicious. My boyfriend tried several different ones. He likes a stronger coffee so the taste and the kick that Da Bomb offers appealed most to him. The variety box lets us both have our favorites. I would highly recommend Java Factory Single Cup Coffee to anyone that loves a great cup of coffee.

Two Rivers Coffee has graciously offered to give one lucky winner a 40 count variety box of Java Factory Single Cup Coffee for Keurig K Cup Brewers! For your chance to win just enter on the widget below. Remember the more entries you do the better your chances are of winning.

AdvoWire Change for the Worse

I recently posted How to Maximize Your Advowire Revenue. I used to like the place. I think they might have lost me with a more recent change. You used to be able to post to your Facebook Fan page from Advowire. Now you can't. For the same reason I don't post their offerings to LinkedIn, I don't want to post to my regular wall for my friends with their offerings. They didn't ask for them. If they care about my blog, they sign up for my blog/Fan page. 

So long Advowire? I'm not sure if it is worth it for just Twitter. Maybe once they add Pinterest... We'll see.

All About China Book Review for Multicultural Children's Book Day

All About China Book Review for Multicultural Children's Book Day
Living in a multicultural family creates some interesting challenges. Imagine standing on line in a store and the customer behind you speaking to your child in a language they think your child understands because of their skin color or facial features, but its the wrong language. The first time, I laughed it off. After a while, you kinda wonder what people are thinking.

With the books we get, our titles cover the whole gamut. We try to teach our son about everywhere in the world, and everyone in it. Where we're all from and with all our different abilities. We also make sure all characters are not just your typical, or atypical, Caucasian family, whether purple or green or brown. My wife and I have our favorite authors, that has evolved considerable as our son ages. Todd Parr was a favorite for the longest time when he was younger.
