The Very Hungry Little Dude

Anyone that knows our Little Dude understands that The Very Hungry Caterpillar  is the perfect theme for the first birthday party of his life.  Not only have we watched him emerge from his cocoon as a beautiful butterfly, the boy looooves to eat.  The menu was determined by the book (with the addition of Corn Chowder and a salad).  This is where I found the free printable food tags.  So without further ado, here is a picture-heavy post of today's festivities:
These window crayons are so neat!  They're Crayola Window Crayons and you can get them at Evans if you live locally.

The red & green balls are Sixlets. Buy them at JoAnn's with your coupon, otherwise they're pretty pricey. They are gluten-free and surprisingly reminiscent of malted milk balls (which are not gf).

marshmallow ice cream cones, spearmint leaves, lollipops,
& chocolate cake (brownies)

pickles, cheese, sausage, salami (turkey summer sausage),
& strawberries

cherry tarts
watermelon and fruit
