For my son’s first birthday, I decided to go with The Very Hungry Caterpillar theme. I had yet to discover the joys of Pinterest, but came up with some pretty awesome ideas! I love to make things on my own, so all the decorations were DIY projects for me. Read part 2 on food ideas here. Read part 3 on more decoration ideas here.

From food to decorations and more, I have tons of ideas to share! Over the next couple of days, I’ll share the best of them so you can throw the ultimate Very Hungry Caterpillar birthday party. You’ll love the DIY Very Hungry Caterpillar photo banner and the ease of making a Very Hungry Caterpillar balloons.

I’ll be sharing all the food ideas from the caterpillar kabobs to Very Hungry Caterpillar M&Ms. I’ll even share how to make this adorable Very Hungry Caterpillar birthday shirt!
