Theodore Geisel

Give a Dr Seuss Themed Party

Red and white striped cup filled with popcorn
Anything red and white striped is instantly evocative of Dr Seuss, especially if you through in a little bright blue! How about filling up some party paper cups with popcorn? If you can't find stripes, you could always add your own with a red marker, and write on each child's name - that way they could double up place settings!
