where the wild things are party

first, i want to thank you all for your nice comments on the invitations, and party favors i posted.the party went really well, and most importantly ezra and all his cousins had a blast!this year, i served more simple food, and focused more on the games and entertainment, since ezra is starting to get to the age where fun is more important.here are a few pictures from the party.

crown walk : we put the gold crown numbers in a circle, when the music stopped we would call out a number, and the person on the number won a prize!we also had a reading of the book at the beginning of the party. and, the small guests helped act out the book.
“thank you” mints for the older guests that said, “thanks for coming to the party … wild thing.” and, of course the party favor boxes for the kidswhere the wild things are cake the birthday boyย of course, i can’t believe this little guy is three?!

    I'm not surprised that it's absolutely perfect. I love the wands and the green and white color scheme. You have amazing taste and talent in making things pretty great.

    I love it! A fresh, original theme, and such a cute result. I particularly love the welcome sign and pin the tail on Max. Lucky Ezra!

    I just keep coming back to this party! Love it! This may be a weird question but I was wondering you could let me know where you found the individual ranch containers? Thanks!

  9. Rose's Notes

    The presentation of your veggies and fruit is great. I'll eat it up — I love it so. What a wild rumpus this must have been! There is a Maurice Sendak exhibit at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, now, Spring 2013. Maybe I will have an after-museum-trip gathering to use some of your ideas. Thanks for sharing.

    I will be doing this party this weekend for my little girl (she turns 1)
    I was wondering how did you do the pin the tail on the max? I googled the image but for some reason I can not detach the tail =( I was going to Staples to get them to print it

    Hi. Does anyone know the copyright law on the images for "where the wild things are". I wanted to make and possibly sell something with an image used from the book but I'm not sure where I can possibly buy the image. Any help is greatly appreciated

    @ amy adams.

    my guess is it is copyrighted for reselling the images.

    hope this helps.

    Caroline thank you. I see people making stuff with the image. I'm wondering how they can do it.
