Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax arrives in movie theaters on March 2, 2012 (what would be Dr. Seuss’ 108th birthday!).
Why not celebrate the latest 3-D film with a little pre-movie party? With a few whimsical and festive touches, you can dress up your party space and serve some tasty treats! Your inspiration? Truffula Trees
. Central to the movie, these trees feature colorful wooly branches that support the forest ecosystem of “Thneed-Ville.”
Use inexpensive Astroturf (available at most hardware stores) as a grass-like party table covering. Print and frame assorted Lorax movie posters (available online) and display on your dessert table. Next, set up a simple arts and crafts station for kids to create their own Truffula Trees using pipe cleaners and colored pom-poms.
As for desserts, a few simple ingredients are all you need to bake up some deliciously dramatic Truffula Tree Treats
for your Lorax party. Present them on a brightly colored cake stand for guests to enjoy!
