Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax: Truffula Tree Treats  

As prepared by Pizzazzerie

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.
