A Dr. Seuss Themed Baby Shower


Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the baby shower of my Delta Zeta sorority sister, Jenni. We may be a few years out of college but there are a core group of girls that I am so lucky to have met and still have in my life. Along with Jenni is one of my best friends, Susie, who put on the shower.

Susie, who was my college roommate in the CSUF DZ house, did an AH-mazing job with the shower. She transformed her home into a Dr. Seuss wonderland! From real life red fish, blue fish, to the green deviled eggs, to a live Cat in the Hat, the theme was present everywhere. Hands down the best baby shower I have ever attended.


Everyone in attendance was blown away by the decor and attention to detail. My favorite part was all of the games we played. I am so competitive and I love winning. But who doesn't?

Mommy-to-be and me!


Not gonna lie, I was scared of The Cat in the Hat...


Susie and me

Our hostess recently started making cakes and she does a great job. Her creativity excels above and beyond. My photo doesn't do justice to the cake she made for the shower. It was three tiers, all with their own flavors. And atop that cake? The Cat in the Hat, of course! Pretty great for someone who is new to cake making. I wouldn't be surprised if one day she goes into cake making professionally. I was trying to convince her to start planning parties!


If you are in need of a theme, I'd say a Dr. Seuss baby shower is the way to go.

On a fashion note: you can't really see my outfit but I was rockin' the Target. Kinda want to wear that outfit everyday! I picked up a boyfriend blazer for $20, tunic for less than $20, and borrowed a pair of my mom's pumps that she got for a steal at $20. You can't see the heels in the photos, so here they are:

Your friend did a fabulous job planning the baby shower. Everything looks perfect and I love the theme! The cake also looks way too cute to even cut into. I cannot believe the hostess made it. It does look really professional. Your friend, Jenni looks fantastic and the pic of you with the Cat cracks me up. The cat is a little creepy.

Your outfit looks great and I love that it’s from Target. They really do have some of the best things for a great price. The shoes are super cute!
