Who has a child who loves Curious George?! If you do, then this adorable CURIOUS GEORGE FOURTH BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Meredith Tomasulo of That’s My Kind of Party is for you! So many darling ideas here that you won’t want to miss!

Meredith said this about planning the party- “My son turned 4, I can’t believe it – seems like just yesterday we were bringing the little guy home. He is all boy and loves his firetrucks but he also really loves to read – especially Curious George. The week after my daughter’s 2nd birthday (here) he told me he definitely wanted a ‘George’ party. It is all he talked about so I started planning. When we read Curious George and the Firefighters I knew I had to combine both ideas AND give every child the book as the favor.

DECOR: It wasn’t hard to combine the Curious George and the Firetruck theme. I printed pictures from the book and had them framed on the table. I laid a bookcase on its side and filled the shelves with bananas, Curious George stuffed animal and a fire hat. There was a fireman’s pole with George sliding down on the table. We also used lots of firetrucks around the room. The fireman hats were hung on a frame that the kids grabbed as they headed outside. As a tradition the front door was painted in the birthday theme- A big Curious George holding balloons.

FOOD AND SWEETS: The birthday boy had 2 requests-cupcakes in a icecream cone and pirate booty/popcorn in popcorn boxes. No problem. Twizzlers were fireman poles, banana runt candy and pretzels were monkey food and the kids loved the donut holes and the fruit skewers. I made my famous cake pops with rainbow sprinkles. The kids ate Chef pisghetti bagel bites and the adults had homemade baked ziti.

ACTIVITIES: The local Fire Co sent a Firetruck to our house! We called 4 Alarm Fire and all the kids ran outside. They got to climb inside the truck, sit in the chairs, try on the boots and hats and my son even got to sound the siren before they left. The faces on the kids when this truck pulled up was priceless!!

FAVORS: All kids received a firemans hat with a George sticker on the front, Curious George and the Firefighters book and a swirl lollipop.”

  1. Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!

  2. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

  3. Hi! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the excellent work!

  4. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  5. Thanks on your marvelous posting! I definitely enjoyed reading it, you will be a great author.I will make certain to bookmark your blog and may come back at some point. I want to encourage yourself to continue your great writing, have a nice holiday weekend!
