Thursday Giveaway: Very Hungry Caterpillar Party Supplies!

Happy Birthday to the Very Hungry Caterpillar! Sunday, March 20th is Very Hungry Caterpillar Day and we feel like celebrating another great year with our favorite Eric Carle character! How better to celebrate 41 years of such a memorable and beloved book than throwing a party! Today we are giving away a suite of Very Hungry Caterpillar-themed party supplies. These are some of our hottest sellers on our website and for this special day, we're giving one lucky blog reader a complete set so they can throw their own Caterpillar party! They make the perfect decorations for birthday parties, baby showers or for any kind of party, really. This giveaway includes 1 package each of: Paper plates, cups, bowls, party hats, party horns, balloons, cupcake wrappers, big bowls, a tablecloth, invitations, thank you notes, pin badges, stickers, bubbles, favor bags, birthday banner and birthday garland! You can check our website here to see how many of each come in a package (usually about 6-8 per package). All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below before Friday, March 18th at 12:00 EST. After that we'll close the comments and announce the lucky winner. Good luck and party on! Comments now closed. I'm a bit late announcing the winner because we are having such a busy and wonderful birthday weekend here at The Carle, but the winner of the party supply set is....Jana Putos! Congratulations, Jana. We'll be in touch with you shortly about sending your prizes. Thank you all for your lovely birthday wishes and we'll be back in April for another giveaway!

My soon to be 7 year old says "We would throw a party for my 7th b-day in April! We would give every kid a caterpillar to take home to grow into a butterfly - we would read the book and serve all the food that the caterpillar eats - we would talk about science and how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly. And my Mom would make 2 cakes - a caterpillar and a butterfly!"
