Lorax Birthday Party Food

Today is the last of the Lorax birthday party features. It’s sad and happy all at the same time. After months of planning this party, I am ready for Lorax mania to be over – but on the other hand, I’ll have to find something else to occupy my time with. Today I want to focus on the food. That’s the best part of any party right? Since the party was at 4 in the afternoon, I didn’t provide a large meal, just some munchies and, of course, dessert.

Originally, I was going to place orange slices in a glass apothecary jar with a yellow mustache attached to the front. But, I opted for a more simple arrangement that matched the rest of the food setup.

I love these little Babybel cheeses! All we did to make the mustaches was cut mustache shapes out of American cheese slices and place them on top of the Babybel cheese.

To make truffula seeds, I steamed edamame in the microwave and added some sea salt for flavor. This is one of my favorite treats, and all the kids I know love it too!

You can never go wrong with goldfish, so I put some whole grain fish mixed with flavor blasted ones to make humming fish.

Grapes look a lot like truffula fruit {just smaller} so I used those for a healthy option that goes with the theme.

And of course, you can never go wrong with Barbaloot snacks! I think Barbaloots are one of my favorite parts of the Lorax movie. They’re so adorable and cuddly! Since they love marshmallows so much, I mixed up some mini-mallows and chocolate teddy grahams for a barba-licious treat!

I tried to keep the drinks simple. For the kids I had some fruitables juice boxes and Horizon milk boxes. As you can see, I wrapped them in paper and for the Barbaloot Fruit Juice I added some googley eyes to the front, then the Butterfly milk got some 3D butterfly embellishments.

For the adults, I made some flavored water. It was so simple to make, but the fruit really kicks it up a notch. All you have to do is slice some oranges and lemons and place them in the water. To make it swomee swan-y I added a few drops of blue food coloring.

And last but definitely not least, are the truffula tree cupcakes! I am super proud of these, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. The cupcakes themselves were just a funfetti cake mix. I used whipped cream cheese frosting dyed green and piped onto the tops to make the “grass.” Then added some green sugar sprinkles on the top for a little more depth. But the fun part of the cupcakes is the truffula trees of course! I used this recipe for meringue cookies to make them. I’ve always heard that meringue is extremely finicky and hard to work with, but this recipe made it super easy. The only tip I’d add on top of the ones they include in the recipe would be to make sure you fill in the meringue cookies when you’re piping them. You need something for the straw tree trunks to sink into. You can purchase the birch straws here. They’re amazing I love them so much! To give the illusion of a truffula tree forest, I cut the straws to different length to add depth. You might have noticed that the cupcakes are sitting on what appears to be grass. If you’re not familiar with the lawn bottle drying rack by Boon, you’re missing out! I have had one for quite some time, and am in love. Plus, it’s great for party decor!

  1. These cupcakes are so cute and look so easy. My question is when do you put the straw into the cookie?

    • Thank you! I added the straws after the cookies were set. But, I was thinking you could probably place the straws on a cookie sheet and then pipe the tree tops onto them…?
