For the cake, I used Rice Krispee treats to form the top of the mountain where the Grinch lives and placed it on top of a round cake. As you can tell, I didn't have enough bottom scenery on the bottom of the cake but it looked alright.
To add a little whimsical appeal, I used a cookie cutter that matched the top of the plastic cups and cut them out when they were still hot from the oven. I used the straws to mold the hole while hot as well to avoid crumbling the cookie later. If I had wanted to, I could have added green food coloring to the milk but I try to avoid too much dye.
The presents and large ornaments helped to provide the Who world of whimsy as well. The Grinch was from Build-A-Bear which is my girls' favorite place.
The tree was weighed down with a large ornament and string and the water bottle labels read WH20. Cookies were made in the shape of presents.
Cake pops were made to look like ornaments. My oldest made the cake pops and present shaped cookies. If I had given her more time, she would have made them Grinch shaped.
No party is complete without handmade adorable Grinch hats from The Blue Magnolia Etsy shop who I have to say is amazing both with communication, speed and quality.
All in all, the girls enjoyed the party and although it was impromptu, they loved the decorations. I saved them for next year where I can retry making it an even nicer party.
