How to Throw a Thing One Thing Two Twin Birthday Party
Thing One and Thing Two, from The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss, is a popular twin birthday party theme.

From the invitations to the cake to the outfits, there are so many fun ways that you can use this theme for every aspect of the party. Happy planning!

There are tons of Dr. Seuss invitations available online, but there are only a handful that are specifically for Thing One and Thing Two. A red and turquoise blue invitation is perfectly fine as well. If you can't find exactly what you want, I recommend designing an invitation yourself or contacting an Etsy seller who takes custom requests.
Most people use red and turquoise or aqua blue for a Thing 1 Thing 2 birthday party, as these are the colors that the characters wear in the Dr. Seuss book. You don't need to feel limited to it, but most items that you'll find online and in party stores that fit the theme will have these colors. It's a classic combination that works well with both boys and girls.
Banners, Balloons, and Other General Décor
It is not hard to find red and turquoise blue party decorations including banners and balloons. In order to avoid going overboard with theme, it is preferable to include some plain colored items or patterned items without a Dr. Seuss theme (i.e. stripes, polka dots, chevrons) in with the Thing 1 Thing 2 items.

The Food Table
Creating signs and labels for the food table is all the rage for parties these days. From kid birthday parties to backyard graduation barbecues to formal weddings, you find creative food table displays everywhere. Whether or not you have lots of Dr. Seuss themed food items, it's easy enough to create little red or blue signs describing the offerings.
Cakes / Cupcakes
Of course no birthday party is complete without some type of dessert. You can't go wrong with a classic cake, and cupcakes remain a popular choice as well. There is a ton of inspiration online for Thing 1 Thing 2 cupcakes that are not hard to make yourself. Search Pinterest or Google. Many local bakeries and grocery stores are also happy to make custom birthday desserts.

How to Make Thing 1 & Thing 2 Cupcakes Dr Seuss
One simple, well received party favor idea is a sweets table in which the guests can fill up little goodie bags to take home. As many people have already stuffed themselves full of appetizers, sandwiches, and cake, they are more likely to enjoy a little something later in the day or later that week. Of course you can also offer smaller desserts, such as chocolate covered pretzels, for people to enjoy at the party as well. If you're including pre-packaged candy on the table, consider making or buying candy wrappers to personalize it for the Dr. Seuss theme. There are lots of free downloads available online, too.
High Chairs / Table Decorations
You may have already covered the table and high chair decorations in the general décor and food table areas. If not, think about some special touches that you can include on the high chairs (or, for older kids and adults, other designated birthday boy / girl spots) and the tables. For example, if the party space has some little side tables, you can spread any of the smaller food items (i.e. M&Ms, nut mixes) on those tables.
Birthday Boy / Girl Outfits
While a birthday outfit is a little frivolous, it is also a lot of fun. Thing One Thing Two is a popular Halloween costume, which means that it's not hard to find ideas for it online for infants to adults and everyone in between. Adding a Thing 1 or Thing 2 circle to a red onesie, t-shirt, or sweatshirt is one of the easiest ways to make a costume. Not all babies are willing to wear blue hats or wigs, but the blue adds a cute touch to the ensemble.
