They may not eat them on a boat. They may not eat them with a goat. But your guests will certainly eat anything you serve them on this cheerful spring table inspired by the colorful, bold world of Dr. Seuss.

A multi-hued table runner emulates the winding, rainbow-colored roads in Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, as do napkins with bold stripes. An abstract bird pitcher evokes the Dr.’s otherworldly characters, while an elephant-shaped creamer is a perfect stand-in for Horton—just make sure it doesn’t try to sit on the deviled eggs. Finally, a set of whimsical, polka-dotted bowls look even sweeter when filled with scoops of ice cream or slices of a cake topped with pompoms that sway as softly as the The Lorax’s beloved Truffula trees.
