I know this is a year late in posting. I know. But in my defense, shortly after this party we had 2 international moves with 2 kids, 2 and less than 6 months. No easy feat, my friend. So posting this party fell by the way side. But this year’s party was amazing and I HAD to post. Which made me nostalgic… and here we are.
Last year I decided on a black and white cat themed party. My MIL gave me some fun wrapping paper for Christmas, which sparked an idea and the theme bloomed.
We decided with a 4 month old at home, we weren’t up for hosting, so we held the party at a nearby pre-school, which was perfect. We only had the room for so long, so I couldn’t get too crazy with the decorations, I didn’t have to worry too much about the mess, and there would toys. Done and done.
Also, because I had a 4 month old, I made and organized all the decorations, but I left it to my husband and my mother in law to set up. They did a great job.
We had a #2 balloon, which the birthday girl loved.
The table had kitty headbands, cat confetti, and labeled cups.
Let’s just say we still have some of those headbands and they were my halloween costume last year!
The food turned out super cute– swedish fish and fish crackers, cat shaped sandwiches, veggies with hummus, and rainbow fruit.
Of course with cute plates and cups!
And the kitty cat cake! My husband made it (why do I ever doubt him?).
And my very favorite photo ever–
For activities, we had a cat themed story time, and made a cat mask. And toys, of course!
It was one of our best parties– the kids loved it and it wasn’t over complicated. I’ll have to remember that for next year!
