I absolutely love party planning. I want to share some of my party planning themes with you. I always use my Ultimate Party Planner to plan out my party. You can check it out here.
When my youngest daughter turned two, she really wanted a kitty. She was obsessed with cats. We decided it was the right time for our family to get a cat, and a friend's cat was having kittens, so it was meant to be!
I toyed with the color purple as the theme color, but I wasn't loving it, and then I came across this kitty dress and tshirt. So coral and lavender became the colors!
I designed the invitations. I printed them two sided and then cut the cardstock in half. I folded them and sealed them with coordinating colored washi tape.
Next was the cake. I love ombre. #ombreallthethings I chose a simple round cake with ombre airspray, and then I made these tiny balls of yarn and attached them to some paper straws in coordinating colors.
I found these great plates, napkins, and cups in similar colors. I also purchased a lavender tablecloth and orange table runner. I found wooden utensils and paper straws with coordinating color stripes on them.
For the decor, I opted for kitty litter and cat food. Everyone got a kick out of this!
I also found these tiny kitty figures. I spelled out "CAT" with blocks, and placed some Swedish Fish in an apothecary container. I also made more yarn balls.
I read "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake" during the party.
The time of this party allowed for light refreshments, just punch and cake. I served a coral drink (peach mint tea), and a lavender drink (blueberry spritzer). Garnished with fresh mint and blueberries.
I also served strawberry, chocolate, and regular milk in these milk bottles, tied with yarn.
Each child adopted a kitty. They named their new friend and received an adoption certificate. They were sent home with their new kitty, a feeding dish, kitty stickers, Swedish Fish, a KitKAT, and goldfish crackers, all in a cute little basket.
This was one of my favorite parties to plan! It was unique and fun!
