PARTY DETAILS, as told by Heather

This kitty cat party was truly “purr-fect!” The color scheme was gray, hot pink and orange and was fashioned after our adorable invitation cat. Decorations included a “wall” of paper lanterns (simply hung by fishing line and then connected to one another), chalk pots with cat faces (with floral), a gray paper lantern made into a cat face, orange tablecloth made out of fabric with a hot pink “fur” table runner and paper plates with cat ears (hot glued a thick felt ear to the backs of the plates).  The food included a beautiful cake with a custom fondant cat topper with balls of yarn and cupcake toppers made to match our invitation cat.  Milk bottles with paper straws were used on the table with ribbon and paper circle accents.  A clear glass container with goldfish and a container of cheese with a fabric mouse added a sense of whimsy to the tablescape.

In another room, I needed a centerpiece.  I used a stuffed cat in a large bowl with balls of yarn that had many “oohing and aahing”.  I used extra fabric over picture frames to feature our invitation and to highlight my daughter at different ages (making the photos black and white).  A glass container with orange and pink gumballs finished off the space (which I found were less expensive to purchase individually then by the pound!).

The 5 year olds did a game of pin the bow on the cat, they wore their cat headbands (made by me) and I whiskered them up when they came in.  They had an adopt a cat station where they used “kitty bling” to make a collar (using ribbon I cut, a small paper medallion and then rhinestone stickers for them to accent).  We completed an online adoption certificate to make it “official”.  They then hunted their own mouse (I sewed one for each girl and put her name on it hidden within the house) with their new kitty cat.

I used the 5” cake paper centerpiece and had it blown up by a local printer to play the pin the bow on the cat game.  I used pink cardstock to cut the bows out and then a tacky wax for them to adhere it to the paper poster.  The favor bags were made with a plain gray paper bag.  I used a 2 “ paper punch for the eyes and added a button.  Paper ears and whiskers finished it off.  They included party items that were cat themed and my daughter insisted Kit-Kat bars be included!

    I bought headbands from Joann’s. I used a heavy felt and cut the ears out (with the black/ grey triangle oversized to account for going around the headband). I used hot glue and a year later the girls are still wearing them!

  8. Janis says:

    Where/ how long ago did you purchase the “adopt a kitten” cats from Oriental Trading… I have been looking everywhere for a good deal on some cute little stuffed cats to do this! Yours are darling, haven’t found anything close…

  9. Heather Nawolski says:

    I purchased them from Oriental Trading Company in January 2013. I can remember them running low, not being able to find them, and then finding them again. I think when they run out they pull them from the website. We are planning now for another party and about 3 weeks ago I saw the cats in their paper catalog. If you have time, they may become available again. Good Luck!

  10. Jennifer says:

    Can you tell me where you found the party favor bags?

  11. Moni says:

    So cute! How can I purchase the printable?

  12. How did you make or where did you buy the mouse?

  13. Becky says:

    Where did you find the white collar tags to decorate? Love this idea!!

    • Heather Nawolski says:

      I used a paper punch to make the circles and another punch to put the ribbon through.

  14. looks like a mouse dog toy cute idea

    • Heather Nawolski says:

      I actually made the mice. I made a paper pattern and then sewed them with my machine, stuffed them and then hand stitched them shut.
