I love these balloons. I used Studio DIY's tutorial, but just used tracing paper instead of tissue paper because I could run them through the printer with no taping involved. Yes, I outlined those cat heads in photoshop. Yes, I created a 15 cat head document and printed one out for each of the 9 balloons. Yes, I cut each one of those bad boys out and spray glued them on the balloons. But I love them and will make my own balloons from here on out, friends.
I got this awesome cat wrapping paper from Paper Source. Those cats are hipsters. I had a couple frames on hand (who am I kidding I have 12 frames in my attic) and framed 2 sheets and then used the rest to cover some $1 plastic cups I got from the party store.
Yeah, that cat garland... I created that poster on my own in Photoshop (heavily inspired by the one from this wedding) and then printed a super cheap photocopy. Lola helped me color one kitty peach. The other one's hat is the pattern from the back of the invitations. Yeah, I did that.
One of my absolutely favorite parts of this party, the Bloody Meowy Bar. Again, not my idea- I took it from here- but it's so fun. PS- If anyone wants to come over for a Bloody Mary, I still have about a gallon. No kittens need to be involved.
Well, a kitten must have ears. Nothing a little felt and hot glue can't fix.
Whiskers, yes those are important to a kitten too. A cats gotta navigate...
One little kitty...
Two little kitties...
You gotta have some party games. I had John put together a couple very basic bean bag toss boards, I painted them white and drew a couple hungry (maybe sleepy, who knows- I can't draw eyes) cats. Thankfully, I delegated the mice bean bags to my mom- aren't they the cutest!?
I used the Mr Printables Cats! Cupcake Wrappers. Print and cut, yes I'm familiar with that by this point. I loved it though because it totally didn't matter what my cupcakes looked like. They were getting a big hug from these cute cats! I made a little Meow Felt banner but it gets kinda lost with all that pastel.
Family photo- Take 1
The favors were goldfish. A real no-brainer because that's how I felt by the end.
And can we just talk about this dress for a second? I used this pattern, and found the fabric on Spoonflower- it turned out so cute! I cut a couple corners with the pattern, it's best for all of us if I don't say and you try not to notice.
And then she rode off into the sunset.
To be clear- I love my Lola. This list is how I would describe her, and while there are days I feel like "where have I gone wrong with this child??", she is one of the best gifts I've ever received in my life.
Happy Birthday Loli Worm!
