You may recall that Kate is our party planner...and she plans way in advance! Back in July Kate came up with the awesome idea that we should have a kitty birthday party for Millie (Kate has also decided she is going to have a Frozen party for her 5th birthday...ha)! Anyway, I was so impressed with the idea and will admit I don't think I would have come up with this idea on my own. It was totally perfect seeing that Millie is our CAT-LOVER! One of our back neighbors has a cat that sometimes jumps up on our wall and it seriously makes Millie's day when we get to see him!
As Millie says her "meow par-tee" was a huge success! It was so much fun to plan and decorate for! I was especially excited about her cake. I made fondant for the first time to make face parts and it turned out great. I spent a good hour piping on all the fur but it was totally worth it. Millie adored it! Although poor girl was quite concerned when we cut it.
I made kitty ears for all of Millie's friends...although only one kid was interested in wearing them...oh well. We had some fun activities including: Color a Kitty coloring pages, Kitty Storytime where we read cat themed books, Pin the Bow on the Cat, Mouse Hunt where we searched for these cute little mouse cat toys, and a Famous Cat Names Trivia for the adults! I tried to have a cat/mouse themed lunch that included: chicken salad croissants (I originally wanted to do tuna but figured no one loves tuna that much to serve it at a party), fruit and veggies platters, cheese and crackers, pretzel gold fish, Trader Joe kitty cat crackers, Swedish fish, and individual milks. It turned out really fun and I think everyone had a great time! I know Millie did!
