My Six Year Old’s Cat Birthday Party

2016 September 2

Wow – did I just say six?! Craziness – my little baby is so big! This year for her birthday party she requested a cat theme and I was really happy to comply. This party was the simplest we’ve pulled off yet – just add cat ears to everything!

Since she is a summer baby, we have had parties each year at my in-law’s pool. A bit ironic, since real cats would have nothing to do with the water! It’s so nice to be able to sit around and let the kids work off their party-sugar in the pool.

I saved a ton of inspiration in my Cat Birthday Party Pinterest board. Thank goodness for all the amazing and creative people on the interwebs! We copied a lots of our ideas from there.

My oldest used her drawing skills to make most of the signs. I tried to make a cat cake – pink as per the party girl’s request. It turned out super cute – but my buttercream melted a bit in heat. The sides of the cake slipped and the cat ended up sitting in a puddle of frosting – yummy – but not exactly as planned. (Next year’s goal – better buttercream!)

All the party photos look a bit bedraggled since we couldn’t keep her out of the pool long enough to set up before photos. Life will go on! #justkeepingitreal

What is your favorite kids’ party theme? (I might be planning next year already!)

    Congratulations on her birthday! Six years already, so she is going to the first grade? Love the adoption certificates, great idea. I don’t like to plan birthdayparty’s and I’m always glad its over and we survived ;) And until this year I only had birthdayparty’s for the eldest. In January my son wil have his first party for classmates… I try not to think of that already. All those boys, busy breaking down my house ;)

      Yes! I agree Mirjam – It’s nice when it’s over and we survived :) I love planning them – but I tend to go a bit overboard and plan too much – gotta learn how to simplify!

    When I first saw the title I read “my six year old cat’s birthday.” I thought, seriously, you just had a 6th birthday party for a cat? This should be interesting. Ha!

    My daughter just turned four and had a sheep party. A new painted sheep shirt, sheep cake, and sheep games (Pin the Tail on the Sheep, Hide and Go Sheep, Don’t Eat Sheep). Now Daddy’s birthday is coming up very soon and she has decided he needs a dragon party – so I’ll need to paint him a dragon shirt, make a dragon cake and we can play Pin the Tail on the Dragon.

      Haha! That’s so funny Mindy! Love that :) Our cat is only 3 – so no party yet! Love your sheep party idea. That’s so cute! And your dragon party sounds awesome – very manly :) Love it!
