A black cat birthday party

So it was about time for us to throw a party at our house. We haven’t had one since Halloween — since the week our kitchen was ripped out — and most of our friends hadn’t seen the updates yet. Now that all of our major construction is done, it was time. We picked a date for a party, and, well, it also just so happened to be two days after Trixie’s 13th birthday. Obviously we had to have a birthday party for her!

And yes, Trixie is a cat.

I tend to go a little overboard when it comes to any sort of theme. I just can’t help it because it’s SO FUN! This one was super easy. Since Trixie is all black, we decided to do everything in black and white — the decorations, the food, our outfits.

This was also the first time we’ve used our trough dining room table by Play-Haus Design for its intended purpose. I mean, let’s face it, it’s a dining table — but it’s really a beer table! It worked awesome and everyone loved it.

Cat clothes. Duh.

I made Andy a t-shirt using iron-on transfer paper and an image of Trixie that I manipulated in Photoshop. My dress with the Leah Goren cat print is from Anthropologie (old). The cat shoes? Well they’re just ridiculous (also old).

It was a really great time with some of our favorite people. And we stayed up soooo late. Trixie, on the other hand, isn’t a fan of guests so she stayed under the bed the whole time. She has enjoyed her new toys, though!

What do you think? Would you ever throw a party for your cat — or do you think we’re just nuts? haha
