Kitten Birthday Party


Cheeks had her 5th birthday celebration this week!! (I do NOT know how on earth my baby is 5 already... but it happened)

Her and her friends LOOOOVE to play kittens together, so she HAD to have a kitten themed birthday party! And I did it on the cheap! So if you want to get some animal inspired birthday party ideas - here you go!


The majority of the party budget was spent on Beanie Boos. I was going to make cats... but I really didn't feel like making 7 cats was a good use of my time, and especially not when I found beanie boos at Chapters for 5.06 each (yay for getting an email with a weekend coupon code!)

7 Beanie Boos =  $35.42

TOTALLY worth the money too have a fun take home gift (I HATE doing goody bags... mostly because I end up throwing most of the dollar store stuff out when my kids get them)


Next up I found headbands on EBAY (I got them for about 1$ each) Here is a link to them, there are many sellers who have them as you can see 

7 headbands: $7


The craft was a make and decorate your own collar - I made these with a simple tag shape and ribbon using vinyl and fabric.  

Ribbon cost : $2 - everything else was scraps



The kids had a blast decorating with little self adhesive dots.  Dots cost: $2 at Walmart


For the cake I used 2 boxes of cake mix and a container of icing 

Cake mix + icing = $4

The ears and nose I made using scraps of felt and candles were ones we bought previous years. 


Total cost = $50.42

or $54.42 if you include the $ on buying the Kitty Garland banner embroidery file... but that has other uses and will be used to make banners I can sell at markets too.






Me: "Show me your I'm 5 now face!" and this is the face she gives me!


The dress she is wearing is the Buby&Me Darcy dress, which I tested and you can read all about in THIS blog post. The fabric is fabric I designed for True North Fabrics. I'm not including the dress in the party budget - since she needed some new school appropriate dresses anyways.



She really does love her new dress though!


I hope you enjoyed reading about the birthday party - I know it is a little out of my normal posting, but hopefully it helps give some ideas! 

I'd love to hear some comments below! What do you love about the kitten part theme?

Bring on FIVE! 

Happy Crafting!

That is such an adorable idea for a themed party! I would've loved a party like this when I was little, too! Pinning! :) Lisa
