jettie’s kitty cat birthday luncheon

kitty cat party birthday(Invitation can be found at the PPJ Shop!)

Sweet and simple was my mindset going into Jettie’s 3rd birthday celebration this year.  After considering a few concepts the one that kept coming back to me was a kitty cat theme.  My girl is an animal lover, especially when it comes to cats, so I was fairly certain she would be all about it.  This was also her first all girl party which kept the guest list small and perfect for a luncheon.  As always I am never quite sure how the visions in my head will play out in reality – seems like there is always something to add or tweak.  But this time around I have a 3 year old who still talks about her special day.  I’d say that makes it a success.

    I love her polka dot kitten dress. I am planning my daughters 3rd birthday party. She loves cats! Where is the dress from?

      Thanks so much Nicole! Her dress is from H&M (last season) and we loved it too! Cats are still really in for fashion and I know has some more for fall! Hope she has a fabulous party! xo, brandy j

      Hello! I actually purchased them at the dollar spot in Target around Easter time (I am pretty sure they are bunnies but looked like kitties to me!) 😉
