Three Years Old. More then that even because it has already been past her birthday for over a month, even though it only seems like that was last week and her second birthday was a couple months ago…. I really do have to keep reminding myself, I have a Three. Year. Old! This year we decided to celebrate with a Kitty Cat Black and White Themed Birthday Party, keep it simpler and have so much fun!

Ever since her second birthday and I went from “I am not going to plan anything big,” to “Ok, so I really want to plan a unicorn party, but it will still be low key,” to “Since I am going to be having an awesome theme, why would I not go all out?”

Sophie’s Second Birthday Unicorn Party came and yes, I went all out. It was so fun and I realized then how much I love planning parties. Imaging the theme and seeing it come to life is so rewarding to me. Not to mention the look on the guest of honor’s face when they are surprised with the set up just for them.

Throughout the year I saw Sophie’s love for kitty cat’s bloom and I just knew that it was going to be the cutest theme for her next birthday party.

So yes, I know it might be a little over the top for a three year old, but you know what, everyone had an awesome time and that is what matters to me most!

Black and White Themed Birthday Party Decor Ideas & Photos

Keeping with to theme and being very minimalistic with the design was so key in pulling off our overall look. I had a number of people say I out did myself, but the thing was, it was really one of the simplest parties I have planned. The invitations were the first item to be designed and I had the opportunity to work with the Tiny Prints team to take one of their black and white invitation designs and tweak it a bit to make it our own. The polka dot invitation liners introduced some pattern to the black and white theme and we were able to play off that for the rest of the party.

The backdrop was made of black poster board that I cut and hot glue gunned onto twine. I created the shapes one and then traced the original shape to make many more duplicates. Believe it or not this was one of the most time consuming tasks for the party but it was well worth it as it pulled the entire table together.

Let’s start with that cake! My mom is a retired cake decorator and when I asked her about making a kitty cat cake she was up for the challenge (I don’t actually think it was a challenge for her). This cake was three layer with alternating vanilla and chocolate layers, so not only was it ridiculously cute it was also deliciously tasty. Next to the cake were the perfectly designed cookie pops, put together by my friend, The Cake Mama (DIY Cookie Pops Post by The Cake Mama).

The cookie pops stood tall in the black rectangular boxes, that you might be surprised are actually those green foam boards for flower arrangements. I picked these up from my local dollar store, spray painted them black and then hot glue gunned the polka dot ribbon.

I hope you didn’t think I forgot to mention these incredible treats that lined the front row. Two of my go to party snacks; popcorn and marshmallows. I think every party I have hosted in the part year I have included some of Marsh & Mallow’s delicious custom mallows (Check out the gold ones she did for our Summer Soiree). When I told Carly, founder of Marsh and Mallow, what the theme of our party was I gave her full reign to create something she felt would work. I was beyond impressed with the black and white custom mallows. The white sprinkles on top went perfectly with the polka dot highlights.

Popcorn is not only one of my favorite snacks but my kids love it too! I have found that it makes the perfect party snack as well for kids and adults. This mix is made to match and contains white chocolate and oreo cookies, now that might sound strange but don’t judge it ’til you try it. The Popcorn Bar can pretty much whip up any magical creation to go alongside your party theme.

I created cat faced plates to bring together the theme on the table. With one pipe cleaner for each side of whiskers and black construction paper for the ears these plates were so easy to put together. Fold the whiskers equally into thirds and then snip the folds. With a hot glue gun attach the ears and the whiskers to the back of the plate.

My partyware was picked up from a local party shop, Heather and Gem. Topped off with these ever so popular party noise makers from Fun Fiestas by Ili and the table arrangement was simple and sweet.

My last DIY for the black and white themed birthday party was these Kitty Cat ears. The kids loved them (well most of the kids). I walk through a step by step of how I put these together in my “How to Make Kitty Cat Ears” Blog Post. I was so happy with how this idea turned out, it ended up being a favorite addition to the party.

A favorite place to hang out in the room was the “Kitty Corner”. It also ended up being a great place to bring all the kids together and capture their sugar covered faces and adorable coordinating black and white attire.

Great Idea for Cat Themed Birthday Party. Add a Kitty Corner to the room to sit and relax. Black White and Gold Themed Party DecorFamily celebrating their daughter's birthday Kitty Cat Themed

We had a blast celebrating and we can not wait for the next styled event, or at least I can’t. I think the boys can do without them, hehe! To see more photos from this party head to the feature on 100 Layer Cakelet.

  • A few months ago when I got my wisdom teeth removed it put me in a work out rut. I felt super unmotivated and just blah. Really, mostly just felt sorry for myself. Sounds silly, maybe. But I was thinking about it recently and how that’s kind of continued to linger to the last couple months. I weighed myself the other day (we don’t own a scale so I don’t weigh myself often) and that was a bit of a kick in the butt, I realized that yes I wasn’t feeling good about myself, yes I’ve gained a decent amount of weight, and yes that aligns with the less positive thinking, less motivation and large lacking of exercise.

I feel funny writing this out but I think it’s important to talk about. I shared the times I’ve felt motivation, excited and energized to get to the gym, attend a workout or yoga class, but I also want to share that things happen.

We can have good days, good months, even good years but then something might happen that changes the course of our daily routine.

I don’t think I’ve failed, I’ve just lost track of the healthier lifestyle that was making me feel noticeably better. So here I am writing things out, to hopefully connect with you all on a level of understanding.

Maybe you are feeling the blah. Uninspired, low energy and making excuses for yourself. Here’s my little motivation to say, nothing changes unless you do. If you want change BE THE CHANGE.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself on repeat this week, in hopes to snap out of it.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?
.
I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
