Calling all cat lovers! This one’s for you. 🐈
These playful Kitty Cat Party Ideas are part of a project I designed for Fisher-Price, and it’s seriously one of my all-time favorites. I just love the modern simplicity of it all… especially the CAKE! 💛
Everything here is super easy to recreate – without skimping on style. 🙌 (Isn’t that the best kind of combo?!) If you’re planning a kitty cat birthday party yourself, get ready to look like a crafty genius. 😉✂️💪👏

1. Kitty Cat Party Plates
Turn simple round plates into super cute kitties with a little craft felt! The secret is using STIFF felt though (not the floppy-doppy kind).
2. Kitty Cat Birthday Cake
This party-hat-wearing-cat cake makes me so happy! See the full cake tutorial here. 😻 All of the decorations (aside from the pink “collar”) are made from paper. No fondant skills required. 🙌
P.S. Wanna make this cake even easier on yourself? Order plain white cakes from your grocery store bakery (10″ and 8″ rounds), and stack ’em. OR have the bakery make the entire cake, and just add the topper yourself. ✅ 🎉
3. Cheese and Cracker Mice
My kids (and myself!) have LOVED the triangle-shaped Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges for years. Little did I know they’d come in handy as “mice” one day. 😂
Seriously, though – they make a great foundation for the cutest little mice, don’t you think? Raisin bits (eyes & nose), sliced almonds (ears), and dry chow mein noodles (tails) complete the look. Triangle pita crackers make them super easy to pick up.
4. Cat Ear Headbands
Everyone at the party (grown-ups, too!) will look super cute in a pair of these easy-to-DIY cat ear headbands. You can free-hand cut the ears or use my printable cat ear template as a guide.
5. A Game of Cat and Mouse
This Mouse Hunt activity is basically a good ol’ fashioned Easter egg hunt, but with eggs that look like cute little mice! (All you need is a sharpie pen to draw the faces on + some yarn “tails”.) I designed some printable bag tags to make gathering them extra cute too. 😉
6. Printable Birthday Cat Banner
Who doesn’t love a cat in a party hat?! These printable “birthday cats” look so fun strung into a banner. 😻 Add little craft poms at the top of each hat for extra cuteness.
P.S. I think these would make darling gift tags/embellishments, too!
