Cleo's 2nd Birthday BBQ

Before getting too far into this post I would like to give a disclaimer:  I am not some wacko cat lady!!  I don't want you thinking that I dress my cat up on Sunday afternoons and make her have tea with me or anything crazy like that.  I love my kitty, but I'm not that far over the edge...

Cleo turns 2 on June 30, and I thought it would be fun to have a little party for her.  It really was more just an excuse to have some friends over for a bbq.  But I love having themed parties, so I decided to celebrate her birthday.

The colors I picked for the party were green and brown.  I played off the fact that her fur is brown and her eyes are green.  I had fun making yarn balls that I hung over the table.  They're really fun to make; all you do is soak yarn in glue mixed with water, and wrap it around a balloon.  Once the yarn is dry (takes a few days) pop the balloon and voila!!

I also made a flower arrangement out of dollar store flowers and a dead choke cherry bush from my back yard.

Then when we were at Costco picking up some supplies, I found these beautiful green and white flowers.

Since the colors were green and brown, I decided that all the food had to be green and brown, too.  I also made little name tags for the food so everyone knew what they were eating. 

At the end of the night Cleo even got a birthday kiss from a special friend...
