Cat Party

Last fall I decided to try an experiment to bring in more people to work on projects for Oh Happy Day with me. I was hoping that if I combined the skills of different people (photographers, graphic designers, crafters, stylists) we would get results that were much higher quality than if I did them on my own. It has been a steep learning curve to figure everything out and we are still learning and tweaking our process as we go but I am really happy with the wonderful people I get to work with. All these projects are a labor of love and huge team effort to do the best we can. Yesterday we had a little going away party for Harper, our intern. She loooooves cats and so we surprised her with a cat party. We printed out pictures of cats from the internet on cardstock, added dowels and decorated the table and taped them to the backs of chairs. It was silly and fun and really easy to do. (I tried to convince them to find a box of kittens to bring in for the party but I got shutdown.) We will miss you Harper! I am so grateful for these awesome people who make my job easier and more fun! Meow!

    On FourSquare, my apartment is called Cat Party, and every cocktail party we have is a cat party. My cat Ada likes to be the center of attention. Now I want to make her some paper friends (she’ll appreciate that they’re not real and competing for my attention).

    I’m not usually a cat person, but those cat props are the best!

    Love this!! I’m a huge cat fan – unfortunately my beloved kitty passed away in December and he was my best bud for 14 years. I still cry because I miss him so much. Have a great weekend!! 😉

    Heehee! So cute! Cat party! And I am such a big fan of the collection of contributors you have rounded up, but it all falls within your modern and not too fussy aesthetic!

    I’ve got a few nuts-about-cats friends who I ‘m going to have to share this post with!

    That’s pretty cool! Did you use any pictures of Grumpy Cat, or any lolcats?
