Nautical Love: More Beach Bashes and Seaside Parties

     When this blog was born three years ago, one of its inaugural posts was about nautical party themes. Despite the original page's photos being desperately out of date, the piece has remained one of our most popular. For the new year, for all you brides and pregnant mothers and graduates and cougars who need piscean-inspired parties, I give you these ideas.

I have a thing for place card holders. These silvery sailboats would be great for showers.

A similar option, these cruise ship luggage tags can double as place cards - great for destination weddings.

Nautical Luggage Tag Favors - $6.25


All of the fab nautical invitations I'm about to drop on you are from Click the pictures to shop. There are a couple that make me want to plan a Hawaiian destination wedding ... send your groom prospects to me, please. Meow!

In case your Christmas cards and holiday newsletters didn't quite make it to the mail...

Dearest Kittens,
     It's the eve of the Eve, and perhaps you find yourself in these last stretches of the holiday season feeling remiss for not sending your correspondence. Never fear, Kitty is here with some options for late winter and early spring.
     I am one to send valentines rather than holiday cards. It gives me a chance to write a personal note to everyone and it's a nice surprise for relatives and friends to get a gorgeously retouched photo of me * and the most angelic child ever born. What a way to chase away the winter drearies!

* In this coming year, let's all make a pact not to take or post any ugly pictures. If you can't use Photoshop or do some creative cropping, then don't post that picture of yourself looking glamkitty meow meow if your BFF has some weird double chin thing going on. Take one for the team, kittens, and practice kindness when playing with photos on the Facebooks.

If your girls had a Ni Hao, Kai-lan holiday, why not adapt this birthday card to say thank you for all the fun gifts?

I also love this one, ambiguously titled, "Winter Wishes." Use all of your holiday pictures in a collage. These go over well with grandparents and others who can't get enough of your little darlings (please, please let your little darlings be Pugs...).

Movie-Centric Holiday Ideas

     Whether you have movie fanatics on your list, or you just want to bring a touch of theatrical drama to your party this winter, I have inspirational ideas to carry you through the New Year.

     I wouldn't dare photograph the inner chaos ahem, sanctum that is my office, but I myself enjoy a life-size cutout of Luke Skywalker as I blog to you. Movie cut-outs are a must for film buffs. Why not have Santa bring one or two?

     Are you a Rotster in envy of our script supervisor's set chair while you spread out on the ground or in your car?

Meow & Purr, Kittens! Kitty's Back!

Dearest Kittens,
     It has been far too long and I've been missing you. For months I have not been able to access my Google accounts because they were tangled up with the Innerspace OMnimedia Mothership, and I'm in the process of streamlining my many channels.
     I've also been making an independent feature film, Chicago Rot. With the holidays in full swing, I come to your newsfeed with all sorts of fresh new ideas for making the season green, bright and downright fantastic. Please check back soon!
