Princess Kate's Dress Inspires Wedding Dress Favors

     I loved Princess Kate's dress. So beautiful, so English, so Alexander McQueen (rest his soul). With June weddings right around the corner, it's time to think of bridesmaids and shower favors and little presents tied up with ribbons. Inspired by Kate's gown this morning, here are some wedding dress favors I adore.



Tiny wedding gown candles.

Giant Props










     I'm starting to think about premiere parties and movie shindigs (did you hear your Kitty recently became a film producer?!?). The other day I stumbled upon this website selling giant things. About 20 years ago, Muffy and I were shopping in Soho and found a store called, "Think Big." They sold items like these, but their presentation was more like a gallery. I think this is great; greatbigstuff.com has everything from huge pieces of sushi to enormous guitar pics. Perfect party favors and/or decorations.

Chicago Rot Feature Film



Hello Hip Cats and Kittens,
     In the event you've been wondering why your Kitty hasn't been posting about parties so much lately, it's because I am planning the biggest event of my life. About a year ago, I got the opportunity to realize one of my fondest dreams: to make a movie. Today, the crew of Chicago Rot dropped the teaser trailer. Imagine me cutting a big, red bow and taking a bow. Please watch the trailer below, but be warned it is very gory. This is a dark film with a lot of heart, sure to become a hit with the goth set, science fiction fans, rockers, and those who love the city of Chicago.
     The link will lead you to Kickstarter, a forum for independent artists. If you want to get on board with this project, please peruse the offerings and incentives. And watch this space for further details on how to throw a wrap party, or a premiere. It's going to be one hellacious shindig after another this summer. Thank you for your support, and for reading Kitty.

Real Soda in Glass Bottles Great for Parties




     Your Kitty recently discovered Real Soda, a brand which distributes vintage and microbrewed sodas like Frosty, Cheerwine, and my personal favorite, Rat Bastard Root Beer. With over 1400 flavors, there is surely something that will bring the extra pop to your party! These are currently sourced by Real Soda Midwest,  and may be found this spring at your local Ace Hardware or Do It Best center.
     Real Soda is only available in glass bottles, which is why Kitty loves it so much. As you kittens know, we are very dark on plastic. If a beverage stored in a plastic bottle becomes heated over 78 degrees (certainly probable in a warm car or outside on a hot day), plastic begins to leach into the drink. This not only adulterates the taste, but floods your body with icky chems you don't want to ingest!



Several funny flavors and energy drinks are available.
