Skabenga’s birthday party

Today we went to a cat's birthday party! Skabenga is the resident cat at the Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga and they had a birthday party for him which was absolutely divine! I love attention to detail and they had it all....from the balloons at the entrance to the magnificent cake. Here are a few pics: 20121004-201209.jpg 20121004-201249.jpg His personalized balloons in the red and white colours of The Oyster Box, and my son Kai with a toffee apple. 20121004-201434.jpg 20121004-201456.jpg A kid's dream selection of cakes and goodies, the bright green is a macaroon filled with icing and jelly tots - it was delicious! There were lots of children of various ages here to celebrate with Skabenga...they all gathered round the piano to sing to him. Sorry I didn't get a good pic of him checking out his cake! 20121004-201939.jpg 20121004-202113.jpg 20121004-202223.jpg Here is my Mom with Kai and a pic of some of the things that Kai was given in his party pack...Skabenga's book, some stickers with some awesome pics of him in various parts of the hotel, I just love the tea bags that you can hook on your cup! It was all presented in a cool bag with a juice bottle and beach ball....and the moms were also spoilt with a mini bath hamper from L'Occitane;) 20121004-202827.jpg This pic of Skabenga and I is from the other day when I spotted him sleeping in the foyer, such a sweet kitty! 20121004-202956.jpg Happy birthday Skabenga, I hope to join you for tea next year too!
