Our theme for our 2103 issue of clutch, the bride’s guide to have and to hold was “the day a little girl dreams about”, and our photo shoots all centered around this theme. Our Three Little Kittens shoot is just that. If you missed the first part of this shoot (the tea party!), be sure to click here to see.
Modern flower girls are cuter than ever with all of the dress and styling choices. Here we present our rendition of the Three Little Kittens showcasing hair, makeup and dress selections for today’s little girls.
Based on the popular children’s poem, our three little kittens love to laugh and play together, which sometimes gathers them into trouble. From an elegant tea party complete with pie to playing with yarn, these kittens had a fun day, which ended with washing their mittens and masquerading in a photo booth made just for them.
Lovely vintage mittens were worn by kittens whose tea party was nigh, from mason jars of milk to pitchers of tea, their festivities included fruit pie.
The celebration ensued, they ate their food, and then set out to play. With balls of yarn being tossed in the air, they laughed and frolicked all day.
The kittens were spoiled, but when their mittens were soiled, they then began to cry. Through bubbles and scrubbing and rub-a-dub-dubbing they were finally hung out to dry.
When mother found out, they gave such a pout, but the kittens told her the truth. They shouted with glee for she loved those three and rewarded them with a kitty photo booth.
Here is the traditional Three Little Kittens poem along with our vendor credits. Enjoy!
Three little kittens, they lost their mittens, and they began to cry, “Oh mother dear, we sadly fear that we have lost our mittens.” “What! Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens! Then you shall have no pie.” “Meow, meow, meow.” “Now you shall have no pie.”
The three little kittens, they found their mittens, and they began to cry, “Oh mother dear, see here, see here, for we have found our mittens.” “Put on your mittens, you silly kittens, and you shall have some pie.” “Purr, purr, purr, oh let us have some pie.”
The three little kittens put on their mittens, and soon ate up the pie, “Oh mother dear, we greatly fear that we have soiled our mittens.” “What! Soiled your mittens, you naughty kittens!” They began to sigh, “Meow, meow, meow”. Then they began to sigh.
The three little kittens, they washed their mittens, and hung them out to dry, “Oh mother dear, do you not hear, that we have washed our mittens?” “What, washed your mittens, you are good kittens, but I smell a rat close by.” “Meow, meow, meow, we smell a rat close by.” ~Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme
