Hello Kitty will be invading our house this month, as my daughter is turning four. Not wanting to spend gobs of money or have everything be matchy-matchy, I’m trying to piece together some ideas from different sites.
I’ve seen some really cute ideas for a surprise the morning of her birthday. Streamers on doors, balloon-filled rooms, I can’t wait to see her face:)
|1, 2, 3|
My sister-in-law made this wreath (tutorial from “Our Best Bites”) for Boo’s first birthday.
According to her, it was super easy, and the best part? It lasts from year to year.
This year, I thought I’d add this one too, (on a different door…) because, damn, it looks easy too.
Again, with the decorations, I don’t want to go too matchy with Hello Kitty, so I think these balloons are a good fit.
Perfectly girly to go with the theme.
Plus, they have that quality of “how did you do that??” without being too hard to pull off.
Ever since I saw these billowing streamers, I knew I had to try them out.
The blogger said she used $1 plastic tablecloths. Awesome effect!
In fact, I want to get as many supplies as I can from the dollar store.
Wouldn’t it be great to make these eye-catching dessert stands out of the tableware section?
I plan to do an ice cream cake for the crowd, and a small, more decorative Hello Kitty cake. The latter would look fantastic on one of these stands.
And these cute tassels… love the colors. Tutorial looks simple enough.
And last, my plan for the “kids only” party is to paint with condensed milk. Supposedly, it dries shiny?
However, I am worried that any kind of milk & 80 degree weather do not mix.
Thinking about a bunch of cans of whip cream and maybe a kiddy pool?
Or does that sound too much like a frat party?
You may be wondering what part of the parties will be Hello Kitty. The invitations, as well as all the tableware (plates, napkins, etc.). And we’ll probably throw a bunch of her Hello Kitty toys into the tablescape design. Did I just use the word “tablescape”? Faaancy.
Oh, and one last thing. Found this list while poking around on Pinterest. I’m printing it up & thought you all might be interested too:)
