I actually saw this when I googled for some inspiration and loved the simplicity of the design. I didn't want the text to compete with the image so I modified it by placing it on the back.
Paper pompoms & streamers, simple yet spruces up a room with color. I used tulle to hang them. These are so easy to make and cheaper to DIY. If you can fold paper you can make these.
We had a number of people coming so I decided to make a cake for the adults while the kids could enjoy some cupcake cones. I also made some HK cake pops. I wished they turned out less lumpy and more smooth. H was happy, so that's all that mattered. A friend at the party gave me a tip to add oil to the chocolate next time. Did you ever make cake pops?
The best thing about Hello Kitty you can pretty much find it anywhere. I found cute pails at Target for the girls and solid color pails for the boys. I had fun designing personalized thank you tags and candy wrappers.
We had face painting or I should say hand painting since everyone wanted it on their hands.
I made up a HK Bingo game and used 3/4" round labels to mark the spaces.
And of course you can't have a party without a pinata. I just used a cardboard box and tissue paper to make one. Amazing how fast kids can clean up that pile of goodies. If only that would work the same with cleaning up the toys.
Yes it took alot of time and planning but I had tons of fun. To have H come up to me at the end of the day and say "Thank you Mommy! (gives me a big hug and kiss) Thank you so much for the party!" Now that's the best feeling! So what's next on my agenda? I've got my lil guy's birthday party in less than 2 weeks. Can you say busy?
Guess what his theme will be?
Do you enjoy planning parties as much as I do? Or does the thought scare you?
