Yes, we have finally come to the Hello Kitty party itself!ūüôādenna's ideas: Hello Kitty Party Ideas

I had been thinking for a long time that a Hello Kitty party would be fun, but here are the two things that made me feel really inspired to go ahead and go for it!!

My photos of the mug didn’t turn out so great, but really the mugs were my inspiration for the party. ¬†The girls have had them for years, and I am always seeing them! ¬†The mugs have Hello Kitty with ice cream cones and candy, and they are done in these pastel colors. ¬†So I decided that the colors for the party would be mint green, pastel pink and red, oh! and chocolate instead of black! ¬†And that it would be a Hello Kitty Sweet Shoppe kind of theme! ¬†Following are some easy how-tos for some of the Hello Kitty stuff we did for the party. ¬†Links to sources and how-to posts are in red letters, so just click on them!

(An Aside: ¬†my friend over at Paper Glitter did a Fab-U-Lous Hello Kitty Sweet Shoppe party for her daughter! It’s amazing! ¬†I decided to go with my mug-inspired homemade party this time, though. ¬†If my printer had been working, I would have printed some of Paper Glitters’ gorgeous Sweet Shoppe Party printouts¬†and this sweeeeet¬†stationary set! ¬†Linnette makes the most adorable things for parties! ¬†But my printer is on it’s last legsūüė¶ ¬†)

So mint and pink and red….and a little white cat! ¬†A package of pastel¬†card stock¬†from the dollar store made a quick and easy backdrop. ¬† Just tape the pages onto the wall with painter’s tape so they won’t stick forever! (We were able to print out one black and white kitty and my youngest colored it in. ¬†We found it on this site¬†of coloring pages).

The lighting in our house in the winter is just atrocious, and so all my photos look kinda strange…they look very brightly colored, but really are softer pastels, oh well, I guess you get the idea….denna's ideas: Hello Kitty Party Ideas, easy Hello Kitty party backdrop
