Hello Kitty Rainbow Party

Hello Kitty has recently become a worldwide, multi-billion dollar phenomenon, with that cute little fuzzy face seen everywhere and on everything, but did you know her first appearance was over forty years ago? It’s true. She first showed up on a purse in Japan all the way back in 1974! And now she has her own plane.  Literally.

Hello Kitty Airplane

Actually, she has her own airlineNot too shabby for a cartoon cat.  You don’t see Garfield’s face on a fleet of 747s.

In addition to her skills in aviation, she’s also incredibly popular with little girls, and she’s a top birthday theme year after year. So here at BirthdayExpress, we have a brand new theme called Hello Kitty Rainbow, and it’s pretty fitting.

Hello Kitty and rainbows are a perfect combination.

All of the items from these themes can be mixed and matched to create the perfect look for your little one’s big day!

Can’t have a party without a beautiful table, decorated with the theme of the day.

Hello Kitty Tablecover

Start off your table decor with a colorful tablecover, then add plates, cups and napkins.  You can get everything you need in our Express Value Pack.

For a clever way to set the table check out this cute cutlery pouch:

Fold a napkin into thirds, as shown. We used white scrapbook paper, cut to fit slightly larger than the folded napkin. The whiskers are cut from black placemats and the eyes and nose are drawn on with marker. We taped to the abstract kitty to the placemat with washi tape, then inserted a fork and spoon. Adorable.
To make the party drinkware do double duty as party favor, consider using these supercute Hello Kitty Rainbow water bottles.

For this adorable Hello Kitty Paper Lantern, start with a simple white paper lantern.  Cut whiskers, eyes, ears, a nose and a bow out of scrapbook or construction paper, and glue them to the paper lantern to create the perfect kitty face. To create the same overall look that we did, add in some colored paper lanterns  and fluffy decorations (these ones are rainbow colored!).

Get our Hello Kitty cupcake kit, which comes with these pink polka dot wrappers. For the little pink bows, we used fondant sheets from a local craft store, cut into shapes with a cookie cutter.

These berry and cookie concoctions are made by starting out with a chocolate chip cookie as a base, then pull apart some Milano cookies, and “glue” them around the base using dabs of chocolate frosting. For extra support, and to get a special look, wrap a ribbon around the cylinder and secure with tape. Then just fill with sliced berries or whatever you desire.
