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.
Actually, she has her own airline. Not 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!

Hello Kitty Rainbow Tableware & Favors
Can’t have a party without a beautiful table, decorated with the theme of the day.
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.
And speaking of party favors, check out these options, just a small selection of what we have available for your party guests!
As a transition from favors and tableware to decorations, check out this table decor kit.
This kit includes a large fringed centerpiece, two smaller centerpieces and 20 pieces of Hello Kitty confetti.
Hello Kitty Rainbow Decorations
BirthdayExpress has a great selection of fantastic Hello Kitty Decorations, from swirly ceiling decorations to Happy Birthday banners. But if you’d like to take a more DIY approach to your decor, we’ve got you covered there, too.
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!).
To combine a decoration with a beloved party activity, get this Hello Kitty Pinata!
Can’t have a party without balloons! Above you can see pieces from our Hello Kitty Balloon bouquet. Below, you can see our Hello Kitty shaped foil balloon. Either, or both, would make a great addition to your little one’s birthday party decorations.
And if your little one likes balloons, she’s sure to love this!
This right here is our life size, 4 feet tall Hello Kitty Airwalker balloon! And just like our little party girls, your daughter will be dancing with joy!
Hello Kitty Rainbow Food Ideas
For a smorgasbord of tasty treats, try these recipes that will have all the kitties at the party purring!
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.
Hello Kitty cookies are practically everywhere now, from boutique bakeries to your local grocery store. And if you’d rather not go with store-bought, there are all sorts of recipes out there to help you make your own–with help from the birthday girl if you’d like!
If you’re looking for an over-the-top, crazy amazing cake idea that will really bring the wow factor to your daughter’s party, allow us to close with a gallery of some the most amaza-crazy Hello Kitty cakes the internet has ever seen!
