The adorable cat, Hello Kitty
If you ask little girls who their favorite kitty cartoon character is, some will answer Garfield, Heathcliff, Sylvester or Felix, but many will enthusiastically say Hello Kitty is the best of them all! Who wouldn’t like this cute feline character? She’s sweet, adorable and together with her friends, can bring joy and excitement to any little girl’s day. Even older girls find this character endearing.

Since Hello Kitty is loved by young girls, her theme for happy celebrations is a great idea. If you have a young daughter who’s having her birthday very soon, why not use a Hello Kitty theme for it? It’s not very hard to prepare, but you’ll be sure everyone will have a good time. Even if she invites boys, they won’t mind the theme.

Here are some fun ideas to make a Hello Kitty party successful and enjoyable.

Hello Invitations

Many parents settle for ready-made Hello Kitty invitations, especially if they don’t have a lot of time on their hands. These invites can be bought from party supply stores and in different styles and designs. Usually, they have cute images of Hello Kitty and her friends printed all over them.

If you want to exert a little extra effort for the invites, you can also make your own Hello Kitty design. If you’re good at drawing, one idea you can try is make a Kitty Face invite. Draw Hello Kitty’s face on cardboard paper using colored materials, then print the party details inside.

If you’re artistically-challenged and drawing Hello Kitty’s face is a bit too much, you can just cutout large bows from red cardboard paper, then print the details on them.

Another cute idea is to send actual Hello Kitty dolls or figurines to the guests. Attach a pink tag to the doll with the party details on it. This can also serve as your party giveaway.

Hello Kitty Decor

To make the guests feel the fun party atmosphere better, you should decorate the venue in Hello Kitty style. Some settle for simple balloons and streamers and partyware with Hello Kitty designs on them, but there are other fun ways to decorate the party better.

  • hello kitty pattern

    Find pictures and posters of Hello Kitty, her family and friends, and set them around the venue.
  • The best motif is pink, white and bright green. If you’re getting streamers, balloons and confetti, choose these colors.
  • Decorate the venue tea party style. Set up small tables covered with pink and white tablecloths. Then, put flower vases in the middle.
  • Find Hello Kitty printed table cloths or other Sanrio characters like Kerokeroppi or Bad Batz Maru. If you don’t have enough budget to buy your own, you can use plain pink and white cloths.
  • Scatter pink sequins or small candies all over the tables. Glitter is also nice, but make sure it doesn’t get mixed in the food.
  • Print out Hello Kitty sheets or tear them out from coloring books. Ask your daughter to color them, and then put them around the place.
  • hello kitty balloon

    Put Hello Kitty banners and posters all over the place.
  • Get a large appliance box and paint it over like a house. You can also cut out windows and doors. The kids can pretend it’s Hello Kitty’s house.
  • Make a Kitty mural. Cover one wall with butcher paper, and give the kids coloring materials like pens, crayons and markers. Let them create their own Sanrio world with Hello Kitty and all her friends.

Dressing Up As Hello Kitty

Children look more adorable when they’re dressed up, especially with this type of kiddie theme. For the birthday celebrant, you can dress her up in a cute pink dress or jumper and a Hello Kitty headpiece. If you can’t find a headpiece, just pin a large bow on one side of her head. You can also make white kitty ears for her.

You can have different kinds of party games and activities like:

  • Friendship Bracelet-Making – Because girls like to wear jewelry and have fun with friends, this is one activity they’ll enjoy. Give them bowls of beads, some string and scissors and let them make their own bracelet. Then ask them to exchange bracelets as a sign of friendship. Just keep an eye on them while they’re handling the scissors. You should also make sure no child puts the beads in her mouth, ears or nose.
  • Decorate-A-Ribbon – Hello Kitty always wear a cute ribbon over her ear. Get plain headbands, some white ribbon and fabric markers. Give each kid a ribbon and let them decorate it. When they’re done with the design, help them tie it in a bow, then hot glue it to the headband. The kids can wear them throughout the party.
  • Mory’s Bean Bag Toss – This game is inspired by Mory, a mole that lives in Hello Kitty’s garden. First you need a green box. Cut three large holes in it. Then, get three brown bean bags. Let the kids take turns trying to get the bean bags in the holes.
  • twin game

    Find My Twin – Do you know Hello Kitty has a twin sister named Mimmy? This game lets kids try to find their own twin. First, make sure that the number of guests is even, so no one will be left out. Then, draw pictures of different animals. Each animal should have two pictures. Put all the pictures in a hat, and let every kid draw one. Explain to them that everyone needs to act and sound like the animal they picked out to find their twin. No conversation allowed. As soon as they find their twin, they have to sit down. The pair who sits down first wins the prize.
  • Hello Kitty Cartoon Fest - Rent or record Hello KItty cartoons and let the kids watch them while they’re resting.
