It’s been a few months since my toddler daughter celebrated her birthday. At that time, she really loved Hello Kitty so we decided to have it as the theme. Actually, her Halloween costume last year was Hello Kitty. I even made her a Mad Hatter Hello Kitty Hat.
I really enjoy making DIY parties. I shared a couple of them in previous posts, an owl-themed birthday and a hot wheels themed birthday.
I thought I’d share some of the inspiration and ideas we used to make this party just “purrrrrfect!”
Let’s start with the decor!
I made several paper accordion flowers from gift wrapping paper. Thankfully , I had some leftover from her previous birthday.They are so adorable and simple to make. For the center, I used Hello Kitty cup cake toppers . I also fashioned a few pink crepe paper pompoms. I think they add a bit of pretty to the ambiance, don’t you think so?
I also made Hello Kitty banners but I wasn’t able to take good pictures of that. But I’ll include it in the DIY resource list below, in case you’re planning a Hello Kitty party too!
Being a slightly frugal mommy, I chose to use what was available. Since my daughter loved Hello Kitty so much, I used some of her stuff toys and cups to make the dessert table pop.
For the food, we had spaghetti, chicken, ice cream and hotdogs! We got creative ( or should I say retro) with the hotdogs! Who remembers having this as a table centerpiece? I do! This is so 80s! Looking at it makes me nostalgic.
On to the cake! This fun pink Hello Kitty cake was made by our favorite Wednesday’s Bakery. I am a big fan of chocolate and so is everybody in our family.
It was a simple yet fun-filled party with our family and close friends. It’s wonderful to see our little one enjoy with her friends. I think I’ll never go tired making DIY parties like this. I wonder what next year’s theme would be? She’s into Sophia the first these days. We’ll see.

Yes everybody appreciated the work and cuteness! Yes, happy to share!
I love DIY Parties and have been encouraging people to do so by opening a party supplies shop and a DIY party needs rental here in Bacolod.
Hello Kitty themed parties are one of my favorites due to the availability of HK candies and treats. Looking forward to your next year’s theme.
this is really cute and I imagine the fun of preparing the theme of this party.. love doing DIY crafts so this is absolutely a great idea.. unfortunately, my brother is already a grown up so he will no longer appreciate such themed party but I am excited to try this one for my niece haha
Super creative, I’m also planning to have one since my daughter’s birthday is approaching, this is a great help.
DIY parties are always the best! I love making the decor. What’s great about it is kids appreciate the effort! I just did a Minecraft set up for my son and he doesn’t want to ever take it down!
