Hello Kitty Extravaganza

by Amber Stiles on February 28, 2012

WOW, what a whirlwind of a week.  I meant to post a recap of Alexa’s birthday party a few days after the event but by now everyone knows we had another major event just a few days later.  Ok, now back to business!

Hello Kitty Birthday Invitation

Alexa had a Hello Kitty Birthday Bash and it was amazing!  We invited people near and far to come and celebrate our little one’s third full year of life.  The party was perfection and we couldn’t have done it without the help of our devoted friends and family.

Dessert Display

Once again the party was held at Peter’s childhood home.  His mother and sister went out of their way to help us set this up.  This year we were planning on holding the party in our own home, but as we compiled the guest list we knew everyone just wouldn’t fit.  We’re lucky to have so many people close to us that want to join in on our celebrations…but our house wouldn’t hold them all!  Also, with my eventual pregnancy issues and bed-rest status…it was necessary to hold the festivities elsewhere.

Hello Kitty Cookie Favors

This year I also enlisted the help of a good friend to make our Hello Kitty face cookie favors and Hello Kitty cake.  Nicole runs a little baking business, The Itty Bitty Baker, and I knew she was the one to call on to help with the desserts.  She delivered FIFTY cookies that were not only crazy cute to look at, but also absolutely delicious.  Her cake was adorable and big enough to feed our large party.  It was also PINK on the inside…OMG so cute!  People couldn’t stop raving about everything.

As always a good portion of the charm of the theme came from Etsy sellers.

Hello Kitty Headbands

The party was made even more awesome due to the fact that most of our friends have kids in the same age range as Alexa.  This year it was all about them.  We had games, puzzles, coloring, and awesome favor buckets filled to the brim with Hello Kitty and other super cute Japanese candies and trinkets.  One of the crowd favorites was the Hello Kitty headbands I asked Theresa to make.  She did an amazing job crafting up the little ears and bows for everyone to wear.

The party was just fantastic and we couldn’t be happier that Alexa was able to celebrate with her friends in style.  This was the last birthday party for our little girl as an only child and we wanted it to be super special and pretty much perfect.  We think it was both of those things and so much more.  Thank you to everyone on came out to join in on the fun.  We hope you enjoyed yourselves because we sure did!

Thanks. Alexa had a blast. I hope she remembers this one!
The headbands are super easy to make. Just felt, a plastic headband, and hot glue :-)

Right???? I’m so so glad Alexa kept wanting this theme. She asked for it in the summer, and I was convinced she would change her mind.
