Hello Kitty Party

Violet turned 7 this year! What a fun age for a kid to be. Fortunately for me, this was one of the easiest themed parties I've ever pulled together, thanks to Violet choosing a theme that is super easy to find supplies for. Hello Kitty!

Hello Kitty Party

Hello Kitty merch is pretty much everywhere so it required very little creativity on my part. I always feel bad about Violet's birthday being in winter, so we can't throw the big outdoor parties like we do with Eisley & Paxton, nor can we go to Lakeside or something fun like that. We have to keep it indoors and warm.

Hello Kitty decor fits pretty well in my "sugar coated candy land of a house" {as my dad once called it--ha!} very cheery!

While my usual problem is finding party decor to match what my kids pick for birthday themes {Eisley with her tiger themed 5th birthday party, for example}, I had the opposite problem with Hello Kitty. We had to choose which of 5 different Hello Kitty paper plates to go with.

Then there was H Mart! We love H Mart already, but it was an especially fun resource for Hello Kitty party supplies, such as the Ramune Soda. Whatever that is. Here kids, I have no idea what this drink is made from, but it has Hello Kitty on it. Drink up! The novelty of these bottles is half the fun, as you open it by shoving a glass marble into it. Somehow it is not a choking hazard, however, because the marble stays trapped inside, much to the disappointment of the children.

I think this is the only crafting I did for this party, aside from the cake. Super easy Hello Kitty head lanterns.

More H Mart goods. H Mart is more than just a place to buy Korea's best selling instant ramen by the pallet and chicken feet.

They also have Hello Kitty cookies in Hello Kitty tins. If you haven't been to H Mart, do go. It's so much fun to shop there. I recommend stopping by the bakery for a waffle fish--filled with either melted chocolate or bean paste.

Need sea urchin for your Pioneer Woman casserole? H Mart.

Need all the Asian noodle types ever made? H Mart.

Need a 500 lb bag of rice? H Mart.

It's short for Heather Mart. I think.

I digress. Back to the party.

With our house decked out in the Hello Kitty decor, we ordered some friends and invited some pizza over.

The Ramune was a hit. No one could figure out the flavor. But who needs flavor when you have exciting glass marbles?

Per American tradition, we lit my cake creation on fire and sang a traditional folk song to Violet in recognition of her 7th birthday.

Violet blew out the candles and the children fought over all the candy on top.

But seriously, this was one of my favorite cakes {< click to see more} ever. It was so fun to throw together. Sometimes cakes turn out exactly as I envision, which is super exciting for a cake decorator. It happened with this one!

It was my pleasure to make a birthday cake for this seven year old sweetheart of mine! We love you, Violet! I can't believe you're already 7!!

Hello Kitty Party

It was a sleepover, so they all settled in with their sleeping bags to do what kids of the 2010s love to do most: cat video montages on YouTube.

Hello Kitty Party

It was probably the most simple themed kids birthday party I've thrown! But it was great and we had fun. And it's good to be scaling things back toward simplicity these days.

HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY, SWEET VIOLET!!!!


XOXO
