Hello Kitty Birthday Party

My daughter's 6th birthday party was this past Saturday. After many discussions she decided on a Hello Kitty roller skating party. This was the first time we haven't had it at the house. It is way easier, but there is just something I really enjoy about planning the food, games, and decorations. I missed making some decorations, but that doesn't mean we didn't bring some with us.

We used some of the typical party supplies a Hello Kitty table cloth, napkins and plates. But we added a unique floral centerpiece, which I think turned out pretty cute if I say so myself. I borrowed roller skates from a friend and placed a mason jar in the skate then laced up the skate. I added the water to the jar and a simple grocery store bouquet of flowers. Tucked a extra party invite taped to a skewer into the bouquet. I would of picked up some cute laces for the skate but of course didn't think of that until I was putting it all together.

And of course the favor. My favorite part and can add to the budget quickly. So I try to pick up things on clearance here and there during the year.

Each guest received a Hello Kitty bag with candy, stickers, tattoos, lip gloss, back pack clip, and dipped pretzel rods (birthday must at our house) tied with a note thanking each guest for coming to the party. I found the pink bags at Micheal's, 3 for a buck. Ironed on fusible web onto white felt and cut out the Hello Kitty head shapes and ironed the kitty head to bag. I did melt a couple bags because my iron was too hot and I also placed a tea towel between the iron and the bag to make sure I didn't melt the bag to my iron. Cut out eyes and nose out of black and yellow felt and glued them on because they were so small. Added a purchased flowers, I found a Walmart for a "bow". Sewed her whiskers with black embroidery floss. The bags were complete in one afternoon nap time.

Our daughters birthdays are only a day apart, so watch for the next party.
