Since the fictional feline was born in the ’70s, it has charmed its way to the hearts of little girls until today’s generation. Even if you’ve never seen the cartoon show, you or someone you know has probably been enamored by the cuteness of Hello Kitty.

Invitations

All the fun with the theme starts with an invitation you send to your guests. Create Hello Kitty-themed invitations to build the excitement before your big date!

You can DIY the invitations by printing Hello Kitty images and pasting them on cardstock that will serve as your invitation. Write out or print out event details on the back. If you can hand-deliver them, tie them up with red or pink ribbons around each envelope. Don’t hesitate to decorate it with glitter glue, sequins, and other decorative items!

But if you want the easy route, you can simply buy invitations or cards online and simply write out your party information on the blanks! Here are some invitations you can use:

Decorations

Hello Kitty is a cute, whimsical character, so your party décor should reflect that. Start by using the classic Hello Kitty colors: pink, white, reds, black, and light pastels like yellows, blues, and purples. Of course, metallic accents like gold, rose gold, and silver won’t hurt if you like to modernize it or make it fit for a party for a grown-up.

1. Hello Kitty party decorations

You can buy party decoration sets that come with banners, balloons, tablecloths, and other decorative items. Use balloons and streamers in these colors to fit your theme. Here are some decorative items that you can buy for the party:

2. Tablescape

Let your plates double as decorations for your party. Here are some plates and sets you can buy online:

3. Flowers

Flowers make great centerpieces for table decorations. Put together bouquets of pink and white flowers, and accent the vase with ribbons.

4. Hello Kitty toys

You can use a Hello Kitty toy as a focal point on your dessert table and tie a bouquet of balloons to it. The celebrant probably owns a few Hello Kitty toys already so that you can use them as decorations.

You can put the Sanrio friends on an elevated tray, a standard plush doll on top of the dessert table, or small plushies inside decorative apothecary jars as decorations.

5. Photo Backdrop

Inflate a Hello Kitty air walker balloon for a fun photo op, and make sure to have a nice background that corresponds to the theme. You may want to use foil curtainspre-made Hello Kitty backdrops, balloon arch or garlands, or polka-dotted pink fabric

Food and Drinks

This is where you’ll have all the fun! Hello Kitty-themed foods will be so cute that guests would surely love to take photos before gobbling them all up! Here are some food and drink ideas for this party theme:

1. Hello Kitty cake

No birthday party is complete without a cake. With this theme, here are some ideas for your birthday cake:

  • Cake shaped like Hello Kitty’s face – Use a Hello Kitty cake pan to mold the entire cake, and decorate it however you want. White buttercream frosting looks great, but white fondant works well, too, if you want a smooth surface.
  • Any cake – Buy or have a cake baked to your liking and top it with this black, glittery Hello Kitty birthday cake topper. Any cake will fit the theme as long as you got that cake topper.
  • Cake with Hello Kitty’s face – Buy any plain-decorated vanilla, strawberry, or chocolate cake, then top it with Hello Kitty’s face. Pair it with these dainty cake toppers placed on the side of the cake.
  • White or pink cake – Bake a vanilla cake, a cherry chip cake, strawberry cake, or any cake flavor that comes in white or pink color. Decorate it with flowers, or top it with white chocolate drip-style icing, or a naked cake icing, then top it with this pink Hello Kitty birthday cake topper.   
  • Mousse cake – For a more grown-up approach, bake or buy chocolate mousse cake or tiramisu cake, then use these Hello Kitty stencils to decorate the top part with powdered sugar. The stencil will help you draw Hello Kitty’s face on top of the cocoa powder or chocolate icing! If you decide to have a mousse cake but the topmost part is made of white chocolate mousse, use cocoa powder instead to decorate.

2. Hello Kitty sandwiches or burgers

Make some burgers, sandwiches, or toast using bread shaped like Hello Kitty. It’s great for luncheon and brunch parties!

3. Hello Kitty pizza

Using Hello Kitty cookie cutters, shape your mini pizza crust like the beloved character! Top it with cheese first, then bake it halfway through. Then, put eyes and whiskers cut out from black olives, and make a hair bow out of pepperoni. Put it back in the oven, and once it’s done, top it with cheese slice noses.

4. Hello Kitty mold cookies

Bake snickerdoodles, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies, or any type of cookie you like and mold them in the shape of Hello Kitty characters. It’s the easiest route to themed cookies for the event, and you can even decide to give them off as party favors! Simply put a couple inside these cookie bags to give off to guests.

5. Hello Kitty sugar cookies

Sugar cookies decorated with icing are a must for this themed event! Use Hello Kitty cookie cutters and bring the beloved cartoon cat alive with icing! You may also use cookies in the shape of flowersbows and hearts – but keep the icing decoration simple and pastel-colored to stay true to the Hello Kitty theme. You can always bake some more to give away after the party.

6. Vanilla cupcakes with bow

Make pink bow candies using pink or red candy melts and bow molds, then put them on top of vanilla cupcakes with white frosting. Serve them in Hello Kitty muffin cups, or in pink polka dot baking cups.

7. DIY Hello Kitty cupcakes

Bake some cupcakes in the flavor you like and top it with smooth white buttercream frosting. Add triangle pieces of wafers for the kitty’s ears. Cut up some bows from strawberry fruit rolls, then use chocolate chips for the kitty’s eyes and pina colada jelly beans for the nose. Slice up black licorice to make whiskers you can put on the sides. 

8. Hello Kitty lollipops

Mold some hard candy or chocolate candy in the shape of Hello Kitty elements with this lollipop mold.  

9. Pink lemonade

This will add the perfect dash of pink to your party. Serve pink lemonade in glass bottles and add some pink straws to complete the look.
