My daughter loves Hello Kitty and wanted a Hello Kitty party. Since I am not a big fan of character parties I had to find a way to make this happen. I went with the colors pink, yellow, and black and white polka dot and added a friendship theme to it.
My daughter's love of Hello Kitty! But the design came together with the party printables the Anders Ruff Custom Design made for me. The I found a a yard of black and white polka dot fabric and I ran with it.
The girls had Hello Kitty coloring sheets to color while the everyone arrived. I made donuts that the girls got to decorate with different color glazes and sprinkles; which was the main activity. In addition, I made strawberry milk and chocolate milk to go with the donuts. The "pink" milk was the most popular!! I found the little felt bags at Michaels on clearance and decorated them with each girls' initial using Martha Stewart glitter glue. I also added a flower to the bag and hung on each chair; thereby eliminating who sits next to who and they were so excited to see what was in the bags.
I loved the cookies that Rene from Bee's Knees Creative made for me. They were adorable and delish! The ruffled cake, from Tiffany and Cake, is another favorite, my daughter ran a finger in it before the party even started as she loved it too!
Don't over think it! Character parties do not need to literally involve the character. Think about what the character represents and use that as your theme.
