People always told me time flies when you have kids. And boy were they ever right. I can’t believe my little girl is two years old! For her birthday I had decided on a gold theme with mint. But then I thought about how much she loves Hello Kitty and so I decided I needed to throw her a Hello Kitty party. I was able to buy all the Hello Kitty stuff as markdowns after Valentines day so that was awesome (see THIS post about saving on party supplies). I combined it with the other gold stuff I had already been making and the mint, pink and gold Hello Kitty party was born. It was a fun party to put together and I don’t think I have ever seen so many Hello Kitty presents!
I used THIS whipped cream frosting recipe for the cake. The bottom layer was chocolate with white chocolate frosting and the top layer was strawberry with cheesecake frosting.
The gold garland banner in the background was made using large gold confetti pieces that I sewed together. It was easier than I thought it would be and was a quick project. The Hello Kitty heads were actually Valentines, but I used them for the banner instead.
I painted mason jars with regular acrylic paint and a sponge brush then used some glitter scotch tape for the top detail. I found the flowers marked down at my local grocery store the day before and just trimmed them and added them to the jars.
I forgot to take more pictures of the food, but we had Korean noodle bowls that were delicious! It’s a crockpot homemade version of a popular food truck around here- Cupbop. I think I will post the recipe soon. Some of the ingredients are a little harder to find, but they are worth it!
