My sweet Charlotte turned 2 this December and we decided to celebrate Hello Kitty-style! Charlotte's special day was a dessert celebration with a small group of friends. Since there was going to be a range of ages at the party (2-7 year olds as well as adults), I wanted the decor and treats to be appealing to everyone. I chose a yellow and pink color scheme to reflect our fun and spunky little girl's personality and added hints of Hello Kitty throughout.
I created a fun pom pom backdrop for the dessert table which added a lot of color and visual interest. Stay tuned for a DIY tutorial. This is the pre-party set-up (the actual party was at night so some of my pictures are really dark. Darn it!):
The dessert table included a cupcake tower with mini cupcakes adorned with Hello Kitty bows and topped with a Hello Kitty cupcake for the birthday girl, fresh fruit, cookies, mini meringues, nuts, assorted cheesecake bites, and homemade banana pudding and yogurt cups.
Each guests received a Hello Kitty bow to wear for the party upon arriving.
A table was set up for the "little" guests to enjoy their dessert treats. Again, I used the pink and yellow color scheme and hints of Hello Kitty ;)
I created Hello Kitty balloons for the birthday table and for the guests to take home. These turned out to be a great addition to the party however next time I would use larger balloons to help support the card stock that I attached.
Charlotte's guests were sent home with Hello Kitty Brownies in a Jar. Yummy!
We had a great time celebrating Charlotte's 2nd birthday and I had almost as much fun planning it!
