Hello Kitty Invites

Hello Kitty Party Invitations

Creative invitations are the best way to build excitement before the big date. If you have the time to make your own invitations, here are a few suggestions:

  • Cut the shape of a bow out of pink or red paper. Place a sticker in the center with celebration details and add glitter glue to the edges.
  • Print Hello Kitty images from your computer and paste pictures on cardstock around the party info.
  • Cut out invitations in the shape of Hello Kitty’s head and then draw on her face and bow. Write event details on the back.
  • If you can hand-deliver your invitations, tie red or pink ribbon around each envelope.
  • Decorate your invitations with glitter glue, sequins, and stickers.
  • Sprinkle glitter in the envelope for an extra special touch.

  • Provide each guest with a bento box that features rice shaped as Hello Kitty’s head.
  • Customize mini pizzas to put a cheesy spin on the iconic character.

  • Add a pop of color to kids’ cups by serving pink lemonade.
  • Make pink bow cookies and put them on top of vanilla cupcakes.

Hello Kitty Cake

No Hello Kitty birthday party would be complete without a Hello Kitty cake! Fortunately, Hello Kitty has a simple face, so this cake isn’t too difficult to make.

  1. Bake a round cake.
  2. Print out a Hello Kitty face image from your computer, cut out the shape, and then trace it onto the cake using a toothpick.
  3. Cover Hello Kitty’s face in white icing.
  4. Add black jelly beans for her eyes and a yellow jelly bean for her nose.
  5. Use black licorice laces or black gel frosting to make her whiskers.
  6. Create her signature bow below her ear using either red or pink icing.
  7. Alternatively, you can use a real bow and remove it before cutting the cake.
  8. Frost the rest of the cake outside of her face with pink icing.

(If you don’t want to go through the hassle, use a Hello Kitty Cake Pan!)
