Give Your Baby a Hello Kitty Theme Birthday Party

A Hello Kitty lover? Invite kittens to Hello Kitty birthday party to celebrate your baby’s birthday!!

Invitations

For the Hello Kitty invitations, you can either buy them or make them yourself, and I recommend the latter, which means a lot to both you and your baby.

Photo invitations: First, print Hello Kitty images on pink invitation cards. Then take a picture of the birthday baby, scan it, and paste it on the card.

Or you can make the invitation into a Hello Kitty shape, decorated with theme stickers, with the wording like “Hello Kitty invites you to …” Isn’t it cute?:-D

Decorations

Make your home a Hello Kitty world, and keep them light and elegant! Ivory, pink, white can be mostly used. Cover your fence with Hello Kitty images and buy some balloons and a sign says “Welcome to Hello Kitty Birthday Party!”

Here comes to the tables. Place a theme cloth and centerpiece, and you can tie balloons to the backs of the chairs.

Oh, do not forget to prepare a cute Hello Kitty dress for your baby.

Food and Drink

Birthday Cakes: Definitely the Hello Kitty Cake or cupcakes.

If you want a handmade birthday cake for your baby, bake a round cake, then down load and print Hello Kitty face image off the internet. Cut the image shape from paper, and trace the shape onto the cake with a toothpick. Decorate the whole as you like!!

Foods like pops, cookies, popcorn and etc. are all very popular, and decorate them with Hello Kitty.

As for the drinks, pay attention to the color. Freeze cranberry juice or red fruit punch in a star-shaped ice tray, or prepare pink lemonade mix. Garnish each drink with a cherry or strawberry on the rim of the glass can be a wonderful choice.

Etiquette and Wording Tips for Baby Shower Thank You Cards

Thank you cards are need after a baby shower; however, with so much on your mind the words may be harder to come by. Here are some etiquette and tips for you.

hello kitty baby shower thank you card wording

Etiquette

❤ Make hand written notes, it is fair since your guests went through both time and expense to choose a gift for your baby. Avoid writing more than four thank you cards at a time to keep your handwriting neat.

 

❤ Mention the specific gift in your thank you notes. For example, “Thank you for the lovely jumpsuit—little (Name of your baby if born) will look absolutely smashing all summer” is much better than just saying “Thank you for the gift”.

 

❤ Use the word “you” more than the word “I” to emphasize your gratitude for your friends and loved ones. Be sincere and address the thank you cards to the recipient by name.

 

❤ Take the time to thank the people who host the baby shower. They often receive a thank you gift such as candy, a picture frame or an engraved bracelet or locket. Arranging the party takes a lot of effort, so make sure to let them know how much it means to you.

 

❤ If your baby has already been born, make sure to include a photo of your little one in the card. It makes an ideal baby shower thank you.

 

❤ Send your baby shower thank you notes within two weeks. However, If you are late, remember, a late thank you card is better than no thank you at all.

Use a poem

Your own original poem or a famous poem can be used to express your thanks. Recently, a lot of people like to write a poem from the baby’s point of view. For instance:

I have something I need to say

Although I’m not even born yet

But I had to say a thank you

For all the gifts I’ll get

 

I’d also like to say thanks

From mom and dad too

For all the beautiful gifts

In pinks, and greens, and blues

 

While I had an empty closet

And my clothes and toys were few

That has all been changed

Thanks to all of you!!
