Carla’s Hello Kitty in Candyland Themed Party – 1st Birthday

Hello Kitty Theme Party Ideas


Feline Phenomena! Today’s party features the ultimate icon of kawaii, Ms Kitty White, also known as Hello Kitty. Known for her perpetual cuteness, this anthropomorphic bobtail cat has won the hearts of girls and ladies alike. We’ve all seen this charming little character: from small scented erasers, to home appliances; from transportation to establishments; from high fashion to streetwear; Hello Kitty with her iconic red bow will always be the epitome of the idealized girl-hood.

It would be easy to see why Carla’s parents would choose Hello Kitty as her party theme. After all, they are both cheerful, friendly and energetic. So, here’s the main challenge in pulling off a Hello Kitty birthday bash: how to engage the little boys with such a girly theme. Why, with a second theme, of course! Hence, Hello Kitty in Candyland, because what better way to unite kids of all ages than with sweet treats, right?

At the helm of design and styling is The Party Project Manila, who is always up for this kind of demand. Instead of using a palette of red and white shades (which is a staple for any Hello Kitty fete), Carla’s party was hued in a fun chroma-combo of aqua, honeysuckle, and purple. Guests were enticed with a myriad of sweet and eye-catching elements, instead of being bombarded with just one and the same detail. If the goal is to create a charming and festive mood for the guests, this is a hands-down win.

An entrance set-up has never looked so sweet! It invokes the same feeling one gets right before entering a candy shoppe: #excitedmuch.


I am so in love with the ceiling installment. The tassels inspire a captivating and festive mood, sparking awe from onlookers. Japanese lanterns in pastel undertones were also added for more impact. My favorite deets would be the hanging sweet treats.


The main area features larger-than-life decadence. Gigantic lollies, colossal cupcakes and huge doughnuts draw the attention in with their convivial charm. As the better half of the party theme, a Hello Kitty was placed in the middle of the set-up. Carla’s name was displayed as a marquee, which brought in the element of light.
