Anyone remember this store? We had one at a mall here when I was younger. I loved this store! Mainly because I love Hello Kitty, but also because they had the coolest stuff.
This past Sunday, we had our monthly fellowship and potluck at church. There is usually a theme and this month was "Pinterest". We were asked to sign up to decorate tables and get our ideas from Pinterest.
I signed up and got online. After many, many hours spent perusing Pinterest and changing my mind 72 times, I decided to do a Hello Kitty table.
My friend took this picture. I was on a budget, so I resorted to basically using my Silhouette to do 95% of the table. That's a lot of pink... and I love it!
How adorable are these plates? Yeah, I can't take credit for them. Totally a Pinterest steal, but they're still cute.
Another Pinterest steal. I used a circle punch and some vinyl to jazz up the cups, then added bows to the straws. Only one person didn't want to drink from the bow straw and he was a man. Go figure....ha ha.
This centerpiece was a pain in the you know what! As I said, our budget is tight right now so I was trying to use things we had on hand. I didn't have a vase to use, so we stuck some plastic risers together and wrapped them with paper. Not the cutest thing ever, but it worked. This looks lopsided and I did fix it, but it was after I took the picture. I love those rainbows!
So the plan was to hang three balloon flowers above the table. And that I did...sorta. This flower looks great, but the others not so much. Apparently, manipulating balloons is not my forte. They all started out as flowers, but one of them turned into a nice cloud-like group of balloons with no shape.
Someone took this with my phone, so I apologize for it being blurry, but I wanted to show the entire table. If you need cheap decor for a party, you can't get cheaper than this. I spent less than $5.00 for the entire table. It took some labor and my Silhouette did most of the work, but I love how it turned out.
All the "confetti" on the table was cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I googled Hello Kitty and found several images. I then imported them into the software and used the trace feature. I love that trace feature!! It's awesome. If you've never used it, don't be scared. It's easy and wonderful!
Have a happy Tuesday!
