When it comes to planning birthday parties for my kids, I usually start with a theme. As Kaelyn’s birthday neared she expressed an interest in having hers be Hello Kitty, which I thought would be really cute! With the goal of finding everything I’d need including plates, balloons, etc. all in one place, I came across Celebrate Express and am so happy I did!
With the desire to help busy people celebrate life’s special moments, Celebrate Express offers party supplies and costumes all in one convenient location. They currently operate four brands you may be familiar with: Celebrate Express, Birthday Express, 1st Wishes, and Costume Express. We were very happy with the costume we reviewed from Costume Express last month, and couldn’t wait to checking out Birthday Express and their birthday supplies for kids! They offer a complete, accessorized product assortment for chidren’s birthday parties, and with over 150 different themes to choose from…you’re sure to find one that suits your child just perfectly!
As I browsed around Birthday Express for the first time, I was incredibly impressed with how user friendly it was. There are helpful categories along the side and top that made it easy for me to search. Of course, once I came across all the Hello Kitty party supplies, I knew it would be perfect for Kaelyn’s party!
We were sent the Hello Kitty Deluxe Party Pack. It included:
- 8 invitations
- Dinner Plates
- Activity Placemats
- 16 napkins
- Hello Kitty tablecover
- Foil Balloon
- 18 balloons (3 colors)
- Crepe paper rolls (3 colors)
- Curling ribbon (3 colors)
- Star confetti
When the package arrived I was amazed with how much it offered. It included everything we could possibly need to make her birthday party just perfect! I love that it’s all included in one party pack so you don’t have to go around buying everything separately. Not only does this save time, but also money.
I couldn’t get over how cute everything looked once we got the table set up. The tablecover and centerpiece really made the theme stand out more than anything else I think. There were also fun placemats with activities for kids to do on the back. Kaelyn and her cousin really enjoyed this and I did too! What a great bonus to an already amazing party pack. I love that the thought went into table decorations as well as the other necessaties needed for a party.
The cups, plates, napkins, spoons and forks were also included and very nice to have. We set them right by the food and cake which made everything even that much more exciting for Kaelyn! She was tickled to be eating her cake off of a Hello Kitty plate. It made it a very special day for her.
I would have to say that the balloons were probably the biggest hit of the party. Kaelyn, Kaden and her cousins all enjoyed looking at the bright colors and playing with the balloons. We had several assortments put together (including the foil balloon) and then blew up a bunch and scattered them around the house to add to the fun of the party.
We were very happy with the Hello Kitty Deluxe Party Pack! I couldn’t have been happier with all that it included. It was created to be convenient for parents, as well as super fun and special for the birthday girl.
There are also a lot of extras that can be purchased to go along with the theme if a parent wishes. The Hello Kitty Pinata would especially be great for children who are a little bit older. Isn’t it cute?!
Of course, Hello Kitty is just one of the many themes offered. With everything from Cars & Trucks themes to Princess & Dolls Themes, you’re sure to find something that suits your little one just perfectly! I would highly recommend checking them out the next time you’re planning a party.
