This KAWAII LOVE EIGHT BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Christine Kantaporn of Pure Joy Events. Isn’t it cute?! I haven’t seen this theme yet and I love it!

Christine said- “With its apple green walls, blush pink curtains, and off white furniture, Cailtyn’s bedroom was the perfect space to hold her 8th birthday party. Inspired by Paper Glitter’s Japanese Kawaii Love party kit, the room was decorated with cherry blossoms balloons, kawaii banners, bento boxes, Iwako erasers, and a giant panda balloon. In the center of the room, comfy chair cushions were placed along an activity table that sat low to the ground. Caitlyn’s 100+ collection of Iwako erasers were displayed on nail polish racks. Lime green and hot pink bento lunch boxes were wrapped with water bottle labels from the printable collection. Wooden clothes pins adorned with decorative washi tape were used to hang kawaii prints and secure glassine favor bags.

I kept the desserts simple — just cake, cupcakes and mochi ice cream. A raspberry butter cream cake and chocolate cupcakes were decorated with beautifully sculpted fondant toppers by Sugar High, Inc.

Each guest received a handcrafted book personalized with their name in Japanese. The girls drew kawaii faces with scented glitter gel pens and decorated their books with washi tape.

Using panda rice molds, food picks, cutters, nori punchers and other fun accessories, the girls prepared their bento boxes. Lunch was served with flavored sodas from Japan. Candy sushi filled gummy worms, Swedish fish and Twizzlers, wrapped with Rice Krispies Treats and Fruit by the Foot, and topped with roe-like mango poppers were a huge hit.

Each favor bag contained Paper Glitter’s kawaii panda stationery set, washi tape on a wooden spool, and an Iwako panda.”
