Hello Kitty Recital Bouquet

I was so beyond excited about little CeeCee’s first ballet recital that I couldn’t wait to make her a little nosegay.  I wanted to add a little something special and so I turned to the thing she loves the most… her “kitties” … Hello Kitty!

I headed off to Michael’s with a loose plan.  I decided to make one Hello Kitty themed silk flower that could be tucked into a nosegay of real flowers.  That way she could keep the Hello Kitty long after the real flowers wilted.

Supplies I used for Hello Kitty:
2 white silk carnations ($1)
2 black pom poms (eyes)
1 pink pom pom (nose)
black cording (cut into whiskers)
pink ribbon
white foam for ears
hot glue
tape

To wrap up bouquet:
pipe cleaner
pink ribbon
paper doily
small $4 bunch of flowers from Trader Joe’s

I originally cut out a foam bow and then later decided a ribbon bow would be cuter.  I also subbed out the yellow nose for pink.  I printed off a copy of Hello Kitty to use as a guide for cutting the ears.

To assemble the bouquet:
Remove leaves from bottom 3/4 of stems
Arrange flowers in hand
Use pipe cleaner to wire together
Cut stems
Cut hole in center of doily and slide up stem; Tape to secure
Wrap entire stem in pink ribbon and tie with a bow!

The little angel absolutely loved it!!!!  It was really inexpensive to make and will surely make any little girl’s day!

I absolutely adored every second of her recital and will share all the preciously pink pictures later this week!!!  It was a welcome change from my usual rough and tumble weekends :-)

  1. This is perfect! My daughter LOVES Hello Kitty and has her dance recital next month. I’m definitely making this! Thanks for the awesome idea!

  2. I love this so much! I still have the card from a bouquet my big sister gave me for one of my dance recitals. I remember it well and its so special to me. I just signed my little angel up for “baby ballet” in the fall and I am sooooo excited. She’s only 2 but its never too early to start learning about pointing her toes and working on a proper turn out, right? Can’t wait for pics of CeeCee’s recital!!

  3. I’m going to need to see that recital dress of hers. I think it should come in my size!
    I am really not a Hello Kitty fan…..until now. Oh my goodness. So stealing idea for our Nutcracker in December!!!! Priss danced for the first time (mouse and bon bon) I asked her how she felt being on the back row. She said she didn’t like it, she wanted to be in front. I cried just a little because I knew she had the ballet bug I had…still have and was praying she would!
