We created this first Hello Kitty bouquet in June 2011 and since then we have been receiving many enquiries about whether we could arrange other look alike bouquets such as elmo, smiley and even angry bird. Well guess what? All of the mentioned, we attempted and they not only look unique but incredible adorable too. What better way to surprise that someone special with our new range of unique character bouquets. a sure eye catcher and envy from those who have been receiving regular bouquets.
Here’s a bit of a background about hello kitty:
That adorable face with the dots for eyes, no mouth, and bright red bow is the creation of Sanrio, a Japanese company. First designed by Yuko Shimizu. She is portrayed as a female white Japanese bobtail cat with a red bow.The character’s first appearance on an item, a vinyl coin purse, was introduced in Japan in 1974 and brought to the United States in 1976.
Sanrio was looking for a mascot that would apply to pre-teen girls, and they struck gold when they introduced Hello Kitty to the world.
Unlike other mascots, Hello Kitty is purely a business woman. She is not in any cartoons or movies. Instead, you’ll find her face on everything from pencils to purses. In fact, she was originally created so that Sanrio could have something girly to put on a change purse!
Although she is used for her marketing prowess, Hello Kitty does have a family and a life. Hello Kitty’s real name is Kitty White. The red bow that she wears is used to distinguish Kitty from her twin sister, Mimi, who dons a yellow bow. Kitty is a 3rd grader who lives with her parents near London. Like many other children, she rides the bus to school every day – to a school in a suburb of London.
But if she was created by a Japanese company, why does she live in England? Back in the mid 1970′s, the British lifestyle was incredibly popular in Japan. Sanrio wanted to create a character that capitalized on the latest trends – in addition to being absolutely adorable! In fact, the British lifestyle played such a big role in the creation of Hello Kitty that her real name was originally “Whitey Kitty” – a name taken from Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass”.
The Hello Kitty character was deliberately designed without a mouth because the lack of smile or frown means makes it easier for people to project their own feelings on to the cartoon. Or as one author put it ‘the person can be happy or sad together with Hello Kitty’.
