Have been drafting this post from so long.. Finally it’s ready !!!
Happy 5th Birthday dear. You have been waiting for more than a quarter months.. when is my birthday..when is my birthday…!!! Finally, we celebrated your 5th Birthday. All my apprehensions were gone, when I saw you enjoying the evening with your school friends. I was more worried when I saw the weather forecast – Snow (1 inch- 2 inches). But, your friends were too good, they arrived on time, and were there till the whole evening.
We both started planning for the Birthday Party one month in advance. Party was from 5:30 PM in the evening.
1. Birthday Party Invitation –
This invitation card we made, with Pari putting up confetti in all the possible colors. I have just erased the Venue in this invitation card.
There was one more invitation card, which she liked a lot, in the shape of ice-cream, all inspired from pinterest.
2. Birthday Decor: We really had fun time with the decorations. She made me sit the whole night and make the tissue paper flowers.
Her Dad made the very beautiful “Shubhangi” Banner.
3. Birthday Cake – I wanted to bake a rainbow cake but could not make it 😦 .. So, we finally ordered a pink Barbie cake (her choice offcourse)- Marble Cake with Chocolate Mousse filling- from BJ’s.
