Frozen Birthday Party

Yes, even my dear Pari is still smitten by Frozen. And, for her 6th Birthday Party, she wanted a frozen Birthday Party. Thanks to Pinterest, and all the lovely ladies from where I got inspired and got ideas to finally execute the Birthday. Pari had a blast in the party and enjoyed the preparation.

Pari loved her birthday party and she already has made the plan for her next birthday: My Little Pony.

I told her,1 year is a big time, you might change your plan 🙂

After this birthday party, these are my thoughts: Kids love birthday parties. They don’t bother much about decorations: water bottle labels, food labels, and Themed decorations etc. They only love: cakes, pizza, ice-cream and goody bags. Also, they love to play games. Keep Birthday party simple with lots of games & gifts. 🙂

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.

Pari’s Birthday

This is how Pari celebrated her third Birthday…Somewhat as per the plan In the evening, the trio dino+mom, zoozoo+mom, Pari+PM offcourse driven by PP…went to Monkey maze in Marathahalli…Everybody enjoyed so much there.They had a gala time.

Frankly speaking, I didn’t like Monkey maze much .. as I was basically looking only for fun & play games… as in Snakes & Ladders, In monkey maze, playing only games had very little option, and whatever was there .. were not kid friendly.Zoo zoo got hurt as well 😦 , due to the way the sliders were placed.

While returning, stopped at McDonalds, had loads of burgers & french fries, came Home .. called up Zoozoo Dad & Dino dad, cut the cake , had celebrations, small dinner with the close  ones.. All of them started on sponge painting..tried made different shapes.. Overall it was a fun day.. And Yes, Pari answered all the 20 questions.

Could not do much of the theme work, as we had to leave for the native the very next day.
