First birthday

It was only yesterday that i had my baby boy. He was so tiny and fragile weighing only 2.5 kilos when he was placed in my arms. But look at him now he is 11 kgs and strong and with a personality MA. He is one year MA. Time sure flies!!

I didnt want a grand birthday as i believe kids so small dont remember how their birthdays were. But i wanted to have it special for pictures and memories sake, after all first birthdays are special. I started planning about 1.5 months ago. Since he dont have any favourites at this age, i decided to go with a colour theme, so i chose blue, green and turquiose colours.

I started off with an invite in green and blue hues. Didnt print it though just e-mailed and Whatsapp'ed it to the people we were inviting over. It worked good.

Then i started planning how to decorate the living room. Collected the blue green streamers, balloons and tabler covers. Printed and designed some decorative stuff. I wanted to bake the cake myself but its been a while since i have baked, so decided against it. I looked around a lot for an affordable and good cake, wanted something that looked as well as tested good too. I have tasted caked that looked absolutely stunning with aweful taste. So whoever i contacted i specifically asked if they can have both good taste and looks. I finally settled with Amani cakes. She charged half what others quoted me. The cake looked pretty the way i wanted except i thought he colours were a bit dull, i had asked for a bright blue, green turquise color and the cake colours wee on a lighter side. Nevertheless it was good looking and tasted DELICIOUS! It was soft and moist and melt-in-your –mouth kind of experience. Would definitely be ordering from her again.

Enough of talking, lets head over to the moments from the birthday. Enjoy! :-)
