We decided to throw a combined birthday party for Mia and Mike over the weekends. We were occupied on their birth month (September) for few reason – celebrated our Aidilfitri and the following month,we went Australia for holiday. So we decided December it is!
I asked Mia what theme she likes and her answer was- ” a rapunzel party mommy!pleaseeee” . Mike is still very into his Buzz Lightyear , and so of course it has to be a Toys Story theme! Since it’s a combined theme ( a little crazy there i must say) I was happy it somehow matches in terms of color – purple (rapunzel) and green (buzz lightyear) . It was easy once I get the color combo and quickly work on what needed to be done.
This time around I plan to have games for the kids. One of it was the pinata. I was inspired with Jordan Ferney’s DIY pinata [here] and as a sucker for DIY I just gotta try. Number 5 for my girl . I knew it, my husband’s old album boxes will come in handy one day and so we used that! Reuse Recycle ;P . Bought purple and green crepe paper to work on it one step at a time. Mia even help out at one point but gave up as she feels ‘tired’ and wanted to do more important things (like watching her rapunzel movie for the nth time!) .
As in previous parties, I love giving something memorable for kids. Mia’s 3rd birthday we gave chalkmats as favors and in previous year was a small pocket bag. For this party I decided its best to make drawstring bags. Since there’ll be a pinata filled up with sweets, the bag will do ’em good 🙂 .
The last thing I don’t like in a birthday party is wasteful on food and cake! This year, we didn’t order one, except the green and purple swirls cupcakes. On the day itself I asked a friend a help me to buy wondermilk’s medium size cupcakes and treat it as the ‘birthday cake’. Almost all cupcakes gone by the end of the party. So yay! nothing was wasted. Success 🙂
One new things I splurge for the party would be the Ikea’s curtain I bought a week ago. I couldnt help it falling in love with the garland pattern on it so I must have that as the photobooth backdrop. We’re happy everyone was sucha sport taking pictures and using our silly props. Most things are recycled from our previous party.
Oh I must add, weather was great too! It was gloomy at first, but it just stop there, no rain. KL has been raining almost every afternoon til evening. Boy am I glad it didnt rain on the day 🙂 Alhamdulillah!
All in all, my kids had an awesome time with their friends and so do we. And THANK YOU my lovely friends who came and made a joyous day. Bless you!
Pictures time 😉
she even gave out a thank you speech to all guest 🙂
