Was going through some old photos, and realized that I have some really happy photos from Fighter's 1-year-old birthday party! Since his party was exactly 2 months before, I take it as an omen that I have to blog about it LOL. OK, fine, I just really like all the colorful photos that I have taken! :P You can read mommy Audrey's detailed account here.
Audrey is my first close friend who has a baby, so naturally I was really excited about his party. Went to the party earlier to help her to set-up! When I called her to check where she was, she was at the balloon shop nearby collecting the balloons, so I popped by...
.... and ended up being a crazy balloon lady haha.
Which also proved to be quite challenging when attempting to cross the road wtf.
Banana print bandeau top: Chatchuchak, Bangkok
White checkered midi skirt: AZORIAS
Striped platforms: Zara
Suede messenger bag: Fendi
After selfishly taking up the whole lift (I was carrying 40-over balloons), and murmuring "sorry, sorry" to anyone who wanted to come into the lift wtf, I finally reached the party venue!
Quickly got to working. First task on hand was to lay out all the placemats! The vinyl record placemats are perfect for the Beatles-themed party.
The party was set in a baby gym, so I was expecting a sterile, white and bare space. But I was pleasantly surprised to see that the place actually looked more like a warm and cozy cafe!
Quickly go maul the birthday boy first! He looked so handsome in a suit, like a little man. :D
The place after set-up! So cheerful and happy, perfectly apt for a kid's birthday party!
The really impressive spread.
I vaguely remember all my birthday parties to be held at home serving my grandma's curry chicken and fried bee hoon FML. But here we had quiche and puffs, finger sandwiches, delicate rolls, cookies, scones, smoked salmon.... *salivates*
I honestly feel a little moved when I was standing in the background watching Aud and Tim take photos with their guests. Just barely a year ago, I was in Aud's hospital ward, watching them share their dinner from a tiffin carrier that was delivered from home, all of us trying to cheer Aud up. And look at where we are now! :')
A sexy Fighter greets every table, haha.
Themed toppers, which added such a personalized touch! Here is Strawberry Fields, Yellow Submarine, and Octopus Garden.
We also handwrapped each of these chocolates! Some of them went to the dessert table, and some to the goodie bags.
Speaking of the goodie bags, half-way packing them, Audrey accidentally mentioned that they are only for the children! We almost went on strike WTF. In the end, she graciously allowed us to pack extra for ourselves, haha.
Even the baby chair is all festive!
Bobo and Jo with their newborn, HEHEHE. It's actually Ringo's baby, Junya! But don't they look like such proud parents LOL.
Girlfriends! We are all mothers/ married/ engaged. :')
Prize-giving ceremony wtf. Haha, trying to give Fighter his birthday present, but he couldn't care less FML.
I was racking my brains to think of something educational yet fun to give him, and after doing some online research, I read that experts said that music instruments actually help to develop toddler's creative minds and and boost mental power! Also, I thought that a musical toy will go very well with the Beatles' theme. :D Bought the coolest musical instrument I can think of... which is a set of toy drums! *gives myself a pat on the back*
Cutting cake at the dessert table with a squirmish Fighter.
Love this photo of Fighter and us!
The coveted goodie bag LOL. So cute with the Beatles design! And I loved Audrey's Beatles nails too!
By the way, guess how is Fighter doing with his new toy drums?
It's his new favorite chew toy LOL.
