Birthday party: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Birthday celebrations are always a simple affair in my family. Just a simple family meal with a slice of cake and a candle. But this year, we broke the tradition and had three themed birthday celebrations in a row! It all started with a watermelon-themed birthday party for Ch in July. L saw all the fun we had planning for Ch's party and requested for a birthday celebration too. And since we agreed to both their requests, it wouldn't be fair to K if we didn't celebrate her one-year old birthday right? That was how we had a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star themed party for K in August, followed by a Siew Mai themed party for L in September.

Here is the background behind K's birthday party theme.

+ party invite.  These were printed on shimmery cardstock paper to bring out the theme of the celebration. 

+ party decorations.  I decided to hand-make the birthday bunting after having fun making one for the watermelon-themed party. The bunting read Kayleen is 1, and each letter was made of three layers - the top layer with a blue letter, the middle layer with scalloped borders which I painstakingly cut out because my lousy decorative scissors decided to fail on me, and the bottom white cardstock paper.

Two helium balloons - blue and yellow - added shimmer to the party. The little stars strung on the cabinet were also hand-made. 

Menu for the catered dinner was printed on the same background as K's party invite and framed using a white wooden frame. I added my yellow smiley rubber star which I bought years ago.

+ party favors.  What's a birthday celebration without party favors? The honey stars and traditional chocolate biscuit sticks were a hit with the kids!

 + party program.  Games were intentionally left out for this party as we wanted everyone to mingle and chat. ZY did a slideshow of K which brought back so many fond memories of K's candid moments. We also had a cartoon movie screened to entertain the younger guests too.

Happy birthday dear K! You are definitely the star in our family, and I will always love you. Mommy prays that you will continue to be healthy, meeting your developmental milestones at your pace with our help and support.
