The activity corner included car coloring and a jigsaw for Anush's age group and stacking cars for the tots. We also hired battery operated vehicles- a car and a jeep from Toysdayout ( a brilliant concept, definitely new to Chennai I think) This turned out to be the most fun part of the evening. Just to keep out unwanted party raiders, we gave tattoos to the invitees which had to be shown to entitle you for a ride.
The eats were light - cholay chaat, wafers, thattai, jalebis and mango squash. The cakes ( a car one what else... and an egg less one) were courtesy Cakes and Bakes but not as tasty as the previous times we have ordered there. And yes there were chocolates of course.
The goody bag included car theme- erasers, stickers, mini car models. There were key chains for the slightly older lot. For the family, we had terracota horses /elephants and an audio cd of Anush's favourite songs with an introduction by her.
Despite the unexpected rain and the swine flu scare we had fairly good attendance. At least no food wasted! Some of the Chennai blogger friends came in as well- Indu, Lavs, Itchy, hastobeme and Uma. And some other friends who could not make it on Saturday turned up on Sunday!!
