Anushka is six!



This day, six years ago, I became a mother for the first time. It has been one of the most fulfilling aspects of my existence. Thanks Anushka for making my life more beautiful in every sense of the term.


Here are the various aspects of her bday party which took place last Friday. We had a sea theme birthday only because it seemed easy and pretty and I had managed to find her a blue frock!




FOOD: Shell & Star biscuits , Goldfish, Pasta salad, Honey twists, Veggie Fish/ Starfish cutlets, Candies, Chocolates, Juice, Two tier marine Cake





GAMES: Fishing with feet, Catch fish, Short Treasure hunt, Ocean quiz, Burst the Bubbles, Shell strings, Sea collage




DECOR: Lots of shells, blue and green paper and balloons, fish related toys of Aditi, food fish and mock edible sea ( marshmellow and rusk crumbs)






GIFTS: Fish sticker books among other stuff



Some friends whom you might know who made it were Abha ( Mamma Mia), JLT, S from ST, Mindfulmeanderings, Chox and the avid blog reader S. No pics of them for obvious reasons.

Wow - how do you do this! Did you make all those sea themed cookies and stuff? Really beautiful and coordinated party. I didn't realize that Anushka and my son were the same age/same month. Belated birthday wishes to Anushka! Hope she has an awesome year!

Thanks all for the very kind words

Food was very mild to suit kids- not too great for adults I suppose
(though I had placed pepper on the table and some ketchup)

Preeti said...

Looks really awesome! I love the effort you take to put together these parties... really cool!
