Munch’s Birthday Party-1

The much-planned and awaited ninth birthday party of Munch was a great successs!!Most of the things went to plan…the party started on time,there was hundred percent turnout as all of Munch’s friends made it this time and all the kids went home happy.So here I am sharing my very own efforts at organizing this party with you all.

The theme as you might have seen in the earlier posts was Alice in Wonderland.In India, this is not one of the popular themes, so the markets in a small town like mine had nothing to offer.Keeping this in mind,I took up the challenge and decided to do as much as possible to bring the theme alive..

First up,I designed these Invites…

aar 030Next,I made cutouts of a few characters like the Mad Hatter,Alice,Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee,The Queen of Hearts,her soldiers…(am not an artist at all,hence the results may not be too great)

Guess the theme!

Finally it is the BIrthday Week.

I am in the thick of preparations – shopping,coordinating,inviting,double checking…Am I growing paranoid?You bet ,I am.That is what happens when you are the only parent around for your kids.You just want to be perfect and give your children the best.I put in special efforts to make each of their birthdays special so that they have special memories of their childhood.Yes…one might think I sometimes overdo it and exhaust myself in the process.But that is how I am.In the midst of planning games for the kids,I thought I will let you play a guessing game of what the theme this year is.I know it will be easy for all of you talented mothers out there to guess.Anyways,I’ll still let you do it and show you my efforts in the process.
