I have an overdue birthday party review to write about
Adam Khaliff turned one year old on 6 April 2014. I've started the preparation bit with a lot of imaginary ideas of how it should be with no execution at all.
I've only started my execution phase when it were 3 weeks left to the party
Gahhhhhhhhh...it was so hectic and madness
We have decided on a BBQ kind of party so I was not really searching for food caterer so to speak. My only focus was on getting some side dishes to complement the main menu for the day i.e BBQ. I ordered lasagna from Luscious Treat, the owner is my friend's big sister. Luscious Treat serve the best lasagna in town. I kid you not

For kids entertainment, I have tonnes of activities in mind but obviously we cant have it all. Initially I wanted to have a bouncy castle for the kids but considering the space constraints and grandma's house is equipped with swimming pool so we thought the pool would be enough to entertain the kids
So alternative activity for kids who cant swim,
Tables for kids to have fun with the sand art. I bought the minions plastic table cover from bugsparty. Its just RM29.90. Good deal

Adults can have fun too
Since this is a minion theme party, I tried to put in some elements of Despicable Me movie. In the movie, Gru has a weapon called freeze ray where it literally freeze everything that he pointed at.
But mine were just a watergun and those kids loved it very much. The watergun were so cheap it is just RM1.80 each, bought at a party store in Seremban. Thanks to my babe Annette

The water gun!
For the candy buffet, Ive customised the printing order for Kit Kat wrapper, mineral water bottle label, cupcake topper from PartyHat.
You should check out their website for a good package. Initially I wanted to get everything from dear Azalea but it would be too costly since I am preparing a party for almost 40 kids
The candy buffet table
Kit kat 2F wrapper
The candy buffet did not turned out as what I expected it to be. I ran out of time to search for better table cloth for the buffet station. At that point of time, I can only accept whatever that were there. Lesson learned, if you want the best, save some money and go hire professional
as for the main cake, adam was blessed for this super cute minions cake baked by his Mimi (prettyyummybyjjs) You can google her to find out what she can bake. Well, almost everything under the sun. She is so talented. The best part about the cake is that its a butter icing cake so you can actually eat the whole thing. I dont quite like the fondant type
All in all, it was quite a fun party. I also had some minion freebies for the games but unfortunately kids nowadays were not that interested with games.
Thank God for the pool or else Adam's party will be the most boring party in the whole wide world
Well, I think thats all for now
Enjoy the picture

Thank you for all the gifts
