Preparation for 1st birthday

Since end of last month, we already plan out how to give our little one a birthday party bash. Now, finally the day almost come. This Sunday noon will be the celebration. Ever since both of us agreed to give him a nice party, most of the time I myself get things done and confirm.

We invited mainly our family, relatives and close friends, counted around 90+ people. Cater food from Restaurant Talifon with 14 dishes including drinks and fruits. Reasonable price per head with free tables and chairs (as per pax ordered), but we top up more chairs. For birthday cake, I get to order from Mama Min (Intro by Sasha, her SIL) with Snoopy 3D design something like this and this.

Snoopy handkerchief from HK and Snoopy sticker from US. Looks like many Snoopy hor. Yes, I want it that way, since he was in my tummy I promised to give him Snoopy things for his baby item. Very sorry to him I couldn't buy him anything in Snoopy. May be our country not so fansy with cartoon character item like Hong Kong or Japan, it is really hard to find. But I just couldn't think that, those second hand pass down baby stuff from here and there, have Snoopy in it. Like his cot bumper, singlet and rompers.

See the drawstring gift bag, it is hand-made, sure not buy from anywhere. I bought the Organza cloth meterial and string, my mum sew the bag, and I did the rest of finishing work, like sewing the small bear at the right bottom corner and putting the string in. A lot of work hor? but with planning and time I'm able to finish since 2 weeks ago. Another thing is actually I was so tempted to get him a set of Snoopy boy set from eBay for him to wear on his birthday, but at last not buying it.

We rented a hall downstair at our apartment here. Don't think can fit so many people in our small house. Rented hall is the best solution and also not to make the house mess up after party. What so bad is the hall no fan and light (will double confirm again). Saturday will getting the hall key and place in the our own table fan and stand fan first. Luckily the hall full of windows think should be alright during the noon time with all window open up, it should not be that hot. Sunday is daddy's turn to do his work that is to tie balloon at the hall. Well, I still need to pump air for the decoration balloon and some for kids to play.

Own print birthday invitation card and phone calls have been made since last week. Think all should be done now. Fun or not? I don't know yet, hopefully everyone will enjoy it and finger cross that Sunday will have a nice weather.
