Fairy Party

Our fairy party is in Featured Submissions on Amy Atlas Blog

Milcah turned to 7. I just wanted to enjoy planning her parties before she grows up and becomes a teenager. This year, Milcah changed her mind 3 times from Tinker Bell to butterfly to fairy party. At the end, it worked well. I am very blessed to have friends who were willing to help me with the party: Cecilia, Michelle, and Clare during the makeup session.

I put a lot of elbow grease into decorating this party. At the end, it was like a fairy dream for Milcah and her friends and that’s all that matters.

Parties

Ramen Dinner

Ladies fellowship is one of the things that I enjoy to do. Our friend, Cecilia, offered to cook ramen for us and all of us split the cost. I simply could not pass this moment to have the ramen dinner without japanese decoration.

We used bento box, white dinnerware, chopsticks, vases with long sticks, japanese candle holder, and sake pitcher and cups to refine the oriental feeling for this dinner.

The neat thing was I spent nothing by using knick knacks around our house and also sake collection from Cecilia.

Parties

Thanksgiving Lunch

We have been invited to thanksgiving dinner for these last three years by a nice couple and we always end up too full. To balance the heavy dinner, we decided to have a healthy and light sukiyaki lunch and karaage (japanese fried chicken) for the kids.

I found these mini pumpkins and gourds from pumpkin patch near our house. They were so cute that I could not resist to purchase and use them as centerpiece.

Sweet and Sassy Party

When Milcah turned to six, we decided on an effortless party from our side. Sweet and sassy was a right venue to have her enchanted princess party. I baked the Rapunzel cake and for the goodie bag, we chose dolls instead of candies. I have a pet peeve about giving too much candies to little kids since we try to limit the amount of sweets taken by our kids. Those were actually the only things that we needed to prepare for her party.

Milcah and her princess friends were getting ready for the ball with Beautiful Gowns, Fairy-tale Up-dos, Sparkling Makeup and the perfect Nail Polish. The modern day Princess Ball included Dancing and a Crowning Ceremony, where each princess was regally announced and received her very own Sparkling Tiara, Princess Certificate, and a sprinkling of fairy dust. The Princess Ball concluded with a Princess Friends Photo and fun and feasting in Cake Place. Everything was held within 2 hours period of time.

Star Wars Cake and Cupcakes

Happy birthday, Anandha! You are a big boy now.

Nanda always has his own creative ideas and styles and it began when he was three. On his 8th birthday, he requested a laser tag theme party. We researched on places in Columbus that provides a laser tag game and Magic Mountain Polaris wins so far because it also has Rookie Karts for kids at his age.

As usual, our kids could choose 9 closed friends to invite. Having 10 boys, including Nanda, and one girl, Milcah our daughter, can be challenging. We simply could not keep up with their energy 🙂 .

Nanda even designed his cake. He wanted to have star wars lego toys on top of the cake.

Pretty in Pink and Chocolate

We only celebrate a big birthday party for our kids when they turn to five. Milcah, our baby girl, would have a pretty in pink and chocolate for her party’s theme.

Planning and designing are part of me. I love to design cake, party, house, and website and make them look fabulous. People look with their eyes so the first impression is very important. We, ehm I mean me, had planned this party for a year. Most people probably think that this is too much and yet, I took pleasure in doing every single of it.

Initially, we wanted to have a pony party but pretty and animal feces did not go well together. At least, it was not something that I had in mind. For a plan B, Milcah wished princesses to come to her party and she chose Jasmine and Aurora. Princess merged with pink and chococolate inspired me to create Milcah’s sculpted dress cake on a pedestal. It was a little different than the traditional barbie doll princess cake.

It started with pink impatients flowers in terracota planters and pink lollipop flowers as the centerpieces. Every kid had their own brown with pink polkadot placemat, a white embroidery paper underneath a pink flower cupcake on the holder, and a pink goodie box.

We catered the Indonesian food from our friend, Hesti, that created a beautiful three tiers yellow rice decorated with parsley and cherry tomatoes. For the dessert table, we brought pink and chocolate wafers. Cecilia sisters baked chocolate oreo truffle balls and pink macaroons with nutella. They were so pinkalicious!

Jasmine and Aurora came to entertain little girls with storytelling and dancing. Milcah was not being herself when meeting the princesses because she was too excited in the beginning and nervous at the end. The little girls waved to the princesses with sadly faces when they left and said goodbye.

Lastly but not least, I baked the cake and Restu took the candid pictures. We were thankful for friends that had helped us with this magical party. Now, I can just relax and stay in focus for Milcah’s 16th birthday party. My friend teased me that I need to grow peony plants now if I want to have a party looks like the one designed by Preston Bailey.
