Project Birthday 2013 (Part 2)

Event: Triple Birthday Celebration to celebrate Ryan, Iman and Ranya's Birthday :) 
Date : 28 December 2013 (Saturday)
Venue: KFC Extreme Park, Shah Alam

*warning: this is a picture heavy post* 

We choose to celebrate the children's birthday in KFC this year. Main reason for not holding the party at home is because I do not want to cook and clean up (haha) But me being me, I still went bonkers planning decorations, Ryan and I had so much fun working on the deco's together. 

Since it was a shared party, I had to come up with a theme suited for Ryan, Iman and Ranya. Naturally, Ryan wanted something superhero which was kinda easy to set up, coming up with a theme for Iman and Ranya is a bit tricky so I mixed a little bit of everything from Elmo, Tinkerbell and the Disney Princesses. For their outfit, we got Ryan a cute Batman outfit and the twins recycled their Disneyland Snow White and Rapunzel dresses :)
The Deco and Food

The Dessert Table : KFC has an outside food restriction but they made some exemptions for desserts like birthday cakes and "jajan". For the dessert table, I ordered Ryan a Batman birthday cake,matching cupcakes and mini pavlova from The Baking Fairies. For the twins I chose the adorable Grace Kelly cake from Wondermilk. For added deco I stuck a Tinkerbell and Snow White figurine on top of the cake. I also prepacked some yummy flavoured popcorns from Popcorn World, icing biscuits and some candies in some DIY decorated boxes,
My little man chose this cake design himself after making me google "Batman Cakes" on the search engine -__-

DIY photo props and pop up books on the center table

Party favours from KFC and some additional ones we prepared for our mini VIP guests

Food buffet by KFC.
You're given 3 options according to the number of your guest.
We choose Options C to cater for 40-50 guest

Chiky Meals for the little ones 
We had a choice between nuggets and fried chicken so we ordered 10 boxes of each to give the kids options

The "Penyeri Majlis"

We invited mostly family and just close friends to celebrate the happy day with us :) Ryan was the life of the party (as always) Iman and Ranya was a bit reserved, I guess the crowd and some unfamiliar faces scare them a little...

The girlies : Farisa, Najwa, Irma, Iena and Rinie :)

Reza and Syer and the very content Hareez at the back

The Celebration

At the end of the party Chicky made an appearance during cake cutting. 
Iman is scared of Chicky but thank god she didn't cry but she totally refused to look at him the whole time haha

My cinta hati(s) and a chicken :p
Cake cutting time for Iman and Ranya

As a part of the package, a party personnel was around to help us with the organizations and activities. The kids were kept entertained with 3 games, so cute watching the blur munchkins trying to follow orders. Thank god for my cousins who was around to "facilitate". Anyway a shout out to our friendly and helpful party personel (I think her name is Zura) we had so much fun :)

My shy shy cat princesses :)

Chicken Dance time :)

Until Next Time *inSyaAllah*

My babies are so blessed and spoiled with so much rizq. Thank you for the toys, books and awesome learning tools ( supplies, telescopes etc). I appreciate the effort of everyone getting them educational toys. Hahaha macam tau2 je perangai mak dia macam mana kan? *alhamdullilah* and triple thanks from all of us...

At the end of the day, many thanks to Allah for giving me the opportunity and means to throw this birthday party for Ryan, Iman and Ranya  who totally enjoyed themselves. We are also blessed with the attendance of family and friends near and far :) So good to catch up and watch the smiles on the little kiddies face.

So until next time :p I have a feeling that Project Birthday 2014 would be a more low key affair possibly somewhere outside the state (or country??) Oh well a girl can dream *toodles*

Project Birthday 2013 (Part 1)

Another long overdue post on the munchkins birthday celebration :p

12 December 2013: Iman and Ranya's Birthday

Lan was away for work on the date of Iman and Ranya's 2nd birthday, since we managed to celebrate earlier on, I bought the twins a chocolate cake from Village Grocer for them to cut at home. Loving their expression when I brought out the cake, they were estatic :) 
Ranya trying to pick on the chocolate slivers :) 

Iman happy face. MasyaAllah that smile, gets to my heart everytime...

We bought the gift for school and party favours wholesale from GM Klang at a very reasonable price. We wanted something the kids can enjoy and use. Again we managed to go "jajan" free this year. We got a mixture of Princess Sofia/Tinkerbell/Disney Princess things for the girls. For the boys Ryan chose Avengers and Spiderman stuff. We bought some bags, stationary sets, puzzles, playdoh and packet cakes to complete the gift bags. Hope the kids enjoyed it...

20 December 2013: Ryan Daniel's Birthday Celebration @ Taska

Ryan wanted to celebrate his birthday in school with his friends for as long as I remembered. At first Lan and I thought of just supplying the party favours, but Ryan begged for a cake. A Superman cake to be precise :p Since we already ordered a personalized Batman cake for his birthday celebration in KFC, I told him "NO WAY" as I do not want to spend so much on birthday cakes in ONE month. 
He tried to persuade me to bake the cake for him instead but I was really busy that week and the oven was a bit nuts so that didn't happen :p Ryan finally settled for a small chocolate cake from Wondermilk which he and I jazzed up with MnMs, lollipops and sprinkles instead.

Looks so yummy, kan?

Hehehe all up and ready to bring his cake to school

Celebration pictures taken by his teachers

Cute... love the kids expression :)

He was so happy he came back and told me it was so much fun, hugged me tight and said "Ryan sayaaaanngg mummy" heheh After that he asked for another birthday celebration "facepalm"

Anyway we also did a doa selamat for the kids and to give thanks for 2013 blessing at our surau :) Ryan was so excited to follow atuk and daddy for his "doa selamat birthday" and even did his Maghrib and Isyak prayers at the surau. Balik tu terus cerita "mummy tadi kan tok imam tu cakap Ryan comel, tapi Ryan handsome kan? mana ada comel, tu untuk budak kecik je" hahah Ryan... Ryan...

"Ryan nak pakai baju syeqal beli kat kelantan boleh tak, mummy??"

Will upload pics from our KFC Triple Birthday Celebration soon...
