Continuing from the previous post, this is how Sean celebrated his birthday in school. Now Sean is finally making friends in school so he actually wanted to have a party. I contemplated doing something in a Fun-rama, a huge indoor playground. But by the time he told me he wanted a party, there was so little time to prepare...and most kids live near the school and I wasn't sure how many kids would turn up in the city on a weekend. Okay okay, I didn't want the stress...maybe next year.
So I told Sean we'll bring in cupcakes and goodie bags to school and he was happy with that. I was really excited when I found these cupcakes in a small shop some 10 minutes drive from my place. They are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! I didn't care what they tasted like but today I ate one (okay, a couple!) and they are amazingly delicious too. Lovely butter cream and cool fluffy vanilla cake. Perfect!
Another picture. When I first saw these cupcakes, I fell so much in love with them. It feels so magical :)
Close-ups. Aren't they delightful?
Another couple of pictures taken with my G11.
His friends went Oooh and Aaaah, yes, even the boys. One boy told Sean, I wish it was your birthday again tomorrow so we can have this again. A girl said, I wish it was your birthday EVERYDAY so we can have this everyday. :) The girls were eyeing the full-rainbow cupcakes, which came in a couplet. There were 4 of these, ie, 8 cupcakes.
For party favors, I packed each kid a small blue bag of goodies and gave them a photo holder, but instead of a photo, I clipped on a little heart instead.
The photo holder's base is actually like those snow-globe thingies, when you shake it, the fruits inside move together with the stars and flakes.
In the goodie bag was a mini toblerone, 2 different types of jellies, a marshmallow, Haribo gummies and Chuppa-chup lolli. I didn't want to stuff too much sweets lest I get complaints from parents :P
Happy Birthday to you....
Sean hands out the little gifts...
and the goodie bags.
The kids sit back and enjoy the delicious cuppy cakes.
And my baby's 8 and happy :)
