Clarisse, my princess, is our first born. She is super active and loves to explore new food, toys and the environment. Every day, she brings us joy unlike any other! 

Since the first birthday is a defining and memorable occasion for any young family, we decided to throw her a first birthday party. We styled the dessert table and put up the decorations by ourselves, with no help from any professional party planner.

Overall, it took me about one and a half months to plan and prepare for the entire birthday event. I was very satisfied with the outcome.

 

KidiParty: What was the theme of the party?

Carrie: The theme was bunny as Clarisse is a huge fan of bunnies. The decoration was all DIY-ed. Items such as the balloons, tassels, lightbox, LED lamps, party banner, party photo props, flower pom-pom and paper decorations fans were purchased from Daiso, CUBE-i and MR.DIY from Malaysia. They were of good quality and the prices were reasonable.

We also bought personalized family t-shirts with an adorable design and Tutu baby skirt from TeezBee, a Malaysian company. We chose the “Big Boss & Mini Boss family set” in light blue as it complemented our theme. TeezBee was very responsive to our messages and our order was processed quickly. We received the t-shirts within 1 week.

We decorated the gift bags with bunny stickers and each of them contained OREO cookies, London Roll strawberry flavour cake, marshmallows with strawberry filling, Smarties candies and Mentos Mint candies.

I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to my husband, sister-in-law and friends for helping out. They really helped out a lot. We actually managed to complete the setup of the room and dessert table within an hour!

Why did you choose to hold the party at Waterway Point's Party Room?

Waterway Point's Party Room was the perfect venue for us because the rental rate was reasonable and the party room facilities were very good. The facilities include tables, chairs, ladders, and a television. The room came with a pantry area with refrigerator, hot water dispenser and sink. It was well air-conditioned and very clean too.

What was the food catering like? Tell us more about the birthday cake too.

Our lunch came from On & On Diners, a Halal catering company with 9 years of service experience. We ordered the 10-course Oriental Lunch Buffet. The portion served was generous and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the spread. The staff were very patient, professional and responsible.

Although this was a bunny-themed party, we did not order a bunny birthday cake. Initially, we planned to have a custom-made strawberry bunny cake. However, the price turned out to be unrealistic. Hence, we bought a strawberry cake from PrimaDéli at Waterway Point instead. The cake did not disappoint. The texture was very soft and it tasted nice. Since it contained less sugar, it was ideal for both kids and elderly.

As for the other desserts, we made longan jelly cups and decorated them with ribbons. I purchased butterscotch muffins from Swee Heng 1989. The Ferrero Rocher chocolates, marshmallows with strawberry filling, Hello Panda, Yan Yan Stick and candies were bought from the supermarket. They were adorned with bunny stickers.

What kinds of entertainment were provided during the party?

We did not engage any professional entertainer. Instead, the kids played with the colourful balloons present at the party. They were also happy to receive the bunny gift bags.

Whose service(s) did you employ to capture the moments on that hectic day?

We did not hire any photographer. All the photographs and videos were captured by my husband and brother-in-law.

Were there any unforeseeable issues or surprises at the party?

We were glad that everything went smoothly during the party. The cake-cutting ceremony was definitely the highlight for all of us.

The only unexpected issue was the shortage of chairs and disposable cutleries. Lucky for us, there is a FairPrice supermarket in Waterway Point. We were able to replenish the cutleries. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about the chairs.

If you could turn back time, what aspects of the party you wish you could have focused more on?

I will probably reconsider getting a two-tiered bunny cake for my little princess. I also wish to engage a professional photographer to capture all the memorable moments at this party, especially the group photos with our guests.

Share some tips you have learned from this experience.

1) Order extra tables, chairs & request for more cutleries from the caterer.

2) Delegating tasks to friends and family members is beneficial.

3) Include some games or activities if you have many kids attending the party.

4) Colourful decorations are quite important for a child's birthday party.

Lastly, would you hold another birthday party in the future, and why?

This party was successful and I will definitely want to organize another birthday party next year!
