          Ayisha & Aliyya's birthday picnic

          Our daughters, Ayisha turned 4 on 6th march and Aliyya, 2, on 22nd February this year.

          Our earlier plan was to have a picnic at our regular picnic spot, Sungai Congkak. But some of the guests are not familiar with the route, so we finally decided it was best to have the birthday celebration near to our home. So, next to the pool it was. Here are some of the photos of the day.

          Everything was done d.i.y to match the 'Jungle animals' theme. Most of the decorations are ones we already have in our home. Others are bought at discounted rate. I spent about a week hunting for items for the favor packs. I love the thrift shops and RM1.99 stores, and even small and not so popular bookshops. If you look hard enough, you could find hidden treasures. We gave out wooden puzzles and pencils or crayons with animal prints for the older kids and animal soft toys coin purses and mini animal story books for the toddlers.

          We had homemade chocolate on wooden sticks, homemade pudding and jelly for desserts and sweet treats bags. For a personalized look, I printed animals cartoon on sticker papers. Guests are welcome to fill up the treat bags on their own and secure those with wooden pegs, which I had glued, personalized tags a few days earlier.

          Other personalized items are mugs and t-shirts for the birthday girls.

          Thank you, my sister Basyira, for the birthday cake, my girlfriends, Darlene & Arneeda for homemade nasi lemak & pudding, and Fatimah, my sister-in-law, you've been a great help.

          To Amsyar the Superboy & Ryan the junior Tarzan, thanks for gracing our party.

          Last but not least, to our guests, we appreaciate your coming to our small and humble celebration.
