Vinay turned 1 on 7 September! To celebrate, my sister had decided to have his birthday party at home the following Saturday…
When we were kids, my sister, brother and I all had our birthday parties in the garden – they would be from 4pm to 6pm. Kids would run around screaming or kicking a football, getting very sweaty. At 5.30 a cake would be cut, the kids would all eat, return presents would be handed out, and everyone would go home. These days (about 20 years later), things are VERY different.
My sister had hired a party planner for the entertainment. They arrived on schedule and started setting up outside.
It was a hot day, and they worked very hard.
Inside, we were sorting out the toddlers’ play area and the balloons (until we ran out of helium).
The cupcakes arrived.
