Her First Birthday Party!

May 25, 2009

Last weekend my youngest niece Ashu (Tvisha) turned 1 year old and we all had blast including her. Though intially I had doubts whether she will be able to enjoy her birthday party but I was wrong. She was the center of attraction and was enjoying every bit of it πŸ˜‰ We had magic show, kids games, more hangama with cake cutting followed by dinner!

It reminded me of my birthday celebrations as a kid. I used to dream a month before my birthday and dream of only gifts.. hehehehe! And the birthday arrangements also used to be vastly different. I was actually surprised to see colossal options available now to celebrate kiddies’ birthday! There are special shops dedicated to birthday parties shopping and you will be amused to see innovation in this field too πŸ™‚ Oh I was really fascinated to see special covers (not gift wrappers) like polythene bags but not just that… they are much more colorful with Cinderella, Winnie the pooh and many other cartoons printed on it. And these bags are used for return gifts. (Return gifts – for which other kiddie come to your party.. hehehehe)!

I felt so dumb to see myself amused with so many options. Actually when it came to cake cutting, I was given one rod and my brother asked me to burst it! I took it in my hand and started struggling with it!! I asked my 5 yr old niece Ishu to help me. And guess what – All children including Ishu jumped on me and took the rod and burst it in seconds! Oh I felt like a generation behind.. hehehehe!!

The best part was the magic show. Master Karun, I guess most of us know him, a 15 year old kid who has also appeared in Bournvita Confidence Challenge contest, stunned us by his magical powers! I was awestruck to see such a small kid performing with such finesse. I was completely engrossed in the magical acts when suddenly one thing drew my attention. I saw most of all ladies gathered in one corner undisturbed by surroundings and chatting (I will not say gossiping ;-)) happily and most of all gentlemen gathered in another corner enjoying their friendly talks! Suddenly I found myself with few more elderly children like me along with all children enjoying the magic show!!! And I could not stop grinning πŸ™‚

In the end, we distributed all the return gifts to our small guests and were happy to see their excited faces on receiving the gifts! It was 11:00 P.M. by the time we all finished dinner and we were completely exhausted. I had the hangover and was still thinking of the party on my way back home. I started wishful thinking – “I should have born during this time.. so many lovely lovely gifts and options galore as a kid!”, when suddenly I remembered my blog article Summer without vacation and thanked god that atleast now I am out of this herd and to some extent out of the grilling competition!! I then just laughed on my silly thought!

    Just attended a first birthday party for my niece, so I know how special and exciting an occasion it is. The name of your blog is one of my favorite Pavese quotes. Good luck!

    I also attended a magic show in a birthday party of my colleague’s kid. It’s fun! Wish I also have some magic wand!
