Faaz 3rd Birthday

Praise to Allah SWT our Faaz Naqi has turned 3 years old earlier this month (09.01.2012) :). At first, we thought of having small family dine-out as a celebration but the planned changed when his grandparents (my in-laws) volunteer to do a small birthday party at USJ...lucky Faaz! ;) We had the birthday celebration on Sunday, 8th January 2011. The theme was: Angry Birds..

Most of the preparations were done by my in-laws including the guest list. The only thing I was in-charge of was the birthday theme as well as the birthday cake. Few months before approaching 3, Faaz has begun to understand about birthday and birthday celebration. Every time we celebrate a family member's birthday, he will asked when will be his turn and told us what he wanted for his birthday; balloons, birthday cake and presents! :) Because of this, although the party was very small I made an effort of doing a little bit of deco, to make the party more lively :)

I always admired all the creative and hardworking mommies who are so good when it comes to their children's birthday party deco. Some even did all out according to the themes..I'm impressed! With the commitment of taking care of two babies, time limitation, lack of creativity and a tight budget (hehe :P), I can only came out with these...

The birthday invitation..

I opt for simplicity in my design (in another word: lack of creativity..hihihi)

The party hat..

Faaz asked for a party hat but he was delighted when I bought him a birthday crown instead. He said, he's the king of the birthday...hehehe :)

The table deco

Simple banners that I designed as a table deco since we don't have a wall to deco...ok la ni ek? :P

The balloons...

Instead of the normal balloons, I opt for the angry birds balloons. Imagine how much attention I attracted as I walked all over Pyramid with those...demi Faaz ku sayang :D
Fadzil changed the thick thread that hold the balloons to thin invisible wires to make a floating angry bird effect ;)

The tag...

Simple Angry Bird food tag
(forgot to snap the photos of the rest of the tags)

The costume...
Since it's a small party, we figured out casual look was the best for our children.
Faaz chose the Red Angry Bird t-shirt himself while the twins both in Orange Angry Birds rompers.
Simple and matched the theme ;)

The birthday cake/cuppies

Seriously, the cake was one of the last thing that I ordered.
Been so occupied that I don't have time to surf the net for online bakery shop that can make a nice Angry Bird cake so when I saw some nice angry bird cakes at Cookie Box @ Empire, I quickly placed the order.
This time we opt for a 3D cake (fondant) + buttercream cuppies for something different.
I just let Sue design the cake with her creativity and voila! thanks Sue! :)

Everything is soo simple, right? Jadila for a small birthday party :) The best thing was, Faaz was so excited and showed appreciation on the small effort I made...

He was soo happy see the printed invitation card the day I brought it home that he ran towards the kitchen to see my mom, showed her the card and said, "Tok Mak, you must come to my birthday party, ok?" :)

Paling best, when he saw me decorating the living hall few hours before his birthday, he jumped with excitement and said, "You are shooo cute lah Mommy!" Awwwwwwhhhh *melting*

Feel sooo blessed! :)

The party started at sharp 4pm with the presence of our close family and close family friends.

Sincere apologies dear friends for not inviting you guys to the party. InsyaAllah someday, when we finally move to our own place, we'll surely invite all of you to come and celebrate with us :). Twinnies were in deep sleep when we were about to cut the cake so we just left them to sleep...zZZ. That explained why there's only 3 of us in most of the photos... (not that we left them tau! :P)

Let's the photos do the story telling of the singing and the candle-blowing part ;)

Faaz stunned when he finally got to see his 3rd birthday cake! <3

About to blow the 3 candles... :)

Us helping Faaz to blow the candles..hihihi

blow, blow, success!! :)

The proud birthday boy ;)

Faaz trying his best to cut the cake...

and later pose...and pose!

The twins finally woke up while we were enjoying the food and the cake. Lucky me, they enjoyed the company from everyone that they did not asked for their milk2 instantly. So it's their turn to pose and pose while both of them were in a good mood! :)

Me and my cuddly girls...<3!

Us 5 With My family :)

and 5! <3 :)

That's pretty much how Faaz celebrated his 3rd birthday. Now that he's 3, we can see how much he has grown for the past years and we are so thankful for 'this gift', thank you, Allah. May Faaz continue to grow healthily, happily, wisely and may he be a good caliph on earth, insyaAllah.

This year, we bought a bike as Faaz's birthday present. I was skeptical at first as Faaz shown no interest in cycling his tricycle at home, worrying that he might not have the passion for the bike as well. I was wrong, with just 3x training (less than 2 weeks) with his Daddy, Faaz can now cycle on his own! Bravo son!! Cayalah Daddy!! :)

Before I ended this entry, Faaz wanted me to tell how thankful and happy he was to all
uncles/aunts/cousins/friends who was kind enough to wish him "Happy Birthday" via our Facebook wall, twitter and this blog...and also thank you to family members who was present during the party. Faaz enjoyed all the toys!! :)

"Faaz sayaaang everyone!" :)

Hihi, angry birds is one of his favourite game. Since angry bird fever is still on, I figured out why not take this as a theme. nak cari props for deco pun senang. everywhere ada angry bird. yg limitednya cuma fulus la..hihi :)
