Surprise Birthday Party!

I’m sure you all know by now that I always give Hemayal a surprise birthday party a couple of days before or after her actual birthday. 

This time around I told her 2 days after her birthday that we need to go for a meeting and fortunately we had an event to attend the very same night which means that she’ll be ready so that I don’t have to hear that she wasn’t ready for the pictures for the rest of my life, lol.

I took her to BLT where our friends had already organized everything with the help of Dream Creations Islamabad.

I called Sobia (Owner of Dream Creations) a night before the birthday since everything was very last minute and she literally took control of EVERYTHING. I told her to decorate the table whatever way she likes it & I think that was the best decision ever since the balloons, flowers, decoration pieces, backdrop, Lights, everything was P E R F E C T.

How I planned a Birthday Surprise!

It’s really hard to plan a surprise birthday party when you’re a desi person who lives, goes out, breaths and sleeps with the person they’re planning the surprise for & it gets 5x more difficult while inviting everyone on the same day and time because everyone has their very own curfew days and times. Guess that’s just what makes it more challenging and fun!

Here’s how I planned Milo’s Surprise Birthday Party ( someone had to make up for her pampering me all the time).

Step #1 Venue
Its super hard to choose a venue specially when you live in the twin cities as half of the people find Islamabad more convenient and half of them find Rawalpindi more convenient.

We (her friends & I)  went back and forth deciding wether to do it somewhere out or on our rooftop & we FINALLY agreed on throwing the birthday at 10 eleven lounge (Street 22, F8/2 Islamabad). It’s a beautiful place which consists of live bbq, bonfire, open sitting place with sheds on top. It was just the type of place we had in mind & thanks to Zeeshan we faced no difficulty in booking it.

Step #2 Decor
After deciding the place its time to design the decor & OMG THE OPTIONS AND IDEAS ARE UNLIMITEDDDD but they also tend to get expensive at times. Since I was away on work it was really difficult for me to meet event managers for the decor so I decided to settle for the last minute balloon decor & it pretty much did the job.

Step #3 Menu
A birthday is all about the food and thats basically the most difficult part to decide, Khana Kya hai bhai? It’s really hard to satisfy everyone when it comes to food but we desi’s always have a way out and in this situation it was none other than the evergreen & delicious desi food platter + something light & non desi (sandwiches and fries) a perfect blend of the both Worlds.

Cake –

As delicious as a fondant cake looks it always goes to waste so we always prefer a regular butter cream cake that looks and tastes beautiful & most importantly doesn’t go to waste.

Step #4 Photographer 
Ab sab tyar houn aur tasweerain na houn? C’mon now! Without questioning myself or anyone I straightaway called Ali from the photoneers and Wallah my photography tension was solved & thanks to the photoneers our pictures turned out just the way we wanted!
