So we celebrated the first daughter’s anniversary. There were lots of wishes, and they changed almost every day. Fortunately, the child was satisfied, so that everything else is not important.
A rare holiday now costs without semi-professional animators who are dressed up in costumes of their favorite heroes of the birthday. Their responsibilities include entertaining children through contests. Often, the program includes making figures from balloons, bubble show, aqua-makeup, dancing.
I refused aqua make-up immediately, because on one of the holidays after painting the guests with one brush, all the children had to visit the ARC with a diagnosis of streptoderma.
At first, the daughter wanted a holiday based on the cartoon Jake and the pirates of Netlandia, then she wanted to see the Little Mermaid and Cinderella. But still won old love for the animated series about the fairies Winx. Moreover, we recently had a birthday party with her friend, where the fairies were animators. Therefore, my task was to find Leila and Stella.
The order of prices for the services of actors is different. Calling a dozen event agencies, I opted for one thing – a very courteous girl talked to me, and the price was close to the minimum. The hour of work of two fairies is now from 2000 to 3500r. (from 650 to 1000 UAH).
On the birthdays of other children, the daughter has more than once participated in cooking classes. They were gingerbread cookies, and pizza, and dumplings. Daughters like this process, so we decided to include it in the holiday program.
Our choice fell on cooking dumplings and lemonade. The children were dressed in aprons, sat down at the table, and were given rolling pins and bowls. Alas, this occupation attracted only girls. The boys all this time drove on scooters and indulged. It is a pity, of course, that discipline was not achieved. Moreover, the children were then hungry, and the dumplings turned out not so much.
At the end of the holiday, everyone was given diplomas confirming participation in the master class. Trifle, but nice.
As I wrote above, the main course implied dumplings. Ice cream enjoyed success, because a holiday took place on a summer terrace in hot weather. The main thing is to provide children with a large amount of drink, because in the heat the appetite is minimal.
For adults, the table was more abundant – salads, cold appetizers, hot, side dishes, etc. We have a wonderful company and I am very glad for every event that brings together many mothers. This time we had a bachelorette party with cold champagne and goodies.
This is a very important moment for the daughter. As with the animators, she was tormented for a long time by the problem of choice. That she wanted a portion of cakes with cherries, the cake with a figure in the form of a princess. Then we still agreed on the same Winx fairies.
Decorations made of mastic, though beautiful, but the taste and composition of them leaves much to be desired. Therefore, we chose the cake with a waffle picture, the cake – biscuit plus cream with fruits and berries. Honestly, the taste and composition of the daughter worried the least. The main thing is that all fairies are present on the cake. Anniversary so anniversary, we found such a cake.
By the way, there were 10 children at the festival, as many moms. A 3.6kg cake was more than enough, it was even enough to take home a few pieces to her husband and grandparents.
Many parents take off holidays on their own. Honestly, personally I didn’t manage any successful photos – children are constantly in motion, they are difficult to organize, and I want to give attention to everyone.
Therefore, for the second year already, I invite my friend’s godmother, he is an amateur photographer, for whom photography of children is a favorite hobby. For a nominal fee, he took us all the holiday.
To avoid disappointments and not to burden guests with wishes, I prepared the gifts myself beforehand. After all, I know better what my daughter will be glad of.
In advance, I bought a lot of beautiful dresses, shoes, swimsuit, nightgown, glasses. Before the holiday, she gave guests gifts in exchange for money. Everyone was satisfied.
I am glad that everything went as they say, without a hitch, without a hitch. A little upset by the fact that the boys were not interested in the culinary master class. But the main thing for me is that my daughter met with her favorite fairies, gathered her best friends and, I am sure, she will remember this holiday for a long time.
