Birthday Playdate

This year we wanted to celebrate Miss Kiki's birthday a little bit more special than the last few years. She hasn't had a party with outside school since her third birthday. Instead of hosting another party, this year we opted for a simple playdate at home.

As a cake alternative, I ordered these yummy macarons from Liel Patissier. The macaron stack used 2 dozens of assorted macarons and she was so nice to print me the banner to go with them.

For lunch I ordered the usual Nasi Tumpeng from Regina's Bakery. We regularly order from them for events and this time my friend there gave the whole tray as a present for Miss Kiki. How nice! Thank you so much for your generosity!!

So I had about a dozen girls playing in the house, and it seemed like they all had a good time. It took some time for them to warm up to a new place and new friends (this is a mix of friends from the different classes and schools), and it was raining in the morning.

When Miss Kiki found out that I had ordered Nasi Tumpeng for her playdate, she requested pasta to serve to her friends. So I made spaghetti bolognese for the kids and it was a hit! Miss Kiki was spot on after all.

The rain finally stopped so after lunch the kids were able to go in the trampoline.

We also had Ice Jelly drink from Kayu Manis, courtesy of my friend V. Thanks a lot, dear!

Then we made a volcano.....

And we blew bubbles...

Then another friend came....

And more friends came!

I forgot to take a picture of the heart shaped macarons I ordered for the kids to take home... they are from Dulce Bene and are also yummy. Well, I managed to take a picture of the only two left....

And here is the picture of more wrist wallets!

My back was sore for a few days afterwards, but overall it was great! 

Thank you all who came and made Miss Kiki's day extra special!
