T’s Second!

We celebrated T’s birthday on Saturday. It was something I was waiting for more impatiently than anyone. The whole theme was based on his favourite book, The way back home.  It’s a beautiful book about finding friends in the oddest places and flying into space! Conceptually T might be a little too young to grasp the depth of the book but he sure does love the characters ever so deeply. He has a current obsession for planes and martians and I was eager to indulge him!

The carrot cake, which was conveniently called the ‘space cake’ had stars on it and intergalactic dust orbiting around it. The food was suitable for all age groups and was accompanied with T’s favourite,  strawberry Iced tea.

    • Hey Arti, Thank you for your appreciation. The floor sheets were designed by me and I got them printed at a local printer. It’s super easy and a fun DIY project to take up. Barely takes any time too :)
