  1. Hi……I am a mother of a5year old boy…his birthday is on 15 September..I am from Jaisalmer ,Rajasthan…a place where we don’t get latest and exciting stuff…could you please suggest an idea for how to decorate and what all games I could make them play….and what can be included in menu

    • Yes Ankita .. Let all the babies and kids have dress code of smileys.. Tshirts with big smiles on it .. Give a smiley tag for everyone who attends. Make a photo with a smiley and let children pick the smiley blindfolded. Make smileys out of potato for the menu along with lemon water, ice creams also in the shape of smileys 🙂 As return gifts give everyone piggy banks and pencil pouches in the shape of smileys which are plenty available in the market.

      Cake you can make a big smiley in any color you want 🙂 Hope this helps …

  2. Each theme is more awesome than other. It’s really hard to choose one for another. Still scrolling through different themes you’ve presented the rainbow drew my attention more. Perhaps I know my daughter loves colors much and this would definitely make her more happier. It’s very attractive indeed.

  3. All the ideas are very good. But I think little difficult to implement it in India.I have experienced that all the kids makes lot of halla-gullas during birthday parties. It is very difficult to control them. ………
