Ayden’s 1st Birthday Celebration in Malacca

Ayden finally turned ONE on the 31 August 2014. We had two celebrations to celebrate my little boy’s first birthday. One in my hometown Melaka and another in Darling’s hometown, Seremban. This post shall touch on the celebration in Malacca only. The one in Seremban will be posted in another post. 

I quite enjoyed the preparation for the party part in Malacca as I had fun with my dad and nieces decorating my parents’ house.

Ayden loves all the DIY animal theme decor I did for him.

I prepared some fancy animal themed snacks for the kids that proves to be such a hit! It’s a wonder how a little twist to a name can get the kids so excited! Lol!

I’m so grateful for them and also my parents and sis for helping out with this party. With Darling and I busy taking turns fussing over Ayden, we did not manage to do much. I even went to bed early as Ayden is already tired. They helped a lot in cleaning up and making sure all is well throughout the party. 

We actually bought giant bubbles to keep the kids entertained but due to all the ding ding dang dang, we forgotten to let them play >_<

Well that’s about it for the Malacca part. Thank you all for coming and I hope you all had a great time (if you are reading this lah).

Coming up next is a private dinner with the in-laws in Seremban :)

    Happy belated birthday to Ayden! He is truly blessed to have everyone coming together to celebrate his birthday. With the nice animals banner created by mommy and lots of catered and homemade jelly bear food.

    The jelly bears are so cute. Ayden’s grandmother has so much patience to make them.
