Barney Birthday

First of all, I'm sorry for being an absent blogger for several days. I attended successive events which have kept me away from blogging. I'm back and eager to visit my favorite blogs.

Let me share a fun birthday we attended over the weekend. It was the 1st Birthday of hubby's niece and goddaughter, Yvaine. As you can see, the party theme was Barney and friends.

Personalized M&Ms (each M&M has the
celebrant's picture and personal message).

I attended a 1st birthday party as well recently and I am amazed at how well organized these children parties are nowadays. With personalized giveaways and loads of fun and entertainment in store for both the kids and the adults.

I guess, we have come a long way from the really simple birthday parties during my youth. Well that was eons ago hehehe :)

This birthday party must be every kiddos dream. So thoughtfully decorated :)

Personalized M&M's? That's a brilliant idea! I've seen a christening party where the giveaways were personalized chocolate bars, with specially-printed paper covers.

What a great party! I bet the kids had a blast. Love the McQueen hand painting. My littliest would've been in Heaven. He LOVES cars! How fun!

Looks like a lot of fun. Too bad I don't like Barney.

Looks like a fun time!
Where can we have those personalized M & M's made?

@Louann: Hubby's cousin ordered them from the States. I just don't know how much they cost.

Such a big event. I think the fun part is the painting, face or otherwise. What a joyous occasion. Belated Happy Birthday Yvaine!

wow! great party. and the giveaways are really nice.

1st birthdays are always it is celebrated as simple or as 'nice' as this one. the excitement are all the same. blessings to the little celebrant.

Now that looks like an amazing party! What detail. It will definitely be a birthday to remember.
