Nehal’s Birthday Ben 10 Theme Party
I have received requests to post pictures of Nehal’s birthday party. I am posting a few photos of Nehal’s 6th birthday Ben 10 theme party we celebrated in August, 2008.
The images used in the invitation and thank you cards were downloaded from the internet. I designed the cards and the printer did a great job. For the thank you card, Ben Tennyson’s face was replaced with Nehal’s, thanks to Photoshop.
The Ben 10 dinner plates, glasses, stickers, badges, blow outs were shipped from US by my sister who ordered them online from this store. There were different take home gifts for the girls and boys.The remaining gifts were bought in Vizag.
The Ben 10 table cover was also shipped from US along with take home gifts. The highlight was a large digital print, 4 ft by 5 1/2 ft, of Ben 10 with his team (downloaded the image from internet) that was framed and put up on the wall close to the cake table. The Ben 10 alien figures were painted on 4 ft plastic sheets that were pasted along the walls of the hall.
Both the cakes were ordered at a local baker. The one below was made with an edible Ben 10 foil.
It was a party for over 125 people with 50 kids and 75 adults and we arranged at a hotel which served good food. The party started at 6 and ended at 10. I arranged a tattoo trap and beauty corner (for the little girls). My friend did the emceeing and conducted games both for adults and kids (individual and team games) which were fun. The decorations were yellow and green balloons and the chef tried to follow a green and yellow theme food-wise. There was ballooning too (swords, flowers and poodle).
The menu was as follows:
1. Welcome drink – fruit based
2. 4 appetizers – 2 veg + 2 non-veg – [kids & adults just loved all of them]
a) Spinach and Cheese dumplings
b) Vegetable lollipops
c) Chicken Winglets – Chinese style
d) Crispy Prawn – Chinese style
3. Chaat Counter
Bhel Puri, Papdi Chaat, Pani Puri
4. Live Dosa Counter
Masala Dosa and Plain Dosas (3 chutneys and potato curry)
5. Vegetable Hakka Noodles
6. Vegetable Manchurian in Hot Garlic Sauce
7. Curd Rice (with a couple of pickles, papad and sun-dried chillis) (on special request from two parents whose kids don’t eat much food outside their home and they requested for curd rice)
8. Desserts – Ice cream with Hot chocolate Sauce & Hot Jalebis (live counter) and of course the bday cake.:)
