We had Amir's Batman & Robin 5th birthday party at the comfort of our home (read: mom's home). His birthday party was planned way before, but only materialised recently due to tight budget and time constraint. I actually wanted to ask my sis-in-law's brother (who is a pastry chef) to bake the cake and make hotel kinda-like desserts for the party but unfortunately he was not able to help coz he needs time to prepare and train for a contest that he had registered. Probably next time whenever he's available....(btw, he makes the best mushroom broucheese...and mini chocolate croissants...yum!).
I slept at 1 am the day before making the placeholder for the food and candy together with the set up and deco. It was really tiring but I enjoyed it so much. Walaupun tak all-out full blast party (read: buat kt Kids Zania, Jungle Gym or McD), buat kat rumah je tapi rasa seronok pulak berjinak-jinak ngan hobi baru I nih...chewahh...
For the deco, hubby designed a banner and he sent for printing. Gambarnya sama macam badge Amir so takdela lari konsep sangat. I borrowed his Batman comics dated back from 1995...(wah....).....and put at a corner as deco. Personalised mineral water was considered as a deco as well sebab we just a bought only a few of them. Amir has 3 Batman toys (courtesy of McDonalds) and that was it. So I used that as a deco too. I bought some lollipops, for deco as well.
Personalised mineral water
Plastic cutlery wrapped in Bat tissue (for kids)
The Batman stickers were made by my hubby so I just cut and paste them onto everything just to make the table look Batman-gy.....nasib tak tampal kat alas meja.....
The food, was awesome. My Cikdah made pulut kuning and rendang daging. She also made chicken curry for roti jala which my mom ordered. Mom also ordered our favourite kek lapis. The best part was, my mom made spaghetti...yummy!....(I was supposed to make them but mommy voluntered so, I was so happy!...ngeh ngeh.....)
Mini sausage rolls
My favourite satay
Kek lapis prune & asam manis
Candy and marshmallows
My friend E made mini apple crumble (extra sweet - just because I like it sweet). My sister in laws and brothers sponsored the satay Hj Samuri...yummerss!!!.....oh and yeah, I made tiramisu (hooray!...I made something also yeah....)....tapi takde gambar sebab tak sempat amik. Rasanya pulak over manisss...

I rented bouncy castle from a friend's friend but unfortunately I don't have the full picture here. It was 2.7 m x 2.7 m 1.8 m and the rental per day was RM250 (not inclusive of transportation charges). I think the kids had fun mostly because of this bouncy castle. Or else, sure boring diorang semua sebab I didn't plan any games for them.
Amir requested to have water balloons for fun so seronok tengok diorang main baling-baling.....heheheheh....
Overall, the party was a success except for one thing.....but lets just leave it for now....The most important thing is my Amir is happy.....and baby Amar was also happy...just look at the happy faces.....
