Pablo's Birthday party on New Year's Eve

Juan and Pablo, the two strange guys had won over my heart on Thanksgiving 2006. Yes, they came a long way from Spain to visit their relative and I couldn't understand how slowly yet deeply we became friends -- better to say "GOOD FRIENDS". My gang and I had a real blast on Thanksgiving 2006 with these two Hispanic guys. Days passed by since then we didn't have even a telephonic conversation. And this the time we all are missing Juan and Pablo.

Would you call this to be a power of friendship or the call of the souls? Right when I was deeply in the thoughts of those golden moments that we spend together with Juan and Pablo, my phone buzzed all on a sudden. I was really struck with great surprise to hear Pablo's voice on the other end. He wanted me to share the special moments with him on his birthday on the New Year's eve.

It was really an awkward situation for me although I have always wanted to go the Juan's place and have a break for a couple of weeks. But flying off to Spain at this moment is really tough for me as I'm not financially strong enough to bear such a big expense. It's going to be a perfect blast in the New Year birthday party of Pablo and it's hard to miss it also. All I need to do is to make him understand my condition. Probably wishing him Happy New Year is the first step to melt the ice. Wish him a Happy Birthday may be the second step. I'm really worried if this would work at all!

Celebrating 18th birthday With Cinderella Theme

If you are going to be 18 years old, I know that you're planning for a grand birthday party. If your budget is not that much of a constraint, you can go for a Cinderella birthday party theme. It's a perfect way to celebrate because you are going to step into a special phase of life. The world should now know how beautiful you are. Make sure that you are going to be wished with lots of wonderful birthday wishes by inviting lots of people. You can even tell them the party theme and have them dressed up as different characters from Cinderella - you can have a costume ball!

Get yourself prepared with some of the specialized costumes for your birthday. The sooner you plan the better, because you should have enough time on your hand to search for the right birthday party favors for yourself. Get your birthday decorations according to the theme.

Dress: You should dress yourself up as Cinderella in a beautiful white gown with a long trail, septer, gloves, crown and obviously a classy pair of shoes. Don't forget about the Cinderella tiara and jewelry.

Horse: If you want to be extravagant you can rent a white horse and carriage – with a driver so your friends can ride around. This would be great to photograph and preserve the memories.

Birthday Party Decoration: Decorate the house in pastel white and pink. Colored papers, streamers and balloons will give an aesthetic touch to your decoration. Place them anywhere that strike your fancy. Choice of colors is very important out here. For Cinderella themed decoration use colors like white, light pink, faint blue, lavender and faded cream. Try having Cinderella table cloths with matching napkins, plates and centerpiece decors.

The decorations should make your little guests feel that they have walked into a real fairy tale world.

Birthday Invitation : The mode of invitation should be in accordance to the party theme. Try sending invitation a couple of weeks before the party. Buy some Invitation cards that should be of any of the Cinderella colors. Chose a perfect font like the Old English font and write the invitation like royal invites.

The King wishes to invite you on Princess ---- 18th Birthday party.
Place: ...........
Date : ......; Time: .......

Birthday Cake: Order a castle cake. A regular birthday cake may not be appropriate for the Cinderella themed party so have more fun with a cake that looks like a castle!

Cinderella's Ball: Don't forget the Cinderella ball. A Cinderella party is worth meaningless without a royal Cinderella ball! Play the soundtrack from Cinderella and waltzes so that your guests can enjoy waltzing around. They must freeze on hearing the chime of the clock when it strikes 12!

Cinderella Party Favor: This is again very important. You can strike your special guests with sudden surprise by giving them cute Cinderella favor as a token of your gratitude for their presence on your very special day. You can fill up the cute little pink organza with gourmet cookies and some chocolates. A pink rose with that would just be a real blast.

Tips on taking great pictures at kids birthday party

I was at Dave's place last weekend and enjoyed a good amount of time talking about things here and there and playing chess. I have no clue how to play chess, I just move the pieces. While playing, I got to know from Dave, who's a good photographer, how to photograph kids at birthday parties. I didn't know there was so much to it!

I'm sharing with you what Dave shared with me:

1)Kid's Perspective -- Don't be intimidated by the camera. Even if you just know how to click a button it's good enough. All you need is to have a camera - digital cameras are of course the easiest. You don't need to be a technical expert. The most important thing is to get the child's perspective. Get down low while taking the snap of the children, so that the lens is at the level of the subjects - in this case kids. It would be the biggest mistake if you take shots standing. You can show the point of view of kids this way.

2)Shooting Angles – It's a good idea to take the snaps from different shooting angles in a mix and match basis. Just stand up on a table and take a snap for the whole group partying. The next shot can be a close up – getting down, looking up the kids closely.

3)Illumination – If the party is indoor, make sure you have enough lights. It's needed to get perfect result. If your camera has white balance, make sure you set that up before shooting. This applies to digital cameras and the colors should come out fine. Consult your camera's manual for this. Dave is really good with lights. He says that artificial lights usually leave your shots with undesirable tinges like florescent lights will give a green tinge. So the trick is all about setting the White Balance Controller properly.

4)Party Details-- Don't shoot in unplanned way. Focus on the party details. Some of the shots are best taken before the guests arrive, for instance the shot of the cake, decoration, party table and the birthday kid with his/her mom. You can capture all of the important moments by knowing how it is planned to run. So planning the party is really important.

5)Shooting Before and After Party: It is really amazing to see how a silent room turned into bustling a party hall with kids partying and dancing and again turned into a silent room with things scattered here and there. You can create a short story with your lens.

If you're planning to invite guests over, you can use these beautiful birthday invitation ecards so you have some guests ready to be shot! (No pun intended.) Make sure you have your camera ready with lots of film if you're using a film camera or batteries charged and memory sticks ready. It's easier to delete photos than not having enough space to capture all the beautiful moments.

The other day, when I was having my dinner over looking at the sparkling Biscayne Bay, I found a group of friends gathered on the beach for a friendly birthday get together. It was dark, but the spirits were really high, accentuated by neons of the surrounding, sparkling ocean and not forgetting the dazzling fireworks that they were enjoying on the beach. The merriment was in tune with the glorious fireworks.

But in the passing of a moment the fun turned into tears and screams. One of the party goers found herself victimized by an accident, she was badly burnt and was taken to the hospital -- Jackson Memorial Hospital probably.

So play safe with fireworks on birthdays and any other occasions. All my good wishes to you if today's your birthday.

Cakes, fun and birthday are inseparable parts, that we cannot deny. But how good will it be if fireworks are introduced in the birthday celebration? Ok, now I cannot resist my temptation to show you something wondrous that adorned the dark sky with colors and blaze flashes.

Visualizing myself on my 50th birthday

Ok, now it wouldn't be a bad idea to visualize myself on my 50th birthday! When the guests were standing round the table and Dave's mom was blowing off those 50 candles, I was thinking of whether I'd be able to put them off all by a single blow, when I'd turn 50. What all would I want my spouse and my children to say about me on the very special day? How would my place be adorned? What all would I have in the menu for my special guests? Oops!!

Well, I would like to invite all my childhood friends on my 50th birthday party and have a grand enjoyment ... me, my family and my friends. A picnic, I mean. The menu would include a special ice cream, specially prepared by my spouse with love and care. Hot dogs cannot be forgotten ..... I like it very much. Other items in the menu would be as per the choices of my wife and children. I would want my children to take the responsibility of inviting guests and arrange things for the party and would like to buy surprise gifts for my darling, my children and my special guests. How's that?

Perfect Birthday Gifts -- A Tough Deal For Me

Oops! It has always been the toughest task for me, coming up with perfect gifts for birthdays -- especially the milestone birthdays. Stepping on to 50 years of age is about marking a place in this world, making the dreams come true.

But I was so confused when I went to a local gift mall to buy a gift for Dave's mom on her 50th birthday. I spent long two and a half hours, looking for a perfect gift and returned back, wasting too much of time and energy. Flowers have always allured me a lot. So I went to the party with a large bouquet of 50 roses. The idea was not bad but I was looking for something different.

I'd appreciate if someone help me out with some milestone birthday gift ideas.

My friend Justin wants to plan for a surprise 50th birthday party for her father and wanted some original fun ideas. She wants to go for a sort of a theme, but the "over the hill" has been in so much of use that its really a boring theme for her ... so for me too. So we planned to reject it.

I suggested her to go for "back to the teen", a typical theme that I found when Dave threw a birthday party to celebrate his mom's 50th birthday the last year. It was a good idea and not very common. He had 1950's theme. The invitation read :

"Let me let you know
my mom's approaching the 50 years milestone.
I would like you to be our guest
on my mom's 50th birthday party
We'll be going back to 50s on this special day!"

He encouraged the guests to come dressed in 50s fashion and he also had purchased a few cheap stuffs so his mom could dress herself in 50s style. She was in white canvas shoes and dressed herself with clothes in funky shades and notably the bright red lipstick.

Most of the gifts were related to 50s style and the most lovable gift was presented by Dave's father. An antique wrist watch of 50s fashion. Wow!

John is a perfect example of a Virgo native I have ever seen, and I simply like him, as his nature has impressed me a lot. John is one of my Virgo friends, whom I know for 10 long years. I've been maintaining a close friendship with him and all that I came to know about him is that he has a modest character and quite diligent, methodical and self -sufficient. He's very practical , yet active and flexible. Most interestingly, I always feel the peaceful aura whenever I am with John. You know why ? Because his prudent and intelligent attitudes have always spread the fragrance of trust and honesty.

Birthdays are the time for celebration, cakes, balloons, gifts, friends, family & fun ! How about celebrating the special day of your folks & friends showering them with lotta warm wishes? there's nothing to feel bad really, if you are staying far away from your Virgo friends. Just scoop some time out of your busy schedule and send some of the cutest and nicest ecards to show them that you remember their birthdays are not out of your mind even if they are out of your sight.

August 25th we will be celebrating John's birthday with a hip hop party. I've freaked out with a wonderful, yet an unusual idea of what to do. An astrology party!! And yes, I believe it would be a great hit out there and John has liked this idea. It would be an experiment with my idea -- huh! I have already been to the local dollar store .... a good place to buy supplies. I'm planning to buy some unusual decors.

Birthday Party Invitation

Although many of my friends do not celebrate their birthdays, but I think that every birthday is special and hence deserves to be celebrated with dear and near ones. I feel that invitation for the special occasions like birthday should also be special.

Invitation is an art that involves a series of steps, starting from selecting a invitation card to selecting the font to choosing the words.... Remember that sometimes people would only want to attend your birthday party if it sounds exciting and interesting.

Sparkling Wishes ! Wish him / her an outta world celebration.

You can celebrate the day, beating the heat, with lots of coffee ice creams. Here's an easy recipe for you ..


  • 5 egg yolks

  • Double cream milk – 1 ½ cup

  • Condensed milk – 1 large can

  • Sugar – ¾ cup

  • Whole Coffee Bean – 1 1/2 cups

  • Vanilla Extract -- ¼ teaspoon full

  • Finely Ground Coffee -- ¼ teaspoon full.

  • A pinch of Salt


  • Mix thoroughly the milk, sugar, whole coffee beans, salt, and 1/2 cup of the cream in a medium saucepan and heat it until it is quite warm and steamy .... don't boil. Once the mixture is warm, remove from the heat, cover it and let steep at room temperature for an hour.

  • Now pour the remaining 1 cup of cream into a medium size bowl, set on ice over a larger bowl. Set a mesh strainer on top of the bowls and keep aside.

  • Put the milk and coffee mixture to heat again on medium heat, until again hot and steamy ... don't boil. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks together and pour the heated milk and coffee mixture into the egg yolks slowly, whisking it constantly. Scrape the warmed egg yolks back into the saucepan.

  • Stir the mixture constantly for 10 minutes over medium heat with a heatproof, flat-bottomed spatula, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula.

  • Pour the custard through the strainer and stir it into the cream. Press on the coffee beans in the strainer to extract as much of the coffee flavor as possible and discard the beans then. Mix in the vanilla and finely ground coffee, and stir it till it cools down.

  • Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it.
