I'm finally 21 years old! Gosh, i can't believe i've stepped into the young adults category. It all feels so surreal. I'm scared but yet, excited (: Scared because it means i'd have to take more responsibilities & act like an adult. Excited because i can't wait to see what God has installed for me (: For i know, greater things are yet to come (:

Made several pinwheels & used it as a "guestbook" as suggested by Tash. Friends who came wrote their birthday wishes to me on a pinwheel. Pinwheel decorative papers were purchased from Papermarket.
P.S. I will be doing a post on how to make Pinwheels & some other decorative items (:
My halal catering was done by Glory catering $10/person. Min order of 30pax.
The food was delicious! Sadly i didn't get to eat much. So glad everyone loved the food.
Used plastic jars as drinking cups & the twins tied it with green & yellow ribbons so it wldn't look so plain. Striped straws are from Papermarket, the Rafflescity outlet.
My dessert table which i set up all by myself. Didn't want to spend so much money js for someone to decor a dessert table. Decided to do it on my own. So much cheaper!
"Sweets" banner is purchased from Typo. It comes in a box of several alphabets.
Tarts from Fancy delight at $15.60 for 12 pieces.
Egg tarts from Glory catering which tasted super awesome!!
Chocolate tart i made myself. Feedback i got from my friends were tt it was yummy or some said it was too sweet.
Muffins of diff flavors from Chocolate N' Spice, located at ShunFu. These are my fav muffins cause the texture is spongy & soft. It taste fresh & i light up instantly whenever my dad brings over a box of these wonderful muffins! It's tt good! By noon they are all sold out.
Fondue set i borrowed from R's uncle. Very grateful tt he cld lend it to me.
The huge speaker in Black was brought by Shu Xia. Hahaha damn awesome right?! I've never come across anyone's party who has such a hugeass speaker!
Used my pinwheels "guestbook" as a photo booth. I wanted to do a photo booth so badly! But i had no time to do so. Oh wells.

Birthday cake is done by Diamond Chefs. There was some hiccup with my cake, but i'm glad it was still given to me on time & looked presentable enough.
Initially it looked like tt. I wanted rosette pipings but unfortunately, the baker said the rosette pipings melted so she had to cover it w fondant. As i ordered Red Velvet, i knew tt fondant doesn't go well w red velvet even if there was cream cheese underneath it. But what to do right? What's done is done.
I wasn't happy w how it turned out. Got her to change the bow to a bigger one & in Turquoise. Not a fan of too much pink. She changed the Black lining in the middle of the cake to turquoise balls, which i'm super happy she did! Looks much better.
My complete cake w the beautiful candles i got from Cluny Court, located along Bukit timah rd. Nearest MRT is Botanical Gardens.
I felt damn awkward when everyone started singing to me 'Happy birthday'. Like i didn't know what to do?! Hahaha i'm actually quite a shy person when in large crowds!
Polaroids were purchased from Digital Rabbit. Each box of 10 were priced at $10 ech. It was the cheapest i cld find.
R purchased the helium gas tank which is said to be able to fill 35 balloons for $45. But we managed to fill 60+ balloons! Even had enough to suck in the helium! HAHAHA.
Balloon supplies or party related items can be purchased from Balloon Maniac, located at Blk 5022 Ang Mo Kio, Industrial park 2, #01-23, S569525. They close at 6pm everyday so be sure to get there earlier. I've been to several arty shops & at Balloon Maniac, their ballon prices are relatively cheap! Very worth it.
When we were packing up, everyone js stuck a pinwheel to Raihanah! Hahahahaha.
Loving my make up & colorful ear rings i got from Aldo.
Dress is from Lacepipe. Suited my Whimsical themed party perfectly, with a peek-a-boo centre which i loved very much (: Comfortable piece & i love the unique colors of the dress!
I had great fun at my party! Though i wish there were more pics taken of my birthday party decor. My photographer(nik) did not do a good job -__- I hardly hv any pics of the party which i am super pissed abt still. Anw, i appreciate everyone who travelled all the way down to my party & those who came with gifts. I am very grateful to all of you (:
