Hello everyone! How are y’all doing? Can you believe it’s been an entire year since I posted about our trip to San Diego when Kai was born? Time flies wayyy too fast sometimes. If you follow me on snap you would’ve seen the behind the scenes of the party we threw for his 1st birthday at Sagan banquet hall in Mississauga. Talk about a fun night. My brother & sister in-law went with a Hawaiian theme for the party since they are obsessed with Hawaii. Who can blame them! I’m just looking forward to having a crash pad in Maui one day haha 😉
Onto the party! The lobby was decorated with Kai’s monthly birthday pics. Will never get over how adorable he is. We had so much fun getting ready for the party. I did my mom and Dipti’s makeup and we all got our hair done by Fefe in Milton. It had been so long since we had good quality girl time with Dipti so it was really nice to catch up 🙂
Derek and I greeted the guests as they came in. So fun to see everyone and catch up! The kids were all given lei’s to wear to go with the theme. So fun.
The hubs and I. Yes I’m one of those cheesy folks that likes to be somewhat matching so I made sure he wore a grey shirt lol. He’s such a good sport! I wore MAC Girl About Town lipstick, the Modern Renaissance palette on my eyes and NYX Wicked lashes in Exposed. Have you guys tried NYX lashes? They’ve got a great range of styles and so inexpensive!! I got Fefe to put a bunch of extensions in my hair as it’s been a minute since I had a full head of hair. It felt really nice.
The tables were decorated with Hawaiian flowers and green napkins to tie in the theme. Don’t you just love a themed party? So festive & fun!
My parents in front of the backdrop. Dan & Dipti wanted everyone to take fun pics so they had all these props and we put up this backdrop.
The man of the hour!! Love that he wore an Indian outfit. He looked like a little prince! Fun fact- Dan & Dipti’s wedding had a purple & gold theme, cute little tie in.
The Hawaiian dancers. They really got the party going! All the kids gathered around to watch and then participated. The dancers did a great job of including the kids and getting them to do fun dances. Dan and Kai had a little solo bit at the end. Kai was such a good sport! My brother is not a little guy, he’s actually 6’4″ and Kai was not scared at all being up so high on his shoulders.
The fam! All in all it was such a fun night. We didn’t do a lot of dancing as most of us hadn’t seen each other in a while so it was a lot of talking (& drinking of course!) but we all had such a great time. Family parties are the best!
Here are my cousins Seema, Sweety, her daughter Jasleen and Preethi. Love Jasleen’s pose in this pic 😉
My mom and my cousin Alisha Sood. Alisha was one of the finalists on Masterchef Canada! She is such an amazing cook and did a great job on the show. We are all so proud of her. If you haven’t watched her season, you have to! She handled herself so well 🙂
Until the next one..
