21st Birthday Celebration - Floral Theme

Being able to invite friends and family whom walked together with me in my life to my 21st birthday is a blessed, it is the first ever birthday celebration held for me in my entire life and I am glad that it was a success. Firstly I want to thank every for attending, secondly my sponsors and my friends whom help out because without all of you this event wouldn't be a success. So lucky to have you all.

Got this DIY Album from Kikki K and had my sister to DIY it for me to be used as a guest book for my friends to send me their greetings. View more of my guest book here if you should be interested of the content.

Made this and printed out as a photo to frame it up for my reception table (inspired by google images) incase my guestbook is being neglected. Feel free to download it to use for your event if you want.

Karen whom I met during secondary school times

My friends since 2009, from an online game called AuditionSEA

Ordered my birthday cake from Mad4Bakes and also a gift from Karen to me, so much thanks

Boyfriend and team Balloon Empire brighten up the atmosphere at the roof by placing LED lights in the helium balloons and tied lightstick onto it, sadly no much people went upstairs.

Because I don't really like Chinese food therefore I ordered my catering from KG Catering where they have more variety of food and is really affordable.

I have chatter-box Zongyuan here at my party who was my supervisor when I was doing Guinness stout roving, pardon me for the nickname hehe

Decorations by L'Unique and friends from Photography. The girls gave me a DIY SLR Camera that I would never thought to own, I will be blogging about it soon after I get it fix.

Classmates from Semester 1 in Republic Polytechnic, so happy to see them here and great thanks to them for the help they gave me when I am in need during meetings. So much in love with the present they gave because there are engraving of my initials on it.

Bernice and Jaisree from Secondary school, still remember how I almost made Bernice split blood by teaching the mischievous me Mathematics.

Ordered red velvet for the top tier and rainbow for the bottom tier.

Had a mini contest to commemorate this day and below is one of the winner for the Instagram Contest:

All the setup and supplies using balloons for my birthday are done by Balloon Empire. It was a rainy day, and me who planned to decorate the outdoor area that have no light supply almost failed.

My Review

In collaboration with L'Unique, Heart'D Flora provided them with fresh flowers to be used for the indoor decoration and also to create a flower crown for me to wear. The smell of the roses dangling down the glass panel is retained and it spices up the whole ambience apart from looking elegant. I am also delighted that my guests love the flower, they took selfies with it and even bring some home after the event for further usage as not to wasted the beautiful flower. P.S I them home too, procedure to keep the roses fresh is easy, all you need to do is to refrigerate it.

My review

Around 1 week prior to the exact even date I met up with team Kaptivate and L'Unique for site a recce and discuss on how we want the decorations to be like. Me not knowing how I want it to be decorated L'Unique have already come up with a design before hand and it is really one of a kind. They also took the measurement of my head crown to customise a flower crown for me made out of fresh baby breath and roses as to accommodate to my theme. Be sure to contact them if you want an unique experience.

My review

Write up dedicated to Mad4Bakes for the sponsors of their cupcake. I first contacted them via Facebook message to ask for quotation of the cake I wanted with their previous design and were pleased to know that they do customisation and so because of that I request my cake to be match to my floral theme party, to make it more unique the team of talents actually draft out a few design for me to choose. They also have a wide variety of frosting and more than 10 flavours of cake for me to choose from. Size of cake is also suggested due to the number of guest I am inviting as I don't know anything about cake. Everything is thoughtfully planned by Mad4Bakes, my cake is also safety delivered in food condition all thanks to their careful delivery services.

My Review

With Kaptivate arrangement I had this 1 meter sign hanging at the center of the function room, because of the large size it draws attention to whoever whom walk into the room. Being at its light weight we are able to get it stuck onto the fairy lights with double sided tape provided by Kaptivate. This "2" and "1" is to be place at the area of my cake table and it incoincidentally matches with my cake colours.
