Happy *Glamorous* Birthday Cici!!!

I've done SO MANY surprise birthday party for my friends and special ones,
but I never really did a BIG and GLAMOROUS surprise bday party for my own sister.
So this year is the time to test the water and try organising one.
AND IT WENT GREAT!
It was VERY rush and mind boggling experience but IT WAS AWESOME!

Lots of cropping and editing to be done @_@

To be honest, I only had less than a week to plan this.
Just to share with you guys, below was the original plan and layout I had in mind...

First of was the invitation card.
I designed it a.l.a VIP card XD


Next was the backdrop, as what you've seen from the above pictures:


Last but not least, the layout *thanks Rina for sketching it out*
Initially, I planned for the chairs to be covered with black clothe wrapped in hot pink bow,
300-500 helium balloons pink and purple balloons,
Barricade and red carpet all the way from entrance to the room,
2 backdrops i.e. one for red carpet moments and one for stage backdrop,
3 layer of chocolate cheese cake,
and 20 CLOSE friends of hers.

But due to budget constrain, increased number of guests from 20 to 40+ and the non availability of the colour table clothe and chair cover from the venue, I had to readjust, squeeze and compress every single one of them but still have all the things I planned.
Thank god, it is all well managed, except 1 glitch that made me quiet irritated.
8 guests that RSVPed TWICE didn't showed up at all!
Not only they're wasting my time and precious money, the worst part was, 1 of them said "Oh? I forgot".
Wth? They almost ruined my night if it weren't for my sister.
*May I remind you, I'm a perfectionist*

But all in all, all I wanted was for my sis to be happy and have the best birthday she had ever had :)

Happy "glamorous" 23rd birthday Cici!
XOXO - Your best big sis you'll ever find,

Aya
