Diwali food

Food display is my favourite thing to do... 
Here is what we did for Diwali last year... 

This was jal jeera ...
Jeera means cumin and this is a refreshing drink typically made of jeera & lemonade... tastes yumm!!



We had kebabs on skewers with little coriander chutney with them..


Individually served chaat ...
This is my all time favourite.. I can eat chaat at anytime of the day!




We had a variety of chaat, paapdi chaat, dahi chaat, channa chaat. *sigh*


More kebabs in a different display...



And the evening simply looked amazing... the food was impressive too! *smiles*

Corners of my home

All set to keep this carpet aside & put up my new one. Hence I thought I’ll quickly take a few pics & share them too.


This is how my home looks everyday… (atleast when it is clean)


This little lamp was my new find last year, from the craft safari. I totally loved it *smiles*






Posting pictures of corners seems to be my favourite time pass *smiles*

wall of frames

A collection on frames on the wall for me is the most difficult thing to do. These are pictures from our Jaipur holiday…

Foyer

I like the word 'foyer' ...
Just before I remove all this and put it away... have a quick look! 




Getting ready for the festive season?

Brass Menagerie

Typically the time of the year that is dedicating to cleaning, clearing and de-cluttering. So this year, Im puttine everything away and trying to look minimalistic. Honestly Im trying!! Its rather difficult for me *grins*

Now, just before I put all the stuff away, I thought I'll share some images of my home with you... 


That beautiful mirror is from The Attic. He has the most amazing stuff at the most impressive prices!


A closer look at my beauty!! 


Now to show you my brass menagerie... 



These are collections from all over, various holidays and various stores.. The little pot is from Myanmar. That was one fantastic holiday for sure!!




Have you started your annual cleaning (I mean big cleaning) as well??

Boho themed birthday

A Nutella themed cake for the nutella lover ... 
Isn't this cake impressive.
You've got to order your cakes from Moonface, if you are based in Dubai. 


We had a little drinks station, giving the girls a choice of cold coffee, a variety of juices, and fruits to put in your drink & ice tea. Ofcourse they loved the choices! 


and i think I loved it too!! 


This is the table setup with food & other snacks!! 


A little cup cake station for the girls to put their toppings.. 


Fresh waffle station!! This was a huge success .. and the girls totally loved the choice of toppings & the writing...




Finally the give away bags. 


With a little thank you note! I love organising birthday parties for kids. But my girls are now growing up too soon... *sobs!

Boho themed party - part 2

Here is showing you the rest of the decor. 

We had a little tee pee set up for the girls to enjoy some photo opportunities. You'll notice I use this tee pee at nearly every event at home. The younger kids just love it. 


And the older kids love it too... See what I mean?


Around the garden we had little flags & dream catchers. No matching colours or anything. Just anything pretty we found indoors, came outdoors to form part of the boho decor.


Giving you a better view...


Another corner..


This dream catcher had a few feathers below it... for the girls to write a birthday message for Eva. It was a huge success.

And Eva truly values it, and still has it hanging in her room.


The girls loved writing messages....


One of Evas favourite gifts this birthday was a poloriod camera... They posed & had pictures of themselves on display... It was rather cute...


All in all a pretty birthday...

Part 3 on Friday to show you what we did for cake & food. See you then!!
