Advays 6th Birthday Celebration

This month was pretty hectic with so many things on my mind I hardly got any time to blog or to visit my favorite blogs,even though when I am typing this post I am monitoring my sons homework  so you guys can imagine how busy I have been ,last week was Advays birthday unlike last year i couldn't plan a good party for him this year :-( , keeping the design of the cake

 in mind just decorated the wall

 with handmade birthday banner

 and banner  for the banner  followed the same procedure which I had done on the kinder graduation cake 
inspired from here ,the only difference is I stuck the cardstock paper on the rope with help of tape and  with some balloons on the wall the decor was complete .
 and for the entrance kept a picture of Advay 

and decorated a frame with handmade bunting and welcome message .
For the goodie bag  traced out the template of Mickey Mouse on card stock paper

 and made label for the goodie bags.
That's Advay with his friend :-)

That's all guys have been learning lots of new things as MIL is here will be updating the blog soon with new recipes,..:)
Linking this post to
the weekly story week  13 hosted by Colours Dekor.
Take care and happy blogging .
