It’s Nabeel’s birthday today! He turned 3. However, we celebrated his birthday a month ago, when he turned 3, as per the Islamic calendar. That was his first grand birthday celebration, since his birth and so I left no stone unturned to ensure it was a well planned event the memories of which would linger on forever. It can be said that I was successful in doing so 🙂
The entire process also gave birth to my start up, Let’s Celebrate – Personalized Party Supplies. Read on to know more.
Nabeel Inspires, Again!
The whole party planning thing led me into an unexplored territory of kid’s retail business, which I believe (and also see) is going to be the next huge thing in India.
Looking at the prospects and the learning and experience I gathered while planning the party motivated me to start a unique set up of personalized party supplies, which is an untouched arena in the kid’s retail industry in India.
Theme based parties, gifts, décor, dresses, celebrations, etc is the “in-thing” in India these days. I, too, had a theme in mind and started planning for the party, the only difference being I was going to do it all by myself, taking the easy (also, expensive and compromising) route i.e. hiring an event/party planner, was not an option.
Yes, it was not easy! I started planning 2 months in advance, a lot of time had to be devoted in order to research but the thrill and challenges that it gave me was too addictive to let go or give up.
Nevertheless, once all the information was gathered I got to making stuff myself as I was not too keen on buying off the shelf items. I wanted to personalize everything for Nabeel and his grand party.
With the help of a dear friend, who designed the party supplies, I managed to create a unique party for Nabeel with personalized party supplies and this is how the idea of Let’s Celebrate – Personalized Party Supplies was planted in my mind.
Shared in this post are pictures of everything that was customized for the party, except the return gifts although they were very much in sync with the theme. The theme was Mickey Mouse, Nabeel’s then favourite cartoon character (yup the month old fav has now been replaced by Dora….Hehehe) and the theme colours were red and black.
We also created Special theme based Bingo tickets, food tags and “congratulations” stickers, the images of which are not shared in the post.
