This post is way overdue but life has been quite busy since I turned 35! I can't dare post all the pictures here but here are some highlights. I decided to have an Indian themed bash about six months before and spent hours in Butala Emporium in Little India buying decorations. incense, garlands and platters. Soumanjoy and I even made the trip to Jackson Heights to buy a sherwani for me and a sari for mom. Little did I know he already had his sister on a hunt for one in India which he gave to me on my actual birthday.
Molly from Sips and Bites did a stellar job on Indian themed food and Soumanjoy made a killer chicken tikka. My poor bartender had no idea what hit him with 35 people came in at the same time and the crowd swelled to around 75.
We spilled, swilled, twirled and laughed till 2am. One of the earliest party endings I've ever had! Usually people are still coming in at that hour. It was quite a bash. Next year is tee shirts and paper plates!
Henna Studio spent two hours beautifying everyone in henna. The perfect addition.
