Poolside's birthday party

Jay is turning 6 today.

My grown-up boy

He has been so eager to celebrate his birthday and has been asking since April after his sis' birthday, "Is my birthday here yet?", "How long to my birthday?", "What day is my birthday?".

My son. He is big boy now and soon he would be graduating from his kindergarden and start primary school. A new milestone for him.

Last Sunday evening, we held an early birthday party for him. His 1st ever birthday party as in the past, we never hold a big one for him. 1st 2 years I were too busy with my shop and then when he was 3, we moved to Sibu. We had a simple dinner and celebration there.

This year, we organised a special birthday party for him which was held in our clubhouse poolside. It was fun, exciting and entertaining for him and other kids.

We invited my side of family as well as hubby's family, relatives and few close friends and kids. A gathering with our friends too since it has been a long time we meet up. Everyone had a great time chatting and catching up.

Theme of the party is "All wet and fun", so we incorporated one of his favourite cartoon characters from the Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob SquarePants.

A bunch of cheeky SpongeBob SquarePants

Aren't these Spongebob figurines cute?? We happened to spot them when browsing through a gifts shop in Kenyalang Park. Just nice to add into the goodie bags.

Birthday cake

I love this SpongeBob & friends cake that I ordered from Sweet Temptations, a home baker. She did a great fondant and figurines on this super delectable and smooth red velvet cheese cake. The cake was so irresistably creamy and soft with the cheese cream in the mid layer and frosted with cream cheese frosting.

This has got to be my favourite part!

Birthday song and cake cutting moment. Look how happy was the birthday boy!

Cakes, anyone?

To add more atmosphere into the party, we also have the specially-ordered balloons, party favors, party bunting and table decors from Your Dreamed Party, an online party supplier and planner. Thank you Joan for the time and effort in making this party an eventful and colourful one for my birthday boy.

When it comes to poolside party, water is very much involved. Kids cannot resist playing or swimming in the pool. They had a fabulous time spraying with water guns and balloon throwing in the pool.

Fun facts

While the kids were splashing away, the adults were busy filling up their tummies and drinking to their heart's content. Hubby insisted on bbq so I let him to do the bbq. We also engaged a caterer to prepare the dinner so hubby and I could relax and mingle with the guests.

The birthday star had a blastastic time and enjoyed the fun and centre stage during the party. Thank you to everyone for spending time in making this party a memorable affair!

And not forgetting Your Dreamed Party for the wonderful personalised decors and party favors.

Happy birthday, Jay!

Jay seems to have had a blast at his pool party! His birthday-themed goodies are so cute! I can see why Spongebob was the logical choice: it fits the pool theme and his bubbly attitude as he plays outside. Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful time at the pool. Good day!
