As I had mentioned in my last post, it was our first wedding anniversary yesterday and we celebrated it with our friends and family.
To make things a bit more interesting, we decided to make it a Bollywood theme so I was wearing my Lengha and AS was in his Kurta.
It took ages to do the Bollywood themed decorations but at the end it was all worth it. Everyone complimented us on the décor. We used my shawls and sari for decoration and used some lights to enhance the theme.
We got a few gifts from my friends and family but the best one was from my hubby. He bought me a watch while we were Switzerland and I love it.
For entrée we served bara, boiled egg, chiura, aloo ko achar, grilled chicken wings and saag. For main it was rice, daal, cauil ko tarkari, aloo ko achar and chicken curry. The dessert was rasbari with yogurt followed by the cake. We cooked lots of food yesterday and we have so much left over. I am partly to blame for it as I am always terrified that we will run out of the food for the guests and so cook too much and always have heaps left over.
The cake was really awesome. It was a rich chocolate mud cake as it is AS’s favourite.
The evening went well and the last guest left around 1 am so we didn’t do much after that. Just off to our warm bed.
AS was such a great host looking after everyone that it made my job lot easier to coordinate everything and making sure the all the guests were eating and drinking well. Overall, a fun filled evening to celebrate our togetherness.
Here are some photos.
I love that you had a family celebration of your anniversary and with a theme, too! I think of anniversaries as only for the couple so this is a neat idea. And with our baby-chan, I guess it’s becoming a mini family affair. 😀
Normally we do invite friends and family for all the celebration :). More the merrier 🙂
Such a time you’ve had… Happy Anniversary and here’s to a million more.
I think it was a nice party. You decoration is beauty….:)
Thank you gal 🙂
