Birthdays are always special, be it your first or the ones for which we get scared of being old. We become finer, wiser, better and certainly older with each of our birthdays. But, exceptional are those with which we enter into a remarkable era of life. On 1st of August, 2016, my daughter Maitreni celebrated the 25th spring of her life, so this silver jubilee birthday of hers was indeed momentous for our family. And let me disclose the ‘cherry-on-the-cake’ of that gala occasion— it was none other than FlowerAura, the synonym of celebration, when words are not enough. 1st Aug, 2016 was indeed a notable day for me and my family on which FlowerAura added dollops of delight.

6 PM: 31st July, 2016 — We all were secretly planning to amaze Maitreni with frisky birthday wishes and a surprise midnight party. Just to make her dumbfound and astonished, we planned an outdoor décor in the garden area of our house so that she couldn’t guess what’s cooking outside. And the idea worked out just because she kept herself locked in her room that day, reason being she was upset on her birthday eve.
11:30 PM: 31st July, 2016— Suddenly, it started drizzling and all the décor got spoilt. Rain-god was reluctant to this surprise thing. Somehow my husband managed to arrange a passable birthday décor in our portico.
11:55 PM: 31st July, 2016— All of us were assembling at the door of Maitreni’s room keeping all the phone switched off so that no one could disturb us. But suddenly her phone started ringing. Annoyed, she murmured— “Who wants to be the first one to wish me? That too, before time! Spoilt sport!” She picked the call and came out of her room in her night dress. It was a call from FlowerAura. The delivery boy was standing at our gate, all scared, wet and shivering! Our pet dog Bambi was barking like a beast with an ’attack’ mode thinking him a thief or something! Completely drenched, he handed over the surprise gifts sent all the way from FlowerAura head-office.
12:00 AM: 1st August, 2016— The clock struck 12 and we started wishing her with music and lights at the gate only.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU… 🎵 🎶 🎼 … HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR MAITRI… 🎵 🎶 🎼 … HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU 🎤 🎧 🎹 🎷 🎺 🎸 🎻
It was one of the most memorable days of my life as my princess turned 25 and was entering into a new era of adulthood, maturity and responsibility. Really? Is it? I don’t think so! 😛 She’s still like a kid from heart, anyone could make out as she was giggling and jumping with joy seeing a huge teddy bear from FlowerAura.
And my sweet tooth Anindhya was drooling over the delectable coffee cake! All this fun was happening under umbrellas and the all-soaked, shivering delivering boy was the ultimate prey to the sudden and unexpected gushes of Rain-god. We thanked him, and I even felt disconsolation for his poor condition but he smiled and revealed the last surprise of the D-day. It was a beautiful exotica bouquet with vibrant yellow and pink lilies filled with brightness and vivacity. A complimentary gift sent by local office of FlowerAura which was indeed the sweetest gesture! ^_^
Delicious cake, beautiful flowers and a huge cuddler teddy bear— Maitreni couldn’t have asked for more for that day, as she was already showered with blessings and good wishes by family and friends at midnight 12.
It started raining cats and dogs by the time we got ready to cut the cake. And the worst part? The power outraged due to heavy rains left us bang upon mere dimmed inverter lights. Photo clicks got spoilt due to droplets on the camera lens. Even my husband, my nephew and my maid were completely drenched during capturing those priceless moments. Thanks to that outdoor party plan.
But despite all that hurly-burly chaos, my princess was smiling! 🙂 The fashionista was posing for the camera in her exquisite green party gown with her new buddy— the cutest teddy! 🐻
Anindhya was busy stealing the choco-chips from the coffee cake and Naughty Naivaidyam was adamant to paint Maitreni’s face with cake’s icing. Finally, he managed to destroy her makeup and the moment was indeed priceless.
Thank you FlowerAura for making my princess’s silver jubilee birthday super special! 😀
