Birthday Party

Postby Mahipal » Mon Jan 22, 2007 3:33 am

Guys,

We need some advice here. We are planning to celebrate our son's first birthday party in Hyderabad in March. We have talked to hotels like ITC Kakatiya, Katriya and Viceroy, but their prices are ridiculous(Rs. 1100 to 1400 + 31% tax). So for about 300 to 350 people, we are looking at around 5 lakhs just for the food, which is not something we are willing to spend. Ofcourse all other arrangements will cost extra in addition to the above price. So we have ruled out the hotels. But at the same time we dont want to take the same old route of function halls and stuff.

We want this party to be one where both the kids and the adults can have equal fun while maintaining an upscale ambience and feel. So I need the input and recommendations from people who have had parties in Hyderabad in the recent time. What's the trend like these days? Is theme based parties an in thing now? Can you guys recommend any event managers who can take care all the arrangements, including catering?

We want to host this party in an outdoor atmosphere. Somebody mentioned Durgam Cheruvu party zone as a good place for this. Does anyone have any experience with this place? I googled it and see that most of the movie fuctions like audio releases etc are held here. Other than that I have no information about this place.

Any ideas, recommenations, advice is higly appreciated.

Thanks!

First Birthday

Postby Sibu's eye » Thu Jan 25, 2007 1:18 pm

Well Mahipalji,

First birthday of your child will be the most memorable event that will bond you to your child for ever. Congrats and may your son grow up to be a healthy and happy man. And having been born to you, I'm sure he is already lucky. Now what can you do to make it unique?
You got to plan something that is liked by his age group mostly; and their parents. Why not explore if you could plan something in the zoo, for the kids will enjoy the ambience as also the toy train and the animals. There are also elephant and camel rides. It also will give them a love for nature and animals, two things any amount of five star life will not give you. And then treat the kids to great dollops of good icecream and eats.
Have u seen school kids at the zoo. They absolutely love it.
May sound rather unexciting to you, but beleive me if it is the kids day then the focus has to be what THEY like and not how the elders can make it into an excuse to get drunk and make it boring for the kids.
At 63 and with a grandson of two and a half, my priority is to see that he is the happiest-at least on his special day. 5 star and other star bashes are ok if one looks for showmanship, but believe me it would be more satisfying to go for quality.

Wish your son a great first birthday.

Birthday Party

Postby Varsha » Tue Jan 30, 2007 3:43 pm

Hello,
First of all congratulations on your son's first birthday! Hope you can make it memorable for your family.
5 star parties are an expensive proposition . As an alternative , you could probably look at JALVIHAR/ Sanjeevaiah park etc as venue options.The advantage is that these places are in the heart of the city .
For catering option , you could speak to Arora Caterers . They are very reputed or get Utsav to cater for the event .
As for event management , I could help you out since I am in the area of events.I am just starting out , so I could definitely lend you a hand , price being no issue with me .
Some themes that could work are :
1. The most popular carnival theme..we can hire bouncing castle or other inflatable toys , get a portrait painter , magician etc
2. An olympic games theme party - centered around games like baby stroller race , lemon on spoon , frisbee throwing,baton races,suitcase relay etc . - Inviatations , decorations , food etc to correspond to the theme.
3.Teddy Bear theme:
Possible games are 1. Find the bear anywhere! 2.Teddy Bear relay 3.Teddy Toss4. Stick the heart on the teddy .
You can get in touch with me at 27717346 , I would be happy to share more ideas or any other information that you require
Regards

Triplegem, thanks for the great advice...I really appreciate it. I fully understand what you are saying, and we do intend to spend with our kid a full day in the zoo. Though he is too young to understand, I am sure he'll have a great time. As far as the party is concerned, you are right...it is an excuse for the adults to get drunk, cant deny that.... :D

Varsha, thank you for your response. Your ideas sounds great. I have spoken wth Arora and SV caterers and waiting for their email quotes. I'll call you shortly to discuss the even ideas. Thanks again.

hello Mahipal: Recently I happen to attend a Birthday party of a 2yr old - hosted by NRI parents. It was held in a boat which took off from Lumbini Park and went around Hussainsagar (Tank Bund). I believe the host rented it out for 3 hrs and was good fun for both the kids and adults. There was an event manager who pulled all the adults for a round of musical chairs and antakshari. And for the kids, there were clows, face painters and some games. The upper deck on the boat is kind of open air - but has a top on your head to protect from Sun. And the lower deck is air conditioned and lunch was served there. So you might want to check it out....

Happy B'day in advance to your little one.

Just wanted to let you all know that we celebrated the birthday party in Jalavihar. Its a nice place for this kind of parties. The entire event was managed by Varsha(who responded to my question in this thread), and she did a fantastic job. If anyone is looking for an event manager, go for Varsha without any hesitation.

Internet is such a beautiful thing and thankyou fullhyd.

Hi,

Just read your message. Jalvihar has actually two venues, one a stage(called vedika) where you can do the main event and the catering, and the other a glass house in the garden with seating inside and around it. This place also has 3 small AC cottages.

Stage area will hold about 300 people, and the cost is 60000. Glass house area is generally good for smaller gatherings of about 150 people and will cost you 30000. This area, in my opinion, is perfect for liquour parties.

The cost includes stage, seating, lighting, generator etc. No other out of pocket expenses for the venue. As far as the event is concerned, it all depends on your taste, requirements and budget. Let me know if you need more information.

I like your handle 'Hello Mahipal'....:)

Hi ,
I am quite interested in this type of a party for my about-to-be-2 year old and would be thankful if you could give any information about the cost involved in renting the boat..
Also if anyone can give me any information about where to go for caterers/decorators for such a party, it would be most welcome.

hi jyotsna
To hire the boat for the party , you have to go to APTDC office ( e.g. the Yatri Nivas one).There are three boats with a capacity for around 120 people. The charges are Rs 15,000 ; Rs 10000 ; Rs 5000 respectively for the three boats plus extra for the food . They will give the booking for a specified time slot only. It helps if you know someone in APTDC office.
I can help you with the decoration ( APTDC has some rules for that, like no dias etc ) and the entertainment also. You can call me at 98859 56728 or 040 27717346.

Dear All,

My kids (twins) first birthday was on 18th March 2011. After seeing this post i have contacted Varsha. As she was busy and occupied on that day she gave me reference of VASU. I am really happy to tell you that the event was very well organized by him. He got us a good deal in CEDAR Banquet Hall in RK CinePlex, Opp. LV Prasad Eye Institute, Banjara Hills. He showed us different themes and we have selected Cindrella with Micky. He arranged the magician, 1 min game show organizer, Ballon Decoration and Tatoo for kids. All the guest are very happy and appreciated the arrangements They enjoyed every bit of the show.

The food at CEDAR was also too good. The manager Mr. Srinivas Reddy was very helpful and cooperative. I recommend this place for organizing the parties.

You can reach VASU on 9848452240 and Srinivas Reddy on 900319997.

Thank you Varsha for your good reference.

With Regards,
Maruthi

One idea could be to create an online wish list. This will help the people coming to the party easily find and choose a gift, and will allow you to pick the things that you think your child would like to have.
