|Fabulous arrangements and birthday boy's picture with parents his Atta and Minayal|
Recently their eldest son Mr. Atta and his lovely wife Minayal celebrated first birthday of their first-born son Maqbool Sheikh. Interesting fact is that, this little lad Maqbool is named after his great grandfather. Minayal, the pretty young mother of the birthday boy seems too fond of the game 'Polo'. So, the theme was the same and was extensively used in decorations from every aspect.
On the cool Sunday morning of 6th December, their house was renamed as 'Maqbool's polo club'. Hay stacks were laid everywhere, were even used as coffee tables. Pennants, Red flags, Banners, buntings with birthday boy's initials were hanged on flagpoles. Life size, painted statues of horses made beautiful part of the display. Red, Blue and Yellow coloured balloon bouquets and arches were spread across the party area. Picket fences which were used to create different sitting areas and to direct the guests to the dinning area, added the real feel of Polo setting. Cushions on sofas, table mats and tissue papers on dinning tables, water bottles, everything was custom made and had Maqbool's initials inscribed on it. It seemed like mini Maqbool Land. Everything had his stamp on it.
Chocolate fountains flowed with fondue. Candies for kids and snacks for adults remained on serving till the brunch was laid. And brunch had an exclusive live cooking with chefs working relentlessly in the middle of the show. From barbecue tikkas, kebabs and chops to naan, parathas, everything was being cooked at the spot and no delays in serving. It was ready to be served when anybody approached. From traditional to fast food, every taste was abound, to suit young and old alike.
About birthday bounties and return gifts, everything was served individually in champions' cups and trophies. Another buttress to remind, it was a polo party.
We congratulate Minayal for arranging the whole party in such an exuberant manner. Not to forget, the most admirable part of it for many was that it was a family gathering. A wonderful opportunity to enjoy a weekend together with family and friends. As said by Joyce brothers; ''When you look back at life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses''.
Lots of prayers and good wishes for Maqbool and his parents. We look forward to them and their family for more fun in the future. Best of luck!
