My mother is my best friend when it comes to inviting my friends home. She helped me to make invitation cards and to fill them up with names.
She made a list of all the friends that I wanted to call and then made a card to send to each of my friends. The contents of each card were different so as to suit the taste of the particular friend to whom it was sent.
Next she took me to the market and we bought ballons and streamers, masks and caps etc to decorate the house with. We ordered the cake and bought wrapping paper along with the return presents.
As we reached home we sat down to work. We put up the streamers with tape and hung the ballons all over the walls and on the fans and doors and windows. We arranged the masks and caps in such a way that each friend of mine would pick one of his choices.
My mother spent the whole day in the kitchen cooking for all my friends. The cake arrived in the evening and soon my friends started pouring in. My father arranged some games for them and he became the refree for all our games.
He arranged musical chairs, passing the parcel, follow the leader, dumb charades etc and all the children enjoyed themselves.
We had our tea after I cut the cake. The cake was a beautiful house with colourful icing and big chunks of chocolate I was drowned in gifts once my friends left and l went to bed with the satisfaction of having enjoyed the best birth day party of my life.
