Birthday Parties first Memory
For most people, first memory of birthdays that comes to mind is that of a crowd of people singing the unmistakable happy birthday song to a rather apprehensive looking 4-year-old stood in front of a candle lit cake waiting for the rather out of tune orchestral to complete the song so they can continue with the pressing issue of blowing out the candles; dicing up the cake and tucking in.
Growing up in a household where birthdays are rarely celebrated, I was overjoyed to learn that I was being thrown a party for my 10th birthday. The birthday cake was delivered first thing in the morning. They were personalised cakes delivered by a local bakery. My mother had pre-booked the cake three weeks earlier. A few friends and cousins were invited to the house for a disco party and there were lots of sweets. I always wanted a huge party, invite lots of friends and having lots of fun.
Birthdays in the 21st Century
Now in my 30’s, birthday party celebration has changed significantly. The big day is all about planning, shopping around for bargains and only inviting close friends. However, it won’t be a birthday without three key elements. One of which is key “The cake”
