We are done with the 7 best ideas to celebrate your upcoming birthday. As an afterthought let me add the 3 more beautiful things that came to my mind when I was proofreading it the final time!
This could be the thing to do on your birthday alone if you like it that way.
Spending the day with kids or elderly is very satisfying. A child’s laughter and the smile on an elderly is going to remain with you forever. You will earn memories and blessings, which is a great thing to do on a birthday.
Take some chocolates for the children and watch them beam all day. If you get the opportunity to teach them something, you will be fascinated with the functioning of a child’s mind. Isn’t this an awesome idea?
Get one of those perfect fondant cakes, which are delicious and reflect your personality, passions etc. Whether it is filled with miniature shopping bags which can be eaten or your favourite bike turned into an eatable cake.
Invite your friends and family over and celebrate the childhood way. A big cake, friends, family and food: The perfect way to celebrate.
A proper patisserie chef can do wonders with your cake, and it can have customized flavours and fillings.
On one of my birthday, I had gotten a chocolate cake with butterscotch nuts and chocolate chips topped with edible shopping bags of Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Chanel etc. It was the most delicious and pretty looking cake I have ever tasted. And it went with my shopaholic personality.
