Krishna Theme Party

During our visit to India this January, we decided to throw ‘Krishna‘ themed birthday party to celebrate Baby A’s First Birthday. It was his first visit to India too.

Keeping the peacock feather in mind, we zeroed in on the four colors: purple, green, blue and gold to emulate ‘Krishna’ theme. We carried all the party decor supplies : backdrop, main table decor, guests tables/chairs decor, and the handcrafted cookies from the US.
