Birthdays are not just simple affairs with a bunch of friends, cake, balloons and candles, anymore. Today, childrens’ birthday bashes can be quite a fancy event with everything from bouncing castles to magic shows, all managed by professionals.
Hotels/party halls have tie ups with event management companies for the décor and theme of the party though it is optional. "The basic décor starts at Rs 3000, magic show at Rs 2,500, tattooing at Rs 1,500 and caricature at Rs 2,500", says Srinivas N, an event manager.
"My five year old son is always excited to go to a birthday party just for the games and return gifts. It’s a new concept, but kids enjoy a lot", says Padmaja Vinod, 33, a homemaker.
