Hi Aarti : Here is a few more suggestions.... this will be a low cost yet a healthy and nutricious option. You can try preparing idli and chutney. You can make the idli more nutricious by adding grated carrot or palak puri etc. Infact you can keep variety of white (plain), palak idli and carrot idli. This will also make the spread look colourful.

Hi Aarti, recently we got a good birthday dress for my son in fabIndia for 1500 Rs. It was not very grand, at the same time had a neat party wear look. Material is also good. U can try there. Happy birthday in advance to ur son.

Happy Birthday in advance to your son Aarti :) All 4 year old will want a big party but its a wonderful idea to do have a small party at home & your son will love it as in the end little children remember the experience more than anything else :) To add to what Shikha has suggested, I could give you an idea of making a quick and easy snack. Its called Canapes. 1. You may cut one slice of bread into 4 pieces (cut the required number of slices) and lightly toast them. Make sure you toast them just so that they are crunchy. 2. Then spread some butter on each and keep aside. 3. thinly grate some carrots, cut capsicum into tiny cubes and any other hard vegetable as you wish. Keep aside. 4. Take cheese slices and cut them into 4 (almost the same size as the bread pieces. 5. Now sprinkle a little pepper onto the buttered bread pieces, place a little of the grated carrots and capsicum pieces on it, cover with the cheese square. You may add a little more pepper on top of the cheese too but some children may find it spicy. Do this to all the bread cubes. 6. Bake for a few mins just to melt the cheese or place the bread pieces on top of a hot tawa, cover and allow the cheese to melt. You may serve them at room temperature with some ketchup. You can also cut the bread pieces into bigger cubes and add boiled eggs/chicken as toppings to make it more attractive to the kids. The choice of toppings in endless just make sure to have a little cheese on the top to hold all the toppings in place. Hope you like this idea and have a successful get together :)

Hi dear! I can sense ur excitement n ur wish to do maximum to make ur child happy. it is advisable to make aalo tiki burger with chowmein,french fries, wafers, toffees. Or u cud make Chola bathura with pulao n Rasgullas. as far as gifts r concerned u cud give a grid game which costs rs 100 or cartoon character inflated balls. u cud buy him krish dress. I am sure he wud love it.
