A daughter is a miracle that never ceases to
be miraculous ..... Full of beauty & forever
beautiful......loving and caring & truly amazing .

Today is Daughters Day in India .
Daughters are truly a blessing for parents .
Their sensitive nature makes them
magnanimous during all phases of life
Right from the day when my little fairy
Nandika was born, each moment has
been a celebration for me .
Seeing her grow- from an infant to a little girl
has inspired me to create
food art for this special occasion ......

Grandparents Day

~ Happy Grandparents Day ~

"Nobody can do for little children what grandparents
do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over
the lives of little children"
-Alex Haley

Grandparents Day is celebrated to honour &
strengthen family values and the role
that they play in the family.
An unknown author says- "Grandparents have
warmth of parents, wisdom of sages and
the heart of a child."
An edible token of our love to share with our
grandparents & spice up the mood of celebration.....

Kids would surely love to make it n share it too!!!!!

With Love

fennel seeds or colorful sprinkles , skewers .
