Joint party celebration with Jollibee!

Initially, this party was intended to celebrate only Chaeli’s 3rd birthday. Since Chase made it clear he doesn’t want any party for his 7th birthday but a trip to Disneyland. ( we all know he is just choosing a better deal 😉 So, we all agreed to just make it a joint party celebration for the two of them (They are both born in December). I wanted it to be just a simple party and not extravagant at all. We chose Jollibee Global city branch since most our relatives are from that area and we thought it was the most accessible branch to everyone. Why Jollibee? Because Chaeli wants and loves him! I guess every filipino kid for that matter.

You can book the party online and call them directly for any additional request or concern. This is an advantage for me since we are based in Cabuyao and It would cost us a lot if we need to visit the branch everytime I have request or concern (which are plenty haha). My only wish is for them to have a bigger and spacious party place because for 120 pax crowd we really looked cramped.

Let’s start with our suppliers. I booked a balloon decorator for the ceiling hanging balloons and two tower for the standee’s. You can check them out at https://www.facebook.com/cheesefavors. I chose the cheapest package since I don’t want to cramp the space further with balloons. They were two hours early and was able to set-up in less than 15 minutes.

Next is our Balloon Master Nhell! I got him from Balloonboy creation. for our party and we are beyond satisfied with his service. He was 2 hours early and as soon as the party started he made every one happy with his awesome balloon creations- truly a balloon master! He did it for two hours non-stop without complain (He even insisted to make his food wait to accommodate everyone’s request) Kids just cant get enough of his creation.

Look at Chase trying out his own balloon jet pack!

Let’s not forgot who brought glitz and glam to the party – Kiddie Salon by Nail brat! Check them out at https://www.facebook.com/kiddiesalonbynailbrat. They set-up early (even on venue two hours ahead), accommodate guests courteously, done amazing braids, beautiful tattoos, and sparkling nails- for the whole two hours non-stop without complain! Great job and awesome service.

They start with showering Chaeli their undivided attention making her pretty and making her feel special on her special day. Chaeli sure doesn’t want to ruin her sparkling nails, she won’t close her hands nor her fingers! haha


Lastly, The “giveaways”.

For Chase & Chaeli’s godparents. We ordered personalized pillow from Jesh Force Enterprises c/o Jen Dugay. She offered the cheapest yet quality personalized pillows online. I ordered twice for additional orders because ever since I posted a preview of it, many wanted to have one of their own. 🙂

For the kid’s mini tool caddy, I ordered them a month before from Handicrafts Atbp. While the loot boxes came from ERS printing. You can search for their pages in Facebook.

Oh I almost forgot! The birthday cake! The kids loved the Lego movie theme cake from Sugar MOM. Check out her facebook page here

Everyone had a blast with Jollibee as he and Hetty entertained us with a dance towards the end of the party. They also gestured a message for the celebrants which the host translated for us. It was a memorable and fun-filled day for the kids and we are grateful to everyone who shared their precious time with us. You all made this simple party an extravagant one!

I’m back!


Guess who’s back from a long hibernation?! Me! So sorry to keep you all waiting.. I know I owe you so much from Chase’s 7th birthday in Hong Kong, Chase’s school party to the kid’s joint party celebration in Jollibee and know that I haven’t forgot all about them. 😉 December was a fun and frantic month for us. If I were to compute our stay at home, maybe it will be less than 10 days for the whole month! We spent the first week in HongKong, The second week preparing for Chase’s school exam, the third week in Baguio City (10 hours drive from home) and the final week in Manila for the kid’s joint birthday party. Then we spend the new year in my husband’s hometown in Cavite. So there! No wonder our utility bills’ went down to almost 70%. 🙂 I hope everyone had a memorable and joyous holidays like us. Happy New year 2015!

Mommybuysph – Christmas gifts for less

Christmas season is fast approaching and so is the season for gift giving too 🙂 Although not necessary, Gift giving serves as an act of love to our “inaanak” and loved ones this holiday. More than the material benefit, I see it as a good way to let them know that they are remembered and special. One doesn’t need to go broke this Christmas on spending too expensive gifts. As they say, it’s the thought that counts and Gifts are merely token of love and appreciation. So hunt according to your budget and your recipient’s needs and preference.

I just started to list down my Christmas gifts when I saw Mommybuysph stall in Acacia estates bazaar weeks ago. They have RTW clothing for kids for only Php 400 or less. Being a mom, I prefer clothes and other essentials things over toys because they are more practical and economical too. That is why I bought a bunch of hooded blankets priced from 150-200 each from Mommybuysph.  –They are an affordable (and within my budget 😉 ) cute gifts for babies and kids less than 2 years old. I also bought Frozen themed pajamas and dresses for Chaeli for less than Php 200! They also have cute tutu dresses for toddlers and pre-schoolers but sadly most of the sizes available then are too big for Chaeli.

What better way to share a piece of cake than having them in a beautiful jar? We all had fun sharing this personalized cake in a jar made by Zhelle’s House of No-Bake Cakes. The cake was as beautiful as it was delicious, the jars can also be re-use and perfect for souvenirs.

We had a cake-blowing event in Chase’s school last week and thought of sharing a piece of cake with everyone without a “knife” and “mess” involved. I was browsing and looking for bakers or bake shoppe near our place and I stumbled upon Zhelle’s House of No-Bake cakes online. She offered affordable prices and free delivery to our place so I instantly booked her! Since Chase loves mangoes and requested to have a mango cake for his birthday, I ordered mango cake from Zhelle for him and his classmates. The cake is composed of chiffon cake with vanilla frosting and fresh mangoes toppings all packed in a jar. It was yummy and we all loved it. I also ordered a box of crinkles with dulce de leche filling for hubby 🙂 I loved how the red velvet crinkles melts in my mouth plus it’s not too sweet- perfect!

How could you say no to this lovely  and delicious cake in a jar?

In the early 80s, prom dresses worn by young ladies were very appealing and fashionable. Majority of the girls wore a long gown that nearly touched their ankles and the floor. The dresses brought out their innocence and sweetness when they began to walk in the ballroom. Young ladies often changed their dress in harmony with the type of music aired at the prom. In this decade, disco music was a hit. The prom dresses would vary in colors, shapes, and designs in accordance to the inclination and body figure of the wearer. Silk, velvet, and satin belonged to the most usual textiles for prom dresses. They were sheared with admirable stitching, lace, and pearls. And this surely revealed the most captivating look of a young lady.

Vintage prom wear from the eighties looked fabulous and cater to the classic hourglass figure. The key is to choose the right gown that suits your body type and inner wear that provides enough support. The 80s style varied from Ivory Lace Creations, Punk Prom Party Frocks, Ruffled Prom Dresses, and Strapless Taffetas. These were joined by the Polka Dot Bowed Prom Dresses, the Vintage Lace Wiggle Backless Promenade Dresses, and Floral Knee Length Gowns.

As exciting as the prospect of prom is, it also brings about plenty of worries and anxiety, especially when it comes to choosing the perfect dress. With so many dresses available on the market, deciding on color, fit, and style is often overwhelming.
