From the very start of the party planning, I knew what kind of theme that I wanted. I wanted something unique and magical. I wanted a theme na hindi masyado common to all. Since Sofia is baby pa and cant decide pa what she wants, so I grabbed the chance na to choose. Haha! although she already has fave characters which is Hello Kitty and strawberry shortcake ( Don’t worry sweetie next year will be your own choice ) and I know few years from now or even in her next party, she’ll have own decision na
And so we came up with this kind of theme (Big Thanks to Kathleen for the suggestions ) At first, I was kinda hesitant with It’s a small world theme because super onting resources of ideas and party supplies. But after the brain storming and convinced by Kathleen and hubby, I finally decided to stick with it
Thank God, I did the right decision. We had magical and unique party for our little princess Venue: Silk Pavillion, The Blue Leaf
One of my criteria when choosing a venue is always should have a high ceiling. Then when i saw nga yung Blue Leaf.I instantly fell in love with it:) It was my dream venue just incase if i get married in manila
I actually first saw Blue Leaf at Cheska kramer- Garcia’s Wedding. Caterer: Bizu
Bizu is one of the accredited caterers of Blue Leaf. I have only 2 choices either K By Cunanan or Bizu. I heard both have great foods and set up. But since only Bizu have tiffany white chairs for kids, and I super love white tiffany chairs,so we finally decided to get Bizu. And hindi ako nagsisi, my guest love the food especially the 10 hour Roast Beef!
actually, my husband went to phils last dec to have the food tasting, and he said sarap sarap daw ng food. My mom in law who is into food ( they have food business ) said ang sarap daw. Thank God, pumasa sa mom in law ko
She was wondering agad how much daw per head. Haha
and one more thing, We were only expecting 140 Adults and 40 Kids, but on that day, I think around 180 adults attended the party, but still they enough of food to serve
Here’s our menu: Adult Menu:

Sofia's 1st outfit was made by Cecilio Abad .He was also my wedding gown couturier. I super love Tito Cecil! He really never failed to amaze me with his creations. Mapabata or matanda, he is simply the best.
I super love my daughter’s gown. He will always be one of my favorite supplier Sofia in her Cecilio Abad Gownhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5511218044/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5511108878/in/set-72157626102337719/

She’s heavent sent
She’s one of my dream suppliers for my baby’s party. I love the way she style and decorate parties. She’s very hands on and she will make sure talaga na dadaan sa kamay nya lahat. even the small details
Super OC cya. Hehe She will make sure na unique at elegant talaga ang party
I am so glad that I found her. She is super patient pa. Ang dami ko request and pabago bago ng isip but still she is very accommodating. But sometimes delay lang sa pagsagot ng emails but she has valid reasons naman and she will make sure na masasagot ang tanong pag ngreply cya
worth the wait naman ang reply nya
We just communicated thru email throughout the whole party planning.we did had any phone conversation at all talaga purely emails talaga. We paid her 50% thru bank lang, I didn’t had any problems with her even after paying 50%. One of the most trusted supplier talaga
She did super great job during our daughter’s birthday party. Expect the unexpected. Ang Fabulous ng setup. I super love everything, the moving 3D backdrop ( especially made for my daughter’s party), ceiling elements, ceiling decorations, balloon decorations, centerpieces, 6 Moving Doll Standees infront of the Backdrop, plus daming freebies!
I highly recommend her. She can also works with your budget
and Super easy to work with
You can never go wrong with her. She will be your instant bestfriend Invitationhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510508497/in/set-72157626102337719/Centerpieceshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5511099176/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5511106436/in/set-72157626102337719/Backdrophttp://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510507379/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510500531/in/set-72157626102337719/Ceiling Decorationshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510504211/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510499043/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5511099720/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510503965/in/set-72157626102337719/1 of 2 Sets of Moving Dollshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5511107000/in/set-72157626102337719/Ceiling Elementshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5511099476/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5511108172/in/set-72157626102337719/Photographer: Ging Lorenzo
I knew Ms Ging before I gave birth pa, we were scheduled to have maternity session and 1st month pictorial of Sofia with her but due to lack of time, we weren’t able to make it. Ms Ging is my dream photographer. Hindi pa ako buntis avid fan na nya ako. So when I inquired to her around march, she said she’ll be only accepting clients 6 months prior to the event. So jun pa lang super kulit ko na sa kanya but she said nga she cant accept pa clients. She told me 01 Jul pa she’ll start to accept na. so midnight of 01 Jul I emailed her. Haha and the next morning she replied na, I’m booked na daw! Yeheeyy!!! Another dream come true
And as expected, she did great job during our baby sofia’s 1st party. She really captured a lot of candid/precious moments. Btw,we have instant 2nd photog during Sofia’s party, since she is 4 months preggy, she brought along her sister,Pie Lorenzo. Thanks Ms. Pie for the wonderful photos.
It was nice working with you Ladies
Cant wait to work with you again

Ang babait at very professional. I super love the onsite. Guests were telling me parang kasal daw yung party ng baby ko kasi may onsite pa.
First time ko din sila nameet during Sofia’s party na. They went to hotel first to shoot for Sofia’s onsite video. They arrived at the hotel around 12pm. And my baby is sleeping. So super swak talaga yung pagdating nila. Onsite Video: http://vimeo.com/19659445Host/Magician: Alex Lagula

This is one of the most important detail for my baby’s birthday. And I wanted to be one of the highlight of the party. It was Kathleen who coordinated with Les Sucries. I just told her what kind of cake that I want, that I want a bigger and moving elements and lights on the castle. True enough, it was indeed one of the highlight of the party. I super duper love the cake. We got their Best Selling carrot with cream cheese cake.
Super yummy! http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510498001/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5511098134/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510497701/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510507009/in/set-72157626102337719/http://www.flickr.com/photos/59513830@N03/5510515205/in/set-72157626102337719/Candy Buffet c/o Sugar and Spice
