For their 7th, our twin girls requested for a simple school party, and asked for Word World as their theme. Since February 26 fell on a Saturday, we opted to celebrate it Thursday (February 24th) .

   For the food we served spaghetti, hotdogs, chicken nuggets and choco chip cookies with orange juice. I also availed of the Nestle Party Package for the ice cream.

   I got some really cute stuff off the Net for their invitations, activity sheets for the give aways, thank you cards, name tags and loot bag decors.

   Here are some pictures:

Invitations: I just got some Word World invites off the net and printed them…

Activity Sheets: Also got these from the Word World site. The kids were so excited to get started on their activity sheets right away. I just bought short brown envelopes and placed the activity sheets inside along with the CD’s of the first season of Word World we burned.

Loot bags: I bought some brown bags and curling ribbons, then pasted some WW table confetti on the loot bags to make it more colorful…I put some candies, lollies, cookies and wafer sticks inside as loots.

   I got their cake and cupcakes from Miss Nina of Yummy Mommy Cupcakes. She has a promo: 1 cut-out theme cake (either mocha or orange flavor) along with 30 cupcakes all for P1,600.00. The cake and cupcakes were a hit among the kids, they  found Dog cute, as well as the cupcakes.

   Of course for side entertainment/souvenirs, we had our very own photobooth, PARTY TREASURES PHOTO BOOTH   Good thing we were allowed by the school to do so.  Here are some pictures of my kids with their guests…

   All in all, it was a very fun party. The kids enjoyed a lot, not bad for a party na super madalian inayos... did most of the preps in 3 days time... hehe... hopefully next time I'd have more time to spare para mas masaya 
Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably. And never regret anything that made you smile.

JOEHNA'S 3RD BIRTHDAY
March 4, 2011


Theme: Angelina Ballerina Nutcracker Sweet

List of Suppliers:

VENUE - CSI Stadia, Dagupan City, Pangasinan
This is so far the best events place in Dagupan, Pangasinan. Place is very well maintained, huge parking, good air conditioning system, lobby can accommodate hundred people and is furnished with leather sofa sets. Overall, I am very happy with this venue.

CATERER - Jam Sweet Jam
Jam Sweet Jam is one of my husband's favorite here in Pangasinan. He’d trade it for Gloria Maris. Very easy to deal with and all of our requests were granted. Two thumbs up for this supplier!

For the adult menu we had: LENGUA IN CREAM MUSHROOM SAUCE, FISH WITH SCALLION SAUCE, CHICKEN GALANTINE, LASAGNA, RICE, ASSORTED TORTES and Soda. 440/pax

For the kiddie menu we had: SPAGHETTI WITH BOLOGNESE, CHICKEN LOLLIPOPS, HOTDOG WITH MALLOWS, MINI CHEESEBURGER, PIZZA SLICES, JELLO SHOTS and Fruit Juice. 280/pax

Caterer also provided Tiffany Chairs and skirting for all tables including the stage. Yummy food & good service.

PARTY DECOR / VENUE DRESS UP - Hi 5 Parties by Kathleen dela Merced
Kathleen arrived a day before the party to set up the decor. Hi-5 provided swags, styro backdrop, styro entrance, centerpiece, balloon decor and snowflakes ceiling accent. We were so impressed with the outcome of the decor. We were totally in awe! Hi 5 Parties will always be my non negotiable. Gotta love Kathleen!

HOST / MAGICIAN
- Ruther Urquia
We were privileged to have Ruther for the second time. He was one of the entertainers during Joehna's 1st Birthday. He is undeniably the family's favorite. The kids and adults had so much fun watching his performance. He's really the life of the party. I really appreciate that he made sure that all kids would take home a prize. As usual his act was a hit! Galing galing talaga.

PHOTO / VIDEO - Faces Portraits
Booked P/V two weeks before the party. I got the 1 photographer and 1 videographer package. The package also includes a pre-shoot, pictures were used for the tarpaulin (served at gift table backdrop) and sign frame. Super nice layout, loved it! Can't wait to get proofs from them.

ADDITIONAL ENTERTAINMENT - Ballet dancers from First Allegro Dance School,
Baguio
This is one of my daughter's request. I am just happy to find this group and they're very good with kids. I requested for 2 Angelina songs (Dancing Butterfly & I will be a Star) and Nutcracker Suite. Super nice! They even taught the kids some dance steps and then they also joined us during the birthday parade. The guests had fun watching them even Ruther loved them!

CUPCAKES - Sugarbox
Ordered 100 pcs cupcakes from Emily Uy-Swing. I had mudcake, marble pound, banana choco chip and red velvet. Yum! My sister had to take home the cupcakes from Manila to Pangasinan. So happy that Emily placed the cupcakes in individual boxes, it arrived here safe and flawless!

CUPCAKE STAND
- Hi 5 Parties
Gotta love the cupcake stand! Really a unique way of displaying the fabulous cupcakes Emily made.

Also ordered firework candle because my daughter loves fireworks so much! http://pawie18.multiply.com/photos/photo/140/50

SIDE ENTERTAINMENT - Mini Playground from CSI Mall
Booked a day before the party. Funny because they did the set up after 2 hours I called them up with no down payment! Nahiya naman ako, I paid in full when I arrived at the venue after they set up.

GIVEAWAYS - Kiddie Stools from Handicrafts atbp
Grace & Jojo were very easy to deal with. After a few revisions, they were able to come up with the stool design I really wanted. Ordered 60 pcs for the kids. They loved it!

For boys: http://pawie18.multiply.com/photos/photo/140/48
For girls: http://pawie18.multiply.com/photos/photo/140/5

LOOT BAGS
- Non woven bags ordered thru sulit.ph
Nice, affordable and something you can use again. Placed a few goodies inside: pretzels, bread pan, eggnog, bread sticks and sandwich biscuits.

PARTY ATTIRE - Dress from Baby Fashionistas, Shoes from Rustans
Love my kids’ dresses! Baby Fashionistas is really my default choice when it comes to my daughters' dresses.

Theme:  It's a small world

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  ;D  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  :D Thank God, I did the right decision. We had magical and unique  party for our little princess  ;D
 
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.

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! ;D 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 :D 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  :)

My Princess Sofia Jae’s Outfit – Cecilio Abad and Rajito by Rajo Laurel

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  :)

Party Planner/Decorations: Hi5 Parties by Kathleen Dela Merced

She’s heavent sent :D 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! ;D

I highly recommend her. She can also works with your budget :D and Super easy to work with  :) You can never go wrong with her. She will be your instant bestfriend  :)

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  :)

Photos are posted in my FB and the photos that i posted :)

Videographer: Thor Prod

I super super super  love this team! :D 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. :D 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. :D

Cake – Les Sucreries

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 Sucreries.  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! ;D
