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 CDs 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 colorfulI 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

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. Hed 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.

http://pawie18.multiply.com/photos/photo/140/57

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.

http://pawie18.multiply.com/photos/photo/140/73

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.
