wow! this thread is really helpful. kahit paano, i was able to get some ideas on possible venues para sa 7th birthday ng son ko. next year (april) pa naman, but since medyo mahirap ang theme na gusto nya (strictly Fast and the Furious - ayaw nya ng ibang kiddie car-racing theme like Cars), i'm starting to look for possible sources/suppliers for his birthday next year. sana makakita ako ng venue within the QC or Ortigas area na kasya mga 70-80pax. and more importantly, sana magkaysa yung tight budget ko - 25K-30K - (all in - venue, decor, food, giveaways, cake, etc). i'm willing to do some DIY like for the invites, and lootbags. hirap lang kasi on my end because of my situation (single mom), so i really have to do all of the thinking, planning, and canvassing... haist..
please keep the suggestions and ideas coming. really glad to find this thread in GT.
