I cannot believe it's been a year since I organized Eli's Rockstar themed 1st birthday party at Centerstage (read about it here). The second birthday party was more low key. Party planning took only less than a week. For one, I had lesser suppliers to think about this time and I really had no actual theme I needed to stick by. I just knew I wanted the color scheme of orange, blue, and green.
Lower maintenance but equally fun nevertheless. The important thing is I felt the overflowing love for our baby boy. I mean that's what parties are all about right? To celebrate the precious gift that is the celebrant. I am really thankful to everyone who came to the party. It was simple and people went home happy. Thank you for your time, and precious gifts.
Here are photos to give you an idea on how the event went:
|Photobooth courtersy of Fotostyle|
Affordable and very professional. Party proper started at 11am
and they were at the venue as early as 9am. I loved the quality of their outputs.
(Thanks ninang Cookie and kuya Keith for your gift!)
|Candy buffet: courtesy of Kendi Cart|
This was a hit among kids and adults.
I highly recommend these guys as well. Sulit for the price.
(Thanks ninang Belet for this! =))
|Another shot of the candy buffet. |
Simple design just the way I like it.
|Balloon centerpieces c/o Smile Party Events & Balloon Decor.|
|Balloonderitas and Balloon Pillars|
also from Smile Party Events & Balloon Decor
|We got the Jollitown cake from Jollibee.|
Their supplier is Red Ribbon. This was a mocha cake. Yum!
|Snap watches given as souvenirs for kids (gift of my mom).|
The rest of the prizes I bought from Landmark and SM.
|Daddy Jp and the very pregnant me.|
Eli hated having his pictures taken!
Outfit me: Dress by Forever21, Cardigan from my friend Jen.
Outfit daddy: FUBU shirt, some jeans. =)
|This was what the venue looked like.|
Quite spacious in my opinion and easy lang magkita kita ang mga tao.
However, when the guests started pouring in (about 90 persons)
it became a bit crowded also. But it's all right in my opinion.
|This was during the prayer.|
|Daddy and the birthday boy looking at his guests.|
Outfit Eli: shirt by Mossimo kids, short pants by Moose Gear
|Just because I love pictures of other people taking pictures of other people.|
|Opening remarks by daddy JP.|
|The party wouldn't be complete without Jollibee's |
signature balloon popping game.
Thank you tita Tanya and ninong Mon for being so competitive.
|We did not have that many kiddie guests kaya the games was for the |
kids at heart instead. The games were lively and fun.
Especially if nanood ka lang hehe.
|One of the rare times na nagpakuha ng picture ang birthday boy.|
With daddy and his lolo Oca.
|Again competitive ang games ng adults.|
Akala mo Olympics diba?
|Since the girls lost they had to dance with Jollibee|
to the tune of... "Gangnam Style" of course!
(Note to Eli: you probably won't remember what Gangnam Style is
but during your second year national anthem yan sa mga parties!)
|Eli and 2nd cousin Enzo.|
Eli just adores Jollibee.
|I bought these non toxic bubble toys so that the kids had something|
to play with when they are bored.
|Here are the kiddie guests. |
Aren't they all cute?
(Look at Jollibee naka beautiful eyes sa likod hehe.)
|See? Love nya talaga si Jollibee.|
|I think he wants to take home Jollibee.|
|Sulit the Jollibee party just for this adorable picture.|
|I was saying to Eli:|
"Anak, say good bye na to Jollibee because we can't take him home."
|Kudos to the mascot assigned to us.|
Super hardworking and kwela. I think he stayed for more than an hour.
|He performed three songs!|
|Blowing of the cake. Mainit na ang ulo ng birthday boy.|
