  • Think pulsating rhythms. Bright colors. Festive music. That’s just the vibe you’d get if you had the fortune of experiencing a real carnaval. And with animated films like Rio, full of song, dance, and lively movement, your kids will definitely jump in excitement if you give them just this experience for their birthday party.

    The good news, though, is that you don’t need a lot of time or a lot of money to throw a carnaval birthday party. Patricia Hizon, sportscaster, blogger, and busy mom, just threw a birthday bash for her eldest son, Vicente, when he turned seven years old last month. 

    Would you believe that it took her just less than a week to prepare everything, after she got back from covering the SEA Games in Indonesia? Good thing she already had her set of suki suppliers, and with the help of her husband Vince, her household staff, staff from her Everyday Is Your Birthday foundation, she simply made several calls and the party came together.

    We asked Shaan what the most rewarding thing is about personally organizing her child’s birthday party, and her answer warmed our hearts. 

    “He thanked me, kissed me and hugged me and told me that he had the best party in the world. That was enough for me. It was a bonus that each kid left all sweaty, semi dirty, but extremely happy!”
