party namin last Sunday..we reserved for 70pax..60 adults and 10 kids..Nung mismong araw ng event, marami sa relatives ko ang di nakapunta kasi may sakit or dahil rainy day nun. Nalungkot ako kasi Yung parents ko lang at yung family ng tito ko ang umattend pero its a good thing na rin kasi literal na isang jeep ang dumating sa relatives ni hubby..na-shock nga kami..buti na lang exactly 70 lahat ng tao. Yung older kids got the adult menu. Nakakainis lang yung iba kasi choosy ang parents, yung maliliit na bata  gusto nila pang adult din yung meal di naman naubos (takaw-tingin lang). Nasayang lang food (sorry ha, pero kasi maraming bata ang nagugutom..ayoko lang ng nagsasayang ng food).

And then, sa loot bags..it's a good thing na sa harap ko nilagay kasi kung hindi, baka nag-Houdini act nanaman ang mga giveaways ko. Yung mga pamangkin ko, may name tag na agad ang loot bag para di na kunin ng iba. The host was great because when he announced na magbibigay na ng lootbag, yung mga kids sumugod na sa harap (yung pamangkin ko, anak ng friends ko and pamangkin ni hubby naipit na..). Yung host, asked the kids to line up properly otherwise they won't get a lootbag. Nag-line up naman sila. Yung mga mommies lang nung ibang kids, pinabalik pa yung ibang anak..pahingi daw si ganito, si ganiyan..kung pwede ganitong kulay..(parang umoorder lang). Buti na lang may excess lootbag kami.

When the party ended akala ko ok na lahat, then my mom told me na yung food nila ng papa ko kinuha daw nung ibang kids. Di daw nila kasi nakain yung food kasi nabusog agad sila. Nilagay lang nila sa table nila tapos kinuha daw nung kids.

Well, hirap talaga i-control ang behavior ng kids pero sana naman turuan sila ng right manners ng parents di ba? Hindi yung sila pa ang magsasabi na gagawin nila yung mga bagay na yun.

^yung sa akin sis, mga 1-5 years old lang gusto ng mommy nila naka-adult meal (marami kasi sila na ganun gusto). Yung mag-2 year-old baby nga ni SIL, di na niya kinuhaan ng food, subuan na lang daw niya sa share niya kasi di naman daw mauubos..turns out, tama SIL ko..yung ibang moms na nag-request, dami left overs..

kaya minsan, better pa to have one meal for all.

Yung sa akin kasi, may catering na for adults, pero yung adults kumuha pa rin ng Jollibee food which is for kids only.  :)

Di talaga maiiwasan pasaway, natawa ako kasi nakuhanan pa ng videographer kung sino yung adult na kumuha ng extra Jollibee food.  >:(

Minsan, the raw shots from videographer are that important. hehe!

@ sis pompz, swerte lang talaga na may pangrefill kami, may mga boxes na nakatago sa skirt nung tables.

My mom was there to refill the candy jars.  :)

Oh well, what can we do, dapat lang lagi may back up plan.  ;)

Once I got tagged to my sister's officemate's daughter's bday party. Nagpaalam naman sister ko na magsasama siya ng extra guest (bitbit ko pa mga anak ko) at pumayag naman yung host. Para naman hindi nakakahiya dahil hindi naman kami magkakilala, I got a very nice gift nalang for the celebrant.

I saw a ppost regarding this..pero im not sure if applicable to all.. some venues kc require to submit list for security reasons (usually for suppliers, etc) pero its a good way na din to count and RSVP yung guest ang reason yung requirement ng venue.. I'm torn to do this or not for my daughter's upcoming party.. usually 130 up ang guests namin na adults and i know it would blow pa (lol)  e medyo pricey yung catering..
