1st Birthday Preparations for November
« on: May 25, 2012, 09:11:03 am »

Hello Mommies, I am a newbie here and I want to ask your opinion about my son's 1st birthday party. We just had him baptized last May 19 and now I am planning for his birthday. Only my hubby is working so I worked on a very tight budget last time,and as I was reading the topics here I saw that most mommies spent 30k as much as 80k for their babies birthday. Now, I was wondering kung kakayanin kaya ng less than 30k na magpaparty? we have an open space naman dito sa compound namin, kaso according to a friend who is a party planner di advisable cause it might rain daw..BTW, November 03 ang birthday ni baby ko. I have a theme already and I was able to find suppliers na din for the food, cake,pinata,party hats etc. My theme is Pocoyo World pala! ;)

Magkasunod lang yung birthday ng baby ko sa baby mo sis! Nov. 2 naman sya.Ako naman i booked already sa Jollibee Regalado Fairview.Excited much lang.Kasi eto yung one of my dream party nung bata pa ako na hindi naman natupad.So sa baby ko na lang ipaparanas.Even though wala pa syang ganong alam sa mga ganyan party.I will avail na lang p/v para naman maganda ganda yung souvenir at makita niya paglaki niya.Para hassle free rin.Hirap kasi kapag sa bahay gagawin yung party.Nakaka-hagard! Dami ng aasikasuhin after pa ng party dami mo pang huhugasan.Na-experience ko yan nung binyag ng baby ko.Birthday ko rin nung time na yun.So ayun di ko man lang na-enjoy.Kasi dami kong ginagawa.

What theme did you choose? alam mo sis wala din kasi gaanong kids na pupunta eh! Unang apo kasi both sides itong baby ko. Although may mga 2nd cousin na sya pero ranging from 1 year old to 6 mos old ang age nila :)

I choose Jollitown sis.Pero like ko yung Cars theme.Di sila ganong mahigpit sa pagpasok ng ibang themes.Di lang talaga puwede yung host.Naghahanap pa ako ng ibang supplier for Cars theme.

UPDATE:

I was able to talk to the party coordinator of KFC Liberty Center. As of now wala daw silang theme for boys, so they allow other themes to get in. She even said that I can bring my own Cupcakes and Candy Buffet all I have to do is sign a waiver for it (GOOD DEAL 1. So I said yes of course! With the venue she will waive the fee once I reach 5000 worth of food from them (Good Deal 2) With photobooth,she said no corkage fee but they will charge 100/hour (GOOD DEAL 3). So far my husband and I is thinking of having my son's party there so I could have my POCOYO WORLD.

I was able to find Pocoyo Pinata, Hat, Loot Bags and Invitations online :) I also found a  DIY recipe for chocolate fondue in one of the threads here in SP. For now, may list na din ako ng possible treats for my candy buffet.

Hi mommies! My son's bday is on Nov23 but as early as now I'm planning na for it excited lang din kasi 1st baby and 1st bday.. Nagpaquote na ako sa ibat ibang caterers.. His theme will be mickeymouse clubhouse.. Nagiisip na ako ng useful na giveaway/souvenir -- I'm thinking of wooden stool, sabi ng mga mommies sa ibang chatroom sa handicrafts atbp maganda umorder tapos sa IKO's bakeshop naman daw super yum yum at affordable ang cakes.. ;D

@ ynaffitluane same pala yung bday ng mga baby naten na Nov 03. I though ako lang yung excited masyado sa birthday celeb for my baby's 1st birthday (kahit malayo p). Madame pala tayong mga mommies na ganito..,   ;D

Mickey Mouse naman yung theme na pinaplano ko for my baby since sobrang gusto niya yung mickey mouse na pillow. Limited lang yung budget ko kaya sa house yung venue (sa garage isesetup). Most of the things needed like invitations, tarpaulin, give aways etc. are personalize since fashion ko naman mgdesisgn. Food and decorations for the venue will be handle by the caterer.

Happy preparation sis...  ;)
