Heya!! Last February 14, 2015 my baby turned 1 year old. It seems like yesterday when I gave birth to him and I feel like I haven't even recovered yet from my pregnancy. Okay I may have exaggerated it, but really, I haven't even started exercising yet. I still look pregnant. hahaha. It is either because time really flies so fast or may be because I have been procrastinating too much? Either, I still can't believe my baby just turned one.
Honestly, our initial plan was to just celebrate it at home, like we always do, just a simple dinner with my family because we know that in Islam, it is not permissible. Although we did celebrate it, we tried to make it as simple as we can. I didn't even hire anyone with the decorations and stuff. We practically did everything, thanks for the help of my sisters, daughter and house-helpers. I mostly got the idea from the Pinterest app. It is quite addicting, it has so many cool ideas and DIY tips. After so many options to choose from, I finally decided the theme which is an office-inspired party. Too bad I can't find the mood board I made but anyway, the colors for the theme were blue, green and brown.Sorry for the poor photos, I always forget to take photos and the one who was holding the camera was my house help. (yeah downside of not hiring a photographer. hahaha)
The party was held the day after my baby's actual birthday because the venue was fully-booked as you know it was Valentine's day. The venue was at (FISH) Fiesta Island Seafood Hub, along Visayas Avenue. It was actually the second time we held a party there, the first was when we celebrated my first son's graduation party. FISH has a really nice ambiance plus the food was delicious. You can also avail KTV for the party for only 1,500.
|Spot the real baby Fian :)|
|Balloon centerpiece were ordered at a nearby shop.|
|I really love this idea. Photos were printed on the day of the party itself, so imagine the rush. hahaha|
|Me looking so pale!! I was busy setting up the dessert table. I didn't even have the time to put on my make-up. We arrived at the venue an hour before the start of the party so everything was pretty much rushed.|
|My DIY loots for giveaways.|
|Prizes. I don't know if the kids were happy with what they got but I had to stick with my theme so most were office or school supplies instead of toys.|
|Super cute cupcakes which I don't have a closer pic. (sigh) I ordered from Sweet Overload, an online shop I found at Facebook.|
|The cake was also from Sweet Overload.|
|Again because there was no photographer, this is the only photo for the food.|
|The boys looking so handsome with their outfit.|
|Matchy Blazers. So chic!|
|Time to blow the candle, baby :)|
My God why is it taking like forever to upload photos. I will add more photos next time!
