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.



The invitation


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!
