Cheers to more party planning DIY feats! Although, I thought that my party planning stints will take back stage this year, but no-t! My recent was my son's 7th birthday, and so far, we agreed that we won't have elaborate parties for him anymore, he's now swayed to do other stuff like perhaps a trip (my wish!) or just an intimate gathering with his friends and ours. Until recently, I thought that I wouldn't plan a party anytime soon, but fret not, we have a new baby in our family, my nephew baby Yvo and another nephew coming soon. And you ought to know that I'm a stage auntie, so bring on the parties! ^_^ His Christening day was earlier than originally planned because we had families moving out of the country soon, so it was quickly decided to hold it last time. I volunteered to do this and that! I did it a day before, and during the day itself! I'm feeling mighty happy! ^_^
Thanks to Nido and Smart Parenting, I have Goldilocks Gift Certificates to use and to gift to my heart's delight. I went to SM Megamall Goldilocks branch the day before (Friday), since we're coming from Manila, and the event was in Pampanga, I thought I can order in Manila and pick up in Pampanga. It seemed pretty complicated, so I opted otherwise. Although they were very helpful. Plus to get a Baptism Cake with themed decors etc, it needed at least 3 days lead time to order it. So the better option was just to get the standard cake in Pampanga, hoping for the biggest size to be available. I just bought a Decorate Your Cake Baby Boy Christening Topper. I requested for more blue floral icing decors at minimal additional cost.
Although, we had a major mishap with the caterer! I don't want to talk about it! But overall, Yvo is a happy Christian boy now! Welcome to the Christian World Baby Yvo! ^_^ ...Will soon be planning your first birthday party! Haha! Cheers! ^_^
|So adorable! I got his Christening Outfit at SM Store in Megamall. Having attended SM Kids' Fashion Week show from last time, I know that the babies line at SM Kids' Fashion are equally adorable, and practically priced too. ^_^|
|I printed the personalized Prayer card and the sticker. Thanks to my ever reliable HP Printer. Sticker paper and card stock for the prayer card. I recommend getting a matte sticker paper than glossy to avoid smudging. I used the picmonkey.com for the photo layout and designing.|
|Balloon Centerpieces. Ahhh...would have wanted to use Qualatex, but no time to buy.|
|Goldilocks Chocolate Marble Cake 16 x 24.|
|Tadaa! ^_^ ...with the DYC Goldilocks Baptism Topper. It's a butter icing cake, so we had to keep it in a cool A/C place prior to the event.|
