Aside from my son’s 8th birthday on the 3rd of November, there is also another birthday party that my kids are looking forward to. Hubby’s niece, my SIL’s daughter will be celebrating her 1st birthday party at Island Cove in Cavite. I believe it is a grand celebration but what made me think more that it is indeed one special event, is the labor of love my SIL gave all throughout their preparation. I give kudos to her for doing DIY birthday invites and birthday souvenirs. While she obviously can afford to have custom made items like those, she chose to do it by herself and I know her daughter will be truly proud of her mom for showing all those labor of love for her 1st birthday.
And with that I remembered how I also made DIY birthday items for my daughter Erin when she celebrated her 1st birthday almost 6 years ago. She was hospitalized when she was 10 months old and we thought we’re going to lose her.
That was the main reason why hubby gave her a bit grand birthday celebration on her 1st birthday. We hired “Kain Nila Catering” and they arranged all the set up and food. We had two sets of food, a kiddie meal for the little ones and a buffet for the adults. We also hired three clowns to entertain the kids and one of her Ninong sponsored an Ice Cream Maker together with the girl who manned the machine and distributed ice cream to the guests.
It was a pink and purple fairy birthday party theme and all ideas came from yours truly. Birthday parties then were simple than of parties these days:)
Allow me to share with you some of my daughter’s 1st Birthday Party Highlights:
