Am so excited to share the pictures and stories of my most awaited day of the year, Aki’s birthday party.
You see, I started conceptualizing this party, way before my first stretch mark came. I finalized the theme around April last year. I knew that regardless of the theme,the amount of money burned, the size of the cake, Aki will have no recollection of his first party. So might as well, plan a party with a theme that my next favorite kids, my nephews and nieces, adore.
The party planner was … drum rolls please… me! Around 90% of the creative direction came from my scatterbrained self. From the design of the backdrop to the wordings of the invite. From the “signages” to the floor plan. It was mostly me! As I jokingly told my friends, the party was for Aki and his mommy. hehehe.
As OC and as hands-on as I was, budget was still a major concern. Franco and I agreed that we will spend no more than 50K for this event. Unfortunately, we exceed the budget but the deviation was only by 15%. Not bad considering we had 100 adult guests and 30 kids. Would you believe, we only spent less than 50 bucks on each lootbag?
I thank the patient suppliers, and supportive family and friends who executed my ideas. It would not had been a success without you!
So without further ado..
Here are some pictures from the party
Can you guess the theme?
I will blog about the party soon!
