aka Orange and Blue, I love you!
I really wanted an intimate handmade party for Aki’s second birthday. I wanted to do make the menu, plan activities and most of all, do the decors. Hubb,l on the other hand, wanted big party. For democracy’s sake, I checked out the nearest Jollibee branch. Fastfood parties are easier to plan. Less hassle for the party mom because you can get everything in-house. However, having your party outside your house means you have to follow someone else’s rules. When they the Jollibee party personnel told me that they won’t let me hang handmade banderitas and pom poms,I realized that I do want to go thru the hassle and stress of planning a party from scratch.
Speaking fo scratch, the cost of the materials for the decors was 160 bucks plus another 100 for the pictures, but to me the outcome was priceless!
On the left side of the picture are long orange and blue zigzags that were hung above the food.

I gathered Aki’s orange and blue toys and used them as decors.
My tita from London bought this moose from Ikea from 0.5 pounds! She said it was on sale because was a bit dusty. After a quick bath in her washing machine, voila, the perfect toy for our orange and blue party for only 30 pesos!
To make the entrance a little cheery, I placed a pompom with one side flattened on the door.
I have said it already and I will say it again, Orange and Blue, I love you!
