Kulay's 1st Birthday Party Details Part 1

As a mother, my son's 1st birthday was my second biggest production the first being his Baptism. I was really excited to make this event special for him and my family. We had limited budget so I started early scouting for the best location and party suppliers. 

Venue and Food
We estimated around 80 adult guest and 20 children so we searched for a venue that can accommodate that number. We chose Harana Native Restaurant at Torres St. because the venue and food is nice and it fits our budget. Their minimum amount is P15,000 worth of food orders to make the venue exclusive and the good thing is that they won't be counting per head or per plate. Their corkage is very reasonable; lechon is only P400, fruits for P100 and they have no corkage for cake/cupcakes. 

Cake
I am very excited about the cake because this will be Kulay's first blowing of candles. As early as September I have chosen my cake design and emailed various suppliers for quotes. I chose Tsokolate by Linfood. The owner Ma'am Rose is very accommodating and they really make good cakes, design and taste wise. I am very happy with the result :)


A little back story, when i gave Ma'am Rose the design, she didn't have the baking pan shaped as the giant cupcake yet but about a month later, a friend from abroad gave her the exact baking pan she needs to make the cupcake shaped cake. She told me "Malakas ka talaga kay Lord". BTW, the cake and cupcakes cost me P2,300 and Kulay's Ninang Ronna gave it as a gift. Thank you so much! :)

Party Host
We have a contact for a freelance party host but she was not available on the date so she recommended another host, Helen. They were able to entertain the guests and their rate is only P1,200 inclusive of host in costume with assistant, music and 10 balloon twisting.  Since the party theme is Little monster, they wore witch costume without the gory make up :D

    1. Hello! Yes kasya na ang 15k sa 70 adults, kayo naman pipili kung ano food sa 15k so pwedeng pwede pagkasyahin :-) Sadly venue and food lang ang kasama...wala pa backdrop design, projector and balloons. For Balloons you may contact Rhea-09177177432 for a very affordable balloon arrangement. Hope this helps :-)
