It is always fun to celebrate birthdays! Where I come from, kids’ birthday parties are as much a big business as weddings. Event venues, party planners, cake and dessert makers, entertainers, photographers and videographers are booked six months in advance. The best locations and professionals are fully booked early so some eager moms reserve and pay in advance as soon as the baby pops out! Talk about pressure!
We veered away from a huge party as this was a destination party (for us anyway, since we needed to travel back). We decided to hold the celebration at my favorite restaurant which is warm and cozy (fits only 50 people).
Uno is a small family restaurant that serves great comfort food– the type that gives you the warm fuzzy feeling inside your tummy. Also, they have super delicious bread and pastries. Nicest people to work with, too!
We DIY-ed almost everything! The caricature and invitation were made by my artist friend Wendy.
Thanks to family and friends who helped, we put up some banners and balloons to liven up the place.
Quintbelles provided the desserts and set up. We served brownies, matcha cheesecake and plain cheesecake, calamansi cupcakes and vanilla cream cupcakes, and rice crispy treats!
Cupcake Toppers were printed, cut into circles and taped to a pick with washi tape.
Labels were printed, cut and folded to look like so:
Dessert plates were from 100yen shop and spoons were washi-fied with polka dot tapes.
Gifts were wrapped in kraft paper and a “thAnk you” note attached!
It was fun planning and doing the decors…try this for your next party 🙂
