Hi! Pagsasabayin ko rin sana bday and binyag sa baby ko, prob is tight ang budget ko, and guest ko aabot sa 50pax, san kaya aabutin ang 15K ko?
ano ba mas dapat bigyang pansin, yung binyag o birthday? kasi kung binyag solemn dapat, pero kung may bday dapat madaming games, etc. ano kaya magandang set up?
btw,sa QC area kami lapit sa mindanao ave.
or you ca try Constantine Place for a pool party
or Dazo hall naman for a hall (though may pool din dun sa Philam Village)... mura rates nila...
nicholetes... consider mo kaya ang Chowking? or opt for the birthday party, tutal naman you're celebrating na din the birthday eh...
oh and girls... Joy san gabriel makes really great-tasting cakes
DELI..ohmy!! I so love Joy San Gabriel.. She's one of my favorite supplier. I always crave for her caramel cake
nicholettes.. I mst agree with delisyus, a solemn ceremony in the church, tapos birthday party sa reception Good na ang 8-10k party for 15k sa jollibee
and oh, mommies, I make diaper cakes pala ha, a very practical gift for baby showers and baptisms
im really fascinated with the topics you have here that's why i registered just today. im a newbie in this site and a newbie mommy at the same time, just gave birth last jan11.
in connection to nicholettes' post, i would also like to ask for recommendations since my hubby and i are setting our baby's christening this summer but got problems on 2 main items:
1. a nice and solemn church accessible to our residence
2. an affordable caterer and venue for at least 70 guests
i am hoping for your help on these.
we stay in novaliches, also near mindanao ave
thanks a lot! looking forward to your opinion!
Mommies, nairaos ko rin ang binyag ng baby girl ko.
Here are some details just in case a mommy or daddy out there needs suppliers:
Church: St. Jerome Parish, Alabang (beside ATC)
Mass baptism is every Sunday, 12NN.
For Non-Parishioners (like me), below are the rates:
P250 - registration
P250 - 1st pair of sponsors
P100 - succeeding pairs
Note: You need to attend their seminar which starts at 8:45 AM and ends 11AM every Sunday. Must be attended by 2 sponsors.
Reception Venue: Leslie's Restaurant, Alabang
We didn't get the baptismal package. We reserved the whole ground floor since we have 100 guests.
Lunch buffet = P299/head x 100 pax = 29,900
Drinks (Iced tea) = 219 per pitcher (good for 3-4 pax) x 30 pitchers = 6,570
Total = 36,470
Printing cost is only P300 at P25 per square foot.
Ordered my mini cupcakes at Cuppy Puppy at P25 each (w/ topper).
My photographer, Peng Rudio, is really good. Sulit talaga!
P2,500 for 3 hours
Package comes w/ pre-baptismal shot and AVP
sino pong nakatry sa vjstreetevents21 na event organizer..okei ba sila? feedback naman po..thanks
Hi! I'm new here. My daughter is turning 7 next month. Please help me choose a song that I will use for her audiovisual presentation.
^ Hi! It may also depends on the theme. When my niece celebrated her 7th bday, her theme was Disney Princess. I used the song "A dream is wish your heart makes" the upbeat version by Disney channel circle of stars for her AVP. A nice song also is "my girl", though common it's feel good song.
Thanks a lot TINY MD! My Girl is exactly what I'm looking for! I'll use it for the intro/first part of the AVP. It's a debutante type of party. Please keep the suggestions coming. The presentation is around 9 minutes so that's about 3 songs.
Hi! My daughter is turning 7 next month and I have encountered vjstreetevents21 while surfing the internet for party hosts. Grabe sobra mura ng packages nila na naka-post. Kaya lang kc I had an experience last time na sa sobrang kakatipid . . . pumalpak! Ayun, nalaman ko sa isang forum ng mga moms na horror ang experience nya sa vjstreets21. Anyway, hindi naman siguro pare-pareho ang teams nila and I think there's always room for improvement.
Just want to share my Wolf's 1st birthday at KENNY ROGER'S QUEZON AVENUE.
Party was held on February 7, 2009, 2pm-4pm.
Party started 3pm. Medyo hindi pa naka setup pagdating namin ng 2 pm pero hindi naman kame chi-narge ng extension fee. Atsaka solo namin yung araw so no rush din.
Theme: Animal Kingdom
We rented the whole second floor although may garden venue din sila, kaso natakot kame na baka umambon (which is oo) so okay na din yung 2nd floor na lang.
We ordered yung Party Package C, worth: 9030 for 30 kids
-Fried chicken meal, mac and cheese/corn and carrot niblets, sundae and iced tea
-balloon and decors
-game prizes and loot bags (in fairness, mabigat ang loot bag nila. Atsaka paper bags na madaming laman so enjoy yung mga bagets. di katulad sa mcdo and jollibee, plastic na maliit lang yung lootbags)
-party hats, place mats etc...
For the adults, we ordered 70 Solo Meal B for 170/pax without drinks po: 11900
Nung una, sabi namin i-serve na lang yung food, pero pag dating namin dun, sinerve nila ng buffet style which was better kase atleast nakita namin na sinerve talaga nila lahat ng order namin and maganda din yung presentation lalo na yung mga sides, napaka-appetizing ng hitsura pala pag nasa chafing dishes. Hehe.
Included a very big serving of quarter roasted chicken with rice, choice of 2 sides, and muffin.
Yung mga sides, hinati namin into 4, so may 35 servings each of mac and cheese, corn and carrots, steamed vegetable and mashed potatoes para may choices yung guests.
Yung drinks ng adults, we opted not to purchase single serve drinks kase ang laki din ng babayaran if it's 40 pesos each (2800 for 70 pips) tapos pag naubos yun, yung guest iced water na lang ang iinumin.
Bumili na lang kame ng mga 15 bottles ng assorted 2L softdrinks tapos nag bayad kame ng corkage fee na 500, so that's 1300 something lang for the drinks. Drink to sawa pa yung guests namin. Ang laki ng natipid diba?
So yun na yung extent ng nagastos namin: 23000+
At yung 70 adults estimated invite guests namin, mga 40 lang ata dumating so sobrang dami naming nauwing food. We were eating chicken for the next few days.
Hindi na ako naghire ng photographer dahil madami din akong guests na aspiring photographers who promised to send me copies of the pics they took. So keri.
Program: What can I say, I'm sure familiar na kayo sa routine nila; Longest Greeting, Bring Me, etc...tapos eat na ng food then magspeech yung parents tapos blow na ng birthday candles on cake. So hindi naman kame nagexpect ng bonggang-bongga. At nakakatawa kase *** mga bagets, mga beterano na sa games masyado na kaseng familiar yung program.
Although, to be fair, yung Kenny's may add-on services sila like magicians, acrobats, animal shows etc. They even have foodcarts and choco fountains which we opted not to take advantage of. Yet. Siguro pag malaki na si Wolf and he would be able to enjoy the party kase may awareness na at talagang makakainteract na siya.
Yung host din na girl is okay na for me, hindi siya trying hard mag-english so natural nga lang kaso nagpakita nagpa-asar talo siya dun sa mga barkada ng husband ko na makulit. Pero natawa lang kame. Hehe.
Tapos add ko lang, as sort of warning.
After kase ng event, my husband and I and a few of my friends stayed kase nagchichikahan pa kame.
Tapos one of our guests called kase naiwan nila yung bracelet nung daughter nila.
Yung naglilinis, tinanong namin tapos nadescribe nya yung bracelet. Tapos sabi nga niya na may nakapulot at in-endorse daw sa guard. So pumunta yung husband ko tapos sabi nung guard may pinag-abutan daw siya na hindi nila makita. So medyo wary na kame. Kase diba dapat yung mga lost and found items naka-log yun. Eh sila wala.
It took them awhile to find the said item. And we saw the manager na medyo aligaga sa labas, calling someone on his cellphone and pacing back and forth. Buti na lang nakita nila yung bracelet kung hindi, lagot sila sa may-ari nun. Promise.
Security measures nila should be tighter. If somebody from their management could read this, hope you take my suggestions to improve your services.
Pero aside from that incident, wala namang ibang problema. Masaya kame sa service and nag-enjoy naman ata lahat ng guests namin.
To be honest, nung nasa planning stages kame, yung ine-envision ko na party for Wolf yung bonggang-bongga talaga. But heeding many advises, practicality pa din ang nangibabaw. Sa totoo lang wala naman kaming ginawa bukod sa pagbayad at pumunta na lang dun, pero as with any parties, nakaka-exhaust siya talaga. At buti na lang ganun pinili namin kase hindi ako pwedeng ma-stress dahil sa hyperthyroid ko.
Siguro nga yung bonggang party na yun, sa 7th party na ni Wolf. At least makakatulong na din siya sa preparation at may input na siya.
Sorry for the long post and hope this would help you guys in the future.
ok ba sa shakeys? kase nahihirapan ako sa venue na hindi open more on clubhouse kase ang meron dito sa amin which is open ...eh di pa naman puede ganun kase tag-ulan ang birthday ng anak ko..any suggestions please..area ng pasig?
oo nga... kung magtitipid rin lang kayo, stick with trusted brands like jollibee and mcdo... rather than risk all and try a super duper cheap supplier na you don't know for sure can deliver
peeya... apat po ata you left your multiply account so others can see your products
help mommies may alam ba kayo na balloon twisting... i want it for my baby's baptismal dis coming march 7, just for the cake lang nmn they call it balloon cake arch. and also the cake yung yummy... ayaw n kc nmin ni hubby s goldilocks and redribbon *** nmn maiba.. thanks!!!
hay nako, ako eh mapapasubo ata. i wasn't really planning on having a kiddie party on yana's 2nd birthday kasi i was thinking sa 3rd birthday na lang, then the 5th, then the 7th, etc. pero because she loves jollibee SO SO SO SO SO much, everytime anyone in the family says "yana... will celebrate.... her 2nd birthday... in Jollibee!!!", tuwang-tuwa ang bata. with matching clapping of the hands, a HUGE smile on her face, and an aim to blow an "imaginary candle" in the air. hay. talagang mapapasubo ako, mga sis. hehe.
