5 Tips For Last Minute Party Planning

My boy just turned 8 last week. His little sister and I went to his school to surprise him with a birthday cake I had customised from Cupcakes by Sonja’s, a tall chocolate cake with his favorite marshmallow frosting. The cake inside was done just right: soft, moist, delicious and very chocolatey, no wonder the kids from his… Continue reading 5 Tips For Last Minute Party Planning

A Pretty Simple Birthday Party: Christmas Picnic in the Garden

So just a few days after my own birthday party, it was my little girl’s turn… I promised myself that as she grows older, her parties will become smaller and smaller. As we mummies know, the cost of children’s parties get higher and higher too every year.  I simply don’t want her (and her friends) to expect extravagant parties… Continue reading A Pretty Simple Birthday Party: Christmas Picnic in the Garden

My Boy’s 7th Birthday: A Lego Movie Party

When my boy turned seven recently, all he wanted to do was watch his favorite The Lego Movie again.  But since turning seven is big in our family (and in Filipino culture in general), the “Mummy guilt”  hit me hard — especially since his last big celebration was his first birthday. So I decided to give… Continue reading My Boy’s 7th Birthday: A Lego Movie Party

When My Daughter Turned Two: A Vintage Ice Cream Shoppe Party

When my daughter turned two, we decided to make her birthday party smaller in size and simpler in detail than her First Birthday Party (see link). As with most children’s parties, the first is always more grand and elaborate. Generally speaking, the succeeding birthday parties tend to decrease in number of guests, food, decors, and… Continue reading When My Daughter Turned Two: A Vintage Ice Cream Shoppe Party

A Superhero’s Birthday Party

Having more than one child also means having to host more than one children’s birthday party in one year.  Since I don’t want to be labeled as a mom who plays “favorites”, this post is dedicated to my second son, my little prince charming, my silly boy, who turned 5. Since I find it quite… Continue reading A Superhero’s Birthday Party

A Homemade Sports Camp Birthday Party

In less than a month, my eldest son is turning 10. I can’t believe how time flies. (I just wrote about his 7th birthday party here). Just like most mothers out there, I too get a bit sentimental when the birthdays of my children are about to come. I guess the firstborn’s birthday has a… Continue reading A Homemade Sports Camp Birthday Party

French Carnival: My Daughter’s First Birthday

As I was going through my backlogs from last month and preparing to write my next batch of articles, I realized there’s still one big and important party that I haven’t written about yet! Yes, this party actually happened 2 years ago…so this is more than a backlog! This is in fact, a flashback to… Continue reading French Carnival: My Daughter’s First Birthday

A Pretty and Delicious Birthday Cake

  Last Saturday (December 1st), was my daughter’s 2nd birthday and being a mom who loves planning her children’s parties (see my previous post here, here and here about my past parties for them), we hosted a simple celebration with family and friends. Since my daughter is into ice cream (and cookies and cupcakes) nowadays… Continue reading A Pretty and Delicious Birthday Cake

A Big Peanut Butter Fan

I love anything with Peanut Butter. That’s a fact. This is probably the reason why this post took a long time to get published. I am always “researching” – ordering, buying and looking out for any good Peanut Butter finds out there.  And as soon as I try them, I write my review in my little… Continue reading A Big Peanut Butter Fan
