My new found hobby..

Taking pictures! I've enjoyed doing this for quite some time now but never really had the chance to buy a good camera. Anyhow, now that I have a digital camera along with me, i'll try to show you how I see things my way.=)

Take a peek at my new pHoto bLog!

DIY Preps for my little CJ's coming 1st birthday

All mommies are excited to prepare for their baby's first birthday party. But with the rising cost of our basic commodities, mommies nowadays learn to create ways on how to minimize the budget for the parties they throw.

I for one rebudgeted for my baby's coming birthday party. From my initial 30k budget, i had to trim it down to 15k.

Here are some things i did / plan to do to make this 15k budget a reality:

1. Change the party place.
The manager of Max's Restaurant in Greenhills is one of our daughter's godmother and since she volunteered to help and give discounts, our first choice was Max's. I have already started doing some DIYs with the Royal Theme in concept but since i had to cut on the budget, we've decided to have the party in Jollibee McKinley instead. My reason for choosing this Fastfood resto:

a. All kids love Jollibee
b. The Jollibee mascot is already included in the package, and
c. the mascot also gets to dance, and join the fun for 30 mins!
d. It's very near our place. Most of our guest are our neighbors so this is a big plus factor if we think of convenience.
e. Ofcourse the package is cheap! Eveything is included like the name tag, the lootbags, the invitations, the decors, the party host, the games, and the prices..

2. Photo/Videographer.
I wanted to hire a pro, but since im on a tight budget, my friends/cousins would be a great option here.

3. Create my DIYs.
My budget will not afford professional party planners. So to make this party more special, I started using my artistic talents to do the backdrop, souvenirs/table centerpiece, and signature frame..

Here are some of my DIY's.

Hey, feel free to comment coz i can still do some adjustments here.

Thanks for the read!

  1. Hi, I had my son's 1st birthday party at McDo because I had a tight budget. Like you, I also DIYed some stuff.

    This year, he's turning 3 and since he's already in toddler school, I've decided to prepare a simple celebration in class. Mas magaan din sa budget!
