Our youngest child Lucia celebrated her birthday recently. There’s so much to be thankful for her first year: her two front teeth, being able to walk and talk a few words, continuing to be a healthy and a happy baby! We decided to splurge a little on a children’s party at The Creamery.
Well, I think “splurge” isn’t really the word since the venue wasn’t a five star hotel. The Creamery is an ice cream parlor at the Mall of Asia and we held the party there because of their reasonable rates which already included the party banner, theme decor, balloon set up, invitation cards, loot bags, party host and staff in themed costumes. If you want a venue that’s a little off the grid from the usual fastfood party set up of McDonald’s and Jollibee, this is it!
The venue is only for small and medium sized parties though, not for big ones. Here’s a peek of the the place during our special day:
What I liked about the Creamery: we can bring in the birthday cake and other desserts without any corkage fee. Prior to the day, I was obsessed with getting a good Hello Kitty cake for Lucia since she loves the Kitty 😀 I found a good design at Aggy’s bakeshop in BF Homes, Paranaque and it was only P1,700. Icing was a bit too sweet, but otherwise perfect. Meowww!
I opted for a ready-made birthday party package to spare me from the stress of preparations. My only labor of love was making the cupcakes which follows the Princess theme of the party. I alternated between chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with chocolate buttercream and lemon cream cheese frosting. Still, it wasn’t a hassle decorating the cupcakes with Princess-themed cupcake holders from Gourdo’s and ready-made icing toppers I bought from my last trip to Australia.
They’re ready….. YAY!
In this sequence, Lucia is reunited with her godparents. She cried when Ninong Aldrin held her for the first time.
More separation anxiety when Ninang Remy carries her. Awww!
Finally, the birthday girl calms down and gets to play. Lucia’s party outfit from Twilo and her shoes from this Brazilian shoe company called Bical. 😀
Thanks to all the friends who attended and sent in gifts. We had a fun time at The Creamery!
