But before the madness, here are the details of our simple birthday party for Vito:
As you can see, Vito was transfixed. And this allowed us to put him in his Totoro costume!Bumblebee & Company. Got a great deal through Cash Cash Pinoy a few months back. We loved meeting the costume designer, Maita. She's a very gentle soul, knows how to relate with kids. Vito took to her quite fast. He was very happy and comfy in the shop--every time we went there. Great people to work with!
Swell Sweets. Gel is Vince's college buddy. In 2007, she had just left TV production and we heard she can bake. So we got her to do our wedding cake. It was such a huge hit (we served the cake as second dessert) that two years after our wedding, people were still talking about it! Naturally, we got her to do our son's cake.
Almost Gourmet. A few days before the party, I still didn't know what to serve the guests. I Tweeted for help (follow me!) and Almost Gourmet was recommended by a lot of people. So I called Joyce up and she sounded wonderful. She gave me tips on how and what to feed my party guests. The cost was reasonable, too, even cheap! Then on the day of the party, the food arrived still hot. It's like it was cooked next door! The best part is the food tasted really great!
Pretty simple, right? We're simple folk, but with very good taste! So I made sure to get really good suppliers for the party. We'll meet the super cute guests next!
