Monica's First Birthday

Our Little Miss Sunshine is One.

Well, we did not throw her a big party – just a simple get together with closest family and friends to celebrate Monica’s first birthday. We’re very practical parents and to think that it’s only Beej who brings money to the household, we opted not to spend too much on our baby’s birthday. Plus Monica won’t remember a party so big naman. But, of course, if we have the super huge amount of pera, why not organize a bonggang party right? 🙂

Anyhow, we chose Little Miss Sunshine because as you all know, Monica is a ray of sunshine to us and to those people who love and adore her. She has always been a happy and smiling baby – with only less than 10 episodes of fussiness in her 1 year of existence. Imagine how bait and happy my baby is? Such a darling, really! <3

We initially thought of just celebrating her birthday at Jollibee: 1. Because it’s a complete package, affordable at that. 2. The daddy loves Jollibee – like the dancing mascot! Haha.

But the closest Jollibee in our area could not accommodate 100pax so we let it go and looked for another one. I thought of the Dad’s Merienda buffet (Glorietta) and inquired. Yay for free function room and sound system usage for a guaranteed guests of 100. Super nice! The merienda buffet is P258 per person only! What a deal! To cut it short, we signed the contract and pushed through with the plan: just have merienda, simple styling, and blow the cake ceremony for Monica.

It was a success I must say! Guests went home busog and had fun doing some chika chika with common friends. Our birthday girl didn’t smile a lot during the party, but hey, she did not cry at all. Probably just gulat with all the people trying to greet her. Haha.
