So, here it is the most exciting part of party planning– the party details and DIYs! My husband, Cj would always ask me why do I need to DIY it if there’s a ready-made available in the market, I simply said “nothing beats DIY cause it’s unique”. Agree?! It’s still different when you do it yourself cause it was really self-fulfilling especially when you receive lots of compliments from other people. And besides I am really OC when it comes to details. 🙂
Balloon Decor: JD’s Party Shop
We really don’t want to spend much money for the decorations. So, this OC and Frugalicious Mommy look for suppliers that offers cheap price with good services. And so, after checking various forums and websites, I finally found the perfect balloon decor supplier for my son’s birthday party, it was JD’s Party Shop. I was stumbled when I checked the rates and packages. It was the most friendly budget balloon packages! The regular balloon packages ranges from Php2,000 to Php5,000. I just checked their site now and I found out that they have budget friendly balloon packages now that ranges from Php1,500 to Php3,000 only it includes the transpo fee. Sayang di ko na naabutan yang promo nila. Hehe You can check out the prices here. The prices may vary if there’s an additional balloons. The one that I got was the regular balloon packages. In my case, I ordered the regular balloon package 3,000-A, but since I modified the designs and I added more balloons and our total bill became Php4,300. But its fine cause it was still cheap compare to the other balloon suppliers that sometimes costs more than Php10,000 pesosesoses. The regular balloon package 3,000-A consist of 50pcs ballonderitas without ribbon, 2pcs- 7 layer pillars with star mylar, 1 link cake arch and 10 simple centerpiece. Ms. Jesslyn of JD’s Party Shop is very accommodating despite of my demands. We corresponded via email and text too. I booked them last March, we just meet at Trinoma Mall.
Supposed to be the table centerpiece is a number mylar but unfortunately it wasn’t available to their balloon suppliers and so they changed it into star mylar instead. I was sad and hesitant at first but when I saw the centerpiece on the event I was surprised cause I love how it turned out. They arrived early at the venue and they finished the set up at 12pm, 1hour before the party started. Not to mention that Jesslyn and her assistant did the whole set up and they’re both girls pa. Hat’s off to the both of you! Oh well, what can I say? you did a great job! 🙂
The message board was DIY also. I got this idea from Smart Parenting May issue. Instead of buying a guest book, we just made our own message board. It was printed in oslo paper, thanks to my CIL Jus (our official graphic artist) for the layout design. And then I added colorful pens cause I know not all the guests have their pens on them. The kids were able to take home the colorful pens too. 🙂
I asked the guests to drop their messages in the fish bowl. 🙂
Nowadays, invitation cards is not necessary at all since we are using the events in Facebook. But of course we need to attach the soft copy of the invitation and map to Facebook event. We only print 20 copies of invitations, we distributed it to our big boss’ at the office and to our neighbors and relatives who is near to our place. For those who live in far places we just invited them thru Facebook events.
All party tags was DIY-ed. We also had “Thank You” cards in every table. My initial plan was to put the characters of Charlie and the Numbers in the table just like what I did in the candy buffet but I decided to forgo it cause not everybody will notice that especially if they’re not so OC and Usi like me. Hehe
The party hat is my favorite in all the DIYs, cause its super cute! I really enjoyed doing the party Hats ,yes I did! I got the idea in the awesome site Oh Happy Day. My BIL, Kuya Francis, my CIL,Sharmaine and my sister, Isang helped me in doing the party hats. We used cartolina ,ribbons, crêpe paper in this party hat. The number 1 center design was made by my CIL, Jus (I owe him a lot!), it was printed in a sticker paper. You can check the easy-peasy step on how to make a party hats here.
Even the kids likes it too! Most of the time the party hat wasn’t noticed by the kids but this time (surprisingly) most of the kids wore the party hats!
The tarpaulin was a gift from our doting friend, Lhei and his hubby, Hansel. Thank you guys for this wonderful gift. I really love the layout ah, in fairness! And of course, what I really like about the tarp? It’s unique! 🙂
Hmmm.. what else?! I guess that’s all the details and DIYs. Oh, I’m really blessed to have worked with such really good suppliers who really delivered. Special thanks to my very kind and generous family and friends who helped us in organizing this birthday party. I owe you a lot! 🙂
