Here is the actual write-up of Anika's mom Leslie about her daughter's party

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥


Anika just had her 3rd birthday celebration and after preparing for months, I can say, I really got what i wanted. haha!

Since she was turning 3, we knew she would enjoy her party a lot more than her previous ones. So we really did make an extra effort to make something special for her.

But I think it wouldn't have turned out as it did if it weren't for the really great suppliers I had. (ok, some were not as great as the others, but I promised R-Jay not to dwell on the ugly parts since the party was 95% successful)

If any of you are interested to get party suppliers here are some of the ones we used.

Party Set-up was done by Jhoanne Alon (09198047006) of polkadotevens.multiply.com. It was our first event together... and it will surely not be our last! I have no intentions of getting any other person since Jhoanne was extremely accommodating! She was suppose to just do the dress-up but she was so nice, she stayed the whole party and even took care of the registration booth and everything that came with it. She kept on going to me asking if i needed anything and seeing to it the small little things were all taken cared of! Those were not part of her job anymore but I truly appreciated all the help.


When the kids arrived, they were made to sign a guestbook also c/o Jhoanne. After they were given small treasure maps which indicated all the games and activities they could enjoy that afternoon. The treasure maps were done by business.shoppe. multiply.com. Kids were also made to pick from several types of pirate masks available (made by partybasics.multiply.com c/o heidi yao 09176289802), they also had eye patches (i had these made) and bandanas (some from jhoanne, some from divi & some from joyce).

We had 3 game booths. Pirates and mermaids, croco fun and catch the fish... all from Jhoanne. i just added prizes since they came with 30 prizes each and I was expecting a lot more kids than that.

Face painting and glitter tattoo was done by Joyce Tambangan (09194834683). Super nice!!!

I got my mylar balloons from partybasics.mutiply too. but Jhoanne again added to what i got.

To add more decors, I got pirate accessories/toys from Oriental trading and amazon.

All our prizes came from divisoria. I asked my office staff to spend one saturday morning there searching for pirate stuff and other prizes.

The yummy food we served was from Sitio Oriente. (c/o Rey/Alvin 7338711/7359513) This was our 3rd party with them and everytime, they do not disappoint. I got a lot of positive comments regarding this and even if the party was over, there was so much food left! Plus I had so much requests like to add more chairs and tables, to change the free adult centerpieces to balloons for all the kids tables, to asking for fish bowls for our fresh fish, to requesting for colored papers plates... everything they gave me!... with no additional fees!

Of course our party would not be complete without food carts... and it is always R-Jay's favorites... cotton candy, snow cone and dirty ice cream. We always get them from Triple MJ (I forgot their new name Vessel of something) 09202545123/09185285476. Mario and his wife Jasmin are very easy to talk to and their prices are so low compared to party suppliers. I can't get from anyone else after I met them.

Birthday cake and cupcakes were from Cakecraft but I also added 11 dozens of cupcakes for Cupcakesforless.multiply.com. I just chances upon her site and her cupcakes were really really affordable.

Photo/video was done by Revoly Cortez. Rev (09159403451) used to work as a photojournalist for one of the leading newspapers until he decided to do private work. He now takes care of all the photo and videos of our parties. I think he just cant say no to me so everything I asked for, he also gave. We had on-the spot printing of pictures (which we placed on Monkey Pirate Picture frames I got from Oriental trading), a photo mosaic of Anika, a tarpaulin backdrop for the photos, an Avp. He is also giving us both the edited and unedited video of our party with all the pictures.

Party host was Wacky. (09193217244) He was able to entertain both kids and adults plus he speaks in english so Anika's foreign classmates were able to understand the whole party. haha! Wacky is also easy to talk to and is very affordable. He also makes sure no one gets bored at the party.

We had 2 statue mimers. I saw them at Festival Mall a couple of months ago and Anika just didn't want to leave them! I got them directly so it was less than usual. (Rundell 0928451904)

Our sound system was from Jansen. (09178537028) We've used him before and he is very reliable.

Business.shoppe also did our pop-up invites, 5x5 guestbook & personalized school supplies.

Charms!charms!multiply.com c/o myn made our thank you tags and additional invites.

I also ordered thank you stickers from iprint.

Pinatas were also from Jhoanne. We got a tinkerbell and captain hook pinata.We had our guests come in pirate costumes so that Anika would stand out as Tinkerbell. Rjay dressed up as Captain Hook and I was Peter Pan. We had all our costumes made from Cargin's Dance wear (9864566). He has been doing our costumes for many years now. He also did our lootbags, brown drawstring bags which i placed pirate pins on.

I prepared two types of lootbags. One for babies (1 1/2 and below) and another for toddlers and older kids. The one for babies contained a small doll and some snacks while the other lootbag had the personalized school supplies and more snacks. I also personalized everything so each kid had their names on their bags. Wanted this so everyone would surely bring home something.

We also had personalized chocolate bars made. It had Anika's picture and details and i placed small names on each... again so that everyone would be able to get and bring home one. I got this from Anne's sweettooth.mulitply. We gave this to the adults before they left the venue.

Since we knew it was an effort to dress up for the party, we gave out "awards" for the best costumes and several other categories we could think of. Jhoanne found crocodile dolls that the kids and adults liked.

I was also worried that the party suppliers wouldnt have anything to eat, plus the drivers of our visitors would go hungry so I had packed merienda ordered for them. I got this from Melvin de los Santos. (09283156084). Cheap but good and clean.

We also had portraits and an avp made from Picture Company Rockwell.

All in all, we had great people to help us out with our party so if any of you may need party suppliers, i hope you can consider them. (",)
