Last Sunday which is apparently also Mother’s day (my first!) was also Mason’s Baby shower. As I mentioned in my previous post, my bestfriends and I did and created every detail for the the party.
Weeks before the party we were already planning. I told them that I would like a Mustache theme because I saw one post on the internet about it and fell inlove. I couldnt do the Navy theme because Bryan is not a Marine or what haha so Mustache is the best option and it is easy to draw or cut out.
2weeks before the event we went out and had a dinner at a mall in which we imagined what we would want the party to be. Most of the plans about the backdrop, centerpiece and the cake are from them. we bought the materials, went to daiso,national bookstore and grocery to buy them. I told them that the cupcakes, games, prizes and favors would be on me because I want to thank the guests personally.
At work, I multitasked, I cut print outs and think of ways in which I can design the favors. I at least had 3 samples before I finally decided on what I want in which I created just 2 days before the party. I asked my work mate to buy huge cookies for me. She got me 6 packs of cookies that’s 660php all in.
A week before the event, we went to Mich’s house so we could start with the decors. It was a hot day, Irene was not even feeling well but they were determined to complete the Diaper cake on that day. I helped out with cut outs. We spent all afternoon and came home past 10pm.
A day before the event, Irene was still a bit off so we just communicated through Facebook and Michelle continued with the plan. I didn’t go because I need to complete the favors and cupcake toppers as well. Also, aside from the diaper cake, I have no idea what they would do with the back drop.
On the day of the event, Bryan and I went out early to buy cupcakes at brownies. They were selling 3 for 100 cakes so we bought 9. That’s 300php. We grabbed a taxi asked to first go to Mich’s house to fetch them. We all went together at the place.
At Shakeys we saw one of our high school friends, Sheryl. The earliest bird of all our guests (an hour early!) She helped out in putting all the decors.
Bryan has not yet uploaded the photos on his DSLR so bear with the Iphone photos I grabbed from my friends’ posts.
This was the final result of all the hardwork. Bryan helped out as well in putting all the banners and letters of Mason’s name.
These were the cookie favors that I personally wrapped.This was just a simple white paper bag with plastic bag inside and I decorated with watashi tape, blue ribbon and the tag. Bryan also helped in packing and wrapping all the cookies with me.
The party prizes, a wooden toiletry set. I bought them at Japan homes for 80php. I bought 5 so its a total of 400php. Added blue ribbons and tags.
The cupcakes and cupcake toppers (i just searched google and printed them out) in which I got the toothpicks from a restaurant a night before the party. Hah!
Of course my favorite cake ever! The three later diaper cake of Mason! This was really effort to do. I saw how tired Mich and Irene were while doing this.
Michelle also created and printed out a stand that says Mason’s Mustache bash! Cute!
let’s not forget the banners!! We bought it at the grocery and Michelle added letters on them!
Im not really sure about this haha! But this was the centerpiece for each table.
It was just a simple celebration and I didn’t expect anything for the party decors but everything turned out more than what we hoped for. This is just one of those events and celebrations that we will be having now that we are having Mason. We’re so thankful for my two best friends. Without them this will not be a success. I am truly happy that we have these people to help us out and are very supportive. Looking forward to more party planning with them!!
