So yeah, she’s already two and we gave her a Tangled Theme for her birthday, obviously for the reason that she’s glued to “tita Rapunzel”…. She adores and loves the movie so much that she makes us watch it at least twice a day. I can hear me speak the lines without stutter already. (bravo to mommy)
Unlike her First Birthday that was a bit grand, we threw her a simpler birthday party. We celebrated her birthday with close friends and families. So tangled alright, the only problem I had was that there weren’t enough party supplies for our theme and that I had only two weeks to prepare for the party.
I did the impossible, and made a lot of DIYs in two weeks’ time. Good thing I have few happy helpers who are inclined and happy to give a hand. I could have done so much better if I started planning early, that’s a lesson learned but then again my mind and body seems to work better on the 11th hour. Hhehehe…
But nonetheless Sophia’s 2nd birthday, like the first was a” Mom’s and Dad’s work of love”.
We held her party at Kaka and Mimi's ( my parent's) House. Thanks to the ever stage grandparents we've saved a lot of mulah !!!
Let me present to you Sophia's tarpaulin. It took me a week to make the layout. It was brain wrecking, promise. But I was very happy and contented with the outcome. When Sophia saw it she jumped up and down with adoration and delight. She was so happy. I was so proud of myself. (patting myself for a job well done)
Oh the Buntings, I made them too. I got the idea from here.
The Invitation and the mini standees:
I made a tower invitation for Sophie, got the inspiration from here. I just inserted her picture and instead of the blond hair Rapunzel has I made her a golden brown hair out of embroidery yarn to match her natural hair color.
The mini standees were so fun to make, and it was a hit. I made 7 mini standees with different pictures of her, after the party everybody took it as a souvenir and some asked me if I can make more so they can all have one each. But hey it was part of the centrepiece not a souvenir lol.
Every princess deserves a castle. Now this one I give credits to Maury. He built it for her unica hija.
I made her standees the night before her birthday. It seems complicated to do but it's actually easy only time consuming.
DIY Cake and Cupcake Toppers, Lollipop Topiary, Pascal Blower and Sophie's Picture for more personal touch.
Doing a DIY home birthday party is fun but very challenging especially for working moms like me. I've learned a few lessons, first to plan ahead of time like 3 months maybe. Second is to hire or assign someone to do the photography so nothing is going to be missed out, because at the middle of the party Nikky (our DSLR) died on me because I forgot to charge it.... Arghhhh.... And lastly, ask help from your friend or family because even if we are super moms, we only got 2 hands and we can only do so much.
If you love children’s party, I've got a few collections here
