My December started with a bang as I rang in the holidays with a Mommy Bloggers Philippines Christmas Party! We had a Winter Wonderland themed party on December 5 at Spaces by Babyland and I was super psyched. I’m really happy to have been able to be a part of this event and I’m looking forward to more.
Together with Lani of Tweenselmom and Joy of Joy Gurtiza, we aimed to plan a memorable and fun party for the mommy bloggers of Mommy Bloggers Philippines. It was an intimate party for 30 mommies. We wish it could have been bigger but the venue and time we had limited us a bit. Hopefully, next year we can do something grander.
Our venue sponsor, Spaces by Babyland had the perfect place for us to carry out our imagined party. Spaces is at the 2nd floor of the Babyland Store Facilities in Shaw, Mandaluyong City. It’s an intimate venue that can hold seminars, classes, activities and events such as our party.
We wanted a very cozy and relaxing atmosphere so we played french music and Christmas songs. Lani started off the party with a few words and an introduction.
I also got to say a few words and talk about the expected events for 2015.
To get the mommies acquainted with each other we played a speed dating type game where each mommy was paired with another mommy and asked not so typical questions. The room got pretty noisy and it was a fun game. The mommies came out of it knowing a little bit more about the other mommies.
Our venue was made beautiful by our caterers, The Posh Caterer, Shekinah Dishes and Kubiertos Catering. They came up with such lovely styling that we only had to do minimal decorations ourselves.
The Posh Caterer
The Posh Caterer had an impressive display and menu. They truly kept the theme of Winter Wonderland in mind when coming up with the styling.
I have worked with Shekinah Dishes a few times and I knew they wouldn’t let me down. They also came up with a fantastic display and added some color with these cute santa hats.
Kubiertos Catering provided fun snacks and desserts for the mommies as well.
Our dessert was provided by Love Desserts, a buffet restaurant located in Banawe, Quezon City. We have so many buffet restaurants sprouting up everywhere but they are the first to come up with the concept of a dessert buffet.
Our generous sponsors truly made our mommies’ day. They brought home many goodies for themselves and their families. Thank you to Fly Ace, Nailaholics, Teleserv, Trolli, Triumph, Zomato, and Nature Essentials.
Our photo booth was care of Yeah, Shoot!. The mommies took plenty of shots and had so much fun with it.
We also had raffle prizes for the mommies having items from The Cream Factory, Renuzit, Lazada, Glorietta and Abenson. The mommies were overjoyed to learn that we were raffling off an Acer Tablet and Sharp 32′ LED TV. Congratulations to the lucky mommies!
Winner of Acer Tablet– Jingke Kolca
Winner of Sharp 32′ LED TV– Pauline Joy Flores
After the raffle we went on to have our Exchange Gift. I was thrilled to receive these SM Kids Fashion GCs. Thank you!!!
It was another great adventure and with these 3 mommies it was a blast! The planning, chats and meetings were always filled with brilliant ideas, tremendous humor and genuine friendship. I’m looking forward to another year working with them!
Thank you to our committee who always know what to do and how to help without us asking. It can get pretty flustering but these mommies help us make the event a success that it is. Thank you Pier, Jho and Lally!
