After a long, tiring, but one of the happiest days of our lives, a friend’s mom approached us…”you must love your daughter so much that you gave her such a wonderful party…”
Yes, we do ❤️
Addie had always wanted a birthday tea party. So our theme for her 7th birthday was Vintage Mad Hatter Tea Party.
Shaz of Shaz Events Styling executed the theme perfectly. Have you experienced looking at Pinterest then getting disappointed kasi di naman nasunod? Not Shaz! She made everything look amazing… (and at a very affordable rate promise 😜)
Espacio Events Place was the perfect venue for Addie’s party. Simple, yet elegant… especially the ceiling details. Ang ganda ng architectural design! The glass walls gave the guests a great view of the garden. Si Addie feel na feel ang kanyang private room. Gusto na ata dun tumira. They have available parking spaces, and a parking attendant to assist the guests. And ang pinakaimportante… ang lakas ng aircon 😂

Aki celebrated his 1st birthday party just last February so limited ang budget ni Mommy and Daddy. 😂 So, our guests were limited to family members, godparents, Addie’s classmates and friends. It is Addie’s party after all. And, natututo akong mag-DIY.
I designed Addie’s invitations using Canva and Photoshop (dahil feeling graphic artist ako) and tied vintage keys for more arte. 😛
Bow ties and DIY headbands
Addie’s souvenirs were customized book-type boxes, which I designed and ordered from Blaskie Boxes and Crafts.
Contents: DIY bracelet, necklace and keychain, assorted charms, compass, etc.
May pa-poem instructions para ma-gets ng kids kung para saan ang laman 😂
Shaz incorporated the design of the souvenirs by setting up a little library at the stage.
Our caterer, Jack and Jenn Catering, provided separate tables for french fries and squid balls para mag mukhang meron kaming “food carts”. 😆 We placed red frames with Alice in Wonderland characters and colored paper cups.
Si Queen of Hearts fierce… may hawak na fishballs 😂

Look how everything looked “messy yet pretty” from the photo wall to the centerpieces. Shaz made the Vintage Mad Hatter Tea Party theme happen. Nung nakita ni Papa O yung setup, tinanong ako agad magkano nagastos 😛 Shaz will ask for your budget and requirements, and she will honestly tell you if kaya or hindi. In our case, it was really affordable. Ginanahan lang talaga siya ng bongga. 😆

My friends who showed their all out support. Mahal nila ako!! Ay si Addie pala 😆

Para ma-feel ng kids na it was a “tea party”, we had special tables for them with hanging cups and vines. (Dahil pa-unique si Shaz, ayaw nya ng balloons haha! 😂)
Doily placemats, canisters with Belgian Waffle Sticks and Dark Choco Chip Cookies (stik-o and fibisco 😂), ghost chairs from Jack & Jenn.
Sorry kung ang haba nito but I am just so happy na everything fell into place.

My sister and Camille also surprised me with a cake and bouquet kasi birthday ko a day before Addie’s. Mahal din nila ako 😘
Mabuhay ang bagong kasal moment… Aki is shookt!
Mommy Fleur, Michelle and Provinciated (not in the photo, ang cardo ng buhay nya) 🙂
I bought Addie’s Alice Costume online. Kaso maganda lang pala siya sa mga blonde hair and blue eyes. 😂 Pero Addie likes the costume talaga. Sabi niya, “it’s really cute! I want to look like a little French maid.” French talaga?! Buti nalang Hannah of H & Tots Creations was there to the rescue. She glammed up Addie’s dress with metallic tulle, sequinned heart and petticoat, and made Tweedle Dum beanie for Aki.
Addie as Alice, Aki as Tweedle Dum, me as the Queen of Hearts, and Papa O… as himself. 😆
Calvin and Tectonix never fail. Kung marunong lang kami ni Provinciated and Sophisticated gumawa ng balloon characters, labanan namin kayo… joke!)
And of course, di ko kayang kumuha ng ganyan ka gandang photos! Thanks again Photography Lianne for always capturing our best moments… and angles para di makita ang fats. 😆
Adriana was the happiest girl last Sunday and seeing how happy she was made us the happiest parents in the world.
Addie, you have already outgrown my lap, but you will never outgrow my heart. If I had to choose between loving you and breathing, I would use my last breath to tell you… to study 😂
We love you so much, Addie.❤️
