| 11/04/06 - 2nd & 3rd party (4th part)
|we had 2 parties that saturday. actually, 3 sana kaya lang di na kayanin ng powers ko yung isa kaya i had to let it go. sayang, sa crowne plaza pa naman sana un. =(
1st party is the 2nd bday of Sam (ni Jacqui, a n@wie). small Elmo party lang sa house nila. she just got the invites, tarp banner and banderitas from me. we gave her the invites a week ago. while yung banderitas ay ginupit-gupit ko habang sumasakit ang tyan ko, hehe. hubby delivered the tarp and banderitas nung friday, 11/03.
and for our major party, 12nn at Ayala, Alabang.
background: Apple, also a blogger, blog hopped and left a note at this blog a month ago inquiring about my party services. nagandahan daw sya sa mga party decor ko kaya she became interested in my service. ang problem, she's in Davao and the party will be in Alabang, at her IL's residence. and she'll be in Manila just a week before the party. and a month before the party, she practically had nothing planned yet.
so we started the discussions through email, call and text. when we agreed with everything, she deposited 50% down on my account. that was a big amount, and i was so thankful that she trusted me that much, to think that we haven't even met. i just met her MIL when i made an occular visit to their place in Alabang. as she blogged it, she trusted me because of our names, hehe. not just because of "our" names, but also because of our hubby's names. his hubby's name is Ryan and our party shop's name is "Yan-Ple" =) get the connection? and oh, one of her daughter's name is also my real name. owel, such a cute coincidence.
and because of this trust that i was really careful never to break, even if i was suffering from so much pain. i didn't tell her about my condition, until we were all set during the party.
we left our house around 830am, our van FULL of balloons and party things. we arrived there before 10am and started to decorate the place. we were done just in time before guests came in by 12nn.
we've personalized most of the decors according to her party theme which was "angel".
we had the entrance arch:
the tarp and "flying" angel standee:
the angel baloon standee:
the personalized chandelier balloon:
the personalized table centerpiece (w/ angel figurine) and personalized piñata:
we also provided personalized name tags, souvenir stickers and halo. the angel costume of Sophie. angel cake, cupcakes and choco lollies. food carts and choco fountain. professional host/magician and me as party coordinator. i also provided a free bubble machine which the kids enjoyed so much.
hubby and my assistants were in-charged of the major things. while i helped in my own little way. i was so weak but tried hard not to show it. i didn't eat anything, just a Nestea bottle and water lasted me the whole event. i still coordinated the party flow, but with the help of my assistants.
the party was a blast! the kids and adults as well love my host. and there were a number of inquiries and referrals. as apple texted me after the party, "we had fun, tnx to u. =) daming nagalingan sa host and d kids and sophie rly enjoyed, dats wat rly matters to us. =) d decorations were vry nice also. Tnx again! =)".
and upon checking on her blog, she wrote this: "Sophie turned one last November 7 we celebrated last November 4 and it was a blast... The kids and Sophie had so much fun and I am very happy... Thanks to our coordinator ***** who single handedly did almost everything... Even though she was sick at that time so she really deserves more appreciation..."
i'm so thankful for this party because i have met nice people like apple. thanks for entrusting your cutie sophie's 1st bday to me. thanks to my people for doing a great job. and thanks to the Lord for helping me pulled it through, despite of my condition.
my host, suppliers and friends in that party were telling me na namumutla na daw ako. magpa-confine na daw ako because amoebiasis is no joke. to think na matindi pa yung dumale sa akin. =(
so we arrived home around 4pm. just had a little merienda, then headed back to the hospital. since tapos na ang commitment ko, CONFINE ME NOW! hehe. and sadly, i didn't get any better, kaya confine na nga ako!!! =(
