Minnie Mouse 1st Birthday Party {Kayla}

Kayla’s first birthday themed was Minnie Mouse. This party would not be completed without the help of my talented family. Everything was practically hands made at this party, so it took months for me to prepare it. Since Minnie Mouse was the focus of this party, our colors scheme were pink, black and white with the polka dot pattern.

All of our table decorations were pretty much DIYs. I created my own DIY Minnie Mouse logo for our cupcakes stand. I also created Minnie Mouse water labels as well as cupcakes toppers. My nephew, Joco, designed this beautiful banner and my sister, Ate Fe, sent it from the Philippines. I bought polka dot Continue reading →

Frozen Winter Wonderland birthday party {Klaudea}

My family from Ohio came to celebrate New Years with us and we also celebrated my niece, Klaudea aka Nina 13th birthday. She is now officially a teenager. We celebrated it with Frozen {Olaf} themed since her birthday is January 2nd and she loves the movie Frozen. She is definitely not a little girl anymore and no matter how much Jheng (her Mom) and Roger (her dad) wants to hold back, she is not going to be little forever.

We actually threw her a chick Frozen winter wonderland party inspired by the Disney movie on New Year’s Eve and New Years Day since I thought they were Continue reading →

Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

Are you ready to show your tacky ugly sweater?   Since it is Christmas, then “Tis the season to rock ugly sweaters!” We  decided to throw our very first Ugly Christmas Sweater Party last night!

Happy Holidays in Heaven

Celebrating holidays are always a struggle for me.   This will be my 5th Christmas and New Year without my husband.   I am so consumed with all the things going on with life and the emptiness I’m feeling inside, so I just want to be happy again.  As much as I try to stay positive, life comes back and knocks me down again.  I will try to be positive again and try not to focus on negativity and all the bad stuff that happens.  It is taking me years of grieving, healing and fighting whatever life brings me, but I think I want to be happy again.  I’m not sure what kind of happiness I’m looking for, but Continue reading →
