My daughter turned 3 last Friday. For this year, we didn't have the same big parties we prepared for her when she turned 1 & 2 years old. Gotta be prudent about the money since I'm giving birth in November. We prepared though a small school party for her in the morning and playtime in Timezone with her playmates in the afternoon.
We started the day with surprising her with a small birthday cake and gifts:
She was extra happy when we told her that it was her daddy who will bring her to school that day. While the two were in school we finished packing up the food:
Since her school is a bit strict on parties (simple ones only; no balloons nor games are allowed), I asked Clarissa of Frupcakes to prepare cupcake decorating kits as an activity for the kids before eating time. She provided the cupcakes and the icing bags along with fondant cutouts and sprinkles. I bought additional sprinkles, chocolate toppers and containers from Chocolate Lovers in Cubao.
Overall, albeit simple, the kids especially the birthday girl enjoyed the party.
