Gone are the stressful preparations of a noisy, too colorful, too much activities, handful of performers, magicians, type of 1st birthday party. I’ve done that before and probably won’t do it again. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it, guests enjoyed it, but the celebrant, I can say, not too much.
So for A’s 1st birthday, I decided to have a simple lunch buffet at HEAT in Edsa Shangri-La Hotel. I din’t have to worry about the food since there’s a wide variety and guests could just take their pick from the buffet. The best part? no food getting cold! No matter how late a guest would arrive, he would still be able to eat fresh, hot food. As you all know, food is something that’s always remembered in a party.
Din’t have to worry about the rent of the place.
No fuss in decorating an entire plain boxy area.
No parking problem.
All I needed was a cake to blow, a gift table, and a little table decoration to make it a bit special.
Here are some personal touches I made. Not extravagant. Just right.
Have you also veered away from the extravagant 1st birthday parties? Please do share your ideas 🙂
