So for her invite, I asked her Ninang Heili to do the invite from these free printables from Hostess with the Mostess. Heili came up with this final invite.
Then Miya’s Ninang Pam volunteered to do the tags for the loot bags. She came up with these.
I took the invite and the tags to Kodak to have them printed out on photo paper. The tags I cut out to its small square size each.
Heili also photoshopped the buntings from the free printables to create a "Happy Birthday Miya" banner which I printed out on ordinary colored printer. The pompom ice cream were also DIY. Miya's Ninang Rhoda helped me make the pompoms and then I added the orange board paper as cone. My mother helped me shop in Divisoria for the giveaways. Was very pleased with the loot bags we were able to score at P18 per piece! And because I was in Divisoria, I was able to not overspend within my budget and still able to buy a lot for the kids. I was very particular with the giveaways because I wanted to stick with the ice cream theme. I bought stickers, hair clips, pens and colors, clay and tools set for the girls. Most of these items have ice cream or are shaped as ice cream. But for the boys, it was hard to stick to the theme. So aside from the pens and colors, and clay and tools set, I bought them stickers with a sports theme and some Iron Man lego figurines.
Here are photos of the party!
|We were so near the table because the kids gathered near the cake pops. They wanted to take it even before singing the birthday song hehe.|
|Blow your cake and make a wish!|

|Busy sa pagkain ng balat ng chicken haha!|
|Look at how intent this kid is looking at the cake pop. Maybe she's thinking, "Is this real ice cream?"|
