Ordering the cakes for their birthday

Time flies really fast.  My niece who was born October last year will now celebrate her first birthday next month.  It is like yesterday when her mother gave birth to her and now she turns one (1).  Just like what she did to her two sons, the sister wants the first birthday of her baby girl a memorable one. She is planning to have a huge celebration (not that huge though) because it will be a double celebration for her baby girl and her husband have the same birthday.  There will be two cakes on the table to share and expecting more visitors to come.

The motif of the niece is hello kitty and the father is the clash of clans character.  I am ordering cakes from a friend.  I also told her of the cakes design and the sizes.  I am glad I have a friend who is into this business because I get discounts from the cakes I ordered.  I haven’t tasted the cakes she made so I am curious about how good she is.  She is still looking for the designs and will message me once the design is made for our approval.  The birthday celebration will be great and memorable I must say.  The list of the foods to prepare is on a process.  Hopefully, the sister finished the plans two weeks before the event.  I can sense a tiring and busy day is coming.  Good luck to me and to us!

Preparing for the fiesta celebration

In two weeks, our village will celebrate fiesta celebration.  And we usually have a feast to share with our invited guests, relatives, friends, neighbors and unexpected visitors.  We have been doing this for years and I am doing the preparation for years too.  The only difference is that I do not have my sister with me to help me with all the preparation.  I must say it is tiring especially on the day of the celebration because I do the cooking, cleaning the kitchen area, washing the dishes and a lot more.  Hopefully, I will get a help from my two nieces who are not 12 and 14 years old.  I really hope so.

Anyways, went to the department store last Monday to buy some things needed in the kitchen.  I bought new table cloth, new towels, and rugs.  I opted not to buy new curtain this time because of the limited budget.  I will buy new curtain next time.  I have several on my list to buy, just that I have limited resources.  I must wait for the sponsor so I can proceed to buy the needed for the fiesta.  I have also listed the menu to prepare for the celebration, the desserts, and fruits to put on the table.  I have less than two weeks to finish it, I do hope I have the power to finish it all before our fiesta celebration on September 9, 2017.

Pink motif for a friend’s wedding

July 28, 2017, I got a call from a friend inviting me to her wedding.  Her wedding is on July 30, 2017.  The invitation is very abrupt and I thought of not coming to her wedding.  But thinking that she took the time to call me and told me to come is something that I should not turn down.  She told me to wear pink attire because her motif is pink.  Good thing I have the pink dress which I bought during the baptismal of my niece last December 25, 2016.  I do not have to worry about what to wear because I already have the pink dress.  Because if I do not have the pink dress, I might not come because of the abrupt decision and I do not have time to go to the mall.

The pink wedding is nice and very feminine.  Makes me think that if I were to get married, I might consider pink as a motif.  Hopefully soon.haha!  I must find my knight and shining armor first to make that dream come true.  Anyways, I am thankful to my friend for inviting me to witness one of the important events of her life.  I wish her happiness, successful married life and lots of kids to raise.  May God bless her marriage life.  One thing that makes the wedding unusual is that the one throwing the bouquet of flowers is her husband and he gathered the invited single gentlemen to catch the bouquet of flowers.  It is cute though and it is funny that the gentlemen are all game to catch it.

Denim theme on her first birthday

My sister is the kids of person that plan everything ahead of time to avoid panicking and stress.  As much as possible, she wants to get things ready and organized two weeks before the event.  Which is good because when you are stress and panicking because you were running out of time, you cannot think straight for you are confused about what should be done first.  The same thing she did on her wedding day.  She is less stress because all is set three weeks before the wedding day.  We relaxing and just waiting for the sister’s big day, her wedding.  She acts as the wedding planner during her wedding day.  She likes the outcome of her wedding.  Less stress and very nice flow of the event.

After that experience, the sister is also the event coordinator of her two sons.  At the moment, she is planning for the first birthday celebration of her little princess this October.  She has thought of the theme and motif already.  The sister decided to have a denim motif for her little princess’s first birthday.  I am pretty sure that this would be a very nice event.  Simple and memorable for the family.  Oops, I guess I have to look for a denim dress that I will wear on the niece first birthday.  Let’s go denim party.
