Cuatro para Agosto! A Mexican Birthday Fiesta..

Last month, August 18th, my sisters and I, celebrated both me and my dad’s birthday. This party was also for 2 of our current babies… the two things that are keeping us busy nowadays, hence the long overdue post haha! One is The Supper Club, an events cum catering business, and the other a family business called Vmobile.

We served up a simple Mexican themed fiesta for some of our relatives and closest friends. It took about a week before the event for us to DIY our way to most of the decorations (will be posting about that soon). And all that work was well worth all the effort!

Here are are a couple of the photos we want to share with you. By the way, thanks so much to one of our lovely friends Paulo Maneja for taking these lovely shots.

Our Mexican themed spread: Calamansi Crinkles, Leche Flan / Flan, Grilled Corn, Mexican spiced chicken, Picadillo, Nachos with Pico de Gallo, Guacamole, Sour Cream and Cheese sauce, Freshly made flour tortillas
Salted Caramel Cupcakes made by very generous cousins, Ica & Kat! Love you both 😀
Cute striped straws in 3 colors! Blue, Red & Green!
Of course! There was a piñata! :p

Some photos of our quirky friends! Thank you for making this event possible! 😀

To my fellow bees, tis the beginning of many many more parties we’ll be throwing! Salud!

Pins-pirations

Since my sister’s and I, the entire family’s really into DIY stuffs especially those shabby-chic-pinteresty types. We’ve been on a constant look out for some inspiration…. and when we were out on one of our trips to the north one day we saw this little store (heima) and  boy what inspiration did we find!

It was like being in a coma and waking-up in pinterest heaven!

The place just lives and breathes design sponge!

They even had these– view master. Wooow! We use to own one of these when we were little talk about major nostalgia so just imagine our excitement. We were totally fighting over who gets to play with it first…childish i know..NOT 🙂

Everything was just so cute and pretty, we wanted everything in that store but the stuff were a little pricey. Good thing the owner allowed us to take all the pictures that we wanted! Now we get to share the inspiration with you, yehey! enjoy!
