ang galing galing!
here are more details of tsug's baptismal.. we only had a budget of 25k for EVERYTHING.. and i do mean everything.. i think lumagpas kami ng mga 2k siguro dahil nga sa emergency food situation.. anyhoo.
eto pala get up ni tsugtsug:
all bought from Sta.Lu department store. St. Patrick's ata yung shirt. very cheap, think only 400bucks for the terno.
venue.. casa arenas. bwahahah. our reliable backyard. maulan but my dad put up some umbrellas and the guests were fine. also put up 2 new ceiling fans kasi mainit dati nung despedida ni ate ging. naglagay din si daddy ng aluminum something sa roof para daw mag absorb ng heat. sa next pic manonotice nyo yun..
food was from our suki, the very reliable CCME (homemadefoodstuff.com). We had chicken pastel, roast beef, barbecued spareribs, adobong prawns and crabs, steamed lapu lapu, young corn/quail eggs/green peas with shrimps. Ang dami diba? yeah, for 50 people. ehehehe. I opted for a full catering service from them, para less hassle, dagdag ng 100bucks/head. mga 14k lahat lahat ang food, pero dami namang ulam, so okey lng. (sensya na sa nagbabasa pero hindi nakatikim ehehehe)
eto likod ng casa. check out the silver ceiling ehehe.
also got charlie's pritson.. lechon in a pita.. 4650 bucks sya, pero sabi ni pangs maliit lng daw yung lechon. parang lechon de leche. mga 80 pcs lang daw din yung pita. this i knew but i didn't realize the pita would be small.. parang 2 inches lang pero masarap. we reckoned if we got the the usual Elar's 5k lechon, hindi kami nagkafood drought. well, at least natikman namin and masarap nga. plus they came with 2 helpers, nice uniforms and all. konti nga lang tlga yung lechon.
pritson guys with soon to be wed A & R.
syempre dapat meh cake si gavin. got this from jane of sweetbite. jane was very easy to talk to, very jolly. she made the cake a fondant one without extra charge (siguro nagpapractice ka noh jane! ehehe) tapus 50 choco cupcakes. also ordered desserts from her, 50 pcs of eclair and food for the gods. i was only able to taste the cupcakes and it was good. moist and not too sweet. even my mom liked it which is a very good sign cause she doesn't like sweets. dad said he tasted the eclair and it was good. i can only assume the food for the gods was good cause they vanished before the party ended.
buti na lang napicturan ni hubby. si daddy ang in charge of photos.. he wouldn't care less about the 'details'.
wasn't planning on getting balloons pero parang gusto ko medyo festive naman ang mood. gusto ko sana dito lang maghanap ng balloons sa meh COGEO but didn't have the time to look around. (last week nakakita ako, meron sa gate 2 ehehe, now i know). got jacque from n@w/w@w of partyboosters . madali din kausap si jacque and she went to our house to setup the balloons pa. kahiya nga kasi almost non-existent ang budget ko dito eh ehehe. got 100 balloons from her tapus nagdagdag sya ng mga centerpiece. thanks jacque! and good luck sa iyong new biz.
the only problem with balloons was disposing them! ang dami eh! was able to give a couple sa batang dumaan sa bahay namin. yung iba nilagay ni daddy sa meh bakod namin tapus parang magic, nawala lahat. ohdiba.
kumuha rin pala ako ng mamang sorbetero.. yung ex-helper namin dati na si mae, pinaabangan ko ng naglalako.. meh nakita syang naglalako ng ice cream stick/ice buko, yun ang tinanungan nya. got 1500 for 6 gallons. wasn't too happy kasi 2 lang flavors, cheese and cookies & cream. tapus medyo pasaway pa si mamang sorbetero. sabi ko 12 pumunta, 9am andun na. ang konti pa ng cones na dala, di daw kasama sa usapan. ehehe patawa. oh well. daming natira, hanggang ngayon kinakain ko parin hahaha.
yung invites, got really cheapo and just printed them out as a photo. yung souvenir naman and tarpaulin ni tsug we got it printed sa fans digital sa hidalgo, quiapo. my dad always goes there for you-know-what naman kaya hindi out of the way ehehe. mura lang, 32bucks isang magnetic card and tarpaulin was just 300bucks. mura din magpaprint ng photos dun, just 6bucks each for a 4R size. gusto ko yung kinalabasan. ako naglayout, got scrapbook elements from shabbyprincess.com.
tarp layout.. laki ng mukha ni tsugtsug ehehe
4x4 pinagawa ko.. ganda ng pagkagawa, rounded yung corners.
ayun. kapagod pero masaya. next stop.. tsugtsug's 1st birthday! yahoooooo can't wait!!
