Adriele’s 1st birthday

After months of planning and preparations, the day has finally come.

It is a special day not only for me and Axle but as well as to our whole family. Adriele is turning one, what else can be more important than that?


We were pretty sure our family and friends kinda expect that Adriele’s first birthday will be Minnie Mouse themed party. Haha so we thought of another theme.

Adriele loves colorful balloons so we came up with Hot Air Balloon theme.

The Venue

We booked the function hall of Rosewood Pointe Residences, Acacia Estates, Taguig. Reasons why we chose it:

  1. It’s near our place. Less travel time for Adriele.
  2. Very homey ambiance.
  3. Awesome surroundings, especially the sight of its blue pool.

For the food, we had Villa Salud Catering. We first had them at my nephew’s first birthday party and I must say they really have the most yummy roast beef!

What’s also amazing is that they also organize parties. They have wide array of add-ons that you can include on your party details. Here’s what they did to the venue…

And this is the Villa Salud magic!

They’re the ones who did the venue set-up. Truth be told, I was close to crying when I saw this. The plans, all the notes I gave them, were accomplished!

The Cake. 

Our good friend Jana, the owner of Iñigo’s by Fat Chef Manila, was the one who baked our baby’s cake.

A week before the party, I sent her several pegs from Pinterest. And this is what I really liked. I can’t believe she was able to pull it off! And not only that… The cake is sooooo delicious! Heavenly! Her best-seller!


We had a clown, from Villa Salud, who had contributed much to the success of the program. Axle and I, together with his sister Beatrix, prepared a program but the clown had made it much easier and livelier for us. Hooray!

As for the photobooth, it was a gift from my husband’s high school barkada. Smiles to Go Photobooth made our celebration more special because of photos that our guests could keep.

I am very thankful because our parents, relatives and friends supported and helped us all the way. This wouldn’t be possible without them.

Adriele is just so happy with the colorful venue, people and gifts of course!

The party is over but I’m sure our family, especially Adriele, will forever treasure this memorable event.

Group huuuuug!
