Hi there friendly neighborhood critters, este, creatures! I want to share with you how we celebrated Raviv’s birthday at school last Thursday. All in all I think prep was just two days. Talaga! Like I said, last week was super busy:
- Monday – Raviv’s field trip + Brain Train Christmas Party
- Tuesday – habol ng work sa office + review ng Rejoinder ng kaso namin; then in the afternoon ginawa ‘yung invitation ni Raviv. I was so lucky because our student assistant Jonathan Austria (who happens to be a amateur great layout artist) dropped by, so hinugot ko siya to create my concept of Raviv’s Spider-man-themed invitation. It’s simple yet many complimented it. Here it is:
…which I put in a brown paper and sealed with a Spider-man sticker.
- Wednesday – went to DOJ to file our Rejoinder sa case namin, and then when I got home at about 4 p.m. that’s when I started preparing for Raviv’s birthday celebration, which was on the following day at 9:40 a.m.!
Grabe no?!? Bad trip talaga ‘yung kasong ‘yun! Nakakaubos ng time. I want to rant about it more but I want to stay positive. After all, we are talking about my son’s birthday celebration. Plus, I’ve already surrendered this case to the Big Guy up who knows everything.
- Anyway, here are some photos of Raviv’s simple Spider-man themed birthday celebration at school:
Why the balloon? Nako, nagkamali ng balloon na inilagay ‘yung saleslady! I ordered 30 Spider-man mylar balloons like these:
and four of these small balloons. Binaligtad! I discovered late that she put only four of the Spider-man-shaped mylar balloons and 30 of the round ones. Hay naku!!!
By the way, these are the contents of the lootbag:
Nako, the cakes were rushed! Since my sched was so hectic I totally forgot the cakes! As in I told the cakemakers only a few days before! Buti na lang they were so nice to singit my request!
The mini-cupcakes were from Bites, whose owner is my blogger friend Maggie Agustin.
And this amazing Spider-man cake was from another friend, Iris de Ramos of Rainbow Confections:
What I love about Bites and Rainbow Confections is that aside from the cakes looking pretty, they are yummy too! These days kasi there are lots of cakemakers who just focus on the aesthetics, kebs na kung lasang papel ang cake. But not Bites and Rainbow Confections.
