LIFE is a DANCE if you take the STEPS. This is my DANCE. The story of my LIFE.

Dancing is moving to the music without stepping on anyone's toes, pretty much the same as life.

When Creeper and Jollibee Met for the First Time (7th Birthday Party)

on August 19, 2016

Aidan is a Big Fan of Minecraft. He said, when he grows up, he wants to be an Engineer and build houses; that’s why he really loves Minecraft. Just like other kids, it is also his wish to have a Jollibee party – so why not combine Jollibee and Minecraft?

Our first plan was to look for a venue that can accommodate upto 100 guests and then rent a  Jollibee mascot. But there are restrictions of course. Plus, we still have to buy food from them.

A month before the Big Day, we finally agreed to celebrate his Birthday in Jollibee.

I first called Jollibee Magallanes branch but the lady I spoke with seems to be clueless with her work and cannot answer me straight with my queries.

Hubby, mentioned that there’s a Jollibee branch near our place that he think is a perfect venue for parties- closer to LRT Libertad Station for guests that are commuting especially if they are coming from North, Guests coming from South and has enough Parking for those who will bring their cars. Also, during weekends, nearby offices and schools are closed, so wala masyado tao.

We opted to go to the Branch to reserve the party kahit na pwede naman online. Of course, I want to check the place first. Indeed, it was the best venue. The party designs that they already have are cute and the walls are green. Perfect for a Minecraft party! Plus, If we exceed 70 guests, we can occupy the seats outside and since hindi naman matao on weekends, in case we reach 100 guests, they can close the entire 2nd floor for us. =)

I ask for the Restrictions para at least we are aware and we can prepare necessary designs lang. I specifically requested to have all the balloons green. Normally, it’s assorted lang. We also asked if we can place a Candy Buffet (but should be consumed outside the venue, which is for me acceptable naman), we will provide our own loot bags, did not purchase their cake too because my son wants Minecraft cupcakes.

We have 80 guests but the crew booked us for 60 guests first and was allowed to just have additional orders at the day of the event. They want to make sure na walang sobra. =)

We arrived 30 minutes before the scheduled party. Of course, dahil madami akong inarte, nag set up pa ako. Good thing there were 5 crew members who helped us during the event. So, lahat ng inutos ko nagawa naman nila and I loved it!

They’re busy preparing the table for prizes. 

The Birthday Celebrant is keeping himself busy by Playing Minecraft while we prepare for his party.

Guests started to arrive at 3pm. At 3:30 pm, the party started. Yes, hindi siya sakto kasi we waited for the other guests to arrive.

I was planning to make a balloon centerpiece but i saw a post online that in Jollibee, they use the Party Hats as centerpieces. I find it cute!

Simple but cute =)

See the Walls? They’re GREEN. =)

 

The Jollibee crew members were the one who set up the table for the Prizes. The package already includes 25 pieces of Assorted Prizes. I just added Bubble Swords, Pens, Whistles and Cute Elephant Sharpeners that I got from the mall. For the adults, I bought Wafers from Duty Free.

 

We officially started the party with a prayer to thank God for this Special Day to happen. The Opening Prayer was led by my husband’s Cousin, RB.

Seryoso siya sa pagdadasal. Good Boy Coco! 

One of the crew members asked us If we want Jollibee to be in the whole event. We just need to add 700. Of course we ok’d. It was my first time to attend a Jollibee party that Jollibee will be there for the whole duration of the party, plus, it was my son’s birthday party! Kudos to whoever the man inside Jollibee Mascot. Hindi din biro ang nasa loob ka ng Mascot Costume for 2 hours. Plus the fact na dudumugin ka pa ng mga bata hehehe

Before the games started, there was a quick interview with the Celebrant and his Parents. =)

Interview with the Parents First

Dada was asked where we gor Aidan’s name. =) That question was for me but I want Dada to answer it. hehe

Then, the host asked me why we chose green as the motif. Hindi pa ba obvious kung bakit? hehehe

IMG_AIDAN (179)

I want to be an Engineer. =) 

And let the games begin…

The first game was the Pass the Balloon. The person that’s holding the balloon once the music stops, will be the winner.

They’re all afraid of the balloon because they don’t want to stand in front. =)

 

And the winners are…

 

Then, they introduced the Special Guest for that day.

The Bee is approaching… 

IMG_AIDAN (237)

And he’s looking for something… or someone? 

IMG_AIDAN (239)

I think he already found what he’s looking for… 

IMG_AIDAN (241)

He found the Birthday Boy!

Jollibee giving the Birthday Boy a BIG HUG! 

And the winners will a chance to have a dance showdown with non other than Jollibee. =)

 

 

The 2nd game was the “Longest Happy Birthday

 

I don’t know ano meron sa 3rd game actually. hehe Buti game naman ang adult guests.

 

The guests are already hungry for sure…

Food is ready. =) Time to eat…

We had Chicken and Spaghetti, Burger Yum, Twirl and Coke Float for the Adults and Big Kids. Chicken and Spaghetti, Twirl and Sprite (sorry they don’t have juice and they didn’t allow us to bring juice for the kids)  for the Little Kids. It’s an afternoon party so we thought of not ordering rice.

After the meal, the kids lined up for another game.

The boys and girls will compete on this game. The Mom with the most number of straw in the hair wins the game.

The Little Boys. 

 

Hindi din papatalo ang Little Girls…

 

The Little Boys won. =)

Time for a quick break… Photo ops with the Family and Friends.

 

Of course, Photo Ops with Jollibee too. =)

 

The most awaited moment has come. The Birthday boy will finally blow his Birthday Candle. We ordered cupcakes from my Mother in Law’s friend. Aidan wants cupcakes instead of a Birthday Cake, and he personally chose the design. =)

Time for another Photo Ops. =)

 

Syempre, hindi mawawala ang Dance Number ni Jollibee and his Crew. =)

Time to give the Loot bags to the kids =)

Thank you for creeping! 

And before we finally end the party, there’s a Special Message from the parents and of course, the Birthday Boy!

IMG_AIDAN_ALBUM (101)

We, as Aidan’s parents were very grateful for all the Family, Friends and Aidan’s Godfathers and Godmothers who were there. We don’t celebrate Aidan’s Birthday this much every year so I was really overwhelmed with the love you showed to Aidan on his Special Day. A big Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your presence is the most precious gift a child could ever receive.

Just like what Aidan said during the party, “Thank you everyone for coming.”
