Blessed with good clients

I've always thought i'm blessed with such wonderful and nice clients.  Everything is a lot easier because I have clients who are easy to talk to, respect me and trust what i do.  Here's another thank you note from mommy tin :)

"sis, GRABE super thank U tlga wala ako masabi. sabi ng mga bisita ko na mesmerize sila sa place pagpasok. kaya super thank you talaga. Galing mo sis. tuwang tuwa si husband pagkita. nagulat nga sya kasi ako lang lahat nag plan, pero sya lang nagbabayad. sis, next time po ulit."

everytime i get thank you notes like this, it makes my hear skip a beat :) thanks for all your trust!

Event ideas

An online friend of mine thought of suggesting that i write a book about birthday ideas, anything that i can find useful for parents throwing parties for their kiddos, like sharing tips on 7 traditions, crafts that even the not so artistic parents can do, or just practical ways to hold a party the more efficient way, or simply avoiding the Don'ts.  I was inspired with the thought so i started reviving this blog of mine and hopefully if i'd be able to compile that many tips in the near future, i'd be able to self-publish a handbook like "party planning for the dummies" type. haha.

all in God's time. :)

DIY of the week -- Pink lemonade stand

Well, i did'nt exactly did this myself but my reliable carpenter did it for me.  I had to make sure the exact pink color will be painted here.  And i asked my carpenter to leave the back portion open so after using it for a party, i can use it as a box. If you're having a garden party like the one i recently organized, this lemonade stand is a unique way to welcome your guests...with a fresh, cool lemonade. yummy!

The one with crafts for parties

I did a bear and horse themed party several weeks ago and i noticed that i had more DIYs here than my other parties that day.  I really enjoy doing these stuff and maybe you'd be interested to include some of these crafts for your event.

Paper poms
You can use these anywhere. Materials cost so cheap.  They're very easy to make and really nice in pictures. Below is a step-by-step instruction


I did'nt realize how nice these look even if it's just so simple to make.  Nothing fancy but really nice for baptism, tea party events, etc.

Here's the link that i saw and learned from


above are some of my works. :)

A very inspiring message

Nothing beats my stress and "pagod" but a warm thank you message from a client.  You see, I know we get paid to do what we do but I would like to think that our efforts and services are much, much more worth it when we see that our clients are very satisfied with how each event turns out.  And with this, I'm so happy to include here a thank you email from one of our clients.  It's so warm and inspiring, almost made me teary-eyed. ;)

Email of Ms. Yayo:
My papa [father] is hard to please.  Normally, after a party he says, "sana ganito, sana ganyan", and in times like this, it simply means, he is not impressed with the party. But last Saturday's party (and I remember, also on my wedding), I didn't hear the same comment.  Instead, he kept on saying the party was really nice, it's different, the host is really good, the food tastes really good, he enjoyed the food carts, and all other praises for the party. That my papa was impressed is an affirmation that last Saturday's event was a HUGE SUCCESS.
And for this, Jeisha, JP and myself will be forever grateful to you. 
It is not only about the fantastic and elegant decors that I am most grateful for... it was the LOVE that you put into it.  My husband knows that I am picky with suppliers and/or event organizers, and I don't easily trust people, but after our meeting at Starbucks, I told my husband, I already found the "one", as I have been talking to other event stylist/party planner but after every telephone conversation, my heart always says, "The search is not yet over." 
And why did I say, after our first meeting at Starbucks, that you were the one?  Simply because you listened to me despite me being non-comittal to get your services, you shared your ideas for the party without fear of me just copying it, and more importantly, you agreed to meet with me without getting any assurance  that I'll get your services (unlike one popular event stylist who was very accommodating at first but, much to my dismay, gave me a cold treatment when I told her that I wanted to meet with her first and listen to her ideas before making any confirmation).  Your action and response gave me the impression that I'll be working with a woman who's passionate about her job, not mainly because of the profit you'll derive from it, but primarily because you want to satisfy your client's quest for perfection and satisfaction.
And yes, jp, jeisha and myself are now included in your roster of (extremely) satisfied and (very) happy clients.  And not to forget all our guests who, to this day, still talk about our party in AWE.  To them, our party was simply amazing... and you were part of it.
Again, our gratitude to you, your staff and all the suppliers.  And pls. do extend our deepest gratitude and admiration to Flooch.  He was not just a perfect host, magician and ventriloquist, he seems to be a very beautiful person inside and out.  And to his wife, too.  I just can't forget when Flooch said that my daughter's eyes are SO BEAUTIFUL, hehehe. More than appreciating Jeisha, I think that was a simple gesture of making a connection with us. 
'Til our next party.

And here are some pictures of Jeisha's victorian-themed party.

I had this logo made by a british artist :)

 i had this centerpiece made from scratch, the wood, the hat which we embellished with laces and faux flowers.

Fully booked

Of course I cannot complain, not in a million years.  August 11 and 12 was one of the most challenging weekends of Partyboosters.  I would have been more prepared but the habagat situation (dont want to call it tragedy) took a toll on me and I was down with flu and a heavy body.  But praise God, everything went well.  Everything was in order and I can't help but feel super happy that all our clients were satisfied.  I want to cry after all the 8 (yes eight!) events were done.  I was so happy and i won't get tired of making parents happy, making them feel their money's worth and i'm just so blessed to have clients who are just as nice. :)

Thank you Lord. This gave me a fresh inspiration to always improve and give our best to our clients.

God bless partyboosters!

Doting lola

Whenever I organize parties, i love seeing and meeting doting lolas. and Tita Ellen was one of those. She's really sweet to her apo and when she contacted me for chanel's party (dont you just love the name?!), it's such a sweet privilege to be entrusted with something an occasion they will cherish for life.  She has really trusted us with their party and when she called me the day after the party just to thank me for the wonderful decorations, i felt again the send of fulfillment and God's favor on partyboosters. such a delight to hear thank you's and appreciations from our clients. and we will never get tired of doing our best for them.

thank you Lord for always giving me really nice clients. :)
