EVERYBODY’S NO. 1 VACATION SPOT
With the Holy Week fast approaching, my thoughts once again go back to that most wonderful vacation place in the world…
Now, this may be a contentious claim and might seem totally uninformed, but please hear me out for one second.
- Hong Kong is a shopping mecca for almost any product you want
- It can be pleasantly chilly (last month January experienced the country’s coldest temperature at 3 degrees!)
- It is just an hour-plus airplane ride away (shorter than most commutes in Metro Manila even!)
- Hong Kong Disneyland.
Okay, so that last bullet point is actually the real reason for this claim of mine. I mean, I can’t imagine a world without Walt Disney and his creations. Can you? I once gave it a serious try, and it just left me extremely depressed. No Mickey Mouse? No Elsa, or Sofia the First?
So, where are you guys headed for vacation this March?
MY (SO FAR) BEST VERSION OF A MICKEY MOUSE PARTY
Speaking of Walt and Mickey, I wanted to show you Party Magic’s latest stab at re-creating the masterpiece that is Mickey Mouse. I had been meaning to post these photos for some time now, but my schedule has been cruel and I’ve been handcuffed to all sorts of work.
Here is Andres’ wonderful Vintage Mickey party!
Many of my readers are no doubt aware of my endless fascination (and obsession!) with everything Mickey and Disney. For those who aren’t, here’s a quick rundown of some of my interesting blog posts related to the great Walt:
Andres’ party though, was a real mountain to execute, mostly because of the venue – The Silk Pavillon at Blue Leaf McKinley. For those who are researching for good venues for your parties, try checking out my other blog post, Top 10 Kiddie Party Venues in Metro Manila.
This venue has it all – tasteful interior, and of course, an extremely high ceiling!
I chose to do a scattering of swags, lanterns, gold stars, and some honeycomb lanterns. All of this combined provided that sort of vintage-y, “red carpet” glam look.
Oh and of course, let’s not forget my favorite vintage Mickey movie posters!
The stage is an awesome sight to behold.
It’s those marquee lights that run along Mickey’s silhouette that really gave the whole scene that vintage glow. Trust me; being there at the party in person was a real treat.
Speaking of, once again, a loud applause goes to Den Llanos Dee for her superb photography of this party! Check out her company, Delightful Little Darlings, right here.
I personally love Den’s shots on the birthday cake, made by my favorite baker, Tazzy Cakes!
So dramatic, don’t you think!
The party was truly complete. My client, Apple, even availed of our vintage customized game booths!
And, not to mention, customized food carts!

Guests who were invited to this celebration were greeted by a tastefully made invitation:
For those of you who are wondering, this design was made by my super-secret weapon, which, since you already made it this far along in my blog post, I will generously share with you:
of the Playground PH
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I will say this:
Sygryd has great taste in design, is a super efficient worker, and is reasonably priced. If you are shopping around for an invitation designer, I would be really surprised if you did not consider Syg.
Which reminds me, no detail was spared from Syg’s laser-eyes, as she even designed the placemats!
Now, moving on.
Here is the sight that first greets the guests to Andres’ party:
Complete with vintage props,
And last but not least: the delectable dessert area!
Andres, you are one truly special kid for having parents that love you so much they threw this awesome Mickey party for you!
With all my love,
