Mia & Mike's Alphabet Birthday Party


I love my kids and I looove parties. On top of my office work and the house chores, yes I go commit myself with this ‘mini’ project some months ago. Yes, I prefer to plan ahead so not to get myself stress up the very last minute details ( but there still *was* when sumppljustdunudnerstdtorsvp ya know?!) Anyhow, organizing double M party was one hell of fun! The birthday girl was super happy the day finally came!

And since I love to make things I try to DIY as much as my mommy time permits.

Over couple of months, I’ve been exchanging ideas and party planning alot with Nadia. Good thing both of us share the same interest (+home decor + arts & crafts and the list goes onnnnn) and search whats best for our kids . She’s so resourceful. Thanks babe!

The alphabet theme came up because I feel since this year Mia started schooling, so obviously the first thing she learned in school is A B C 🙂 . Both my kids share the same birth month, again, it has to be a double celebration and alphabet theme fits best as its a neutral theme init?! Plus I need something as easy as abc to make and do too heh.

First and foremost, the birthday cake turns out just as I imagine it to be. Many thanks to Zurina’s cake. She’s genius! and easy to communicate with and prompt my emails and text messages fast. Totally recommendable.

I choose the colors pastel green,orange and pink as their party color theme. The color was based from the fabric that I sew for kid’s party favor bags. I was happy to get hold of the fabric when we were in Gold Coast.  Here’s a few things I make

-the scallop garland (yeah still a sucker!) and party garland ( get it here!)
-the pompoms (I’ve been meaning to find excuses to make this, what better way to use it during my kids party!) {tutorial here}
-the party favor bag ( brown for girls and blue for boys= filled with M&M’s chocolates, alpha crayon, pop up game, marshmallow; babies goody consists of coco crunch)
-the party hat {ideas here}
-the alphabet cups {thank you violet! – get it here }
-and  the alphabet crayons {tutorial ideas here and here}

Ted was awesome for helping out with the food labels, stickers and photo-booth. Most of our photo-booth prop’s are from Mia’s last year party.

This time around we have games. It was more for Mia’s friend rather than her baby brother, obviously. We had bowling, kids enjoyed that! and we have pin the pinwheels, where they are blind folded & had to walk up to pin at the right spot. Naturally all kids received a  gift token for each game. Every kids was such a sport!

And so, the must anticipated birthday party finally ended with on a happy note over the weekends. Above all, two major thing I must highlight here – I’m glad Mia and Mike was in their pink of health and secondly weather was sun shiny. Syukur! Because truthfully health and weather is beyond our control. So that is something to be grateful.

Dear friends and family who came, we couldn’t express how happy with your present on the day. Bless you soul! 🙂 Hope you had a great time at the party as much as I had fun planning it.

On another note, time flies super fast. Feels just like yesterday Mia w her baby talk and me heavily pregnant with Mike, and now my girl all grown up, being cheeky + silly is her best trait, sisterly love, independent and special with her own way. Mike on the other hand, is super active, adore his big sis and utterly cute little men whom I wanna snuggly & tickle every freaking seconds I get.
