Wow. It's December 1st today and after two months, I can finally write about and share with you the photos of Pia's party in school. You see, I am now breathing normally. I'm savoring the calm days left before the Christmas madness begins. Actually, not days but few hours left. It will be mompreneurhood at its finest. Christmas orders, Pia's Christmas presentation and party, shopping, husband's holiday break, home decorating, and more. Whew.
OK. Back to Pia's party. She held it a day after her exact birthday. I thought of Sheriff Callie, icecream in a cone, and teddy bears as possible party themes weeks prior September 24th. Unfortunately, it was booted out by dreamy cupcakes when I envisioned what the kids will do and eat. So here are some photos and a little kwento.

This was easy! I searched the net and looked for free stuff and found Sweet Rose's Cupcake Party Blank Invitation. I printed it out on a regular bond paper, cut it and pasted on a slightly bigger blue cartolina. I rolled it and secured it with Parties and Patterns' Printable Napkin Rings. I bought it for $2. It's actually for table napkins but used it instead on the invites. If you want a copy, shoot me an email. So darn cute, I tell ya!
I liked that TS proactively prepared a cupcake art activity for that day. The kids colored a cupcake, put some sequins and glued it in a popsicle stick. Afterwards, I made their lives a bit more difficult (haha) when I asked them to build their own cupcakes. Not only it was super cute, it also exercised their tiny hands in holding the scissors. Hello, fine motor skillzzz!
FOOD & CUPCAKES
Uhm, it's not that amaaaaazing as last year's My Little Pony party but it's as unhealthy as it was. Oh wait, it's actually a complete meal. Allow me to justify. Haha. Bread for the GO, ham and cheese for the GROW, apples for the GLOW, corn chips and choco balls for the JUNK. Some kids liked it, some kids didn't. Good thing they made their own cupcakes! I baked my classic dark chocolate cuppies and smothere it with colorful buttercream frosting. Then decided to bring all the toppings that can make some sanctimommies palpitate. LOL. Well, it's a party! Killjoys gotta go, you know. They all enjoyed making it, including the teachers. 5 of Pia's classmates (the ones with the best designs) lent their cupcakes to her for the traditional candle-blowing ceremony. Yup, hers plus theirs equals 6. Did I really do the Math?
So proud of this one. This is MY ORIGINAL. As in, I didn't search for it and didn't copy anyone in the internet. I bought cupcake domes, put in large marshmallows, gummy worms and bears and some choco coated candies. And voila, a pseudo-cupcake giveaway! Toothache-worthy.
Pia received a lot of gifts from her classmates. There were books, puzzles, bag, stickers and toys! She obviously enjoyed the attention, the love and the presents! Her classmates had fun, too. Ate M (teacher's assistant) said that it was the kids' first school party for this year so it really excited them. Cpt R was also home for a well-deserved R&R so he was he best dad that he could ever be for his unica hija by taping the balloons in the chairs, taking lots of videos and lighting the candles (yes, that's his hand; mine's not that chubby noh hahahaha).
CHEERS TO SIX YEARS OF SWEETNESS, MY LITTLE CUPCAKE!
Nanay loves you to rainbow bits and sugary sprinkles. We're saving up for your 7th, babe. ♥♡♥
