Zoe's 2nd Birthday Party!

Caution: Loaded with pictures!!!

Everything was set for Zoe's 2nd birthday party. We initially invited only a few close family and friends but then our guest list ballooned up to more than 60 people on the day before. No regrets because it turned out to be so much fun!

First, the FOOD! We asked the help of my SIL to cook kare-kare and kalderata while our Ate Nilda prepared molo soup, spaghetti, hotdog on stick and fruit medley. My Ninang pitched in and made some leche flan while I made peach & mango ref cake and some canapes (with egg salad) which was a HIT (thanks Anne for the tip!). Our birthday cake was from Red Ribbon (best buy!) while the rest of the food (pancit bam-i, fresh lumpia, chicken lollipops, herb-crusted fish fillet) were ordered from ever dependable Conti's.

Pictures here:









We had some goody bags and party hats for the guests too.



The party started at 12 noon with a short prayer and a cheerful happy birthday song for Zoe:


Then it was chowtime right away!



After lunch, my Ninang helped with some impromptu children's games which the kids really enjoyed...




...and which Zoe enjoyed watching too!

Some of Zoe's loots: Dora doll, Dora water bottle, Dora slippers and many more!

Thank you to all friends and family who made this birthday party an event to remember!
