Zay at 7

Months before my girl's big day, I had big plans. We wanted to throw a fun pool party for our little girl. I listed down great ideas for a pretty candy and dessert buffet, some awesome party giveaways, a delicious cupcake tower and lots and lots of water fun.

Her birthday this year fell on a Saturday so we thought it fits perfectly in everyone's schedule. So we thought. What we didnt expect were the things that happened leading to her big day.

On Tuesday morning that week, she was throwing up and pooping like crazy. At 11:00 am, I called hubby and we brought her to the hospital where she was treated of acute gastroentiritis for 3 days. It was an ordeal all mothers knew too well. Thank God she recovered fast enough. We were discharged the day before her birthday.

Poof! There goes our birthday plans. I was so sad. What could I do in less than 24 hours to make her day special? Add to it the fact that Typhoon "Agaton" has visited the country as if we havent had enough typhoon already. :-(

But I couldnt let my girl's 7th go by without even a cake so at 4pm, amids the heavy rains, we went and bought stuff for the party.

She was a little weak hours before the party but when her friends arrived, she had on a great smile. All my worries were blown out the window. She was happy and that was all that mattered.

So this is how much we spent for our simple birthday party

Cupcakes (50 pcs)- Php 450
Cake accessories- Php200++
Letter and number balloons- Php 13 each
Buntings- Php 68
Party hats-Php 89
Party poppers (3pcs.)- Php35 each
Groceries for the food - Php3000+++

And the food:
Pasta carbonara
Fried chicken
Grilled fish

All that fun for just under 5 thousand pesos( $100 more or less). That small amount for some priceless 7th birthday memories.

Cheers to a great, healthy year ahead for our big, little baby girl!
