Our Journey Towards Parenthood: Rhian’s Baby Shower

I forgot to write about Rhian’s Baby Shower, pero yung mga DIY stuffs nya di ko nakalimutan. Waahh.. Sorry naman, madami lang akong iniisip ngayon.

Anyway, super duper late post ulit since the event was done last November 30, 2013 pa. Meaning almost 1 month and half na syang nakalipas. Well, better late than never right?! Okay stop explaining na, I make kwento na nga. Hehe. One night, Ian and I are having intimate talk again inside our room when I told him na since namin mag bridal shower and stag party why don’t we give our little princess a baby shower para naman fair db, so he agreed with me. Our initial plan is to have the baby shower at our house, we just call the caterer and that’s it. But when we wrote down our guest list naisip namin na di sila kakasya sa bahay namin. Haha. I already prepare the hand-outs to be use but we need to change it because of the venue. 

Anyway, our 2nd options is to try the Jollibee or Mc Do Kiddie Party, so we do ocular visit to all Mc do and Jollibee outlet here in Makati, MOA and Taguig, as in umaga palang naglilibot na kami para makahanap ng magandang venue. But most of them, fully book na. Waahh.. The last option was to visit Jollibee in Makati Ave, although the place was too small yun nalang kasi yung available on our chosen date.

My husband booked and pay for the reservation while I’m doing some DIY stuffs for the baby shower. On November 30, 2013 the most awaiting moment for our baby girl is about to happen.

Our Guests

I prepared the program for the event which I got from the internet, and also the host provides his own games na super nakakatawa. Haha.

1st game: “Pass the Dirty Diaper”-  have the person pass it to the person next to them (make sure everyone is participating). When the host stops the music, whoever is holding the diaper is qualified to the next game. (Need at least 3 participants)

2nd game “Who sucks the best” - Give 3 winners a bottle and on the count of three they must suck the bottles dry as quickly as possible. The first person to down the contents of his or her bottle wins. (1 winner, 2 consolation prize)

3rd game “ Fruit Salad” – wherein the contestants will follow what the host will tell. Basta para syang body language na super duper nakakatawa. Haha.

Our super kulit host

4th game: “Guess the Mother’s Measurement” - Pass around a ball of yarn and a pair of scissors. Tell each guest to cut off a length of string that they think corresponds to the size of the honoree's belly (make sure no one is cheating by measuring their own or a friend's waist!). When everyone has a piece of string, invite each person up to try his or her luck measuring the mom-to-be's belly. Whoever has a string that comes closest to being a perfect measurement, wins!

5th game: “Bring Me

After the game, it’s merienda time and picture taking with Jollibee. O db, ang saya lang namin. Hehe. And as per host, dapat per table ang picture taking.

Yehey! Jollibee!
Tama bang nagpabuhat kay Jollibee sa asawa ko?!
