My very first baby shower.... to host!

We mixed abit of the first and second concept. Black carriages and yellow rubber ducks. Haha it actually turned out really cute and simple. Barbie and I were able to organize a party with minimal costs and still have it looking pretty good. Thanks so much to Barbie for the table setting!

Invites by Chino and I was so particular about dress code that one guest drove back home just to wear her black cocktail outfit. hahaha Sorry! I even brought eight.. yes, eight extra dresses incase anyone was underdressed. Hehe but everyone looked fabulous so maybe bringing those dresses was abit extreme.

Some pictures before the guests arrived. We had two games. (not for kids definitely!)

The prizes courtesy of B. We had more than enough food since everyone pitched in, Thanks people!
One guest kept laughing at me because I must've asked five times for guests to take home their cupcakes. hahaha as my friend Toni would say, I am a party-zilla! =p But anyway! Allan and Eda, congrats congrats congrats! We look forward to meeting the newest addition to the Acuna family and she is definitely the luckiest baby in the world! Hope you enjoyed our gift to you.

Much love, Cal and Barbie.

Post Birthday Celebration

Let me know. =)

Black + White + Yellow = fabulous baby shower

A few changes have been made since the last planning session for my friend's baby shower. After
spending more time with her, she's not into the usual cutie colorful theme.
Infact, when I helped her with the registry, she couldn't find a single toy she liked because the colors were too loud. So we kept the color theme but upgraded the look to make it look more sophisticated yet fun. So this coming sunday, 8 guests are invited to a black and white party
....... with a splash of yellow.
Here are some of the pegs we took inspiration from:

My friend Barbie and I are still hosting this one. She has the best ideas for parties so I have no doubt it's going to turn out beautiful. She even ordered some cupcakes with the carriage design below. Will post pictures soon after the shower is done!

Store of the month: Space Encounters

I decided to do a feature on a store each month because I used to love scouting for new furniture but work always got in the way. This way, I'm forced to do something I love. hehe It's not exactly a hassle. This month, it's a store called Space Encounters on Emerald Ave. in Ortigas just on top of mini stop. Special thanks to owners Wilmer and Thor for allowing us to have a mini photo session there!
Most of their pieces are quirky and fun. Some of the pieces in the picture include the yoda and twiggy chairs and the firefly table. My friend Pam found a lot of cute items that made it to her wish list for her birthday. Btw, she's celebrating it on July 23. =)
I wouldn't have made the time to visit the store if it wasn't one of my items to cross out from the list. Therefore, thank you list for making me come here!
Love the reproductions of the iconic chairs. They make great accents to add some fun into your own space.

Still have to polish the guest list, the date, the games. It's going to happen next month and we just found out it's a girl. Yay, I think Caroline will make a pretty name. Think about it.
