Our first choice for the reception was Sweet Pea at the Venice Piazza McKinley Hill. We liked the place kaso di naging okay usapan namin. It's actually the reason why we chose St. Michael's parish because it's near the Piazza. 

We ended up booking at Guilly's, Glorietta 5. The funny part there is that di pa namin napupuntahan ni Eric yung place when I suggested it to him. I found out about the it from Maqui (sis in nawie). I read her blog about her son's baptism. We reserved the place siguro mga 3 weeks before the event. We did not book the entire place because they want us to book a minimum of 80 pax and for some reason, the price per head is higher even if you commit on more guests. 

To our disappointment, when we went there to check on some details, Agnes, the manager told us that they accepted another booking and some of our guests will not be accommodated inside. Super bad trip talaga. I expected at least a call from her to confirm how many guests are we really having to finalize the table arrangement, but no, there was no advice. 

I was not able to eat well during the event so I can't say if the food was any good. But since it's eat all you can buffet, with pasta and mongolian choices, I'm sure the guests found something they wanted.

Dress / Shoes / Candles / Giveways

I used Pink ribbon for the candles. As for the dress, we used the same dress that her ate Alec used. She used it on her baptism only. Nagpaka practical na lang so we did not buy her a new dress since one time lang naman isusuot.

I saw the cute photo/note holder at Landmark. I didn't have the time so I asked Eric to choose and buy.

For special favors to the godparents, I ordered cupcakes from Tinapay ni Tinay. I actually talked to Tinay siguro five days before the event. Ganun ka rush and I'm happy to say na masarap naman and nice naman ang dating.

Guest sheet

Instead of the usual Guest book, I copied this idea from another nawie, sis Maqui. She was kind enough to email the file she used for her son Aki. We had fun reading the messages from our guests.

Flu vaccine

We all had our flu vaccine today. Alehra didn't cry, sooo brave :)

The band-aid has a check mark and it's cute.
