This would have to be one of the cutest themed parties I’ve ever been to and even with the rain it turned out to be a complete success. Kid’s 1st birthday parties are really big nowadays, almost like planning for a wedding and this one had it all.
Let’s start with the invitation made by one of Miguel’s aunts, Katrina Encanto.
That cute kid on that ticket is seriously Miguel! Haha. Talk about personalizing the theme and making it your own. Thanks Gels for inviting us.
And since we purchased our gift last minute, I had to make do with Mita Bo’s gift wrapping stash which is a whole lot btw. I couldn’t find a wrapper with soccer balls in it (because if I did then that would be pushing it) but this was the closest one I could find. I wanted to make sure the way I wrapped the gift complemented the theme and the occasion, of course.
Yep, we’re in the right place—the LaVista Clubhouse.
And I knew this was going to be big because they had food stalls outside…tacos, hotdog, ice-cream, fish balls, tempura and cotton candy.
This one took the cake….they had a POTATO CORNER stall outside and Marco and I went crazy. How awesome is that!!!
This was the set-up inside when it wasn’t jam-packed yet. We were early birds, we even got their before Gela and Jau did. hahaha. Excited much.
The center pieces were to die for, they had assorted hand-picked football jerseys with Miguel’s photo sitting on top of faux green with stress-reliever soccer balls.
At the back of the jersey center piece, there was a bunch of these world cup inspired cookies ready for the taking.
Mr. and Mrs. Marco Mendezona raided Kuya JV’s closet. Thanks again kuya for letting us raid your jersey stash.
Gela, proud ninang of Miguel and Jau, the sound technician/ spotify enthusiast. Haha.
La Vista ladies—a bunch of football posers. Oh, wait Gela plays na pala. Hahaha.
Did I mention they also has face painting and special effects! Bri opted for a realistic “gash”. haha.
Look who made it to the party…Haven’t seen klarkey in the longest time! Meet her cute daughter, Midori.

Here’s the birthday celebrant with his dad, Basco.
And here’s Miguel with his mom, Melissa.

One word for the dessert table—WOW!
Miguel, the cutie patootie in the middle of the dessert table.
Last but not the least, their giveaways were football stools. We were able to get one for Diego and Mateo, yay!
Nothing’s changed, we still enjoy themed parties. Thanks so much to the Encantos for having us.
Happy happy 1st birthday Miguel! #miguelturnsone #miguelisone
