Russell's 5th Birthday Party preps


My son will be celebrating his 5th birthday in school on the 27th, the exact date of his birthday. We are all excited that I forgot to ask his teacher the exact number of his classmates. Estimating the size of the class to 15 students, Ronald and I went to Divisoria last weekend to buy the loot bag contents. Here are the items we purchased and its prices:

20 - Invitations - 36
30 - Lollipop - 80
24 - Loot bags - 30
15 - School kit- 150
15 - Bubbles - 150
Total - 446php

We bought all the items from the basement area of Divisoria mall. The area was so crowded that I didn't bother to scout around for the most affordable items. Monday came and we learned that Russell only has 6 classmates plus 2 kids who attend the tutorial sessions during their class. I think we'll just give away the remaining loot bags to the kids who live in our neighborhood.

A party will not be complete without food and cake. At first, I
considered ordering from the nearest fastfood and have the it delivered to the school. However, Ronald decided it will be more affordable if I prepare the food myself, yeah right, I'm the one who'll cook, so good luck. The menu will be simple; spaghetti, hotdog & marshmallow on stick, chocolate lollipops, drinks and of course the cake. We'll order the cake from Red Ribbon, it will be the Me & Ben 10 cake worth 1,050php.

9 more days to go before the party.

Blessed be.
