Evolution of Children's Parties

One of my favorite goddaughter is having her birthday party end of this month. I received the invitation already. She has a luau-themed party. I'm amazed by her mom's creativity! Check out the invites...

Birthday parties during my time (hey... that's just about more than a decade or so ago...) were not this elaborate! I remember my seventh brithday I had Ms. Piggy and Mickey Mouse mascots which didn't look much. I don't remember having a party host or magicians. And the games?! I just had palayok and pabitin! I didn't even have a them for my birthday! I remember my aunts from both sides of the family would travel all the way from Pampanga and Ilocos to help with the party, especially the cooking.

My goddaughter attended a classmate's seventh birthday. The girl had 7 wishes... like those done during debuts... 18 wishes! And the girls were made to wear gowns too!

Another friend had a party for her daughter when she turned three... she had mimes...

But don't think I won't be joining the trend... I already have a theme for my son's first birthday about 11 months from no... and I'm sure my mom will be happy to jump in and join in the planning!

Ahhh planning for the first birthday party... for me, it was so much more stressful than planning a wedding!!! While the party itself was fun, I was sooo glad when it was over!
