DIY Banners, Invitation & Bookmarks


My turning 7-year-old daughter is asking for a party on her upcoming birthday on February 5 but due to budget constraints we decided not to throw one for this year.  But then again, as parents we want to make our kids happy on their special day that’s why I have talked to my hubby and told him my plan of celebrating our daughter’s birthday with a simple party in school.  It may be simple but I intend to make it fun so the kids and Zoie will enjoy the party.

My plan is to ask relatives and friends, particularly the godmothers of my Little Zoie to sponsor party stuff and food we need for the party.  Hubby agreed with my proposal and let me handle everything for the party.  I have assigned and talked to her godmothers and a couple of her aunts to contribute game prizes (Ninang Mitch), spaghetti and juices (Ninang CB), balloons (Ninang Yssa), loot bags (Tita CM), Sofia the First princess gown and additional food for teachers (Lola Mommy), and to cook the pasta (Tita April).  Now, you’re wondering what am I contributing to this birthday party… I’m doing the cake, cupcakes, party decorations, planning games and additional food for the kids.

Since this is a budget constraint Sofia the First themed party, I am also excited to plan this because I am doing DIY party decorations.  I have found Sofia the First party theme printables.  I have printed ‘Happy Birthday’ banners, invitations and the bookmarks that will be included in the party loot bags.

Actually, this my first to plan/create DIYs in a birthday party, also I’ll be creating Sofia the First Amulet of Avalor.  Stay tuned.
