A shabby-colorful-chic baby shower for Jobeth

[This is a late post. Congratulations to the Lo family who welcomed their baby X in December of 2014!]

When #Mr&Mrs Lo announced 'their' pregnancy, we couldn't help but be happy and excited for them. We have met and became friends with each other in our mid-20's, while taking our master's degree. You can say it's a relatively short time from then til now to be truly friends with each other. But let me assure you, it doesn't at all diminish the level of connection, care and love for our dear friends. It actually helps that we are in similar stages now - from clueless newlyweds to even more clueless parents! Haha..kidding! :)

So I asked dear Ninang Vien to help me plan a nice baby shower for Jobs; after all, sila din naman ang mga "punong abala" for the surprise baby shower they gave me back in 2013! 

She recommended Sophie's Mom and I can say that it's a really nice place. V immediately booked the branch in Makati. What's nice about it is that we really did not have to do a lot of decorating. The place is so Instagram- and Pinterest-worthy! It's not too big, which made it perfect for our intimate celebration. And for only a minimum consumable amount, we were able to have the place all to ourselves, for the next 3-4 hours. Aside from the pastries like cupcakes and cakes, they also provide yummy party meals :) I definitely loved their pasta and tapsilog! So for party planners, super worth it kasi everything's there na. All you need to do is prepare a short program or games, sit back, relax and have a chill outing!

Okay, I have to give credit to my hubby for the final design of the diaper cake! Gujab!!! 

Because Mader Jobs' fave color is purple, that's what we focused on for some of the details..

This place is just so pretty!! :)

Delicious cupcackes..

The surprise rainbow cake :)

So while waiting for Don, we started with the game. I thought they'd all get it in just a few minutes but they ended up scratching their heads in disbelief. "Madz!! Quiz ba ito??" Hahaha..Sorry guys, didn't know you were not showbiz :p

Baby Shower Pop Quiz
  1. Match the celebrity couple to their kid's name (Victoria & David Beckham, Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck, etc.)
  2. Animal baby names (what do you call a baby cat, dog, or how about a baby dolphin?)
  3. Mommy & Daddy test (will they or won't they get the same answers to -- where baby was conceived, the name they want, etc.)

"Ang sakit na ng ulo namin!" Hahahahaha..

Here I was giving them the answers while babywearing Z.

Don, glad you made it!! :) I hope hindi ka nahilo sa Makati :p

This little baby dolly came with us too!

Group shot! :)

Alright little dolly, let's see if Mr. Lo is ready to be a baby-daddy! Hahahaha..We actually tested him on different papa-hood skillz..:

  1. Changing nappies
  2. Burping
  3. Swaddling
  4. Babywearing in a sling

Xavi if you ever get to read this, be thankful for little dolly. Siya pinag-practicean ni Daddy Vlady mo. :p Thank you so much Mr. Lo for being a nice sport about this! Definitely passed with flying colors! :)

I can see Mommy Jobs was enjoying this portion too much! Hahaha..."Ayos, no need for yaya anymore!" Actually, even the cashier staff were laughing with us during this part of the game!

Ganito ba mag change ng diaper?

At one point Jason even said, "Pre, tama ba?" Hahahaha :)

A glimpse of the loving father..

And here's the lovely couple opening their shower presents :)

Unbeknownst to them, I asked Don to list Jobeth's and Jason's reactions to the presents as they unwrap it. We documented it in her purple scrapbook under: "Mommy and Daddy's reactions while 'making' baby" Hahahahahahaha :))

Okay, and here you can see their reactions as Don read aloud from his list. Jobs found it too funny while Jayson didn't look too amused! Hahaha :) 

So before our reservation was up, it was the couple's turn to share their surprise tokens for us. A tub of Chef Tony's popcorn and San Miguel memorabilia cans for each of us! Yehey! Thank you so much and we hope you enjoyed our celebration! :)

Thank you so much Vien and (my brother) Arvin for helping us with this shower in a major way!
Thanks to my hubby for preparing the nappy cake and taking care of the printouts
Thanks to Don and Diane for your help and input
Thanks to Nick, Wendy and Camille for the active participation

Until the next baby shower, guys! Or wedding?? Sino kaya? Hahahaha :)
