Henry's Birthday Party in School

It's almost March! Can you believe it? Time really flies so fast. It's been almost a month since we celebrated Henry's 5th birthday.

Aside from our simple celebration at home, we also planned a class party so Henry can celebrate with all his friends. As much as i wanted to DIY everything, The only thing I got to do myself were the invitations.

Of course, the theme was still Toy Story (his favorite). So, I made a Woody-inspired western cowboy invitation. I'm still thinking if I should offer this design in Party Impressions.

 To match his invitation, I ordered a Woody-inspired cake from Happy Endings. I was so glad that they accepted my order even with only a 3-day notice. Henry loved his cake. And, it was yummy.

For the food, party favors and hosting, we opted to avail of a McDonald's take out party. Henry chose them since they had a Toy Story theme party. Although, they had set meals, they also gave me the option to create my own meal. I love how they offered to change the sodas into fruit juices since they will be serving little kids. There were no additional fees for take out parties. But, we did give them money for transport.

I noticed that they had a different program for school parties compared to their in-house parties. For starters, the candle blowing was in the beginning of the party.

Henry's 5th birthday: A simple celebration at home

Oh my! I can't believe how time goes by so fast. I feel like it was only yesterday that we brought home this little baby from the hospital and that was 5 years ago.


Last Monday, my little Henry turned 5 years old. Although we scheduled a birthday party in school, we  also wanted to have a celebration on his actual birhday. So, we had a simple celebration at home. Henry wanted a suprise party. When it was time for the celeration to begin, he turned off the lights himself and then turned them on again as we all shouted, "Surprise!" He did act surprised though.


There were no games as it was just us adults and Henry. Our handa was simple. We had his favorite spaghetti and lumpia. And, we also ordered barbeque and chicken from Amber's. We love Amber's!


The mother-in-law was in charge of the balloon decorations. There were plenty of balloons hanging on the ceiling. Henry loves Toy Story, so the balloons used were in Buzz Lightyear's colors.
Our DIY party decors
I made the banner. I printed the backgrounds on matte photo cards. The letters are made of cardstocks that were cut using my Silhouette cameo.

Our celebration may have been simple but I'm glad that Henry appreciated it. He kept on saying thank you for his little party. Plus, he had a big grin plastered on his face all night.

Being silly with dad
Happy birthday, baby! I hope that all your wishes will come true. Mommy and daddy are truly blessed to have you in our lives.
