School Birthday Party


My son just turned 5!

We had a simple celebration at school on his exact birth date and a post-birthday family celebration at home during the weekend.

We haven't planned for a school party, but since he keeps on announcing to everyone his upcoming birthday, we realize that he really wanted to celebrate with his classmates and teachers. That left us with less than 2 weeks to plan the details - from the food, cakes, and loot bags.

School party details -

Food:ordered food from Jollibee for the entire class, the school bus drivers, the school guard, and my daughter's teachers

Drinks: Mango and Orange juice in cups

Cake and Cupcakes: a 10" chocolate moist cake and mini cupcakes from Iko's bakeshop

I prefer the mini cakes since kids can easily eat this than the regular size ones. I ordered a general XBOX design since Iko's bakeshop doesn't create character-themed cakes. I just created Ben10 toppers that I placed on top of the mini cupcakes.

Loot Bag: candies, toys and school supplies

Luckily, Brent won 360+ lollipops and candies from Milkita!

We just added more candies and treats which we bought before I got the treats from Milkita. We packed all the treats in colored plastic, added a tag and tied it with a ribbon. The candy bags are placed inside the brown kraft bag and I've added a small thank you sticker at the fold.

The boys' loot bag contains Ben 10 school supplies, a small Ben 10 character toys, a spring toy and candies! The girls' loot bag contains Hello kitty school supplies, a mini plush charm, a spring toy and candies!

Others: mini cupcakes for the school office staffs; candy packs for other school teachers, and school friends; cashew brownies for the some "yaya's" and moms waiting

Yes, it's just a simple celebration, just like what my son want. But we're all happy seeing him with his classmates having fun.

Everyone enjoyed eating Jollibee food, eating their Milkita lollipops, and choosing their mini cupcake with their favorite Ben 10 characters (even the girls choose their cupcakes too!). Of course, everyone get excited with the loot bags (they're wondering what's inside the brown bag)! They started opening the paper bag as soon as my son gave them one.

I'll be sharing pictures of his post-birthday celebration at home after this post.

I find it nice that you used brown paper as loot bags instead of plastic. Happy late birthday to Brent!
