Merm's 50th Birthday

I was sorting out some photos when I stumbled upon this album only to realize that I have an unblogged item. Of all the occasions, I overlooked blogging about my mom's 50th birthday!

Well.. better late than never :P

 It was indeed a happy day for our family because we got to celebrate the birthday of our ever loving and caring mother. It was just a simple dinner with a few guests being our family and mom's closest friends.

Our Wacky Family


We almost always want our family events to be simple and personal, thus the DIYs. Merm's favorite color is yellow.. and since it's her 50th birthday, we decided to end up with the yellow, gold and black (for some kick) theme.
Merm (my mom) is really a good cook. She personally prepared all the dishes for her special day.
I did the backdrop out of metallic paper, cartolina and some gold Magic wires. We just added some gold coins around the ordered cake to adhere to the "gold" theme since it is Merm's 50th

Upcycled centerpiece out of San Mig Light beer bottles, ribbons and magic wires. Notice the candle cup? I just wrapped a purified water cap (the ones in gallons that we get from the water delivery guys) with foil. #kuripotmuch

My sister purchased these balloon from Divisoria. Togeteher with our friends, we built this balloon pillar
