Fairy tales do come true.

Best Blogger Tips
Never underestimate a child's fantasy.  It is rather possible to turn it to reality these days.  When we were young we used to dream of being a superhero dying to save the world, a villain acting on revenge or a princess who's waiting for her prince to come. Playing pretend helps kids exercise their imagination in order to learn.  The simple villain and hero rivalry brings into the child's consciousness that there are rules to follow, hence there is good and evil in this world.  I think it would be a mistake to discourage kids to build castles in the air since it would play a great role in early education.

Last Thursday, our friend Heart gave us the opportunity to step into a child's fantasy and impersonate someone that will help materialize a dream.  Now I can say for once in my life I was a Princess, and I think most kids believed it (hahaha! chos).  Parties nowadays are I can say more vividly demonstrative in creating that wonderland inside a child's mind - mascots, princesses, huge candies, balloons, food, cake, decorations, shows, etc (name it and it's surely achievable).  The stint we did is for a 2 year old kid's party and boy did someone spent lavishly to set up this masterpiece.  I was in awe when I checked out every detail that was put to use for that party.  

It was  very exciting for me since I'm going to throw a bash for Kaya when I go home for vacation on her birthday this September. I've already reserved the venue and made deals with suppliers.  I wanted to give her the best party because it's been a while since she celebrated her birthday with me on her side.  As a frustrated party organizer, I paid attention to even the littlest specifics just to make sure everything is in harmony.  I had so much fun planning and preparing everything with my friends.  Oh, I can't wait to party with Kaya Jamaica, a few more months anak, a few more months to go.

Thank you Heart for this opportunity. We truly got a kick out of the experience.

It's fun to eat after everyone has eaten because we got to have the whole buffet to ourselves! YEY!
Oh yes, that's me scrutinizing every detail used in the Kid's buffet, bringing home ideas for Kaya's party of course
