Sticky Bean's Full Month Celebration

This is quite post dated, Baby Ashlene's full month celebration was held on 26 October 2013. As Sticky Bean arrived prematurely, I didn't have time to plan a nicely themed full month celebration for her. I will make it up for her 1 year old birthday. And yes, I did fulfill my promise. CLICK HERE to check out her 1st Minnie Mouse Birthday Party.

We're like in a rush for the whole day, we didn't even get a chance to take a family photo argh!!! here are the limited shots that we have, also thanks to a friend who took some really pretty pics of ashlene.

Not wanting to spend unnecessary money on ordering banners just for couple hours of usage, i've diy her banner!

This is pretty simple to do, all you need is a printer at home, purchase some fancy paper and ribbons.
Print the letters on A5 sizes, cut it with fancy patterned scissors (you can buy them at Daiso for just $2), paste it on another fancy paper preferably a colour of contrast from your letters, punch holes and tie them up with ribbons.
It doesn't show very well in the photo but I have pearly pink stock card as the background against cream coloured paper where the letters were printed on.

Catering is from Select catering, had wanted to try Xin Yi Pin cos of their reasonable prices and the complimentary cup cakes which will look lovely at the buffet table but after reading some not-so-good reviews, I've decided to stick to a safer option.
Was deciding between Neo Garden Catering and Select's catering but chose the latter as there're quite a number of feedbacks on Neo Garden's small portion.
Select Catering is high recommended by most and the pricing is reasonable too.


this is the portion for 40 pax.

The drinks are totally not enough though, it's the standard drink dispenser and we only have one of them.
Service is excellent, set up is early as well.

I'd always feel that the typical full month package as door gifts are pretty expensive for the small portion, even for the most reasonably priced, Sweetest moments, it cost about $6 per pax and all you have is 2 pieces of cakes, 2 ang ku kuehs and a red egg. Most guests find it a hassle to bring the boxes back and will just try to finish it off before heading back. (at least that's what I've been doing). Hence i've purchased a different kind of door gift instead and the prices are very reasonable!

I've bought these cutesy towels in a form of sundae cones as door gift and they act as decor to the venue as well. 
The best part is, all these cost me $1.20 each only! you have to purchase at least 50 pcs though.

She even prepared balloons for the kids. It became a hit with the kids and they have a variety to choose from.
My aunt provides balloons for parties as well and her prices are really reasonable, it goes as low as $50 for a huge variety of ready-made sculptures and decors - self collection.

Thank you all for attending Baby Ashlene's Full Month Celebration. We did not invite a lot of people as we intend to make it a cosy affair.
Even though we have less than 50 guests, we didn't get to spend enough time with more of our guests and the worst was, we didn't even get to take many photos!
