Quarantined Father’s Day Celebration

We have so many celebrations this month of June, we just celebrated my son’s graduation, and my husband’s birthday, and two days from now we’re going to celebrate Father’s Day. Just like last year, it is another Quarantined Father’s Day Celebration. To be honest, it is totally fine with us or I don’t know if we are already used to celebrating special occasions at home. The key is accepting that this is the new normal.

Like I’ve said before, it is hard to craft if my husband is working from home because he can already see what I’m doing so there is no more surprise. So again, I’m rushing this project while my husband is out but I have to remind myself not to share this blog post on my social media before Sunday so he won’t see it. Hehehe! I’m just sharing this project just in case you are looking for Father’s Day Gift Ideas.

Since I have very limited time, I don’t have the luxury to design from scratch so I used this Father’s Day Greeting Quotes that I downloaded from Creative Fabrica. I love using SVG files because you can do a lot of projects, whether you want to create digital or physical projects. You can make greeting cards, gift tags, stickers, photo overlays, personalized shirts, mugs, or pillowcases. Your imagination is the limit. 

Anyway, after celebrating graduation and birthday, my husband doesn’t want to have a cake so I don’t need to make a cake topper but I created some Father’s Day Sticks that I can use as a cupcake topper or for a charcuterie board. I chose some phrases that I like, changed the color, and uploaded them to Cricut Design Space for “Print and Cut”. I can’t decide yet if I will use a black or white background so I did not put any stick yet. 

Thank You Dad
Best Dad
Happy Father's Day
My Dad, My Hero
Super Dad
I Love My Dad

When I made my Easy Iron On Pillow Cases, I already cut this “Best Dad Ever” HTV but until now I don’t know if I will put it on the shirt, pillowcase, or wood materials. What do you think? 

And of course, using the SVG files I made some greeting cards. Last time, I only designed one card but for a change, I designed two, one for me and one for my son. I used Photoshop to design the card, and downloaded and printed this on specialty cardstock. 

This is my last-minute project. Good thing that I love DIY projects so even though I am stuck at home because of the global pandemic, I can still do some projects for special occasions. In addition, I don’t need to spend a lot of money because I can personalize my own gifts. 

Here is an update on our Quarantined Father’s Day Celebration. Last Mother’s Day, I prepared our own meals but for Father’s Day, I suggested to my husband na mag-order na lang kami. So I sent him the Phoenix Court Set Meals of The Bellevue Manila for PHP2,500. The meal is good for 3 to 4 people but for our family, parang pwede nga for 6 persons. They have different sets and we chose Set 2 which consists of 

Broccoli Millanes 
Pan-Fried Fish with Teriyaki Sauce 
Fried Chicken with Mushroom Gravy 
Pork Stew with Vegetables 
Beef Salpicao 
Yang Chow Fried Rice 

Last Friday, before my husband went home he dropped by at The Bellevue Manila to reserve and buy ensaymada but the guard informed him na call lang daw. So my husband called the hotel to reserve but unfortunately, fully booked na for lunch so we settled for Dinner Bookings. Pwede delivery but we chose pick-up (5PM) since we live outside Metro Manila. 

As I’ve said before, my husband doesn’t like to have a cake for Father’s Day so I suggested Ensaymada, we love the ensaymada of Pastry Corner ever since we tried it during our staycation in The Bellevue Manila several years ago. Effort nga lang bumili kasi kelangan mo sadyain sa hotel and lalo na ngayon, hindi pwede pumasok sa hotel. You need to call to order and pick up or deliver lang. 

It’s been a long since we ate their Ube Ensaymada and Leche Flan Ensaymada PHP95. I only bought 3 pieces of each bread because as far as I can remember, mabilis yung expiration but now, wala nakalagay na expiration date. You can also order Plain Ensaymada, Chocolate Ensaymada or Malolos Ensaymada. Anyway, we are all satisfied with our order, sulit yung bundle meals nila.
