62nd Birthday

Life is always busy during the holiday season so it is not surprising that I haven’t blogged for two weeks. As the quote says, “If you see me less, I’m doing more”. I’m quite busy with my offline life and my Holiday To-Do List is not yet over. But I decided to take a break from crafting so I can blog. 

Last month, my mother-in-law celebrated her 62nd Birthday and I made this cake topper using metallic and glittered cardstock in rosegold shades. I just bought the Samantha Upright Script Font last Black Friday Sale so I immediately used it to design this cake topper. 

For our potluck, I told my husband to order at Illo’s Party Trays; if you read my birthday blog post, dito rin kami nag-order. We tried the Ricardo’s Menu Package so for a change, we ordered Annelle’s Treat. The menu package has 4 viands, rice, and cake. 

Annelle’s Treat PHP4,800 

Kare-Kare ni Lola Remy 
Crispy Pork Binagoongan 
Chicken Salpicao 
Fish Fillet with Special sauce 
Pandan Parsley Rice 
Cake of your choice 

We paid an additional PHP150 because we chose Tiramisu Love for the cake. My husband paid (online banking) and picked up the order as early as 9:00AM for our brunch celebration because my mother-in-law has dialysis after. 

Our potluck was a hit and my favorites are kare-kare and crispy pork binagoongan. Masarap yung bagoong nila. The tiramisu is just okay for me, I prefer the version of Contis and Cafe Mary Grace.
