Glam Party for Nanay's 93rd Birthday


How do you throw a birthday party for a Glam Lola?

My maternal grandmother turned 93 this year and we were all excited to give her a fun party that she and those dear to her would enjoy!

My grandmother is a "kikay lola"! 
She always loved dressing up and making herself pretty, unfortunately life wasn't easy then raising a family of 9 children.  
She would always put off her gratification for her family. 

So on her 93rd birthday, we have decided to give her a surprise "glam" themed party. 

My Lola looks forward to her after Sunday mass trip to Jollibee and since she likes it so much... a Jollibee party was in order.


She thought it was  just another Sunday after mass brunch when we walked in.


Here are some of the pictures from birthday celebration:

Jollibee and Hetty came and danced for us. 

Our dear Jollibee host with my cousin Shane of Bloom, Blossom and Grow blog.

It was a blessed day indeed (a bit teary eyed here as you can see)...

My mom making a wish...


Her Glam Tarp




Lootbags and give aways.

We prepared additional items mostly GC's,  cosmetics and kikay items for the adults.



Party set up...




Cakes and cupcakes' inspiration came from the ever reliable internet and recreated by a good friend, Toy Cakes.



Fun games... no KJ in this party :P

The famous bring me...

Our best dressed gets an award!


Good family friends happily graced the event with us...


With my mom's (extreme right) friends, who treat our Lola as their own.


With my family, parents and sister's family.

And more apos...

Grandchildren posts would have been longer, unfortunately 3/4th of our family now lives abroad.

With her pamangkins...


Blowing her cake.  She was a bit teary eyed though while blowing, I guess she was a bit overwhelmed.

Mr. Dante Ward of #SnapClickStudio provided our photobooth.

  4. Love it! I'm a little bit jealous because I don't have a lola - lolas from both sides are already gone and I haven't had the chance to get to know them. I'd love a Jollibee party when I'm older too!

  26. Wow, it's so great that your lola is already 93 but still looks strong and healthy. My own maternal grandmother turned 87 last month and our relatives threw a party for her too.

  27. Wow! Your Lola Ising is still rockin' at age 93- truly awesome and such a blessing from above. How I wish I could reach her age with such grace and great health. Now I am missing my Lola Mommy whom I cared for over 20 years. I love being with children and old people- there is something very special about them that draws me to them. Congrats dear! (Macy)

  29. Belated happy birthday to the glamorous grandma. It was such a nice gesture holding her birthday in a kiddie fastfood. And what's more important was that her friends were also present to celebrate with her.
