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.

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.
