After 6 months of waiting, the official photos are finally here!
Children love to doodle, right? Holding a pencil and drawing cute stick figures complete with smiley faces, hair and clothes. I’m a doodle-holic when I was a kid and seeing my son’s eagerness to doodle on anything and anywhere (read: even our walls) gave me the perfect inspiration for his birthday party. Naturally, I checked the internet for more ideas but found nothing. So instead of scrapping this party theme off my list, I thought “Why not?” It’s adorable, fun and something fresh! Both kids and adults will instantly fall in love with this cutesy theme. PS: I know I’m not supposed to say this since I’m his mom and all, but Aedan’s kiddie doodle art themed party is L.O.V.E! Teehee.
When I first approached my event stylist – Kathleen dela Merced of Spark + Twinkle, I didn’t have any photos to show her to make my vision more concrete but I’m glad we were on the same page. I just explained to her some of my ideas and hoped for the best. She managed to make me feel giddy when she presented the sketch of her proposed stage backdrop. As to the other party elements, I left it up to her to just wow me. I am actually glad to have her on board.

For the entrance, various pictures of Aedan were showcased at the registration area while these adorable kids gave the guests a warm welcome.
Just as I requested for the stage backdrop, here’s our own kiddie doodle family portrait. These life-sized 3d pencil and crayons perfected the sketch pad-ish look we were aiming for.
Kathleen wonderfully suggested these floating doodle kids holding 36” balloons for the ceiling treatment. Cuteness overload!
More doodle kids at the table setup. In lieu of table runner, Kathleen simply put a huge piece of paper complete with crayons and requested our guests to make their own doodle art. I also put some of the Aedan’s pre-event photos via our table tent card that doubled as dedication card.
No children’s party will be complete without foodcarts, some side activities, games and magic show. Our party was hosted by Erney Arcilla.
Another big hit at the party was this super fun and cool “It’s Personal” souvenir booth. Guests were invited to choose the design of their own personalized vanity key chains.
I love, love, love Aedan’s birthday cake made by Tazzy Cakes. Each layer looks so adorable! The cake topper was made to match the invitation and stage backdrop.
Our photo op area comes complete with life-sized 3D crayons as props.
Here’s something to delight even the sweetest tooth! Check-out Sugarplum’s yummy sweet offerings.
We opted to give away more arts and coloring materials for the kids to enjoy. The front part of the luggage served as a coloring canvass to give it a more personalized spin. I’m not a fan of those paper mache luggage though, but the colors and idea were perfect for the theme.
I would like to give a special shout-out to this talented lady, Christine Lam of Christine Lam Designs for my lovely dress and Aedan’s uber cute matching coat.
Here’s Aedan, all smiles during his party. Yey!
