Last weekend was quite busy. The hubby and I drove to Manila on Saturday to finish some errands and that night, we hosted a dinner at home to celebrate the 35th wedding anniversary of my parents. To make it more fun, I asked my two godchildren and the usual suspects (a.k.a. their families) to come because they weren’t able to visit me on Christmas Day. We also invited some neighbors and of course, our new neighbors, haha. Because of the tight sched, I wasn’t able to prepare anything edible and so I just had food delivered to our house. We also dropped by S&R Baclaran to pick up some cake and ice cream for desserts. It turned out to be a beautiful night filled with chatter and laughter.
Last Christmas 2013, I threw a tea party for my godchildren at our Bacoor home. (I know, super late post!) 🙂 It was attended by just two of my godchildren along with their mommies and several cousins. I think I had a total of 10 guests then which I fed with my own cooking and some store-bought fruits, nuts and candies. Of course, we had tea as drink to complete the experience.
It was my first time to host a tea party and it proved to be fun and challenging for me at the same time. Because the tea party was scheduled at 3pm, I went to the supermarket the day before to buy the supplies I needed. On the day of the event itself, I woke up early to bake some chocolate chip cookies and a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, prepare some bite-sized whole wheat sandwiches and whip up my special linguini carbonara.
