But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
So much joy filled our hearts as we offered our darling Patrice to the Lord!
Four days before our sweet Patrice turned 5 months- June 12,2016, we decided to have her dedicated.
Our cherub, Nicola Patrice is Yours Father..from the time you created her in my womb! We thank You for her… yet another amazing GIFT she is!!!
I was blessed to have met Portia of @Gpstoryteller who offered her event services to us. I went with the baby owl theme with pastel colors because this was also the theme during my surprise baby shower (I will eventually write about that too!) She designed the entire venue (ceiling, stage, table center pieces and candy buffet plus she included a popcorn kiosk pa! o ha!) She went beyond what I imagined the dedication to be. The event was extra special already and they made it extremely beautiful. (email: email@example.com)
(Hi to my dear Patty Ang for my beautiful cape dress! thank you!!!)
Our caterer, @Myons, is no stranger! Chef Ivan was the one who cooked for us during our honeymoon stay in Belavista, two days after our wedding. He served us delicious food from breakfast to dinner and snacks in between. In other words, he made us gain a couple of pounds here and there but it was worth it! He has since been part in sharing the joy of our family events and gatherings. This time, all I needed to do was to tell him how many guests we were expecting. It was not a surprise anymore that the food was phenomenal! He served salad, pasta, salmon, chicken, beef and this refreshing pink guava juice. SOBRANG SARAP TALAGA! He is another supplier who always exceeds a client’s expectation… he was our supplier, now also a dear friend.
Now for some food shots! Prepare to get hungry! :p
We had 2 giveaways—
First were cute keychains from @Clayclayee! They were also part of my Chelsea’s dedication 3 years ago and her 1st birthday!
Second were the mini cake jars from @BottledUpPh! It was the perfect dessert! They too have been part of a milestone in my life… our wedding day!
Our cakes were just too beautiful to touch.
The owl cake from @allaboutcakesbyallen and the cherub butterfly cake by @applesconfections. Don’t get me wrong these cakes weren’t just beautifully made… they tasted delicious too!
The Ninang and Ninong, who has captured all and every PRECIOUS moment in my family’s journey to the next milestone… @niceprintphoto…. Words will never be enough… <3 (www.niceprintphoto.com)
And to our Pastor/Ninong who has been and who is ALWAYS there for our family. Thank you forever! We love you!!!!
To our family, Nicola Patrice’s godparents, and our closest friends… this would not be memorable without your presence. Thank you all for coming and celebrating with us! (ALL arrived on time!! Woot!!!! =p )!!!!
Patrick, Chelsea, Patrice and I are BLESSED to have you.
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
