We’re having some Filipino fiesta vibe today all the way from La Union! Mommy Farrah shares: “We hail from San Fernando City, La Union, where event stylists are not common and it costs so much to get their services.” So off she went and planned Hopia’s DIY party, with the help of family, friends, students, officemates, neighbours, etc! This wasn’t a Filipino-themed party just because they served the usual Filipino treats (think: taho, binatog, bibingka, etc), or had a make your own halo-halo bar, or the fact that their guests were donning their Filipino best. It was a Filipino party more because it seemed everyone got involved in the preparation for Hopia’s birthday, working as a community; give it to the Filipinos to always lend a helping hand!
More from mommy Farrah here:
I scoured different party sites to get an inspiration. Princess theme was definitely out since her 2 older sisters had them during their respective birthdays. There was a lot to choose from but I realized it would be nice to go back to our roots and showcase the Philippine culture. At first, I was nervous if I could pull it through given that there are different elements of our culture but I zeroed in on what we have during fiestas and the local food we usually have for merienda. I had a lot of ideas, thankfully my friends and officemates were so ready to help.
