Hello there beauties! Hope your long weekend was well-spent like ours. 🙂
Months is fast approaching and it’s only 5 months before Cloud’s first birthday. It sounds exciting for a first-time mom like me. Stressful at the same time, for scouting best suppliers to make his big day a success. I‘ve been a member of Female Network – Girltalk for years now and that is where I got most of my party ideas such as venue, catering and a lot more.
The venue is the most important part of party planning. Once you have your venue, everything will follow.
I first heard about One Cafe and Events on one of the birthday stories in Girltalk. I found this venue very convenient as they have in-house catering.Furthermore, they are located in Ortigas which is accessible for our guests from South and Northern part (I’m from Laguna and hubby is from QC). I’ve been eyeing on this venue since April because it is really difficult to score during peak season (birthday party will be in January 2016). I’m glad we were able to block our preferred date yesterday. Happy mommy here woot woot!
At last, I could move on to the other details. I’m excited on planning Cloud’s birthday because it’s a carnival theme and as much as possible I want this in detailed.
See photo below. I hope I could pull this off with some DIYs.
We were supposed to just have an ocular inspection on our visit but we eventually pay 5000php to blocked off our date. It was love at first sight lols. Since we have 200 guests, we will occupy both function A and B. I was able to take a photo of function A only because function B is currently occupied for 80th birthday.
What I love about One Cafe and Events
1. Good lighting
2. It has ample space but not sure yet for 200 pax
3. Nice parking, they will validate your ticket and will pay 30php flat rate instead of charging per hour
4. They offer almost everything a birthday party needs from event styling, catering to food carts
5. Clean comfort room
6. Location is accessible and easy to find
7. Free venue when you avail their packages which starts at 385php/head
What I don’t like
1. Low ceiling but I don’t mind
I will make a separate review on this after the event. Our next visit in October will be food tasting and to finalize our package.
One Cafe and Events is located at Unit 602, One Corporate Center, Julia Vargas Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
