Zeeka’s First Halloween Party: DIY Decorations from Memory Crafters

Once you have your first born, all occasions are exciting and everyone really prepares for it — the baby’s first Christmas, first Easter and first Halloween. And as expected, in or household, we are preparing for two Halloween celebrations. We had the first one last Sunday. This Halloween Party was with the babies of our Birthing Class under Miss Rome Kanapi.

It was actually a reunion, but we decided to make it a Halloween Party to make it more fun! 🙂 All of us are first time moms and dads so this was an event that we were really looking forward to. We had it in my lola’s house and being the host and after launching our (my sister and I) party planning business, we decided to decorate the place and DIY the decorations. Don’t get us wrong! Memory Crafters (our business) is into event coordination for kid’s parties/baptisms, so we outsource most of the stuff to suppliers, but we can DIY ‘some’ stuff here and there.

I’m so excited to share the pictures with you. Here is how we decorated the place.

BABY OOTD: Ines Moda Infantil Dresses

Hi Lovely Readers! Today is another day where we feature Baby Z’s Style or BABY OOTD for the day. We didn’t get to feature a style last week to give in to my post on visioning for moms, which we thought would be more important for you to know about and sign up for since the workshop will be tomorrow. So with us skipping featuring an outfit last week, we will be featuring two outfits.

Baby Zeeka’s BABY OOTD for the day is from Ines Moda Infantil.

I want to be a model when I grow up

I really love these baby clothes and dresses from Ines Moda Infantil. These are the two outfit that we have which are of Zeeka’s size. The other outfits for BABY OOTD that we have from that store are for a 12 month old baby so they are still a bit big for Baby Z.

We hope that you like Baby Fashionista, Baby Z’s OOTD. ‘Til next Friday!

Ines Moda Infantil: Lovely Dress for Baby Fashionistas

I have received a lot of email from readers asking me where I usually buy the baby clothes of Baby Zeeka. Well, I actually get them from different stores. The reason why I came up with the Baby Z’s style corner section of this blog is to take you through the shopping journeys that me and Baby Z have shared. We want you to join us in our next adventures!

For this week, I am featuring Ines Moda Infantil. This is a little store where one could get really cute dresses for your little girl.

How did I discover this place? I heard about it when my SIL, Neva of ManilaMommy.com tagged me in one of her photos of a dress — a dress that looked cute for Zeeka. I later learned that the store is just walking distance away from where we live. Ines Moda Infantil has a store in Kensington Place near Burgos Circle, BGC. So, with that, one sunny afternoon, Baby Zeeka, yaya and I went out to go shopping!

When I got to the store, I was so excited and I went through each and every dress. We were the only ones there during that time, so I got to concentrate (yes, shopping requires great concentration!). 😉
