Fast Food Party (Philippines)

4:37:00 PM




After some serious preparation and planning, we ended up getting another fast food party for December... These were my/our options prior to getting our reservation last Sunday, November 20th, 2011:
Kentucky Fried Chicken Congressional Avenue ~ 
Why? huge parking space and newly renovated
Why not? too far for us (driving from the South) and most of the guests
Shakey's Quezon Avenue ~
Why? huge party place in the country (built for parties)
Why not? they only holds (2) themes: Barney & Justice League

Rosewood Pointe + Blue Petals / Verleo / Passion Cooks + KFC (Kids Menu) ~ similar setup of what we did for my daughter's dedication party last March 2011 except if we get a separate menu for the kids
Why? no major adjustments for we will have the same contacts and the place is perfect for food carts, games and other kids' festivities
Why not? budget, period!

Timezone Glorietta 4 + Jollibee / McDonald's / Burger King ~
Why? accessible and it's like "wow, what's in it for me?" for the kiddos
Why not? i don't find it ideal for a 1st Birthday celebration

Jollibee Madrigal ~
Why? our family is big (both sides) and at least expecting 100++ guests; they can offer (2) party rooms at no extra cost if you are that big
Why not? i just practically love the mascots and a few package they are offering but not the party themes and/or (especially) party favors - they have (3) types of Loot Bags - Standard P25/each, Special P50/each and Premium P80/each (Backpack, Tumbler, Paper Clip, Coloring Book, Stickers/Cards; i think it's pricey and can definitely buy "premium" items for P80/kid

McDonald's Madrigal (near ATC) ~
Why? i just want the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme
Why not? this is actually our last option 'cause we had our son's 1st birthday party at 32nd St., Fort Bonifacio, Global City last 2006 and had a blast but we want something different this time...

Before October, I went to KFC across PGH (nearest from where I work) to get the idea of what they have, ambiance and to see the Dora the Explorer theme - it was love at first sight... :) the prints were perfect, loot bag contents / prizes are not the normal items we see in tiangge and/or Divisoria, in short she is the real Dora that my daughter watch in Nick Jr at times.

Mid of 2011, I promised myself that our budget will not go over than P25,000... Hubby and I are saving really hard for something special before the end of the year or early January. I asked God's mercy and guidance to help us get through this simple project. The answer was given at exactly 01:14 of November 20th. I called KFC Jupiter again to take my chances for our preferred party day. Two weeks prior to the mentioned date, as per the Manager on duty, they are booked from December 15th up but as I was conversing with the person named Jes / Ness over the phone, she noted everything then December 17th is finally ours! :)



As of 11.20.2011:
 Loot Bag (P100/kid) Amenities are Bag Tags, Note Pads, Sticker Sheets and Image Search Game
Game Prizes are Folder, Game Board, Pin Badge and Notebooks
Other Amenities are Party Hats, Balloons, Trayliners, Sign-In Sheet, Cake P775 (available in Chuckie & Dora design)
Party/Package Fee is P4000 (inclusive of the following: Loot Bags, Game Prizes, Other Amenities, Birthday Cake*,  KFC mascot appearance*, Decors, Sound System and Hosting)
*Optional

Menu Packages (30 Packs) are Kids Meal 1: P4860, 2: P3120 and Adult Meal 3: P4350, 4: P4110, 5: P4050

Just to share, we only got 12 (left in stock) pieces of the Dora invitation cards that Sunday. I have tried to negotiate if we could get half Dora and half Spongebob theme (boys' prizes) for the setup since the next delivery will be after 3 more days. Well I know it's impossible, so I really need to get a separate loot for the boys. I just wanted to commend Manager Nina who arranged to have the remaining invites ready the next office day. I work along Taft Ave in Manila and have also requested to just have the cards delivered to my office before 17:00. By confirming the request I communicated that day, right after less than 20 minutes, our office guard accepted a package delivery from KFC. To my surprise, they gave me (30) more cards that we can distribute. Kudos to all of you, KFC Jupiter and PGH crew! Looking forward for the party :)
