Since we were all taken by surprise by the whole graduation hullabaloo, H and I thought match it with a surprise party. Why not? I was so excited that when co-parents from her school were still protesting about it and demanding the school to postpone it for next year, in my mind I was thing. " Not in your life, we're already planning a party!".
There was no way we were gonna have a party at home as my house angles would be on vacation on the date I wanted so after a little scouting around we decide on having the party at Felicity Home Kitchen/ Patisserie. It is 20 minutes away from our house and is perfect. Read more about Felicity Patisserie here.
The owner, Carol De Leon was most gracious and accommodating. She, herself sat down with us and discussed the details with us. This is besides the fact that she hold a job at Del Monte Philippines. Overall the exchange was very comfortable and pleasant. I knew we were in good hands.
The other side of the planning stage was the surprise part aspect which was nerve-wrecking! Lesson learned if you want to invite my mom to a surprise party, do not tell her about it, In other words, let her be surprised as well. It was good thing she compliments her granddaughter, Yellow who is phlegmatic. (which is an understatement)
We chose an iPhone theme since she loves her phone. I am so grateful to my many accomplices for a successful grad party from my parents, our siblings, friends and extended family. Of course we would not have done it without Felicity Patisserie's oh so pretty place and delicious food
Here are some takes of party. I hope you enjoy them! Cheers!

Instead of a cake, we opted for these red velvet cupcakes with fondant toppings of app icons.
The dessert buffet: Red Velvet Cupcakes, Blueberry Cheesecake cups, Carrot Bars
The yummy food!
