Celebrating Rochelle Rivera's Disney Birthday Party

I was very happy to be invited once more to the birthday celebration of one of the bloggers that I look up to - last year the theme was a Unicorn Party and this year the voted theme was a Disney Princess party!

I have looked up to Rochelle when I first saw her posts in Mommy Bloggers Philippines and even as a woman when I first met her in person when she invited me to her son's 7th Birthday party and that's how I saw how hands-on and down-to-earth she was.

I was very excited for the celebration that I even prepped in sharing different Disney Princess inspired looks on my IG feed, plus I rented a costume - hey it is not everyday that you get to be princess right?

That week was stressful for Rochelle because of the threat of Ompong and I am sure along with her followers and friends that we all prayed that the typhoon would not stay to literally rain on her princess parade. I think the prayer warrior plan worked and good enough it was sunny last Sunday morning of September 16th.

I was early at the event hall of Bleu Hotel Pasig since I also offered to do free make overs for a few of the guests and from 10AM to 2PM - with no lunch in between I was able to do make up for 5.

The program started a little late - since Rochelle is very hands-on she catered to everything from set-up, to logistics and even with a helping hand, is still took most of her time but who cared that it started late, you could see on every guests face the excitement with their costumes on and the numerous photos that were being taken since most would only talk online and this celebration even gave them the chance to bond personally. 

Each table was set with an assigned Disney Princess and giveaways that suited the theme perfectly. Food booths were set up and I have to say that Porky Pit easily  became a fave - imagine chopped Pork Lechon Belly in a shawarma wrap.

Rochelle wore a stunning yellow gown as Belle from Beauty and the Beast and she look absolutely like a dream with her make up done by Aira Bianca. Make Up Artistry. 

There were games for everyone who wanted to join and the best part was when Rochelle decided to surprise the guests that had the same birthday month with a necklace inspired by Beauty and the Beast and cupcakes. 

A dance number was done by Rochelle's followers to the tune of Boom, Boom! where she even joined in herself. Forgive me, I was totally terrible with taking photos that day and I even failed to vlog partially I was a little tired with the make up I did at the start of the event and secondly, my costume wasn't movement friendly (heavy wig!).

The highlight of the celebration was the Best Disney Princess contest where all the attendees that came in costumes were asked to join, so they could pick a top 5. The prize at stake was a crown, a bouquet of Pastillas roses from Sweet Blooms and a trip to Disneyland. 

It was tough competition for all the judges since everyone looked amazing - yours truly was picked along with 4 other equally beautiful contestants to battle it out in a Q&A section - then surprisingly I won. I was honestly happy enough to have been in the Top 5.

I think this the secret of Rochelle and her blog - she connects to everyone on all levels and places her followers in the spotlight. I couldn't imagine organizing such a big event - but this surely shows how big her heart is. 

Thank you Rochelle for having me and sharing your blessings in such a generous way. Thank you also to her sponsors for helping her making this amazing celebration possible:
