If you’re looking for a party venue, why not consider Shakey’s in SM North Edsa. I had my son’s birthday party there and I just want to share it with you (this post is dedicated to my imaginary readers looking for kid’s party venue plus party ideas at affordable rate).
I always wanted a party held at place inside malls. Why? First, mall is very accessible. I won’t have the hard time giving instruction to my guests on how to get to the venue. Second, there are lots of parking spaces in case most of them bring a car. And, guests may want to do malling or shopping after since party usually lasts for 2-4 hours only.
Shakey’s in SM North Edsa has a function room with a capacity up to 100 persons. Though I want party to be held at a place inside malls, I still choose a place (restaurant) where we (family and friends) would have our own privacy so a
Use of venue is free if you reserve or avail their required minimum number of guest. Also, you are required to avail the amenities for less than P4K. Amenities include invitations, party hats, loot bags/souvenirs, prizes for games, a frame where guest may write message to celebrant, use of tarpaulin, few balloons, party host and use of sound system.
I didn't make or spend on personalized invitations. I just used the free invitation cards from Shakey’s which I think is practical. I gave them to family and friends who are actually neighbors; and to my officemates. And, I created an event on Facebook and used it to invite family and friends who aren't near without having to meet them to personally give the invitation card (very much practical).
Mascot is not included in the amenities. I paid less than P1K for Captain Shakey’s.
Cake is also not included. Instead of ordering a typical customized 1-3 layer birthday cake, I chose cupcakes which I placed in a 3-tier cupcake tower plus one 9-inch Superman themed cake. Btw, Shakey’s offered only Justice League themed party that time (Superman for boy celebrant and Wonder Woman for girl).
Cupcakes and cake are from Blushing Cupcakes Café. Please read my separate post about those cupcakes and cake in case you’re interested or you like my idea.
If you will notice, there’s a balloon arch (above photo) on the cupcake tower and cake. My friend has a talent in balloon decorating and made that, also the balloon pillar and balloons on the center tables like this one (below photo).
You could email or post a comment if you need a balloon decorator for a very reasonable price since friend is only starting in this business. She used to décor only for families and friends. I would love to refer my friend to you. Btw, she only accepts weekends (Sat & Sun) events.
For additional party ideas, Shakey’s has official supplier for photobooth, clowns, food carts, chocolate fountain etc. A friend lent me her chocolate fountain and used it instead in this party (another practical idea).
In addition, I put a candy corner for the kids. There were lollipops, candies, chocolates, jelly drinks, gummy bears and Trolli Sour GlowWorms which I bought from Landmark Supermarket and S&R Membership Shopping.
Too bad, the Chocolate Fountain didn't work. Anyway, the kids still have enjoyed and the choco fondue was almost consumed/emptied after the party. I should have brought a red tablecloth. That pink tablecloth (in above photo) was an eye sore (haaay..).
Before I forget, here’s the set meal I selected per pax with 1 glass of iced tea each (same set meal for kids). Cost: less than P200.
All in all, it was a great party for me indeed. I know son had a great time celebrating his birthday with his dearest family and friends (mom knows) which I think is the most important. I love you son! Wish you all the best in this world..
Till next time!
