We got our caterer and venue for Lia’s birthday party through our events planner.Â I was only supposed to get their kiddie party packageÂ but when we communicated online, the events planner told me she could also help me out with the venue as well. We have been looking for venues all over Quezon City and even considered the clubhouse in the village but there was nothing really concrete about our plans. It was a good thing the party planner got this venue for us.
The use of the venue/function room for 4 hrs is free with a minimum food catering booking of P15,000. In excess of 4 hrs, standard rate which is P1,200/hr applies.
Here are the following amenities as listed in Baby Nathan’s Kitchen’s website:
- tables and chairs
mantle and tablecloths
flower arrangement for the buffet table
centerpieces for each table
sound system (amplifier, speakers, microphone)
At first we thought the venue was too small to hold a party for 100 people, having seen only photos of the venue. When we went to the building for our food tasting three days before the actual event, we had a good look and feel of the place and figured we could fit 100 people in there as long as there were some tables and chairs set up in the open-air roofdeck outside.
They were able to fit up to 8 tables inside the venue without making it too crowded but as it turned out, a lot of guests came and it was good that we had tables and chairs set up outside. Sure they had no air-conditioning, but they did have a good view though.
We could not fit the ice-cream cart inside so the cart was also hanging out on the roofdeck. People who were getting ice cream cones hung out on the roofdeck, with the wind blowing on their faces and a superb view of the Metro Manila skyline – Ortigas, Makati and Taguig’s Global City.
The stage was on the left side of the entrance doors and it was decorated by the events planner. There was a little space in front of the stage allotted for the children’s games, and if we had a set-up for the kids, that would also have been on that space.
We had a menu of baked macaroni, pork blanquette, chicken teriyaki and vegetable tempura along with rice and one round of iced tea. This was the buffet set-up on the far end of the function room, rightmost side from the entrance doors. The setting could be improved but the food was good enough.
