In an earlier post, I mentioned that the month of June made me a busy bee. It was exhausting alright, but the milestone and changes that came with it are all so worth it.

We’ve spent our time and effort on two major events last month. The first one is the dedication of our little one and the last one is moving into a new house. In this post, I will write about the former.

My whole month of June was packed with planning and preparations for our baby Louiji’s dedication. We call it dedication and not binyag or christening. I will create a separate post that will distinguish one from the other.

I started with research for the best caterer, suppliers and venue to find those that will suit our needs and fit our budget. I have spent so many days doing this. I’ve seen things that we’d like to have but are way over our budget. There are those that are really cheap but well, you will just get what you paid for. We did ocular inspections, too, just to see which venue would be most convenient for us and our guests.

After so many discussions and computations, we have decided to Queensland Catering and Woodsville Residences as the caterer and venue, respectively, for Louiji’s major event. We have tasted Queensland menu in one of the gatherings that we have attended and we liked their food, service and setup. Woodsville is our best bet for its proximity, clubhouse layout and rental fee.

Having crafting as my hobby, I could not resist but create DIY projects for our baby boy’s momentous occasion. I have scoured Pinterest and countless DIY, crafting and mommy blogs out there to find inspiration for my projects. The hubby also helped out and showed me several images that matches our party theme which is The Little Man 🙂

Here are my little DIY projects for our Little Man’s Dedication:

I chopped a big eraser to make mustache and LOUIJI stamps.

I hope to do more DIY projects for all of our occasions in the future 🙂
