Celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas with Fellow Mom Bloggers

3 December 2016. Mommy bloggers took time off from their busy schedules to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas at the Pancake House in Tomas Morato, Quezon City filling the place with happy chatter and friendly banter.

This year, the ladies behind the Mommy Bloggers Philippines (MBP) have come up with an intimate gathering of 20 mommies from the group. Just to clarify and also as explained by Louisa,  one of the admins of MBP – the party was much smaller this year as compared to the previous ones because  the demands of their responsibilities in MBP as well as that of their respective jobs required a bigger chunk of their time. Putting it into perspective, their busyness at MBP could mean that more and more brands are tapping our MBP community, paving the way for mommies who blog to share their views and opinions on certain products and services. 

MBP Ladies
The Women Behind MBP: Joy, Louisa and Lani

There may be a few of us who gathered last Saturday but we will still be able to celebrate Christmas with the rest of the mommies of MBP through the exciting Christmas Gift Swap. I can’t wait to share about it in my next post. :)

Going back to my party post…..

The party was scheduled to take place from 11am to 3PM. I came in a little after 11 and saw a few mommies at the venue with the crew from Pancake House bringing in food from the main restaurant next door.  Julianne, our official photographer from When Worlds Collide was already there capturing moments as they transpire. This lady is so good at capturing beautiful candid moments! Just look at all the photos that I used in this post!

I like how the whole party was set up – from the venue arrangements to the seat plan. Buzy Bee Bouquets Balloons did a great job in decorating the function room of the Pancake House. It was elegantly decorated with white balloons and silver Christmas ornaments, which gave a winter vibe to the place. The MBP Ladies have devised the seating arrangements in such a way that each of us will be sitted next to someone new. I was seated near the end of the table with Nhessie on my left and Jhanis on my right. I’ve seen and chatted with Nhessie before in the previous events that I went to but it was only at the party that I got to know her better. That woman was so full of energy! I really had fun being her seatmate. I was also able to talk to Jhanis, whom I only knew through the posts that she shares on our FB group. It was nice to have finally met her and talked to her. She’s very poised, sophisticated and eloquent.

There were a few games that made us all giddy and excited. Too bad, I didn’t win in any of them. I will be more competitive next time :) We all won in the raffle where each one of us either won a goodie bag or GC. Some of the mommy bloggers were so blessed that day that they were also able to take home big ticket items.

I had a lovely time with my fellow mommy bloggers at the recent Thanksgiving Party at the Pancake House. I’m happy to have new acquaintances and reconnect with the old ones. I have learned something from the tidbits that they shared about their blogging journey, mom life and work-from-home hustle.
