For a who was born and raised and lived in Baguio City going to the beach on a Black Saturday and celebrating Easter in the sand (beach sand that is) is supposed to be an annual thing. Blame it on the fact that we live in the mountains and we do not really see the sea that often. However, if you repeatedly do the same activity every year sometimes it motivates you to think of doing something else to make the current year’s celebration different. This was our mindset as Easter draws near up until finally we decided to stay in Baguio to celebrate Easter.
My family have just entered in a new venture, that is on balloon decoration, balloon sculpting and twisting. Being the first in North Luzon to get into this business we asked one of the hotels in baguio– Azalea Residences to showcase our product. So long story short Garden Balloons became part of the Easter Fun Fare of Azalea Residences. However, with two children in tow we might have a problem on how we could cater to the clients while taking care of our little ones.
So how do we showcase our product while we also take care of our children? Do everything in advance and join in the fun! Garden Balloons’ master balloon sculptor decided to twist the balloons in advance but not wanting our children to be left out in the fun we bought tickets to Azalea Residences’ Easter Fun Fare with the hope that we would enjoy the day easter egg hunting, eating and playing games.
We bought the tickets for four hundred pesos each, which I think is reasonable. The day started with a liturgical service at 8am and ended at around 9am. We started to display our products which are mostly balloon headbands, and once the children and parents were allowed to enter the event area the headbands disappeared to thin air, everybody wants one. So its time for our master balloon twister to start making more, our case is the same with Baguio Party Land’s face painting, Free Popcorn and free cotton candy everyone has to work double time. So while they make more balloons its time to join in the fun with my daughter. The program started at around 10am but the booths (garden balloons, face painting, popcorn booth, cotton candy booth, horse back photo taking and the photo booth) were already open at 9am. So the children enjoyed the booths while waiting for the program to start.
The children were excited when everybody were called in to the event area, Azalea Residences staff prepared games and prizes for the children. Their Chef prepared a scrumptious meal for everyone and to top it all off one of Baguio City’
