Any mummies have experience on baby full month? Any suggestion where to hold baby full month other thn home (my house is still in a mess & crampy, not appropriate to invite relatives & friends over and will be very stuffy). I've actually tried to book pasir ris chalet but the date i want to all fully booked. Alternatively, want to hold at my friend's condo but just recently there's a deceased in his family so not convenience.
I was wondering where do you mummies hold full month party for your little ones. I'm getting anxious as the time is drawing near & i still have no concrete plan.
Community club? Or another friend's condo..
We didnt do baby full month. Too troublesome. Just buy those close relatives and friends some vouchers for cakes.
hw about your inlaws' or parents' place? or void deck? my hubby's friend booked the void deck for his daughter full month and 1st bday. very spacious and cooling.. somemore his house that area are quite new...
I'm still hoping to find another friend's condo but cant think of anyone.
maybe you can try inlaws/parents/relative's place.
You can do a simple gathering at your own place. You can order catering for your guests depanding on how many guests you are inviting.
Try to break up your guests lists so that both you and the little prince can have ample rest in between.
Try to get some help if you can in between coz it really helps alot. Maybe you can rope in your dad, hubby or sister for help. If there are any Mummies who can help along will be great too.
Never try to make it a big affair or make it till late at night cause it will cause both you and baby to be tired. Lastly, try to relax as much as possible. Take it slow
You might want to hold it at a hotel if you have budget or restaurant?
Otherwise, I think your house void deck or another friends' condo is also a good idea...........
maybe you want to rent a BBQ area at ECP or something?
if really cant find a decent place, maybe you wanna take one of the mummies advice? just give voucher?? then when your baby 1year then you book a chalet and invite everyone there??
CC should be ok.Can go and book the function room i think.Not sure how much it costs though.
My suggestions will cost abit of money.
One option is Hi Tea buffet @ a hotel/ restuarant. Our baby's Full Month celebration was held at AquaMarine @ Marina Mandarin Hotel. They have a private corner, which could accommodates up to 100 guests and they will provide a playpen for baby to rest at a corner of the private area.
The manager, Danny, gave us a 20% discount if we could confirmed 55 guests and threw in complimentary red eggs for all my 109 guests.
Advantages about having a hi-tea buffet, no worries about:
1) food spread. The wide variety will suit all ages.
2) food quantity. The staff will keep refilling the food to ensure none of the dishes will go empty. In other words, eat till your guests drop. So, will not cause awkwardness of not enough food catered for guests.
3) food quality. Cooked food are always piping hot and fresh. Cold items are always chilled.
4) attendence. They charge according to the number of guests that turn up.
5) cleaning the house after the celebration.
6) guests can mingle around comfortably in an aircon area.
7) nice ambience.
Alternatively, if you prefer to have even more privacy, you can call Marriott Hotel or Essential Brews @ Holland Village. They have a Baby Shower package, which includes the use of their private function room and decoration of the function room.
If you are an OCBC card member, there is a 15% discount for the baby shower package held at Marriott Hotel but I'm not sure if this promotion is still on.
Hope my suggestions help.
pin slpt almost thruout her full month! lol!
My girl was very tired from first month celebration and knocked out for the night LOL!
For us we had first month + house warming together at our home. Order buffet and my mum made red eggs and ang ku kueh. Actually it's good to have it either at home or near your home. Easy to handle baby.
