    Hi mummies.

    How did you celebrate your babies' 1st month and where was it held?
    Whats the overall cost?
    Did you give away cakes as well?

    Was hoping to do a buffet thingy at his parents place, coz hubby dowanna mess up our own hse. FIL suggested we hold it at some resturant instead and just invite immediate family members. However, we'd like to invite close frds as well, so at a lost now.
    Dun really like the idea of a chalet too. :embarrassed:

    Cakes I can't remember how much it costs . We ordered 20 boxes and given only to family members .

    Ya lo most ppl give ang baos so can recoup the expenses spent .
    Chalet for full mth dont sound ideal . Maybe I pantang .
    If 1yr old bday at chalet still can consider .

    Most ppl held it at home?
    Headache now la, PIL suggested doing a Hi Tea or buffet lunch style, which I think is good too, coz dowanna clear up the mess at home later.
    But, so clueless on where to find venue that costs less than $20/pax.

    Re: 1st Mth celebration

    There's ppl who hold their child full month with high tea / lunch buffet .
    My relatives did that , book half of the place 30pax and held their full month there .

    Chalet is very unlikely people hold full month there unless is 1yrs old bday .

    At home hold buffet is much more convenient & at the comfort of yr home .

    Re: 1st Mth celebration

    u may want to consider namly lounge from kriston catering. very nice air con sit down place for celebration. my rom celebration was done there. very nice food & atmosphere. the venue is free as long as u cater their buffet as they own the lounge. free parking also. but the location a bit diificult to get in if no transport. everything else was gd. u may want to check ore detail on kriston website or call michael he's in charge of namly lounge 64651208.
    Kriston Food & Beverage Pte Ltd

    my baby full mth was done at the linkway below my block. food from neo garden. they give discount for baby full mth. food was good though still prefer kriston.

    i also don't like the idea of chalet. pantang for one reason & some chalets looks quite run down.

    angbao receive from friends & relatives were more than enough to cover the cost of buffet for both my rom & baby full mth.

    hope this helps
