After a couple of months of preparation which includes white lies, ninja moves, and DIY prowess, finally, I was able to pull off this surprise birthday party for my love! Insert big sigh of relief here!
I’ve planned and prepared bigger events than this party before but boy, this was the most stressful one! How could it not be when it’s a surprise party for the one you’re almost with everyday? Imagine how sneaky I was during the planning stage! Haha!
Truthfully, it was fun preparing for this party because 1) I have a thing in DIY projects , 2) My family and friends were equally excited about my ideas and most importantly, 3) It’s Mark’s first time to have a big celebration on his birthday and I want to make his special day the happiest!
The most awaited day finally came and adrenaline rush kicked in! Even if I was sleep deprived for a good whole week, I was still pumped with energy and excitement. I was pretty nervous too because if things won’t go well, the surprise party will be spoiled.
I have pegs on how I want the visuals will look like but given the time constraint, that was all we could pull off. But still, it’s the thought that counts right?
Props to Mark’s best friend Dixie because if not for him, there will be no surprise that will happen. He held him off and was trapped with him on their basketball court while we’re busy preparing at Mark’s house. He was heaven sent I tell you! Salute too for my cousins Mackie and Cholo for their acting skills right outside the house when Mark went home earlier than expected while we were panicking behind their closed doors because we were not yet done.
His face was priceless the moment poppers were exploded and a chorus of “Happy Birthday” was exclaimed. He was also speechless, words tangled, and only his smile was visible as he began to take it all in! Awww, my honey was such a cutiepie!
I wasn’t able to take a lot of photos because I was so nervous the entire time!
Thank you for appreciating all of our efforts my love! I wish you nothing but the best and I promise I will be just here for you ’til our hair turns gray! Happiest 25th my honey!! I love you so!
P.S. Will post videos soon!
