The Pow-twins' Birthday Parties


A&A's B-day Parties for the past 3yrs.

As a full time mom, i always make sure that my kids' Birthday Parties are memorable. The pictures here are the Arts & Crafts and kids activities, homemade cakes and preparing  our self-made lootbags. Just want to share here some party ideas for Kids.

A&A's 1st Bday - Luau themed Party.

I bought Hawaiian Leis for everyone and put colorful decorations and floral lootbags on the table.

I started the party with a drawing contest, the best one is the winner and there was a price ;)

I bought a small chocolate fountain, which i still use until now.
Perfect for every occasion. I did diy stuff like pom pom decorations, lootbags and arts & crafts activity for the kids.

I did a group contests and hired a face painting artist. The party is normally for 2-3 hrs but with all the activities that i prepared, i think we extended the party to 5hrs.

The games that i usually do every year are:

Pin the donkey tail
Sack race
Straw drinking contest
Hula hoop game
Egg race
Ring toss game 

And a lot more!

My husband said the normal or a traditional swiss birthday Party in Switzerland is usually few kids or only the best firends at home and simply enjoying a homemade cake by grandma or Mom, which is also nice but i thought why not invite everyone coz it's "the more, the merier" lol,
I mean if you have the time and the budget why not do a big party. I'm not against small gatherings, it's just that i'm not working, and i have all the time in the world to organize everything on my own.
I guess Kid's party planner is the perfect job for me lol :D

A&A's 2nd Birthday- Simply Orange and Green themed party.

Sometimes it's hard to decide what theme to choose, since i have a Boy and girl twins, color theme is always the simpliest option.

I made a barbie cake for Alyzsa and Fire truck for Ayden.

Baking is not my cup of tea but thanks to online tutorials, i was able to make one for the twins ;)

A&A's 3rd Bday- Barnyard themed Party.

The twins love the farm animals.
We live in a countryside which is surrounded by farms/Bauernhof. Everyday we can visit the cows and we're even allowed to touch and feed them. So i thought a Farm bday Bash is perfect for their 3rd party.

if i don't have time to do diy deko, i will just simply buy b-day stuff online and for the last 3 yrs, i always shop in confettibox.ch, they have unique bday decors that i can't buy elsewhere.

And for the first time, i did "Pabitin"  means "hanging". It's a fun traditonal Filipino game for birthday and town festivities. Everyone enjoyed the game even the swiss visitors was amazed of the concept. Good thing, I was able to find wood pieces that i hammered and connected together to create that hanging thing, where i put the candies and toys.


My eldest son's birthday is coming up and he is requesting for a Lego themed Birthday Party.

I'll share photos here soon...

Air14 air show @ Payerne

Air14 Payerne

It was my kids first time to watch an air show featuring different jet fighter planes  of Switzerland, Helicopters and such. 

While approaching the location, we can already  see the planes doing their choreography in the air, which was very nice and amazing ( i got goosebumps all over lol ).

We went to their last weekend show Sept.7, 2014

The Patrouille Suisse celebrates their 50th anniversary together with PC-7 team's 25th and 100 years of the Swiss' military aviation.

Beautiful colors in the air by the Al Fursan  air force aerobatic display team.

Amazing skydiver air formation.

Over all it was a breathtaking and  stunning world class Air show. Applause to all the teams.

We loved it! looking Forward to seeing the next air show Event.
