Well, dilemma on the venue for a few months before I decided on The Chevrons. I paid $150 and held it on my exact date, 5 November 2015, Thursday. (Non-peak)
It’s best if you are a Chevrons Member, apparently only SAF Sergeants and above can get it only.
This is my invitation card made by myself on Photoshop. I initially wanted a rainbow theme, but then I changed it to the Nautical theme instead. A rainbow theme is just colourful and doesn’t looks like have any theme at all, haha. Good thing about The Chevrons is you have a big pool just outside the room! There will not be a lot of people there swimming anyway and you got yourself a private pool (nearly).
I have many people to thanks!! First, My mum for sponsoring my expenses for the Chalet, Pizzas, Decorations etc. And most of it all is making so much delicious food for my guests!! We ordered Sarpino’s pizza and it is really cheap. They have this $35 for Two 14″ Classic Pizzas and Delivery is free if charged to a DBS/POSB card, total $108.50 for six pizzas. (Not sure when the promotion ends) We also ordered 40 pcs of KFC from their delivery website for around $92.
Next, for my dear Hubby who is my Personal Chauffeur for the day! Not forgetting his parents for the car and the red packet! XD
He drove me to collect my cake desserts from Swissbake party packs (60 pcs of small cakes for $67) and my birthday cake from Cupplets. The cake is 8″ and costs me $145. Sigh.. why are customised cake so expensive.
Thanks to three of my friends, Ee Ling, Ying Wei and Kwang Hui for coming down earlier to help decorate!
The Swissbake cakes are on the cardboard cake stands. They bought the seashells from The Art Friend. Got some of the small umbrella decorations from Spotlights.
The blue and turquoise swirl paper straws from The Paper Market. 15 Latex no helium balloons and the golden number balloons of number 2 and 1 from Give Fun.
I made the scrapbook/ Guest Book myself. (I always like to do scrapbooks so I have a stash of materials at home) (Bought a few more from Popular.)
As you can see, I didn’t spend much with a budget chalet instead of a hotel and most of the things are D-I-Y-ed!! The cake is most probably the most expensive.
I made the Happy Birthday banner myself using Thickers and some papers and string bought from Daiso.
Thanks Ee Ling and Ying Wei for making the net for me!! They are so pretty!! They watched YouTube tutorials and learnt how to make it. I think they want to put it up on Carousell for rental haha.
JC Friends gather!! And smile!! So glad they are here even though a few of them cannot make it due to exam period. Too bad that my birthday is near their exams.
Hubby drove me to Jurong Point to get those floating helium balloons from the ArtBox.

Posing with the cake. The tablecloth we bought from NTUC Xtra is just so matching that you don’t realise the table below is actually a Mahjong table.
