In January, I look forward to New Year when I set out to the Universe my intentions for the year.

In February, I prepare for Chinese New Year because I miss doing a lot of the New Year’s rituals in January. This is the month when I double time in my clean up, discarding everything old and useless.

In March I look forward to my family’s many milestones and celebrations. I call this time the Merry Month of March. Birthdays of my sister, Malou, and my brother, Ed, nieces Pat and Abby, daughter of Pat (my apo, but shhhh!), Chelsea. March is also my parents’ and my own wedding anniversary, and…and…and…

My Forever Fifty Birthday

Now tell me, is this not a merry month?

I do not celebrate my birthdays with parties, Nothing as grand as what I organize for other people. I hear Holy Mass, prepare a special meal for #myking and #zaldivarboys, or dine out. I usually work on my birthdays. I have had weddings, birthdays, and have had marathon meetings scheduled. I do not mind.

A few days ago, I had been thinking…what if I plan a really spectacular party for myself? I share with you my thoughts:

I always find joy in anything and I am positive that my invited friends and families will give it their best with lots of joy to follow my dress code. 

Here’s another one:

Invitation in watercolor for Merry Month of March

I will have to ask someone to make me an original, then put my own text. I love creating my own, even with my clients’ invites, I throw in a suggestion that is not found in catalogs of invitation makers. All the time, my suggestions for the wordings are taken. Must be the poet in me!

Flamingo for Merry Month of March

Fashion and fashion accessories for flamingo theme

Come in any way you like, but carry your flamingo fashion, in any size and manner. 

Are you feeling the fun already?

Wait…here’s more…

Bangs Zaldivar dream theme

Merry Month of May Photo Wall

Make sure your phones are fully charged because I know you’ll be having selfies and groufies a lot here. Bring your own camera. Bring your own photographer.

Own photographer??? Yeah. seriously. I brought my own photographer to several occasions and they were the most enjoyable events because all I needed to do was smile!

Pinata, you ask me. At an adult’s parteeeeh?


I’m sure my flamingo inspired stuff will make you wish you are the tallest to assure you of a piece. Think flamingo pink lipstick shade, flamingo printed necktie, flamingo candies,flamingo earrings, etc.


FLAMINGO GARDENThis is how my cocktail reception will look like.

Don’t you find them adorable?

If you come earliest, you get the chance to own one of these flamingoes, and it means that you may bring them home AFTER the party.

These are just two of my current favorite ideas. Now, all I need to have is time to make me a party.

I will need time in between my event planning, side by side with my wife duties and mom chores, and time on top of my civic projects and entrepreneurial start-up. I need time. I will set aside the time it needs, of course, because I deserve the best party and my guests deserve it too.

This plan is late for March 6, 2017.

This plan is perfect for March 6, 2018.

Whoever leaves a comment down there will be invited. Seriously. So comment now, then prepare your Flamingo Fashion or Creative Tuxedos and see you in a year. 


In Gratitude,



PS – Pinterest is addicting. Pinterest is love. Pinterest is the main reason why I have all these visuals. Of course I also got inspirations from other sites. WE really must all take the extra effort to search for inspirations and then think, think think, and expand it or narrow it until we create that thing that makes us smile and get us excited.
