Joel Cruz, dubbed as “The Lord of Scents” for his best-selling Aficioando Germany Perfume, recently celebrated the first birthday of his second set of twins Prince Harry and Prince Harvey in a magical Disney-themed children’s party at the Solaire Hotel and Resort Grand Ballroom.
The fabulous fete—enjoyed not only by kids but family, friends, godparents and business partners as well—kicked off with photo booths at the foyer area that carrry Winnie the Pooh, Frozen and Toy Story themes. Snacks were served as well to satisfy the sweet toothed. Kids played games and fabulous prizes were given away.
Upon enterting the ballroom, Disney characters and prince and princesses welcomed the guests. The program then started with videos of the family to introduce Joel, Prince Sean, Princess Synne and the celebrators Prince Harry and Prince Harvey. In time for dinner, a parade of waiters served the dishes to the tune of Beauty and the Beast’s “Be Our Guest” played by the symphony orchestra. The sumptuous dinner was properly paired with select wines from Spain, California and France.
The highlight of the event was the costume contest for both kids and adults with kids wearing Disney characer costumes and adults national costumes from the country of their choice. Angelo Gabriel Cruz, who came as Pinocchio, won the kids category and was given a trip to Boracay via Cebu Pacific and stay at The District Hotel. The national costume category with a prize of a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland via Philippine Airlines and a stay at the Hollywood Disney Hotel went to Ernesto Laurente who dressed as a Chinese Emperor.
As if not fantastic enough, guests were treated to a variety of giveaways such as toys for all ages and Aficionado Perfume products. Joel was so overwhelmed with the number of guests who came to enjoy the fun party. Indeed, it was truly a happy, birthday celebration.
Looking forward to another theme party which only Joel can create!!
