Max’s Restaurant has been in the food business for so long that up to today’s generation the brand has evolved and continues to grow to keep up with the changing times. Filipino tradition seeks the value for money and quality of food and service when looking for a worry-free special events. So when my child was about to celebrate her 7th birthday, we trimmed down our venue choice from Shakey’s, Goldilock’s Cake City to Max’s Restaurant. Because the latter is proximity-friendly for us and the majority of the guests. The venue at Commonwealth branch recently open last 3rd Quarter of 2013. It was a major attraction for us: it’s a few blocks from the house, the venue is newly constructed, the function room I choose had an overlooking view of greens, the interiors/ambiance are fresh and new. The staff from Max’s Restaurant Commonwealth were the same guys from Max’s Ever Gotesco Mall. They’ve ended the contract and decided to build a new stand alone restaurant because the management of the mall is not open for Max’s plans to change the interiors and have it overhauled. It’s good that they pushed through, because the new home has ample parking space and good ambiance.

We chose Princess Palace for Drei’s party theme in conjunction with my Alice in Wonderland theme. To execute some of my party ideas and put within Max’s Princess Palace. I paid for an extra charge for Corkage Fees of Php500 for my Candy Buffet Dessert Bar and Php300 for my DIY Photo Booth corner (technically the 300 bill was for the electricity consumption). To get the full vibe, upon guest arrival we played from iTunes Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland Soundtrack. And tag along my close friends in the blogosphere as an impromptu host (for ALice in Wonderland games) and add extra flare to Drei’s party, teacher Ia (Special Education PH) and Millete (Reluctant Passage) for the opening prayers and she’d helped me with installing my party buntings and candy buffet display. I guided my generous buddies to spontaneously host and be creative with the flow. I have made themed party prizes and activities aside from Max’s allotted loot bags and extra prizes. To Ia and Millete thank you girls for the extra hand. 🙂

When I was setting up the venue, the celebrant says “Mommy why Happy Birthday Daryll?” which I was ignoring. Funny how Max’s can make you wink! 🙂

Birthday chocolate cake baked by Max’s Corner Bakery (the tragic here, it was named after me!) 😛 To Drei, I did a lot of explaining why it has to happened. They thought Drei’s fullname was Daryll – so much for “maling akala.” As takeaway, Max’s party coordinator gave us white icings (for take home) to add Drei’s name in which the purpose made it even funnier – the melted icings  just won’t work believed me.

Max’s Restaurant function room is adorably decorated with themed balloons, balloon buntings and kid’s party area. This room in Max’s Commonwealth can seat up to 80 guests and can extend up capacity of 100 guests.

Candy Buffest Dessert Bar for kids is a hit even among adults!

The venue set up Princess Palace party theme used pastel colors of pink and purple. Since I am working on a blue and red theme, I personally request to change the balloon decors. Max’s host the event in a clown costume and a magician. A magic show and mascot appearance went after the food was served. You can avail the mascot for free when your bill reaches 15K and above. Again to remind me of stress brought about by planning a party on Christmas season, do away with party before weeks before Christmas. Drei’s birthday falls on the 31st but we decided to celebrate it earlier for her classmates and friends. But realistically all sorts of parties, get together and reunions are scheduled at the same time making it difficult for the invitees to juggle which party to attend plus the heavy traffic (when I mean heavy, it doesn’t move at all) some guests arrived from a 2 hour ride within Metro Manila which is dramatically exhausting. But the party ends well and will cherished every moment from it. “Happy birthday Drei!”
