|This was the type of "regular" baptism where there were supposed to have other babies to be baptized at the same time. Luckily, we were the only one scheduled for that day. :)|

Colored Booklet for ninong and ninang: Php 35 each.
Our reception was held in Big Plate right beside Caltex along President's Avenue, BF Homes, Paranaque. I like this place because it's quite spacious and Ms. Jops from Big Plate was very easy to talk to. I would probably consider getting this place again when we have another occasion.

I added a few hundred pesos for the brownies to be added in their dessert section.
Their buko pandan was also a crowd favorite especially for the kids, but unfortunately I wasn't able to take a pic of it. I was too hungry already...
|Souvenirs (Php 28)|
Thanks to Neko Yume Souvenir Shop for this lovely angel souvenir. They are also from Paranaque so the souvenirs were picked up at Shopwise. I was able to save shipping fees. I ordered 35 pieces.

|Cakes for sale. |
My personal favorites are their banana cream pie and carrot cake.
Whole cakes are Php 799 and cake slices are Php 78.
|Other pastries. |
Their pastries are 10% off on 7 pm onwards if i'm not mistaken.
So for 50 guests, I was able to spend almost Php 16,500 for the food and venue. All in all, I spent less than Php 20,000 if I were to add everything I spent from clothes to souvenirs.
Big Plate's reception venue is actually on the second floor, but I insisted that the party to be held on the first floor because it's spacious and I like the chairs. They were kind enough to accommodate my request.
I personally recommend Big Plate for receptions especially if you're on a budget. They serve good food and good service for a reasonably good price! :)
