On April 22, my daughter celebrated her 3rd birthday and we decided to give her a party at Jollibee NBS in Quezon Ave. (corner Sct. Borromeo). My daughter has grown to be so fond of Jollibee (like most other kids) and we thought that a Jollibee party will give her a memorable event.
We originally booked at Jollibee E. Rodriguez via phone two weeks ahead. However, on the day we visited the venue for confirmation and downpayment, we were left waiting for the attending party coordinator for more than 20 minutes. When we made a follow up, no one couldn’t give us a decent answer. Still, we waited and started reading some of the party brochures, until we had enough and stormed out the store.
We checked on Jollibee West Ave. and I liked their kiddie tables and chairs. Unfortunately, there was no more available slot for April 22, except 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM which is already pretty late. We made our last trip to Jollibee NBS and we were accommodated by Dennis, who happened to be the party host as well on the day of the event.
I liked Dennis, he was very lively. The Hetty room assigned to use can accommodate up to 75 people. Our initial reservation was only for 35 people, but the actual number of guests climbed to 41 on April 22. We availed of the food package 4, consisting of the following: 1-pc Chickenjoy w/rice, Jollibee spaghetti, softdrinks, chocolate sundae, and french fries. You can visit Jollibee website to plan your party – from choosing the food package to party themes and party add-ons.
The party venue’s decoration was very simple, with just a few balloons neatly decorated on the walls. The greetings tarp is pretty basic and simple, with the celebrant’s name printed on a piece of paper and attached to it. I guess if you want to have your own greeting tarp made, you’re allowed to have it posted somewhere on the venue, too.
We chose the JOLLITOWN theme and the party fee of P1,250 already included 1 Jollibee mascot appearance, 20 game prizes, 30 party balloons, 10 crayons, and a guestbook. If you want to add another Jollibee mascot, be prepared for additional fee of P1,000 (per mascot). We added Popo and Hetty because my daughter is just so into them. Jollibee mascot/s appear 30 minutes before end of the party. If you want them to join in the games, you’ll need to pay P300/mascot for the appearance. My husband and I knew our daughter would be ecstatic to have them so we decided to pay for the additional appearance.
As expected, Jollibee food is for the kids and kids-at-heart. The Chickenjoy remained a standout. Most of all, the mascots are such a darling for the kids. I was a bit disappointed with the dance choreography of the mascots though. I was expecting they’d dance into the tune of a more popular music (like what I’ve seen on some youtube videos). I couldn’t remember the music they were dancing on but I think it’s still related to a Jollitown song.
When it comes to booking, we had not problem booking at Jollibee NBS. I guess the only minor hassle (minor for me but not for my husband) was when Dennis (party host) had errors in the computation of the remaining balance, so we ended up going back to the venue a week after to settle the Jollibee loot bags we availed that wasn’t included in the final computation. But overall, it was a good party for the kids, and I know the adults enjoyed it, too!
