#ClaraOleWizardry My Magical #HarryBirthdayRuth Party: Harry Potter Themed Birthday Party
I am lucky to have people around me who trust me and the things that I do. I cannot do it all on my own. Thank you guys.
When I arrived in Lola Cafe for my #HarryBirthdayRuth party, it felt like walking in the Great Hall once again. I wanted to cry, jump and hug everyone who made it exactly how I wanted it to be.
(1) Hogwarts Four Houses Flags (2) The Happy Birthday Ruth with Harry Potter font + scar and eyeglasses (3) Table runner is pages of the book – sorry my friend had to destroy a real book for this because it is much less costly. (4) We added jelly beans, chocolate coins and kisses in the table centerpiece (5) Floating Candles!!! (6) me doing magic! (7) I initially wanted jars in the table but my friend thought of just creating cylinder lamps with my pictures taken in Harry Potter Studio in London (8) Flying Letters from Hogwarts + Nimbus 2,000 Loot with Clara Ole Products!

At the second floor washroom, we put stickers to direct guests to the Ministry of Magic and even added Moaning Mrytle. My friend was so impressed, and I told them we didn’t put anything in the washroom. Haha
When I was changing at the second floor, I was worried that muggle guests were already feeling bored and hungry. I had a quick change from my Hogwarts uniform to the black romper from Zara (Zara always saves the day!). I took less time to prepare myself for the party. I forgot my adapter to my hair iron and just realized that I even missed putting on mascara! My friend Au and Issa did my eyebrows though. Haha. I was not feeling the party celebrant because what I really wanted to do was to go down and make sure that everything is in order.
“Hello Hogwarts!” like Hello, Manila!!!
I told them they were so serious!
While our muggle friends were having snack, I took the time to answer questions from the Clara Ole Fanpage. It was an ambush interview actually and thankfully my previous work had trained me with public speaking and impromptu speeches. Haha.
Q&A with Ruth dela Cruz – Introduction
The magic lives on this week as Ruth dela Cruz handpicked 3 questions from our fans to answer and win a special prize from us! We will be revealing these winners and their questions starting tomorrow until the end of the week. Good luck and thank you to all those who participated! 🙂 #ClaraOlePotluck #ClaraOleWizardry #HarryBirthdayRuth

The Wizarding Cup!
It is all Free. The catch? He would have to use the broom! Haha 🙂
It was a fun day indeed.
It sounds too cliche but I feel truly blessed to have such wonderful friends. I thank them for the time, effort and support that they give to my party and to my adventures. If there is anything that people should envy about my life is the people around me – not the material things. My friends and the people around me trust me and the things that I do. They give me the opportunities and the best experiences of my life. I cannot do all these by myself. Thank you!!!
I love it when they all say that this is one epic and magical party. The best that they have attended. It is the most important thing for me.
Thank you blogger friends for coming!
I want to extend my love and thank you to Clara Ole for trusting me. I am not a “brand ambassador” but I am a user of the brand. I mentioned it before but I want to say it again – the most beautiful thing about blogging is when the brands that you love support you and work with you. Thank you for all the trust and support.
Thank you Mhel and Ken (Certified Foodies) for being always with me ever since I started working with brands. I love you both!
Thank you Cecille for being such a fun partner! It didn’t feel like work because of you. You lifted off all the stresses from me. Thank you and Happy Birthday to you too!!!!
Thank you Lola Cafe for allowing us to make magic in your lovely restaurant and Chef Jonvic for the amazing buffet spread! Thank you for the special menu for #HarryBirthdayRuth
Thank you Angeli for always being my Ms Bulgaria. For being always so excited about my adventures. I love you and I am forever grateful to be your friend.
Thank you Paul (Paul the PR Guy) for being my fun host that day! I know how busy you are but you dedicated your talent and time for me and to my friends. You are a great host and my mom loves your voice. Haha You will always be my Harry Potter 🙂
Thank you Rodel for covering and taking videos of one of the best moments of my life! I would have wanted you to be in that video too!!! I didn’t expect that you will do this and put it ahead of one of the most important things in your life. I am so happy to be your friend. (read his blog about #HarryBirthdayRuth here).
Thank you Joan for making magic to my party. You are the greatest, most patient and creative person I know. Thank you for supporting me on this and for being always here when I need you – kilig or drama days. Haha. I love you!
Thank you friends, family and all the people who are sharing this with me.
When I started blogging, I wanted to be an anonymous blogger. I still want to keep a part of my life private. I didn’t realize I would soon be writing about my birthday and this awesome party. Thank you. You all make me happy.
