Hello, hello! Welcome to Greta’s Junkyard, a lifestyle blog I started back in 2013. My name is Gretchen Gatan Fragada. And I’m a writer and editor based in Quezon City. I’m also a wife to Cayo, a first-time mom to a toddler daughter named Cambria, and a fur mom to a Shih Tzu named Booboo and a Persian named Bellatrix! Recently, Booboo celebrated his 13th birthday. So to celebrate the special milestone, I threw him yet another doggie birthday party and ordered delicious party trays from Verleo Catering. If you’ve been following me for a while now, you’ll know that I always put together birthday parties for Booboo. After all, he’s my first baby!
Booboo’s Birthday Theme: Welcome to the Black Paw-rade!
If you’re a millennial like me, chances are you’re familiar with emo music. I grew up listening to a lot of emo bands — especially when I entered my teenage years. It’s actually why Cambria is named the way she is! Because Cayo and I share the same love for the band Coheed and Cambria. And I felt that it was fitting to throw an emo-themed lunch party for Booboo since he turned 13! Hahaha. If you want to see his other birthday party themes, here are some dog party ideas! Or you can check out the hashtag #BoobooFraggyBirthday on Instagram.
As usual, we invited his closest friends: my sister Giana’s dog Motchi, and my cousin Pauline’s dog Sookie. We were missing two others: my other cousin Nikki’s dogs, Fatty (Booboo’s daughter), and Leo, since Nikki had fashion classes that day. Aside from the dogs, the hoomans (aka my relatives) were in attendance. And we were all able to enjoy good food from Verleo Catering!
Verleo Catering Never Disappoints!
Verleo Catering seamlessly blends innovation and tradition to create an unparalleled dining experience. With a commitment to culinary excellence, they have become synonymous with exquisite flavors, impeccable service, and an unwavering dedication to exceeding expectations. Whether orchestrating an intimate gathering or a grand celebration, Verleo Catering transforms events into memorable occasions. And this is all thanks to its diverse menu offerings and meticulous attention to detail.
It’s actually why many moms, my friends included, often book them to cater their children’s birthday parties! As for me, I always order from their online site, Verleo Food Trays, whenever I host intimate events at home, also known as the #FraggyHome.
For Booboo’s 13th birthday, I chose their best-sellers: Truffle Mushroom Pasta, Boneless Chicken Barbecue, Inihaw na Liempo, Roast Beef with Mushroom, and Broccoli with Two Kinds of Mushrooms. My whole family could not stop gushing over how delicious everything was! And because their party trays are so generous, we ended up having leftovers for dinner.
If you’re ever looking for a catering service or a place to order party trays from, I wholeheartedly recommend Verleo Catering. Their team not only delivers an exquisite gastronomic experience but also ensures that every event, big or small, becomes a memorable occasion.
