EXCLUSIVE: Olivia Manzano Reyes Celebrated Her 4th Birthday With A Disney Princess-Themed Party
Belle, Pocahontas, Ariel, and Elsa all showed up princess squad-style to serenade social media darling Olivia Reyes at her Disney Princess-themed 4th birthday party at ActiveFun in BGC over the weekend.
Who is Olivia's favorite princess? According to her beautiful radio DJ, vlogger, and influencer mom, Andi Manzano-Reyes, Olivia loves all the Disney princesses equally. “I’m Aurora!” declared Olivia as she sat nearby her cakes to pose for photos. With an elated look on her face, she gazed in awe at her Disney Princess friends who were surrounding her and giving her the royal treatment she deserves.
Andi collaborated with her sister Bella Manzano and Caryll Cabuhat to plan and coordinate Olivia’s party. They chose a refreshing color motif of light pink, light blue, gold, peach, light yellow, and light orange, to complement the fairy tale vision for the occasion. The event space was filled with kid-sized tables decorated with glittery gold table runners and pops of pink and purple balloon art. The walls were dressed up with vibrant paper wheels that made for a girly and playful backdrop for all the unforgettable moments during the event. Olivia’s guests were greeted at their tables with Disney coloring books and crayons that kept the children entertained while the rest of the guests arrived.
GP Reyes, Olivia’s father and co-owner of Xylo, Palace, and Tides Boracay among many other business ventures, was in full dad mode during the party; as Andi greeted and mingled with the guests, GP held onto 2-month-old daughter Amelia while making sure his princess, the birthday girl, was having fun as well. GP knelt down beside Olivia before the party began, to help her with her Disney coloring book, and slid down the giant blue slide at ActiveFun—what a hands-on and fun dad!
No party is complete without something sweet and Olivia had not one but three birthday cakes inspired by Disney characters, including a 2-tier Rapunzel cake with a crown, 1-tier Elsa white chocolate drip cake adorned with sparkly edible snowflakes, and a 3-tier Belle cake complete with sugar roses and a faux-tree bark cake stand made of fondant. The cake spread was created by Naked Patisserie, and featured flavors like French vanilla with buttercream, lemon with lemon-infused buttercream, and chocolate with chocolate ganache.
While the performers from Madison Events Inc. sang "Beauty and the Beast," Belle danced with Olivia, putting the spotlight on the charming little girl who was marking a milestone in her life. Toward the end of the party, Olivia sat down and happily handed out Disney princess goodie bags to her friends.
As the day came to a close, it was apparent how much Olivia enjoyed her party. Thanks to her parents Andi and GP, she got to celebrate her 4th birthday with lots of fun memories she will cherish forever.
