The Disney movie, Encanto, has been all the rage among Filipino families since it came out in November 2021 and many Filipino kids immediately became fans of the movie. Carrah, daughter of Christine “Tin” Gianan, is one of them.

With Carrah’s sixth birthday coming up, Gianan decided to throw her an Encanto-themed birthday party with the whole family dressing up as the characters in the movie.

Before her daughter’s birthday, Gianan had been self-isolating due to testing positive for Covid-19. According to a Smart Parenting article, Gianan and her family had watched the movie back in December and they ended up liking it, especially her daughter, Carrah.

While recovering in isolation, Gianan would hear her daughter repeatedly watching the movie and singing the songs.

At the same time, she was also thinking about party themes for her daughter’s upcoming birthday. She thought it was fitting for the party to be Encanto-themed since her daughter loved it.
