Frozen:: Danica's 1st

I'm still frozen from this frozen loveliness we did over the weekend. Teehee! For days, we've DIY-Ed those lilac and blue paper snowflakes. To match our color scheme, we made Danica's frozen cake lilac too. We had snow capped trees with those tiny twinkling lights. The centerpieces idea was to make the hydrangeas look like fluffy snow and have a few mini paper snowflakes scattered as well.



I'm taking this opportunity to thank the lovely Ms. Catherine Ebuen and her Events Embassy team for giving this project to us. The event was so seamless with her supervision. Super thanks and we do look forward to more projects with you.

Cath Kidston x Shabby Chic:: Bria's 1st

Just a day after our rustic wedding is this lovely Cath Kidston x Shabby chic birthday for little Bria. Her Sweets x Favors lounge is soooo cute! We had a picket blue wall and a floral awning. Added a garland of doilies last minute. I love how Bria's mommy was so into details. She prepared very nice loot bag boxes, paper bags, note books, and pillows that had nice shabby chic details. Believe, it's so much easier to work for clients who know their style.


After doing this loveliness, I had the chance to chat with the lovely Vanessa Lamug of I-Click Photography- the party's official photographer. She mused that most folks are afraid of approaching us for they think we are pricey. I also have apprehensions asking for quotes from suppliers or vendors who have very nice items or services. But then, if I don't ask, how would I know. Most of the time though, I'm surprised that the cost I am imagining does not even come close, to think the quality of what they are offering is just so darn worth it. And at times that the quote goes beyond my imagination, heck, of course, novelty has a price. Those done with love and with so much detail, usually are. So bottom line, we won't know unless we ask. Assuming won't get us anywhere. Yikes!


Zoning back... enjoy Little Bria's 1st birthday darlings!

American Rustic Vintage:: Heathel Loren + Geraldine Ann

As most could be snuggling in their homes, we were braving the rain in setting up a supposed to be garden wedding reception. But as the rains poured on and off, creating waves at the picturesque Paoay Lake, we decided to hold the reception at the Malacañang of the Norths lanai instead. And still I'd like to think it still came out totally lovely.


For Ej's bridal bouquet , we leaned towards a hand tied, as if just picked around the garden kind of loveliness with Orange Ecuadorean roses, tulips, a few eryngiums, million stars and those mix matched lovely foliages.

The sweethearts lounge was very simple and clean. The guests were gushing how elegantly simple it was. That was the goal. Sigh! Always has been a stickler to coherent, matched pieces and flowers.
Birdcages with lush flowers instead.
And we displayed some of their engagement photos at the sign in table.
How do you ask for gifts? In style, of course!
We were supposed to use roses to accent our ghosts chairs, but at the last minute, I felt hand tied crocosimia's was the best bet. It looks so rustic, perfect for the American Rustic Vintage look we wanted.

To HL and EJ, from our team, we are sending our most heartfelt congratulations... Working for you, is like a piece of Los Baños came closer to Ilocos. Teehee! One day, we shall come visit you there and pester you to tour us in IRRI, and oh... the food in SEARCA, Papu's, the field... Sigh! Hugs and much much love.
