Hello Kitty Picnic 1st Birthday (October 9, 2010)
MEOW! The classic red and blue Hello Kitty was the theme for baby girl Olivia’s 1st birthday. Her mom picked that theme since she said Olivia looked like Hello Kitty whenever she would smile, and I had to agree with her after meeting the sweet angel! The old-school illustrations of this popular Sanrio character were refreshing to see again, especially nowadays when Hello Kitty seems to...

A Romantic Pink and Green Baptism (September 11,...
Highlights from another one of my earlier baptisms for a client who happened to be my neighbor. One of the sweetest and most kalog moms ever! Bright pinks, greens, and lush brocade linens set the tone — plus, you’ll meet my vintage feathered friend (who I lovingly call “SANDY”) in one of her earliest party appearances! The baby’s name was Rafa, and here’s her...
Rajo's Pink Birthday Party @ Opus (May 19, 2011)
Having known Rajo for quite some time now from the many events that we’ve done together when I used to work for SAGA EVENTS, I was so flattered when he asked me to create a dessert table for him for his big 40th birthday. It’s extra challenging when you’re designing for a person who’s so immersed in art and beauty, even more so when it’s someone like Rajo who has the...
FOR ME Shoot (April 6, 2011)
I love working with my “chimps”, stylist Charmaine Palermo as a production designer for her shoots :) It never seems like we’re working whenever we’re together. The clothes from the brand FOR ME for their seasonal campaign dubbed as “The Charmed Life” were ultra-girly and feminine, and they needed a set design that enhanced that look and feel — sort of...

Vintage Baby Baptism (July 10, 2010)
Surprisingly, baptism celebrations take up 70% of my event styling accounts. And my very first one was for stylish mom, Amina Aranaz-Alunan’s baby boy. She wanted a whole “vintage” feel to the setup, with muted shades of blue and beige to achieve a soft but not overly frilly look. In my design process, I find it very helpful to create a mood board of the setup. It is usually...
PROJECT: Bitty Booties
I once attempted to sew 40 baby bootie souvenirs by hand. YES. BY HAND. My friends didn’t see or hear from me for a week. And by the 10th piece, number 40 seemed like an eternity away. This project is happily filed under the “Napakamot Nalang Ako Sa Ulo” Folder, and something which will probably be ONLY attempted again for my own babies. But I did learn lessons from that...
Sex and the City Themed Baby Shower & Bridal...
I’m backtracking my posts chronologically since my business officially started last year, so please bear with me :) I’m pretty OC about updating my business Facebook account, and I know it will take time for me to completely transfer photos from there to here. Anyway, before I made this passion of mine into a business, I never really did get paid to decorate for my...
