WORKSHOP: { FIRESTARTER - YEAR TWO }

--
Yey! We're very proud to be the official florist to FIRESTARTER's second year. Back when we were still starting, we've always dreamt of working with Jeff & Lisa, and it's nothing short of pure awesomeness that when it came for them to finally share their experiences and wisdom to up-and-coming photographers, we were asked to be one of the partners (and they even nicknamed our bouquet, 'Bob', ha ha! How cute!).

We're very excited to meet the second batch of talents this March 16 & 17 at the Peninsula Manila! For details, please visit HERE. See you!

BREAKING NEWS: { VELUZ GOES RTW }

Almost everyone we know who's getting married dreams of wearing a Veluz - creations that are ethereal as they are jaw-dropping. Simply beautiful. And as the long queue to her shop grows by the year, there's happy news to those who can't wait: ready-to-wear Veluz gowns! 8 to 9 specially designed gowns will initially be made available to brides the world over. She's also given them pretty names like Bithia, Bianca, Karmina, & Sophia!

Here's a preview of some of those awesome pieces. ^_^ Will post more about the collection soon!

PARTNERSHIP: { PURPLEDISH CATERING + THE MANGO FARM + VATEL MANILA }

And so it's come to pass. After just days of preparations, we finally launched our first collaboration with an exciting industry player, Purpledish Catering, run by CIA-trained Chef Velmor de Roña, last February 3 at their new home-venue, The Mango Farm.

The venue + catering package also include tablescapes by Vatel Manila, the Farm being our home court. Couples booked at the Farm will now experience the restrained elegance that have long characterized Vatel Manila reception setups. We are sure that Purpledish will be one of the more popular choices in the coming years.

Early in the day, Paul Vincent shot our two tablescapes for Inspirations, the new in-house magazine of Themes & Motifs. This issue will be out in March 2013 and will be distributed to couples who will be attending the wedding fair at the PICC Forum.

Later in the evening, we moved the two tables inside the Glass Pavilion for the sit-down, food-tasting event. We had a grand time introducing couples to our setups, Happy Summer (meant for a daytime event) and New York Penthouse (designed for nighttime receptions). We plan to make eight more tablescape concepts to accommodate all possible themes that are popular in weddings today (well, except anything related to 'vintage' or 'travel' perhaps, as these are quite common already). For those familiar with it, the black & white table was actually first designed for a magazine shoot 2 years ago at Dusit Hotel, and we are happy to finally use it for actual weddings.

Here's looking forward to more exciting times at our little patch of Eden. :-)

XOXO, Dylan
