For Rajo Laurel's 40th birthday, he wanted everything and everyone in PINK. It's his favorite color and I think the color itself speaks entirely of his character. He is light, bubbly, fun, easy and sweet.
The set up was so adorable!! Pink balloons filled the stage. The whole place was styled by Bambi Jimenez and Trish Panililio. Rajo's favorite band, MULATTO was playing the songs of our era. I mean, their era. My era is Justin Bieber and Jonas Brother's. (BWA HA HA). SAGA took care of the event
Last night, at OPUS, the Dizon sisters were there to celebrate with him the REAL beginning of life. As they say, 40 is when real life starts and last night's celebration was really a great way to jumpstart it.
So, PINK it was. I had a bit of a problem with something pink because I am not that skinny and I imagine looking a bit chunky on photos if I wear the color. So instead, I wore a silver gray dress, pink coral earrings with lavender jade, pink lipstick, pink morganite in rose gold ring and pink shoes.
SONJA prepared pink cupckaes which is laid out sweetly on a very well set up table.
It was a star studded affair with celebrities and socialites all clad in pink were there to show Rajo some love but no one was more VVVVIP than Rajo's 92 year old Grandma, Beatriz Castillo Laurel. She rocked the house with her mere presence. I can't really confirm but I think that she might have even stayed longer than the Dizon sisters who are the REAL LOLAs in the house.
The pinkest cake I have ever seen made by SONJA.
Tessa was the welcomer of the guests but she was a tad bit late so the sisters asked me if I could welcome everyone, say a few things and give a toast to the birthday boy!! I gladly did it because minsan, kulang ako sa pansin and that was a good way to get some attention. (BWA HA HA!) Kidding aside, anything for Rajo. Besides, I was next choice after Tessa Valdes? O diba? Level up na naman si Candifier!
After the cake blowing, the nieces of RL sang for the crowd. This family is talented in so many ways because they sang very well.
And then Tessa arrives and steals the entire show in a fun and costume-y way. This woman will never fail to amaze us with her bubbly and fun character. Love her to bits.
Your bloggerina with TPV.
