We have to talk about the grand floral tunnel entrance, the table arrangement, the sky-high cake, her Michael Cinco gown and the oh-so-amazeballs Video Booth.
All roads led to Peninsula Manila on Friday night as Presidential granddaughter Isabelle Lovelie Duterte celebrated her eighteenth birthday party in the most extravagant way. The Bellessima18 had been a celebration of life and love with their family and relatives, who flew to Manila all the way from Davao City.
If you think the pre-debut pictorials in Malacanang and New South Wales were the ultimate ‘pasabog’, then you’re wrong. Here’s everything that went down at Isabelle’s lavish debut party:
1. Isabelle wore an ombre blue, cobalt Michael Cinco dress as her main outfit.
According to Michael Cinco himself, the gown came all the way from Dubai. The bongga gown was studded with full degrade Swarovski crystals. Wow!
2. The tunnel floral arrangement is the bomb!
Isabelle’s preferred color, pastel hues, were the main theme for the arrangement. The table arrangement, similar to Vicky Belo’s wedding in Paris, features an elegant high reaching floral decors and European style of table setting.
Isabelle likes it pastels so we created a room full of white and blush using Dainty centerpieces, candelabras and an elaborate Ceiling Design using #AllFresh Flowers and Foliage with candelabras and other installations. The Tables were mirrored and clear with gold beaded showplates and clear Transparent Chairs. #RobertBlancaflorGroup #EventStylingPH #DebutsPH with #RNEPEvents @forscink_socials @rnepevents #BELLEssima18
3. The event became a mini reunion for her maternal relatives.
Isabelle’s mom hails from an influential Tausug clan, and her debut party was mostly attended by the Sumera-Sangkola’s.
4. There was a Video Booth that allows guests to record their own mini-video clips.
Move over, photo booths. Check out Hello and Co. Cinema’s sample videos from the event.
5. Lastly, you have to see her cake.
The pink and white sky-high cake was decorated with flowers and dainty crystals.
Before the closing of the grand debut, Isabelle also performed for her guests. She did a short modern dance number while clad in an all while suit and pants and a 4-inch Jefferson Si heels.
One word: BONGGA!
