Philippine Tatler HOMES and Living Innovations partnered to celebrate the festive season and the launch of Philippine Tatler HOMES’ year-end Luxe Issue with a special Holiday Brunch. Graciously welcoming guests was Living Innovations’ dynamic Ferdie Ong along with Philippine Tatler's Managing Director Irene Martel Francisco and Editor-at-Large Mia Borromeo.

The beautiful showroom of Minotti in BGC was all abuzz as 30 fashionable ladies mingled in the impressive space that highlighted stunning contemporary furniture pieces from Minotti's 70th anniversary collection. 

Guests at the intimate event feasted on a magnificent brunch spread whipped up by the popular chef Florabel Co-Yatco—everyone was raving about the fresh porcini pasta in white truffle cream sauce, eggs benedict, wagyu beef skewers, and roast turkey complemented by a delicious sweet potato casserole with pecan oatmeal crumble and other special trimmings.  Over coffee, bubbly, and sweets, an exciting raffle hosted by Ferdie and Mia gave away an array of delightful prizes: a Hurricane vase by Ro, home accessories from Brooklyn-born design brand West Elm. For gourmet lovers were festive baskets from artisanal home-grown chocolate brand, Auro and Nespresso coffee sets featuring special coffee flavors from the Master Coffee Range and Limited Edition Collection, along with Nespresso cappuccino cups. From Rustan's were an amber Balm candle from Diptyque’s holiday 2018 collection, scented candles from Millefiori, a picture frame from Natori Home and a decorative porcelain plate by Rosenthal which went to lucky lady Ana de Ocampo. Junie Peña won a stylish bar tray from Brooklyn-bien design brand West Elm. The raffle drew to a close with luxury fragrances as well as a beautiful silk scarf from Hermès won by the lovely Zelda Kienle.
