It has been a very eventful and exciting year indeed so as the end of 2016 draws to a close, Philippine Tatler Homes recently launched it’s latest Luxe Living issue through a festive holiday brunch with 65 lovey ladies at the well-appointed Proscenium showroom at 8 Rockwell.

 Dressed to the nines in their holiday-themed best the guests donned vibrant reds and greens as well as blues, white and silver, which coloured the space with merry spirit. A glorious spread, prepared by Chef Gilbert Pangilinan of Kai Restaurant, was enjoyed by all as they sipped Moët & Chandon rosé throughout the languorous affair. Chef Pangilinan pulled out all the stops and pre-Christmas diets flew out the window as the ladies tucked into Adobo paella, Eggs Benedict, a beautiful turkey with all the trimmings and pretty sushi confections. The luscious red velvet and salted caramel cakes were also huge hits and beckoned for guilty seconds.

Philippine Tatler Homes Editor at Large, Mia Borromeo, was joined by Managing Director, Irene Martel Francisco, and General Manager of Sales, Lynne Palma to announce some very lucky winners of special raffle prizes. Up for grabs were Jo Malone candles and home fragrances, items from the Yachting collection of Hermès and a romantic dinner for two  at the Peninsula Manila’s Old Manila. Two lucky ladies won a night’s stay at the Aruga serviced suites in Rockwell.
