Haven’t I mentioned that the Fiesta Girl also do events?
One of my favorites is the recent garden party I have designed for the Eusebio’s home. It was a Dim Sum party that evolved to a fusion themed one.
Food was ordered from New Fortune Chinese Restaurant in Gaithersburg, MD. It was my first time having Taro Dumpling and oh boy, I dreamed of it ever since.
The Fellowship: guests gather for a Dim Sum feast. We took out the Persian carpet and utilized the free space. (We just had planted fresh seedings on the ground, so this carpet helps a lot not to interrupt the growth of the grass.) I threw in Moroccan-ish cushions and Jenka brought out her Japanese floor tables too. The acoustic guitar added a touch of hippiness.
The Wishing: The celebrants asked for wishes instead of gifts. They can offer prayers at a separate serene area where they can burn silver/gold papers and light incense sticks. We filled the zen fountain with sand as incense holders.
A good mythical friend also visited the party.
Our lovely guests left with smiles on their faces and a little bit tipsy. Thanks to our bottomless champagne supply.
P.S. The people behind the event:
From the top left: Ate Emma, Jade (that’s me), Tita Tata, Jenka, Dr. Jovy (her mom), Ate Nancy, and Ate Perly (who was taking the picture). Tita Benjie wasn’t in the photo but she cooked the best pansit our Lola Pistang taught her decades ago.
