United Bloggers Philippines Celebrates Thanksgiving Party With a Gatsby Theme
Starting this year with a Thanksgiving party is a grand way to welcome 2018. Held at Romulo Cafe in Makati, the United Bloggers Philippines members donned outfits from the 1920’s. Gatsby was the theme.
Everyone looked glamorous! From the shoes up to headdress, it appeared that much preparation was done to achieve that Gatsby look.
The venue fits the theme of the party as the place looked sophisticated and walls were adorned with photographs of Carlos P. Romulo, his family and politicians from the early 1900s. It’s almost like we were traveling back in time! The food is as premium as the place. It was also the first time I had Ginisang Monggo and Sinigang in a party and it was damn good which reminds me of my mom’s cooking. The same goes to Lechon Kawali, just mouth-watering.
We had such a blast watching contestants from the costume contest. A special prize was given to the best dressed and the couple bloggers Anne and Maiko deserved to win considering that aside from looking awesome and being head turners, they also projected perfectly on the the catwalk.
It was an excellent chance to catch up with everybody. We absolutely enjoyed the activities prepared such as the rock-paper-and-scissors game where a Twenty peso bet was required for each player, meanwhile Meron o Wala revealed secrets that we were not ready to hear and my favorite of course is the raffle.
The event was made possible by the sponsors: Romulo cafe, Adae’s Kitchen, Allianz PNB, Eggshell, Herbalife PH, Lola Deling’s Traditions, Restaurant Depot, Shakedown Street Cafe and Tanduay PH.
