Auntie Babie & Uncle Frank’s 29th Anniversary at Whitespace, Catering by Cibo di M ♥ ♥ ♥




And Frances is at it again, planning all-out surprise dinners for family occasions. And this occasion is a very special one because it is her mom and dad’s wedding anniversary.

Twenty nine years.

Whew. Can you imagine being with a person for that loooooooooooooooong?

Dearest Auntie Babie and Uncle Frank, you are truly an inspiration to all of us. Smile

I love the little details Frances thinks of, like filling up this coffee table with photos of 
Uncle Frank and Auntie Babie from the 70’s to the present


Pretty place cards (and isn’t that a pretty name!) Smile with tongue out


Of course, special place cards for the guests of honor

Personalized guestbook for everyone to fill up


Wedding cake with beautiful roses


And this colorful display of pasta… belongs to Whitespace. Hehe.


The theme tonight is flowers. All the ladies are asked to come in pretty, flowery dresses. Because, according to Frances, love is like a garden. Naks!

I have always loved restaurants by Margarita Fores. Lusso and Cibo are my favorite mall eats. So it is really no surprise how brilliant dinner is. Save for the chicken which is just a bit dry (but still very tasty), each course deserves a standing ovation. 

Margarita Fores, I love you! ♥


Risotto Balls with Mushroom


Salmon Tartare with Lemon Vinaigrette


Artichoke Dip – this is so good I finished a whole bowl


Bread with Olive Oil and Fresh Garlic


Cream of Summer Squash Soup, Rye Shards


Insalata “Al Sole” - Field Greens and Cress, Walnuts, Sagada Orange, Citrus-White Wine Vinaigrette


Spinach Raviolo, Gamberi, Calamari, Crabmeat, Pink Tomato Cream, Leek Hay –
look how generous they are with the filling!


Baked Chicken Breast, Walnut Crust, Gorgonzola-Provolone Melt, Tomato and Basil Passato


Valrhona Chocolate Torta, Cebu Mangoes, Cerveza Negra Mousseline


Free-flowing drinks


Even the iced tea deserves a standing ovation!


Coffee and tea. (I’m a coffee girl)


The Soriano sisters prepare for their parents an enjoyable photo slideshow.
They drank Mountain Dew then.


They drink red wine now.
Wedding anniversary toast. Wine symbolizes joy, intoxication and fertility (uuuyyy!!!) Winking smile


Cake-cutting. The very first task in a couple’s life together.


Cake-feeding. A symbol of their mutual commitment to share and provide for each other.


The Soriano triplets and their parents. Great job, girls!


Souvenirs are floral-scented soaps Frances ordered from Australia. Mine’s lavender.


Mom likes her souvenir, too. (Yes, she took the centerpiece home!)


Fatterside Thorns and Roses
