One Fine Evening

-

ONE OF THE INDUSTRY leaders in brand building and publicity, veteran publicist Susan Joven marks another grand milestone as she celebrates her birthday with family and closest friends. Her youthful energy and fun-loving spirit, topped with her iconic fashion sense, are just few of the things that draw in even the bigwigs of the country whom she has forged lasting relationsh­ips with throughout the years. The party was held in the residence of Philip and Ching Cruz, which made for the perfect scene to this special celebratio­n. Guests enjoyed the breeze at the outdoor patio where garlands and lights glistened in the backdrop as they refreshed with cocktails and appetizers. Half way through the evening’s affairs, friends and family were led to the allwhite dining room—which was decked with towering and vibrant bouquets of flowers complete with glowing lights from the crystal chandelier­s—where New York-based Filipino chef Noel Dela Rama prepared a delectable and divine spread. Making the celebratio­n more meaningful, Susan’s only daughter, Ginggay dela Merced, together with some of her dearest and closest friends, gifted the celebrant touching words and greetings which filled the room with laughter and grateful hearts. The night continued with a surprise song performanc­e by Cris Villonco made even more heartwarmi­ng with a dance with her grandson Noey.
