TOP PICK presents Own Christmas! A pre-holiday blogger's workshop.


This post has been in my draft for weeks na. The gathering happened last November 25, 2015 at Green Sun. Here's a photo blog entry.
I was just a proxy for  a fellow blogger Ate Lani.
We were treated to a buffet dinner by Green Sun chef.
Mister Archie Zapanta was the host that night.
Miss Elna De Guzman of Top Pick Advertising welcomed us.

Miss Tracy de Las Llagas for the gift wrapping techniques workshop.
Christmas gift wrapping by Miss Tracy and fellow blogger.
Basically you need:
- Gift wrapper (e.g cellophane and printed paper wrappers)
- Scotch tape
- Bow
- Wire

I wish there was a videographer during the demo. Although Miss Tracy was demonstrating it with explanations. But viewing it on a screen would be better.
Some techniques shared were tightening of ribbon to make it more artsy, adding ornaments, adding small christmas ball as a centerpiece of the tie, volumizing a wrapper of the cellophane..

I also learned that the sinamay of a bouquet of flowers can be used. So ladies when you received one keep the sinamay fabric.


Christmas party won't be complete without raffles.

First raffle up! Goldilocks packages.
Won.
A cooking demo was showed by EL REAL Pasta. There was an AVP. Of course! Everyone knows the kiddie endorser of EL REAL.
