A double birthday affair at the Atillos

The Atillos’ lovely home is the go-to venue of past parties and reunions. And thus, familiar radiant faces gathered once again like a blast from the recent past for the double birthday celebration of two accomplished individuals, the happily retired man-of-the-house Boboy Atillo and popular architect Tessie Javier.

Having just celebrated their golden wedding anniversary, Boboy and his accomplished pianist wife, Irma, once again graciously welcomed dear family and close friends to their stately abode, where guests, as soon as they stepped in, were handed a bubbly and joined the ongoing merrymaking.

The intimate affair was likewise a thanksgiving for all the wonderful blessings that have come their way through the years.

Trays of pica pica were masterfully prepared by Cebu’s foremost provisioner Café Laguna. The spread included mature and nutty flavored cheeses, jamon Iberico, a variety of ingenious spreads and innovative dips, melba toasts and an assortment of breads and biscuits.
