No One Throws a Party Quite Like Tim Yap

  • October 16, 2018

The scene was at Manila House. Orchestrated by Tim Yap’s Yaparrazi Events+PR for the release of actress KC Concepcion’s jewelry line Avec Moi by Kristina, the room resembled less of Manila House’s whimsical clutter, and more a full-on glamorous space. White curtains in gauze and rose petals beckoned at the outside, as if to welcome guests to a whole new world.

Inside, eyes were drawn to the showstopping tablescape. The combination of roses and moss offered an interesting juxtaposition; a visual feast for the eyes. Located at strategic points were selections of Avec Moi’s jewelry offerings. The room was bathed in a warm, red glow, with chandeliers offering light amongst threaded petals.

All around, guests chatted. The mix of close friends, family, celebrities and media guests was a winning combination. The food was, as expected, a wondrous delight. The hamachi aburi, served with beet, citrus and cilantro dressing was fresh and flavorful. As with any Tim Yap-designed affair, the cocktails were of the highest quality.

In the May 2017 issue of Lifestyle Asia, Tim called himself “the pioneer eventologist, because I invented the term and defined what it does.” From beginning to end, this event was proof of that.
