As promised from my last post (TSM Fave Things – October), here is a more detailed blog (lots of photos!) about the last Grace Home Pre-Holiday Trunk Show held last October 11. This is my biggest trunk show to date. I have more than tripled the number of Grace Home products since I first started the brand exactly a year and a half ago (June 2015).  This event was held at the spacious and well-appointed Focus Global showroom at the Fort in BGC.  

The Focus Global group is the company that exclusively distributes the top home furniture, appliances and accessories in the market today. They represent 20 world-renowned brands. For furniture they carry the names Ethan Allen, B & B Italia, Maxalto, Tempur and Sealy. For kitchen appliances they have Subzero, Wolf, Miele, Siematic, Boffi, Insenkerator, Oster and Kitchen Aid. For Bath and Wellness meanwhile, they offer Villeroy & Boch and Dorn & Bracht. For Windows and Doors, they are the exclusive distributor of Hunter Douglas and Pella. And for recreational products they carry Coleman and DMC Creative World. So yes, our venue is indeed a design destination and the perfect place to hold our one-of-a-kind trunkshow!

Grace Home’s co-presenter is chef restaurateur Happy Ongpauco – Tiu who has a string of restaurants and businesses under her eponymous brand, Happy Concept Group. She owns and manages Pamana, Hawaiian BBQ, Bento Box, World Topps, I love Backyard BBQ, Tsokolateria and The Boutique Bed and Breakfast Hotel in Tagaytay, among many others! This Grace Home Trunk Show also formally launched her newest venture : Private Dining by Happy Concept Group which is all about her personalized and bespoke catering services.

Aside from cooking, Happy’s expertise also lies in table styling. She exhibited this other passion of hers when she designed the different tables of Ethan Allen using Grace Home’s Table Linen, Ceramic Stoneware Plates, and Bohemian Glassware

Because we wanted it to be not just your ordinary selling trunk show…we turned it into something more fun, creative and interactive!

Grace Home Manila Pre-Holliday Trunkshow Happy and I decided that she will share two of her favorite recipes : homemade Focaccia Bread and Herbed Porchetta, and demonstrate how to cook them using the WOLF oven and SUBZERO fridge and freezer available for us in the venue.
