MANILA, Philippines – Shang Plaza, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, recently featured table designs by artist Pinky Tobiano.

Simply dubbed “Pink October”, proceeds from this event will go to the I Can Serve Foundation to help with their initiatives.

Pinky presented three fabulously designed table settings that wowed event attendees, members of the diplomatic corps, guest of honor Chavit Singson, as well as shoppers attending the event.

As a breast cancer survivor, Pinky first presented the “Tickle Me Pink” table setting in every conceivable shade of color.

“For this design I used fresh, dried and artificial flowers to decorate the table top. I need to make sure the flowers will last a fortnight, well for the duration of this exhibit.”

Then there was “La Dolce Vita”, inspired by an afternoon on the Amalfi Coast. The Italian-inspired table setting has been profusely decorated in shades of yellow, radiating both brightness and warmth. This decor is reminiscent of the huge family reunions of families seen in mafia-themed movies.

And the piece de resistance is the opulently laden “Bahay Kubo” frame adorned with hand-painted plates by renowned visual artist Anita Magsaysay-Ho. The design, framed in a “walis tambo” frame, is durable and very environmentally friendly. The recyclable nature of the design pays homage to climate change efforts that have gained momentum around the world.

“The table is your canvas,” enthuses Tobiano. “The rest is limited only by the scope of your imagination. And, of course, you can top it all off with the right mindset and outfit.”
