This Game Of Thrones-Themed Debut Took Its Guests On A Journey To The Kingdom Beyond The Wall
Nothing is impossible for Christine-Ong Te Events.
We're on the edge of our seats, counting the days till the premiere of the Final Season of Game of Thrones. The journey of the mythological show, which we've been hooked on since 2011, has made millions of people all over the world dream of living in at least one of the nine Kingdoms of Westeros.
While we imagine ourselves as the Queen of the Iron Throne, this debutant, Kimberly Anne Go, got her wish exactly, and celebrated her 18th birthday with a Game of Thrones-themed party.
As a big fan of the well-known series, she made sure to work with the best suppliers to recreate the overall setting of the GOT kingdoms in Conrad Manila. “It all started with COTE (Christine Ong-Te Events) who my family trusts to plan our events," she says. As one of the industry leaders, Christine and her team were able to execute Kimberly's vision, with a setting that mainly focused on creating a journey towards the kingdom beyond the wall.
Upon entering the lavish venue styled by Gideon Hermosa, a registration area inspired by the High Garden was set up. From there, guests proceeded to the entrance to reach King’s Landing. After lots of picture-taking against a gigantic map, posing as the iconic queen Cersei Lannister, their next stop was the cocktail area which was dressed up as the Throne Room in Dragonstone, where they also found the Wall of Faces.

For the dining hall setting, they created Winterfell and Castle Black which were strategically placed right by the wall that covered the entrance going to the ballroom. At that point, Kimberly's guests had officially traveled different kingdoms to reach the #KimBeyondTheWall!
The guests were in awe with the grand entrance of the Khaleesi of the night, Kimberly, who rode a mechanical dragon made by 4th Wall Production in her intricate and ethereal Patricia Santos gown. And to top it all off, she also had a golden dragon-egg shaped cake custom-made by Sugarbox!
They say grand entrances are one of our specialties. But we say, research is really our strength. During concept-planning with the debutante and her sisters (all GoT fans), we came up with the narrative of the debutante being the queen beyond the wall. So the ballroom had to be set up like it was indeed beyond the wall - with nothing but snow. The dragon had to be Viserion as a wight. The iron throne had to be icy. We loved coming up with back stories / logic behind every set up. We can’t wait to share all these with you. Stay tuned! . . . . #4thWall #ProductionDesign #ProductionDesigner #SetDesign #StageDesign #EventDesign #EventDecor #GrandEntrance #Debuts #DebutsPH #Debuts MNL #Birthdays #BirthdaysPH #BirthdaysMNL #4thWallDebuts #KimBeyondTheWall #GameOfThrones
