We've Got All The Details Of Bea Alonzo's Chic 32nd Birthday Dinner
And chic it was indeed, with her stylish birthday looks and autumn-ready tablescape!
It wasn't just a celebration of life, but a celebration of self, too!
Dressed in a pink, playful party dress by Martin Bautista, Bea Alonzo chose to put the experiences of finding her path and rediscovering herself at the forefront of the October 13 birthday dinner where she smiled and laughed alongside an intimate group of friends and family.
The special occasion marked a symbolic "rebirth" for this Metro.Style cover girl who, in recent months, went through a tumultuous period concerning her past relationship with co-Kapamilya actor Gerald Anderson.
Rather than focus on what was, this birthday girl was all about looking forward what will be, and did so in absolute style!

Bea's good friend and expert event stylist Gideon Hermosa took over her birthday location at Green Sun Hotel in Makati, transforming it into a picture-perfect dinner venue with lush green and earth-toned décor—all perfect for pre-Christmas partying. The ceiling and tablescape were definitely the centers of attraction for party-goers, what with their pretty hanging lights and candle-lit lanterns, as well as sophisticated tableware and fresh blooms to give life to classic long table dining.
As for the feast that tickled everybody's taste buds, Juan Carlo The Caterer, Yumy.Aco and Honey Glaze were to thank for it.
In the middle of all the night's his and hellos were also other cute stations to entertain all guests including a churros booth, a perfume bar, an ice cream bar, a grazing table, cocktails, a dessert station, and a photo booth, too!

It all started with a plan to hold a party for 20... Then... this! The garden and nature feel theme came to life with the magic of House of Hermosa. Attended by her closest family and friends , it was an absolute night of celebration. For some it was a birthday party to celebrate life.... for Bea it's also a celebration of SELF. A visual poetry was made by Tree House Story for BEA so she'd better express who she was, who she is and who she shall be and was launched online simultaneous with the party.

Of course, a party like this could never be complete without guests, and so Bea made sure to invite the individuals in her life who have made her feel nothing but her best.
"I’m celebrating my birthday tonight. I’m celebrating LIFE and being ALIVE. I would’my have it any other way than to be with the people who made me feel loved and special," she wrote on Instagram to caption a pre-birthday post.
Spotted in this celebration were director Mikhail Red, Anne Curtis, Dimples Romana, Iza Calzado, Enchong Dee, engaged couple Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez, Ian Veneracion, and Paulo Avelino as well as ABS-CBN execs Carlo Katigbak, Mark Lopez, and August Benitez.
However, the most special part of Bea's birthday festivities had to be the big reveal of a short film she starred in titled, Muli.
The three-minute film directed by Alesi Almario and Patrick Benitez featured Bea reciting a poetic piece that concentrated on the topic of metamorphosis, the kind one experiences after a hardship. In it, Bea describes and narrates images of pain and recovery, and of rising up and finding the strength to take flight again.
Though not directly addressing specific life events in the actress' life, the film was understood by many as her of saying she was ready to let go of heartache and close the door on controversy, for good this time, as she enters another year of life.
A happiest birthday to you, Bea, and congratulations for all that's in store for you!
Bea joins Kim Chiu and Judy Ann Santos on the cover of Metro magazine's 30th anniversary issue. She's also set to star in a teleserye and a movie, both with Richard Gutierrez.
