Celebrity Event Stylist Rob Blancaflor Ushers In A New Era For His Brand And Company

Amid the pandemic, the veteran event stylist and florist leads his design and rental company into the new normal of weddings and special occasions

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our world upside down, and whatever we thought was going to happen this year most likely isn't—we're talking about vacations, parties, events, and yes, even weddings. A lot of couples have decided to either postpone their weddings that were supposed to happen this year, or have instead chosen to either do a very intimate gathering, saving a grand event for sometime in the future.

Surely these uncertain times have taken a toll on the wedding and events industry, but we join hands with them in believing that one day, once this phase is over, the industry will come back stronger than ever, armed with a passion for making life's occasions a little more special! Suppliers such as photographers, videographers, wedding coordinators, caterers, designers, glam teams, and event stylists patiently prepare and wait for that day, and for now, look back at the beautiful memories they've created with couples in the past.


One such trusted supplier in this industry is Rob Blancaflor, the veteran celebrity event stylist and florist behind 18th.ph, a one-stop-shop for putting up your own event. This website launched just June of last year, but has already become one of the trusted sources of the best luxury event rentals in town. Rob ushers in a new era for his brand, with a new set of guidelines and protocols to be observed, as well as flexible plans for clients who wish to book or have existing bookings.

Just like many Filipino companies, the safety of employees is of utmost priority during this time. 18t.ph shares that as they cooperate in helping to flatten the curve in the country, they have safety as top of mind. 


Virtually, especially for you

And because special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays like Father's Day are still happening, 18th.ph prides itself in being open virtually, with their website open to offer customers their services or purchase items that can be sent to loved ones within Metro Manila. Electronic or E-Gift Vouchers are also available on the site, without any expiration date, so that one can take part in creating a loved one's dream event in the future. Now isn't this just brilliant?


Just last Mother's Day, they offered goodies for the special women in our lives, in the form of beautifully designed bouquets and even baskets of cookies, as seen in the post below:

Assured safety

Even as Rob and his team put a halt to physical event styling, the promise to overhaul their safety measures once things to back to operation remains. They shared that "Even when we begin to execute events or render services once again, we would be implementing actions such as inspections of general cleanliness of our materials and equipment, checking of overall tidiness of our staff, together with having proper protection using masks, gloves, and temperature checks, as part of our regular operation and protocol."



Flexibility is key

And since social gatherings and events seem to not have a place in the near future, Robert Blancaflor & Groups Inc., together with 18th.ph would like to thank their clients for their consideration of safety of their guests and loved ones. Have a booking with this company? Don't fret. They offer rescheduling services with no additional charge. Their Marketing Officers will be glad to discuss the details on your new arrangement!


If you or a couple you know are interested in inquiring or planning a special event in the latter part of the year or even for 2021, their lines are open for such, and would be glad to accommodate any that comes their way. In terms of payment, an important aspect of event planning, the brand has added credit card options online for easy, faster, and no physical contact transactions. 



Rob shares a few insightful words of encouragement, for his clients and for the industry he's part of, as he says "This may be an immensely challenging time but I believe that after the drought, there will be rains and flowers, and life will bloom, more colorful than ever on that same land. For as long as we hold up well, remain healthy and optimistic, we would come to see a brighter day where we could hug and come together again. Until then, we couldn't hardly wait to see you again, and give you the best of our services like we always do. For now, I am hoping for your family's overall wellness."
