Steven Brown of Glitterville Studios flies to Manila just to decorate Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho Jr.'s house for Christmas. Steven is an American decorating guru who has worked with Oprah Winfrey.

Vicki Belo, Hayden Kho Jr., and their daughter Scarlet Snow will be having a Mexican-themed Christmas this year.

The Belo family unveiled their Christmas decors for the holidays to select members of the press, including (Philippine Entertainment Portal), at their thanksgiving party on Tuesday, November 19.

Vicki's eldest daughter Cristalle served as the host.

Once again, the beauty doctor asked Steven Brown of Glitterville Studios to fly from the U.S. to Manila just to decorate the Belo's family home in a posh village in Makati City.

Steven is an American decorating guru, and has worked with Oprah Winfrey for years.


In an Instagram post last November 21, Steven shared some behind-the-scene videos.

His caption read, "‘Tis The Season For A Tropical Tree At The Manila Home Of @victoria_belo @dochayden And The Most Famous Baby In The World @scarletsnowbelo"

The tree was filled with huge fruit decors and ornaments as well as cute animals, such as ostrich, sloth, and baby donkey, which were all made with paper mache.


During the party, Cristalle and Vicki revealed how they met Steven.

Vicki said, "Cristalle has been following them on Instagram and then she saw na they're here in Manila."

This happened around 2016 when Steven and his business partner Bryan Cabtree went to the country to visit their factory in Antipolo City.

Cristalle sent a message through Instagram and invited them for breakfast.

Cristalle continued, "This was like four or five years ago. I saw na they tagged Makati. And then I'm like, 'Are you guys in Manila?' And then we started chatting.

"That was a Saturday and then, [I told them], 'Why don't you come for breakfast with us tomorrow?' Which was Sunday morning.

"So I joined them for breakfast at 8 a.m. and lo and behold, I was like, 'My mom's gonna love you guys, can you please come to Sunday lunch?'

"So I dragged them to Sunday lunch, we were together for like 8 a.m. until like 5 p.m. on the first day we've met."


Vicki added, "It's the first they've been out of their hotel since they've been coming here for eight years."

Vicki said she wanted to give Scarlet Snow an amazing Christmas experience.

She further explained, "Scarlet was only nine months and so, of course, there's a baby in the house, I felt like, 'Hey guys, can you do our tree?' Para we can enjoy this whole childhood thing again with Scarlet.

"Of course, she's only nine months. She couldn't even appreciate it, but they did our first tree."

Vicki loved Steven and Bryan's work and decided to give Senator Manny Pacquiao and his wife Jinkee the same tree as a Christmas gift in 2017.

The beauty doctor recalled, "It was so beautiful, I decided to give the same tree to Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao as a gift the next year.

"I've been friends with Manny and Jinkee, I never know what to give them.


"I mean I think it would be wonderful, their kids are still small, I could give them a tree that's special. And they said, 'Oh sure, we'll do it!'"

However, the Pacquiao family told Vicki that they were not spending their Christmas at their home in Makati City. Vicki then asked Steven and his team to fly to Saranggani to decorate their tree.

Vicki recalled, "When they got here, they read the U.S. red alert that Saranggani is the most dangerous part of the Philippines.

"But they just have flown back for just one day to do the tree so they decided to do the tree anyway.

"But he said, 'Vicki, I can't imagine, eight years we never left the hotel except when to we go to our factory.'

"'Finally, we got to your house it was like a big step. And then from there, you sent us to the most dangerous part of the Philippines!'"


Steven has been decorating the Belo's Christmas tree for four years now.

In 2016, he went for the nutcracker and Candyland-themed decorations for their tree.

In 2017, the theme was "under the sea."


In 2018, the Belo family's Christmas tree was filled with rainbow and pastel-colored ornaments and unicorns.
