The art-deco inspired set-up for ABS-CBN Ball 2018

Stylist Robert Blancaflor combines art and heart for ABS-CBN Ball 2018 look.

This year’s ABS-CBN Ball is no less spectacular compared to the previous editions of its predecessor—the Star Magic Ball—in terms of pomp and grandeur.

Makati Shangri-La’s Rizal Ballroom was turned into a dreamy setup, thanks to the undeniable expertise of event stylist Robert Blancaflor and his team.

But how exactly did they achieve this look?

In an Instagram post by Robert, he described, "This year’s ABS CBN Ball is with an elaborate red spiral ceiling installation that we completely filled with fresh foliage and flowers.

"Around it, we hung different kinds of gold chandeliers; dome, cylindrical and spherical.

"While the previous years have used a predominantly black and white theme, red, gold and black are the predominant colors of this year’s ball."

Since the ball's beneficiary is the Bantay Bata 163 Children’s Village in Norzagaray, Bulacan, Robert made sure that the heart motif for these beneficiaries will be incorporated in their masterpiece.


Prior to today’s event, the world-renowned event stylist gave his Instagram followers a series of teasers.

Robert walked down memory lane as he reminisced the ball setup that he and his team created ten years ago.

Part of his caption reads, “As we all eagerly await the upcoming ABS CBN Ball, formerly known as the Star Magic Ball, I'd like to look back on the very first Star Magic Ball setup that me and my team created sometime 10 years ago.

“As the showbiz event of the year, we made sure to create something awe-inspiring and marvelous.

“We worked with a predominantly white color palette, accented with exquisite details and elegant touches.”

For the 2016 Star Magic Ball, his team opted for a “dreamy, glistening ballroom and a grand ceiling filled with crystal chandeliers.”

“It was a spectacular sight to behold once the ballroom doors opened, as it revealed a setup that sparkled and set the mood for a picture-perfect, memorable night.”
