Jun and Nene Leonor hosted a dinner party in honor of Philippine ambassador to the Court of St. James, Antonio “Tonetts” Lagdameo, and our ambassador to Spain, Philippe Lhuillier. The party was held at the Leonor compound.

The garden was fully lit with tivoli lights, and overhanging the buffet table were white twigs all lit up. The floral centerpiece arrangement was by the Bonoan sisters—Tina, Mari and Mailet.

Jun Leonor gave a toast to the two newly appointed ambassadors, with Dom Perignon and Möet champagne. Drinks flowed all night.
