  • Let’s be real — cooking and entertaining can get exhausting any time of the year. Best friends Chal del Rosario and Czarina Ledesma know it too well.

    As an events stylist, Czarina has designed fabulous table and space setups that look very expensive. Her projects are often on the luxurious side, but Czar, as her friends call her, is a mom who knows the value of shopping in Divisoria.

Together, they've come up with simple, inexpensive strategies to win guests over — without too much work!
