OMG! Janella Salvador’s 18th Birthday PAWty!

LET’S PAWTY! Most people fill their birthdays with “wow”, but this one goes from “wow” to “bow-wow”.


Actress Janella Salvador, a certified pet lover, had a ball on her birthday with her “best-pawed-friends”. Dogs (like the human guests) were treated like ‘top cats’, and revel in free grooming, a daycare station, a pet photo booth, and a pet buffet! Now that’s one paw-ty both dogs and their humans sure did drool for! The pet-themed “surprise” party was sponsored by Star Studio and Chalk Magazine. It featured a small pet fashion show, which included dogs and cats.


Janella Maxine Desiderio Salvador is known for playing Sir Chief’s daughter Nikki Grace Lim in ABS-CBN’s Be Careful With My Heart and further stood out with her role as Sophie Z. Cepeda in daytime teleserye Oh My G!. She will turn 18 on March 30.



Salvador’s former leading man Marlo Mortel and actress Michelle Vito were spotted in the event, along with Janella’s mom, Jeanine Desiderio, her little brother, Russel, and other relatives. Marlo serenaded Janella with Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”



This one-of-a-kind debut party, shows another way to celebrate life. Sharing a special day with our pets which somehow become our “paw-friends”, definitely creates something beyond ordinary. The bond between pet owners and pets would always be magical—the understanding, love and sympathy cannot just be explained by anyone.


Janella, as she hugs her cat, is smiling “purr’feclty. This is one “bow-wow” day for us. It is our joy to serve our clients as well as their four-paws besties. While celebrating her birthday, Salvador also took the opportunity to donate a humble amount to The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).


Upon receiving the invitation to be part of Janella’s debut, Team Shekinah Dishes immediately signed up for the challenge. Together with Mago Events Stylist and Inside the Box Events and Creative Studio, we were all tasked to create this fur and fun birthday celebration. The buffet spread has nothing but the best for the debutant: Seared Fish with Capers, Chicken Supreme with Herbed Cream Sauce and Baked Meat Lasagna. Janella enjoyed these dishes, but was immensely satisfied with our Carved-on-the-Spot Roast Beef with Pepper Sauce. She also indulged herself with sweets from our dessert pastries: Cream Puff, Mini Chocolate Cupcake and Crème Brulee. Every detail of the event was skillfully and tastefully planned, prepared, and delivered.

This has been another memorable celebration shared with us. We are really delighted.
