Carnival themed Party {Carike Ridout}
Tandy wanted a carnival themed party for Harvey’s first birthday. She saw a carousel ride at Sandton City which was the inspiration behind the theme. She wanted the colours to be bright which included the likes of bold blues, reds and yellows.     The theme was carried throughout the party from the ‘over the top’ candy table to the Carousel jumping castle. There were carnival favourites such as toffee apples, fresh popcorn and candy-floss, old fashioned sherbet, lollipops and... Read More

Black & Radiant Orchid Styled shoot
At the start of this year we predicted the appearance of dramatic darks at weddings. Whilst hard to imagine that pastels could be replaced by darks and even blacks, it is quite possible and even elegant. Our vision with this Radiant Orchid styled shoot was to show how it can be done and how the Pantone colour of the year 2014 – Radiant Orchid could be incorporated. The end result was a dramatic, yet elegant feel for a wedding {see our Pinterest board here}.     Whilst it is rather challenging to have a black on black palette that... Read More

Madiba quote cards {Lieflingkind Design}
For us, everything seems to move slower in winter – we sleep a little later in the morning, get to bed a little earlier & seem to do a lot of cuddling, eating & trying to stay warm. We’re hibernating, really.     It struck me the other day that, instead of taking it slow, this is the perfect time to get ahead of the game (especially in business). There’s a popular quote by Jerry Rice that says “I will do today what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t.” And so, to commemorate an... Read More

Little manny turned two a little while ago and there was no doubting the theme… I am sure that we will have to go with the Cars birthday party theme for the next 8 years!

We decided to go with the black and white square theme, incorporating it into the... Read More

Farmyard Birthday Party
A Farmyard Birthday party based at an animal farm is pretty easy to decorate because the farm is the perfect backdrop and the animals are the perfect props. Caley, from the Ellie Love Blog, submitted her little Sophie’s 2nd Birthday party to us for feature and we just loved the details. There were red and white gingham table cloths and hessian bunting as well as buckets of animal feed and animal balloons.     The party took place at the Flag Animal Farm in Salt Rock, Durban. The party took around two months to plan, allowing... Read More
