Lekker Potjiekos { Local Cuisine }

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 06:40:59 +0000

It doesn’t get more proudly South African than a lekker “potjie”! Whether you’re having a summer celebration or winter soiree, there’s always room for “potjiekos” on the menu. In summer time, we suggest keeping it light and flavourful with chicken and seafood potjies. What’s more, the preparation can form part of the celebrations, and you can light a big bonfire for guests to hang out around. In wintertime, consider serving more hearty fare like a beef, oxtail or lamb potjie. While it will most likely be too cold to prepare the food under the stars, you can ask the kitchen […]

Pop Pop! { Cake Pop Favours }

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 06:16:48 +0000

They’re cute, they’re delicious, and they’re everything your guests want in a guest favour! Cake pops have been around for a while now, but that doesn’t mean they’re old news – on the contrary. We simply adore themed cake pops! What’s more, there are so many decadent and beautiful cake decorations available on the market these days, you’ll certainly find a way to make cake pops your own. For instance, cake glitter, cake pearls, edible ribbons, frosted lace and rosettes are just some of the lovely bits and bobs you can use to decorate your pops. When it comes to […]

Cookie Cakes { Sweet Inspiration }

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 08:52:18 +0000

Cookies are universally loved by one and all! If you have friends who don’t like cookies, they don’t deserve an invitation to the wedding (kidding!) We’ve mentioned cookie tables and cookie favours in the past, but what about full-blown cookie wedding cakes? There are many ways to approach a cookie cake. For starters, you can go the layering route – this basically involves stacking a large number of cookies in layers (in the shape of a tiered wedding cake), and using smooth icing to keep it in place – almost like cement. Another option is to simply decorate your wedding […]

Midnight Munchies { Snack Attack }

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 06:40:37 +0000

Dancing like “nobody’s watching” can be exhausting, and after a while your guests are going to need a little fuel to keep going! Midnight snacks (although generally not served at midnight) are becoming more and more popular by the season, and guests are loving it. Alternatively, you could send your guests home with snack packs to enjoy after the wedding, while they recover at home. Here are a couple of ideas for what to serve to get the party restarted: Add a little nostalgia to the order of the day with milk and cookies – or put an adult spin […]

Pearls of Wisdom { Old World Charm }

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 04:43:54 +0000

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but we say pearls are in strong competition for the BFF spot. These sophisticated treasures are a must for the wedding day, and add a touch of old world glam to any occasion. Whether you buy them new or wear a family heirloom, you simply can’t go wrong with a pearl themed wedding. There’s no denying that pearls are expensive, so in some instances you might have to do a little trickery and throw some artificial pearls into the mix – as long as you keep it classy. Complete your bridal ensemble […]

Good Enough to Eat { Centre Pieces }

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 09:26:36 +0000

If there’s one pain that every bride is all too familiar with, it’s the battle of choosing the right centre piece. Well, allow us to make the decision even more difficult, by adding a new type of centre piece to the equation that you never even thought possible: Edible centre pieces. Even though these masterpieces are edible, it’s not necessarily encouraged that your guests actually tuck into the centre pieces. The idea is to use bits and bobs out of your pantry to add flavour to your table. For instance: Use coffee beans in a vase or flat candleholder to […]

Frosted Fountains { Cake Inspiration }

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 07:52:54 +0000

When it comes to wedding cakes, nothing surprises us anymore. Or so we thought… until we came across water fountain cakes. This isn’t an interesting description for a cake design – it actually means exactly what it says: A fountain built into a wedding cake. Before you stop and say “but why?” take a moment to think of how whimsical a cake of this stature could be. Whether the water fountain passes through the cake, or is positioned below it, the fact remains that trickling water will certainly add to your romantic ambiance. The key thing to bear in mind […]

Go Geometric { Artsy + Contemporary }

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 06:33:30 +0000

Perhaps you’re a little OCD, or maybe you’ve just fallen head-over-heels for shapes – either way, a geometric theme is right up your alley. And oh so trendy at the moment! The trick to pulling off a geometric-inspired wedding is to throw all the rule books out the window, and to be brave in everything that you do and choose. There are numerous ways to skin this cat (figuratively spoken, of course): Metallic geometric shapes add a touch of contemporary style to any celebration – hang them from the ceiling or place them on your guest tables, surrounded by flowers. […]

Watercolour Whimsy { Dress Inspiration }

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 06:31:13 +0000

Soft, mesmerising and oh-so feminine – in fact, it doesn’t get more breath-taking than this! We’re of course talking about watercolour wedding dresses. Tainted with arbitrary flecks of pastel colour, these gowns are everything a pastel-loving bride could dream of. Then again, you don’t necessarily have to stick to pastel – go wild! Choose bold, bright colour! Embrace the theme! For starters, you could keep it very abstract with a splash of mixed colours swirled all over your wedding dress. Alternatively, keep it simpler with one or two colours, with bits of white peeking through here and there. Another option […]

Move Over for Mauve { Soft + Lovely }

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 06:55:35 +0000

Mauve is one of those colours that your hubby-to-be probably won’t understand (“so it’s pink?”), but that every guest will adore. With an almost grey undertone, this unusual colour is exactly what you’ve been looking for since the moment you started planning your wedding. What’s more, it can suit practically any theme – from soft vintage to deep and dramatic. Here are a couple of ways to apply it: Balance out the mauve with shades of soft grey or even duck egg blue. Add plenty of lace and vintage elements to play up the olden day feel of the colour. […]
