By | 2018-11-07T11:36:03+00:00 November 7th, 2018|Birthdays, Blog, Decor, Decor Hire, Event Production, Parties, Themed Events|0 Comments

I have always wanted to style a cuban event - I love how chilled Cuba comes across and I am a huge fan of Camilla Cabello's Havana song. So when this client approached me for this Cuban 40th Birthday party, I was thrilled! I love styling all of my events as they so much fun although they are highly stressful but I love transforming spaces and creating authentic themed party experiences. This is exactly what this Cuban 40th birthday party was all about! Cuban 40th Birthday Party Decor In brainstorming for this event, I wanted to create an authentic cuban [...]

Luxury All White 40th Birthday Party

This luxury all white 40th birthday party was one of our event highlight for 2018 - We started the planning of this event in September 2017 -  seven months before the actual event. My client wanted to throw his wife an elaborate surprise 40th birthday party and wanted to blow her away. When I say he blew her away, he definitely did. I have never met a man who pulled off such a lavish birthday surprise party without the wife having a clue of what's going on. Bashani had no idea what Ashley was planning for months and her reaction [...]

A Night in Manhattan 40th Birthday Party

By | 2017-12-22T12:05:17+00:00 December 12th, 2017|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Event Production, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|Comments Off on A Night in Manhattan 40th Birthday Party

Oh how I loved styling this themed A Night in Manhattan 40th Birthday Party. It's no secret that I am a lover of black and white stripes. And with this theme, it's exactly what's needed to bring this party to life. The original Night in Manhattan theme is usually yellow with black and white stripes... However for this 40th Birthday Party, my wonderful client, Alayne, was so in love with touches of pinks! She was truly torn between a Chanel Theme Party with pink flowers or a Night in Manhattan with touches of yellow. To make her beautiful heart happy, [...]

I was busy planning a Modern Chic Safari birthday party when I remembered that I never shared this Jungle Themed 1st Birthday Party on my blog. I had the wonderful opportunity of working with this gorgeous mum, Bea to create a beautiful Jungle Themed 1st birthday party for her son Legend! Bea was one of these amazing clients who gave me the full creative freedom for this event. Originally from Phillipines and living in South Africa, she loved the South African wildlife thus this theme was born. We created the dessert table from palettes to give it the Jungle authenticity [...]

I have been meaning to post this Mermaid Oasis 1st birthday party for a while now but it has been a crazy couple of weeks indeed! So many things happened and so many wonderful events were styled by us too! One of our highlights has been our TV interview on DSTV Channel 347 - if you missed it, here's the link: http://bit.ly/2wPSHUR - We had our first destination luxury wedding at Sun City in the beginning of September and I can't wait to tell it all in my next blog post! It was an amazing experience. Outlandish Events also had the pleasure [...]

Michael Jackson 30th Birthday Soirée

By | 2017-12-22T12:05:29+00:00 July 19th, 2017|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Decor, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|0 Comments

I must say, it is so heartwarming to come across wonderful husbands who take time to cherish their wives and go the extra mile. My client Kwabena was no different. He contacted me a few weeks before his wife's 30th birthday requesting for assistance to pull this event off. His wife is a huge Michael Jackson fan thus the theme was naturally a Michael Jackson 30th Birthday Soiree . The venue which immediately came to mind for this event was the Dainfern Country Club, I thought it would be intimate and just perfect for this theme set up. Michael Jackson 30th [...]

Dr Seuss Inspired 1st Birthday Party

By | 2017-12-22T12:05:38+00:00 June 21st, 2017|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Decor, Kids Parties, Parenting, Parties, Tablescaping|0 Comments

This Dr. Seuss Inspired 1st birthday party got me falling in love all over again with Dr. Seuss. I loved every bit of planning and executing this event. This theme is very trendy and fun at the same time. So, before I carry on, I would just like to add a disclaimer that no animals (or fish.. ) were harmed in the planning, coordination and execution of this Dr. Seuss Inspired 1st Birthday Party.. Hmm, why a disclaimer? Well, I used some live fish in a fish bowl as part of the decor set up - tying it in with [...]

Alice in Wonderland 30th Birthday Party

By | 2017-12-22T12:05:40+00:00 June 7th, 2017|Birthdays, Blog, Decor, Parties, Tablescaping|0 Comments

It's been too long since my last post... I know!! What can I say... 24 hours is just not doing it for me. So I got some free time tonight and thought I would write a quick post about our Alice In Wonderland 30th Birthday party we recently styled. If you are following me on Instagram (if not.. what are you waiting for? Click follow now!)  then you will most likely know that I was highly inspired by Tim Burton's 2010 Alice in Wonderland movie. My client wanted a dark, moody and mysterious theme.. after all it's an adult's party [...]

Ariana’s Carnival 1st Birthday Party

Months of planning went into Ariana's Carnival 1st Birthday Party - My client wanted a carnival theme but it had to be colourful and elegant at the same time. She was looking for a bespoke birthday party not your usual decor items that can be purchased anywhere! She wanted a very busy look and feel to create the excitement of being at a real life carnival. Our colour scheme were mostly pastels. I really liked the result of this event. Our venue was The River Cabin. However the weather turned out really bad on this day. There was a huge [...]

HEE-HAA!! Line dancing, Mechanical Bull, good food and great company was what this Wild Wild West 40th Birthday Party all about. I am gonna skip straight to the decor part where Outlandish Events transformed the client's patio area into a Wild Wild West movie set. We had wonderful Western props to work with. Western cowboy scene setters and a Saloon door prop which we used as the main entrance for the guests to enter through. Huge cut outs of cacti were placed all over the area. We created a bonfire section with hay-bales where guests could relax and socialize. Our decor set [...]
