Jungle Themed 1st Birthday Party

By | October 25th, 2017|Bespoke Kids Parties, Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Creative Foods, Decor, Kids Parties, Kids Stuff, Parenting, Parties|14 Comments

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 [...]

Nautical Glam Baby Shower

By | August 16th, 2017|Baby Showers, Blog, Cakes, Creative Foods, Decor, Parties, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|22 Comments

I have always wanted to style a nautical themed event. When this client contacted me to style his wife's baby shower, I was overjoyed! I love the Nautical theme. I have a thing for stripes of any color. Navy blue and white with some reds set the tone for this Nautical Glam Baby Shower. However, for someone like me who is always styling luxurious events, I decided to add a bit of glam. So a touch of gold it was! I quite enjoy working with the men who contacts me to surprise their wives. They pick a theme (or gives [...]

Guest Speaker and Judge at The Thematic Table Tea Fundraiser

By | July 12th, 2017|Blog, Charity Event, Creative Foods, Decor, Tablescaping|0 Comments

This is a long overdue blog post and I apologise to the people involved!! I recently had the honor of being invited as a guest speaker and judge at the Thematic Table Tea Fundraiser in Nigel. I am naturally a shy person and refrain from public speaking. However, this event was such a good charity cause that I could not say no. All proceeds for this event went to the local Nigel Orphanage in Alra Park. My speech was all about the art of tablescaping and how a beautifully set table should be a finishing touch not an afterthought. A tablescape [...]

Outlandish Events' focus lies on quality, building long term relationships with our clients, exceptional values and services. This client that I am blogging about is one of my many clients who knows that our company stands true to this statement. We have styled many events for this client and each and every time, our hard work is highly appreciated. She always gives me the full reign on the decor and when an event stylist has such freedom on the decor, then the event is taken to a level of WOW like this Little Man 1st Birthday Party. Little Man 1st [...]

Under The Sea Birthday Party

By | August 26th, 2016|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Creative Foods, Decor, Favours, Kids Parties, Kids Stuff, Parenting, Parties, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|0 Comments

Under the Sea...  Mysterious and magical... This theme was a popular one for us. We styled two functions recently with this theme and both the functions were completely different from the other. This “Under the Sea” 2nd birthday party was more focused on the fish and creatures of the underworld. Our backdrop consisted of fish nets and we had a low table set up for both the desserts and the kids. We had huge fish cut outs as the birthday girl was so into fish. This Under The Sea decor set up was simple and consisted of lighthouses, seashells, treasure [...]

A Royal Princess High Tea

By | July 22nd, 2016|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Creative Foods, Decor, Favours, Kids Parties, Parties, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|0 Comments

A Royal Princess High Tea came my way and obviously how can I ever say no to such an elegant theme! We were at a time crunch planning this function but as always Outlandish Events and the team did an excellent job at flawlessly executing this event – although we had two other functions to set up on that weekend, the team outdid themselves by successfully executing three major functions in one weekend. This Royal Princess High Tea was nothing short of a WOW event. The colour scheme were soft pink and gold. This is quite the “in-theme” for 2016 [...]

Chanel Chic Baby Shower

By | June 9th, 2016|Baby Showers, Blog, Creative Foods, Decor, Favours, Parties, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|1 Comment

It is always an honour when high-profile clients appreciate our work and ask us to style their function. However, with this client, it was an extra special honour to style her baby shower as the Tambo family played such a vital role in putting an end to the apartheid regime in South Africa. Theodora Tambo was such a lovely person to work with. The fact that we were both on the same page as to how the function should be was an absolute ease! Theodora was just as particular as I was and attention to details were of utmost importance. We [...]

Handmade hot air balloons, propeller planes, hot air balloon shaped cookies, vintage parcel thank you gifts... That's our vintage up up and away birthday party. I have been wanting to style a party like this for a while and finally I got the chance! My client's son was turning one and what better way to celebrate! Travelling was part of the theme thus we had a world map backdrop which tied our theme quite nicely together. Our thank you gifts were party boxes filled with yummy goodies and wrapped in brown paper to resemble vintage parcels. We went as far [...]

Paris Themed Baby Shower by Outlandish Events

By | July 21st, 2015|Baby Showers, Blog, Cakes, Creative Foods, Decor, Favours, Parenting, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|4 Comments

OOh la la, when it comes to Paris and anything French related I simply can't resist! So when my client approached me to plan her Paris Themed Baby Shower, there was no way that I could say no although her baby shower was right in the middle of Ramadaan. My client loves black and white stripes so we had our colour scheme right from the word get go! With a dash of pink and some elements of vintage, we were ready to bring down the house! I always believe that you meet certain people for a reason and the same with [...]

You Are My Sunshine 1st Birthday Party styled by Outlandish Events

Outlandish Events was honored to style this first birthday party as we also did the mom's baby shower (Ready to Pop) around a year ago! So when I was asked to plan the baby's first birthday party, it was only a pleasure for us to take on this task. The theme was " You are my sunshine" and our color scheme was bright pink and yellow with a bit of chevron here and there as well as some polka dots. My client wanted a very vibrant atmosphere and I feel we have achieved that if you have a look at [...]
