Ice Cream Shoppe 5th Birthday Party

By | November 16th, 2016|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Decor, Kids Parties, Parties, Tablescaping|0 Comments

This Ice Cream Shoppe 5th Birthday Party is a special one.. Because it was my princess's birthday. My daughter looks forward to her party from day one of the year as I am an event planner mom. So she watches me plan back to back parties and naturally expect a party for herself. Every year we say that's the last party - next year will be something sweet and simple. But no... It's always a tea party happening every single year. This year I (being the over-exhausted mom) decided no party at all. I will just bake some goodies and [...]

Royal Prince 1st Birthday Party

By | November 9th, 2016|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Decor, Kids Parties, Parties, Tablescaping|0 Comments

Yes, I am on a roll with my blog posts! Time is a little bit on my side this week and I decided to catch up. So after our Royal Princess 1st Birthday Party, we were asked to style a Royal Prince 1st Birthday Party and we were overjoyed! I have to mention that this client of mine is such a wonderful and beautiful woman inside and out. It was an absolute pleasure working with her. I was touched by the warmth she and her family showed to us on the day of the set up. God bless you and your family [...]

Carnival 1st Birthday Party

By | November 2nd, 2016|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Corporate Events, Decor, Kids Parties, Parties|0 Comments

Now that I look back on this Carnival 1st Birthday Party, I realised that it was our fourth carnival set up for that week. I was eating carnival for breakfast, lunch and supper! We did three carnival candy bar set ups  for Werksmans Attorneys activation campaign at three different locations; University of Pretoria, Wits and we flew down to UCT as well to set up. For photos of our set ups, visit our instagram page. The Werksmans Attorneys' activation campaign was completely different to this 1st Birthday Party.  We had to stick to the campaign colours and all three locations had [...]

Paris High Tea Birthday Party

By | October 27th, 2016|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Decor, Favours, Kids Parties, Parties, Tablescaping|0 Comments

Anyone who knows me personally will know that I love everything French. The reason being that I have a history with French.. which I will save for another post!  I love the language which I can speak, the food.. not so much. However the cakes and pastries.. well, what can I say? That's a love story all on its own. I have been to Paris and I would love to go back again. Coming from a French / Indian / Creole background (I come from an amiable fusion of cultures!), I adore the French culture - the kissing on both [...]

Vintage Carousel 1st Birthday Party

By | October 5th, 2016|Blog, Parties|0 Comments

So it's been a crazy couple of weeks and I just managed to catch a breather only to blog about this gorgeous Vintage Carousel 1st Birthday Party we recently styled.. I could not resist sharing all the details with my readers. Every minute of planning this function was fun. I absolutely could not wait for the actual day to see how it would all turn out and how all the elements would tie in together. Of course, the end result was gorgeous! It all began four months before the time and both my client and I were in between themes and [...]

Under The Sea 1st Birthday Party

By | September 15th, 2016|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Decor, Kids Parties, Kids Stuff, Parenting, Parties, past events, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|0 Comments

Mermaid Kisses & Starfish Wishes... Where do I begin with this Under The Sea 1st Birthday Party...? This party was planned three months in advance however a week before the event, we were still without a venue. Why.. you ask? Well, my gorgeous client was so uncertain about the venue as she wanted something different. She threw out all my kids party venue options! Lol each event comes with it's own challenges. A week before the event, we found the perfect venue, Monaghan Farm. We were lucky enough that they had availability. I personally love Monaghan Farm. Modern Farm living at its [...]

Our Vintage Affair continues…

By | August 31st, 2016|Birthdays, Blog, Cakes, Decor, Parties, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|0 Comments

So the Vintage Affair continues.. Just a quick post on our Vintage Themed Cake Table. As per our previous blog posts, the vintage theme is Outlandish Events’ signature theme. With our Moroccan Iftaar party uploaded on our blog a few weeks ago, my client requested a vintage cake table to be set up for her mom as it was her 70th birthday. They wanted to treat her to something special and my client wanted the birthday cakes to be beautifully displayed in our Signature Theme. Let’s not forget that we had four days to plan the Moroccan Party and added to [...]

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 Lavish Moroccan Iftaar Party

By | August 16th, 2016|Blog, Decor, Favours, Parties, Special Ocassions, Tablescaping|0 Comments

Usually we plan a function 2 - 3 months in advance... However with this lavish Moroccan Iftaar Party.. We had four days to put it together! Yes you heard right! Four days! At first I was reluctant on taking this function as I did not want the tiny time frame to impact on the quality of my services, however my baker convinced me otherwise. She insisted that I do this function as she was doing the cakes and she didn't want me to disappoint this longstanding client of hers by saying no.. So based on her word and convincing, I said [...]

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 [...]
