Lavish Destination Kids High Tea {Limpopo}

The highlight of planning and styling this lavish destination kids high tea all the way in Louis Trichardt, Limpopo was the warmth and hospitality of my amazingly wonderful clients, Vinasha & Shyam.

The planning of their beautiful daughter’s first birthday party began a good few months in advance and Vinasha was so patient with my delayed responses due to being inundated with events during that time. We chatted about this high tea for months on end and Vinasha wanted Outlandish Events to plan this party at any cost.

When planning an event away from our offices or surroundings, a major costs to factor in your budget is the decor transportation, your planner and team’s accommodation, flights / transport costs and certain vendors travelling costs too. My clients were aware of all this and ensured that all these costs were covered in order for the Outlandish Events team to come out to Limpopo and do our magic.

Lavish Destination Kids High Tea {Limpopo} – Planning & Decor

As with any event, the planning is always stressful. With this event the stress was higher than usual as we had to ensure that nothing got left behind because there was no back up plan! Our long list of to do’s was never ending. Most of our suppliers were coming with us to Limpopo so we had to ensure timeous arrival and set up times.

We left a day before the event and did a venue inspection on arrival to ensure that the layout will remain as is during our planning process. The venue was Bits & Bites – a beautiful venue with ample space and game roaming around.

The theme of the event was simply a classy and elegant high tea with the subtle playful presence of unicorns. My client wanted a centerpiece that was not taking space on the table as we planned on having all the edible on the tables as per a high tea set up. We wanted to keep that part of the event classic to its name. So I recommended a lace umbrella adorned with beautiful flowers and my client was over the moon with the idea! To bring out the presence of unicorns, we played on the carousel concept of having a unicorn on the umbrella. We had to test it over and over again to ensure that this did not look tacky but elegant.

Ballon decor was an absolute must and we again, went with something different and incorporated a balloon wall in beautiful pastel colours with florals in the same shades. That was our photo wall where guests would snap a shot and move on to the gift station – as you will see in the images below, we did a beautiful garland in rosegold and pinks as that was the main colours. 

There were lots of tiny details that had to be on point with this event and it’s challenging keeping track of all this. It was such a wonderful experience setting up a marquee event in limpopo and would love to do it again. Especially if I have clients like Shyam and Vinasha, they took such good care of me, my family as well as my staff. My kids had to come with for that weekend and it was a challenge on its own working with them on site! My son burnt his finger with the glue gun at some point! I know how painful that can be but luckily he was okay after a few cries. 

Shyam and Vinasha ensured that all our needs were well taken care of, they took us out to dinner the night before the event with their family and booked us in a very comfortable hotel. Thank you so much Vinasha and Shyam!
