Lately I have been a little obsessed with the color combination of Rose & Indigo, and while working on our DONUT DIY a few weeks ago, playing around to create the chocolate brushstrokes, I just though to myself that all these elements and colors will make a beautiful theme for a bridal shower.
And this is how the idea for our very first, officially styled shoot started taking shape. I also wanted to use the opportunity to showcase the work of all the very, talented service providers in the Plan Me Pretty Directory, and in the end, it worked out so well. Thank you to everyone for that!
So I really hope that you find some inspiration (or a service provider!) from our work, but most of all, just enjoy browsing through these beautiful images.
To all our readers, please let us know if this is something you would like to see on a regular basis. And to all our listed vendors, please let me know if this is something you would like to be part of in the future.
The Table and Flowers
Mother's day is such a special celebration for me as it is the only 'holiday' every year that the whole family spends together. Me and my sister, our mom, my husband’s parents and my brother-in-law's parents, and all the other siblings and grandchildren in between.
I think today's free printable's are some of the coolest we have ever had!
Four pretty prints, for free, that you can do the following with:
- Print and put it into a frame for your Valentine today.
- Perfect as a cost effective gift for a friend, again, just pop it into a pretty frame.
- Such a simple way of prettifying your walls in your home.
- Hosting a baby shower, birthday or bridal shower? Print them, roll them up, tie with a ribbon - this is almost the perfect thank you gift. Cost effective, but will not be wasted.
We have four designs that you can download and print, two in Afrikaans and two in English.
Happy Valentine's Day xXx

August is Woman's Month, and the lovely Monique, owner at Design Love, has designed a beautiful wallpaper to remind us daily of how strong and amazing women are. So here's to a month of celebrating yourself and all the other women in your life and supporting each other to achieve amazing things.
South Africa commemorates Women's Month in August as a tribute to the thousands of women who marched to the Union Buildings on 9 August 1956 in protest against the extension of Pass Laws to women. This historic march was a turning point in the role of women in the struggle for freedom and society at large.
Sunday is Mother's Day and of course the talented lady, Monique, of DESIGN LOVE has once again made it so easy for us. Thank you so much Monique!
This beautiful free printable set includes (available in Afrikaans and English):
~ Paper Place mat
So go forth and print, cut and be creative! Hope you enjoy this special day with your Mom and family!
Paper Placemat in Afrikaans - Dis die klein herinneringe wat 'n leeftyd sal hou!
The key to a successful week - it has been said over and over - is writing things down. Lists and lists. This week Design Love is spoiling us with the prettiest botanical weekly planner. It is so pretty, you will want one in your home and/or desk every week! And anything pretty laying around is bound to inspire.
I sent my planner to my local print shop and asked him to print out two for me.
- The one I printed on some think A4 cardstock - this one I will keep in my office this week to help met get organised and more productive in the office.
- The other one I asked him to laminate for me. I stuck some magnetic tape on the back, and viola, weekly grocery list and home planner in one. I use an ink based pen and it easily wipes of.
I would love some pictures of you using your weekly planner, tag us @planmepretty on any social media platform.
Two weeks and Easter weekend is here and setting your Easter Sunday table has never been easier!
The bubbly Monique, from DESIGN LOVE - GRAPHIC DESIGN STUDIO - has spoilt us with the prettiest free printable's for our table this year AND you have a choice of pink or blue, or both.
I had loads of fun setting the table for the pictures, outside, under the trees - and once again learned that confetti makes everything look pretty! So start planning and printing, it is almost Easter holiday time.
Paper placemats in Pink or Blue - I printed these on A3, 80gr gloss. A4 will also do and is a little easier on the pocket.
Dessert decorating covers - print on gloss paper and I used a thicker paper of 160gr. Fill them with sophisticated toppings for the adults and for the kids use fun treats such as sour worms and gummies.
Little egg paper baskets - these are perfect for the kiddies table or to hide in the garden for the Easter egg hunt.
Sun~(day)~dae - dessert decorating kit:
No baking required.
Fill an empty egg carton with all sorts of yummy goodies.
Add a pretty glass filled with vanilla ice-cream.
Viola! Easter dessert done!

Thank you again to Monja from DEERLY STUDIO.

This 1950's 'Good House Wife' themed bridal shower made me chuckle and also made me want to plan one immediately (anyone out there - I am ready whenever you are). It is so refreshing, funny and full of color.
This bridal shower was styled by the bridesmaids of the bride and you can see that they absolutely loved doing this for their friend. From ironing boards to aprons, it had it all. The guest favors were wooden spoons (affordable and useful!) and they also had a prize for the 'spiffiest' dressed house wife.
All printable's were downloaded from the Wedding Inspirations website, see link below (they also have some great games that you can print).
Enjoy and please comment with any other fun theme ideas!
This printable set includes everything and anything you need, I am not even going to go through the list, go and have a look for yourself.
