The event was hosted at Buitengeluk Venue, Broadacres.
Hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I did and thank you to everyone involved for sharing with our readers!
This little event was actually a kitchen tea for a very quirky person in the film industry.
Her friends surprised her completely with throwing this kitchen tea for her and she was in tears (of joy) when she walked in and saw the table and asked if it was all just for her, she was so overwhelmed and overjoyed.
The theme I was given was Fantastic Mr Fox, one of her favourite films. The brief was to keep it quirky and different. I was very excited to get the chance to do something so different and to try and capture this quirkiness in a very elegant way.
It can be quite a juvenile theme, so I had to figure out a way to make it less juvenile and more adult. I did this by using very beautiful, luxurious flowers such as orchids, hydrangeas and tulips, including interesting little items such as air plants, lotus pods, dragon fruit and pomegranates and also by using a lot of neutral colours to tone down the bright colours of the theme being orange, blue and red. Lots of wood and greenery and green flowers were used to achieve this.
The end result was something earthy, yet colourful without the colours being overbearing and a look that translated the bride to be’s personality onto a table set up as quirky and unique as she is.

~ The animal details - look out for the animals hiding in the decor. Spot the rabbits, budgie and owl.
