Silly season is upon us. Even in the sweltering South African summer, we all somehow hear the siren call of those cheesy Christmas themed sweaters, and want to cover our homes and desks with tinsel and snowflakes.
Summer is here! And so is peak eventing season. The balmy South African summer days and nights lend themselves to the best of outdoor eventing. The key to pulling off a great outdoor event in the height of summer though, is always preparation.
We’re rolling into the silly season. And it’s getting to that time when the invites need to go out for the company year-end function. If it’s your responsibility to pull it all together, we know first-hand how tricky it can be to strike the right balance of fun, food and formalities.

We can finally see (and feel) the sunlight at the end of the winter tunnel. Spring is the perfect time for outdoor events and celebrations bursting with colour and fun. We’ve rounded up some of the ideas we’re most excited about for the Spring 2018 event season:
If you’re planning a seated wedding reception or gala evening, your choice of tables and floor plan can complete change your guests’ experience.

The 18th of July 2018 marks 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela. This is an opportune time for each of us to reignite our commitment to do good and heed the call of the Nelson Mandela Foundation to “be the legacy” as we reflect on the life of a true icon.
