Events and Functions

Planning a good party to go along with great food is something that I absolutely love!  Fortunately for me, my day job in advertising has allowed me to get quite a bit of experience with events, as I have been planning them for my company for the last couple of years.

Whether it corporate or private, if you have an event in mind that you would like to discuss, drop me a line and we can chat about how I can help you make your ideas a reality.

Corporate Functions

White Picnic at Groot Constantia
What better way to spend your end of year Christmas party than at a white picnic at at beautiful venue.  This event was held at Groot Constantia  wine farm - everyone was bussed from their office to the venue, where they found picnic boxes and umbrellas waiting for them.  For those feeling more athletic there was also volleyball and croquet setup, as well as a DJ to get everyone grooving into the afternoon.

2010 Loerie Awards Ogilvy Pre-Party
In South Africa, the Loerie Awards are the biggest creative awards of the year, so there is always a big fuss made over the Loeries weekend.  We helped Ogilvy throw the pre-party of the year when we came up with the Mad Men theme....true to the tv series, the event was suave and sophisticated.  There were cocktails upon arrrival, followed by which you were ushered upstairs where you could have your picture taken in true movie-star style.  Red and white hanging lanterns hung from the ceilings and were met by white orchids on the free standing tables.  This party was the only way to see in The Biggest Event of the Year.


80's Throwback Office Party
Let's be honest - everybody loves to get dressed up for a party...and that is exactly what happened at this 80's thorwback vibe.  We threw together some legwarmers, lots of bright colours, a rad DJ spinning 80s tracks and left the people to party the night away.

Christmas Carnival at Suikerbossie 
Imagine sitting with a delicious gourmet braai lunch in front of you, on the perfect summers day in Cape Town, overlooking the sea surrounded by good music and lots of friends...this is what met the people for Ogilvy at their end of year Christmas function.  The event was held at the Suikerbossie in Hout Bay.  Complete with candy floss, a tarot card reader, face painter and magician, as well as the ever popular Sumo Suits, the party was an absolute hit with staff!

Private Functions

80th Birthday Lunch
Simple flowers, freshly baked cupcakes, pink bubbly and homemade place mats gave this 80th birthday lunch a personal feel.

Killers Concert Party Bus
Being on a bus with all your closest friends on your way to the concert of your dreams is nothing short of amazing.  Couple that with a couple of beers in the cooler box and the most awesome personalised concert tees - these guys were guaranteed a great day!

Book Club End of Year Lunch
Sometimes it really is as simple as organising a special meal at a beautiful restaurant and then bringing along the flowers and the cupcakes to make it feel personal.  For this occasion, it was ladies book club who needed help, so we arranged them a lunch a Jokerhuis in Constantia - all they had to do was arrive and everything was already setup and waiting for them.  If organising is not your thing - drop us a line and we can take the fuss out of it for you :)

Tee Party with a Twist
At this tee party, instead of drinking tea, everybody that attended had to make themselves a t-shirt instead.  A really simplte idea, but people really got into it and came up with some awesome t-shirts!  We provided some music, basic decor and snacks, but at this event it really was the people who made the matter what the t-shirts said :)
