The Festive season is upon us and I am so excited to spend this special time with family and friends!
We are hosting a Xmas lunch with friends at our place this coming weekend, so I have the pleasure of setting up the festive lunch table.
When I attended Kamers in Stellenbosch last month, I fell in love with the dried wreaths on exhibition from JM Floral Design. I didn’t know how long it would last before it totally dried out, but thankfully it lasted and still looks great in time for our lunch.
I was excited about decorating it and thought of a few ideas. I searched Pinterest and Youtube and I got a few ideas but when I walked past the recently opened Lindt store in Canal Walk, a lightbulb went off!
I decided to make a photo collage for Alyssa’s birthday of her second year and found this cool idea on Pinterest. It was so easy to do, the hardest part was selecting which pictures to print and use as we have taken like thousands over the past year! It was so much fun putting it together and it was a great way to show party guests Alyssa’s milestones and different events during Alyssa’s second year.
So with only a few days left to Christmas, I thought I would have some fun with my DIY mani yesterday and sought some festive inspiration from pinterest. There were so many different designs but I went for something simple – there was no way I would be able to paint a reindeer on my nail all by myself!!!
I am thrilled to share some photographs of our newly finished kitchen, after enduring months of renovations not only to the kitchen but to the rest of the house as well. Eventually it all came together and we are quite happy with the results but before I get to the “After” pics lets take a look at what the kitchen used to look like.
