Christmas DIY – Lindor Chocolate Wreath

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!

A Date At Kamers

Hello Lovely People!

On Saturday morning, Kurt and I had a Date which we spent at one of my favourite events of the year – Kamers, which took place at the Good Hope Castle. As usual, it never disappoints.

This is my kinda date – I just love admiring the creative handwork of the traders who showcase their work.

It was so weird being there with no kids, we could leisurely walk around, sip on our drinks and even have real live conversations! We just smirked as we watched parents running after their little ones and trying to manoeuvre their prams through the crowds. Shame, Kurt even helped a lady carry her pram down the staircase.

Before we left home Aidan was asleep and Alyssa was quite fine to stay with their Nanny but she gave us a bit of a send off at the front door and just intimated that we needed to bring back some form of sweet treat to make her happy!

The atmosphere at Kamers was awesome and the weather really made it the perfect day for Kamers. There were so many amazing stands with stunning products on offer. I had to have a budget for the day, or else I would have gone seriously overboard!

Kitchen – before and after

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.

I’m a big fan of Kamers and was not let down at last weeks pop-up trove. Webersburg wine estate was such a magnificent venue and host to the event and Mother nature was certainly showing off on Saturday. There was so much to see and do, we had such an awesome time. Here are some pictures of the event and what it had to offer. Enjoy!
