washi the wall (a bit!)

Do you follow A Beautiful Mess? I feel like I have been under a rock as I only discovered them today! What a great blog - a new fav. And they shared this awesome idea for washi tape - so easy and yet so awesome!

GOOD LOOKS - Christmas Table Inspiration

christmas tablescapes

Even though we are having Christmas in summery Cape Town, I spotted these gorgeous photos on Apartment Therapy, and I am so inspired to do something similar for my Christmas Lunch tablescape - albeit possibly not so wintery...

GOOD THINGS I LIKE:
1. Most of the tables have a "garland" of greenery down the centre, so I am definitely going to look to do something similar.
2.  Together with the greenery, I spotted pine cones, berries and even real fruit - so keen to add in something too.
3. It seems gold plate chargers are a must - (better get JHB to send some down to the CT shop for me). If you are in JHB you can hire these from our store for only R5 a piece. And I bought myself a Christmas pressie - gold cutlery!
4. Most of the tables in the photos don't have table linen or only a runner down the centre - it seems hessian or linen ones are popular. But as my wooden table is brand new I had my mom sew up a dark navy tablecloth and I found some plaid napkins overseas. (Check out our runners here for hire).
5. Last but not least, candles are a must and I think I am going to try and get some copper ones - fingers crossed @home or Mr Price Home have - thank goodness I was able to get some of these - but I think I need to get more...





UP TO GOOD - Zara's 8th Birthday Inspiration

8 is great!

Zara is officially turning 8 (eight!) on Thursday, so as her Owl Party was already two weeks ago, I thought a little mini family "celebration" is due come Thursday morning. I am still working on the actual plans, but so far I can say the décor is sorted (naturally!).

GOOD LUCK - Christmas Competition

christmas competition

I thought it would be fun to have a little competition today. Vanessa Lewis did the most amazing Gingerbread photo shoot and used lots of lovely things from In Good COmpany. In fact in this photo alone I can spot 10 items (new and old stock) from IGC. Can you? If you can - drop us an email with a list of all the items you see. The one with the most and pulled from a hat will win an IGC hamper of goodies worth R1 000. YAY! Good luck!

Competition closes Friday 19th - that way we can make sure you get your goodies before Christmas.


GOODIES - New Brand!
