Friends, it is the season of giving! 🎄 ⠀
We know with all of the hustle and bustle of the #holidays (let’s not forget wedding planning 📝or getting engaged💍) it’s easy to forget to slow down & help those in need.⠀
Every year we work closely with a local charity to make sure we give back to the community. One that is near and dear to our hearts is @interactofwake ♥️ We help raise money & gather supplies needed through our #Summersoiree . Today we will be helping out before the holidays. 🎁 ⠀

Party prep here today for my eldest and as much as he quite likes a bit of pink I'm not sure his crew of 10yo boys would appreciate this scene!! 🤣 I will be firing up the soda stream for them though!

Oh Flemington...we do love a good twilight market and yours is definitely our favourite! Luv Lil B will be hitting the road and heading to the #FlemingtonCraftMarket on Friday 30th November 2018. This is our very last market for the year and your last chance to grab something cute and cuddly off us for Christmas in person (you’ll still be able to shop online for a few more weeks though!) 🛍 xx⠀

“Oh what fun”
Nothing screams Christmas then a summer soirée celebrating with family and friends.
Shooting the NHJC summer campaign was nothing short of amazing.
Great food, champagne flowing and a whole lot of “Sparkle” made for an amazing afternoon. -

3 TOP TIPS FOR PLANNING A BOUTIQUE DINNER PARTY
Summer is finally about to arrive...the nights are getting longer, the sun is staying out to play in the evenings and everyone smiles a lot more!
It's the perfect time of the year to host a few friends and family to celebrate the year that has been, and all the festivities that are about to kick off.
But beyond the guest list, where do you start?
What if people are gluten free? Do you need to feed the kids separate food? Do you have enough plates?
Who will do the dishes and who will entertain the guests?
There is always more than meets the eye to planning a successful dinner party.
We've hosted hundreds and discovered there's basically 3 main elements to a successful event.
1.TIMING - Making sure you allow enough time to execute your menu well - Giving guests enough time to arrive and settle in before you announce food is being served - Allowing enough time between courses so that your guests aren't starving or worse feeling force fed
2. AMBIENCE - Background music helps to set the tone, and cushions the awkward silences until everyone feels comfortable - Thoughtful lighting can create warmth and intimacy. Try candles near the bar area, the tables and at different levels to fill the space - Snack plates or grazing platters can create places for people to mingle and chat instead of just seated at the dinner table
3. MENU - Making sure you've accommodated any dietary requirements is the most important to do. No one wants to be left hungry because they are allergic to your main course. - Choosing the right type of service for the right level of formality is key. E.g. Shared plates work well for family, plated service is better for special occasions - Quality over quantity. Take time to research your ingredients, the makers, the artisans and bring the wealth of knowledge and expertise of your culinary community to your table. Once you've tasted local (and preferably organic), you won't go back!
I hope that these tips will put you on the path to creating a note-worthy Summer soiree.
With a little planning and care, you can create a relaxed successful event for both guests and host!
A Summer Afternoon On The Patio.
Featuring, impressive and effortless hosting ideas so you don't lose your sun hat while entertaining this summer 😊
Take a walk through the garden and join us on the patio for an afternoon of socializing, tasting, and learning how to pre plan your brunch or afternoon garden tea.
With the beautiful summer days ahead, many of us spend more time in the company of our kids, family and friends which most of the time is outdoors. And, while we aspire to be graceful hosts, beautiful and impressive entertaining shouldn't leave you strained.
The summer palate is easy! Let us show you how to keep the menu exciting and refreshing, the decor aesthetically appealing and memorable.
See you on the patio, Oh' and darling don't forget your sun hat ;) #eventworkshop#summersoiree#alfresco#afternoon#entertain#plan#summerseries#eventplanner#gardensetting#flowers#patio#workshop#southafrica
