If you are looking for furniture to hire for any party or event in Durban I can highly recommend the services of UNIK. They are a Durban-based furniture rental company, providing quality and service of modern furniture and accessories. Their ever-growing portfolio includes loungers, conferencing, cocktail, café, banqueting, office and accessory ranges. Some of their furniture for rental in their catalogue had me swooning! They have everything from picnic-shabby-chic, to red-carpet luxe!Continue reading “Party Furniture | UNIK”
Our precious Jordan Rock turned FIVE years old this August, and his party theme of choice was a FIREMAN party. It is honestly crazy to think that my sweet, kind and very busy little boy is already half-a-decade in age. What an absolute blessing he is to all our lives… I wrote him a little love letter:
A letter to my precious 5 year-old, second-born child:
To our gorgeous, blue-eyed, white-wispy-blonde-haired little firecracker.Love your mama
You are a constant, overflowing ray of light in our every day. You bring joy out of the most ordinary of things or situations. You are the most beautiful example of JOY that I have ever known in my 33 years of life. You have taken five years to learn about how your body moves, or doesn’t/shouldn’t move, having taken years off your mama’s life from all the many dangerous and precarious situations you have put yourself in… but I think you are finally getting there. I do think you are destined to be a thrill seeker, but time will tell and we continue to pray for protection over you always. You love us and everyone you know whole-heartedly, and have a huge and forgiving heart. You have the ability to be the life of the room, and also at the same time to be the most sensitive to those in need of a little extra love. You are just all kinds of wonderful, my boy. Thank you for continually being a little light in our lives, we are blessed by you daily. Love you sooooo much.
We were very spoilt to have had many brands and businesses collaborate on Jordy’s party so that they might show off what they have to offer you and your children’s parties, so please take a look and remember these awesome suppliers for future!Continue reading “Fireman Birthday Party | Jordy turns FIVE”
One of the most essential additions to any of our parties has to be the presence of a professional photographer. Justin and I are so busy entertaining our guests and checking on the kiddies that there is just no time to capture the special moments. One of the reasons I don’t feel sad when a party is over is because I feel so excited to see the pictures that will follow soon after. Tash from POSH recommended the services of Mo Heine from BlondeZulu Photography. It was my first time meeting Mo, but gosh, this stunning blonde certainly impressed me.Continue reading “Party & Event Photographers | BlondeZulu Photography”
A birthday cake is such a huge centre of attraction at a birthday party, and I think that must be why it is something that brings me a lot of anxiety before the party. It is a central point around which guests gravitate to celebrate the birthday boy/girl, and something EVERYONE focuses in on… and for those reasons is something I always want it to reflect the theme of the party as best as possible.
I had never worked with Nix from Decor & Delights before, but I had seen the cake she had made for my sister’s birthday, and I knew she was someone I was keen to work with and help to grow her business…
I was introduced to a wonderful new party shop on the North Coast called Yolo Party Shop. I was already excited at the prospect of sharing about a new local business, and when Tash mentioned to me how incredibly excited they were to be collaborating, and how wonderfully passionate and willing they were to offer unique balloons I became even more excited. From there I was continually blown away, moment by moment!
Diren arrived at my house on Saturday morning, the morning of Jordy’s party, arms full of gorgeous balloons. Diren is the co-owner of Yolo Party Shop, along with his beautiful wife. Diren arrived full of enthusiasm and so excited to be part of the event. He proceeded to inform me of the fact that he had 9 other jobs that day AND he was flying to JHB. All of that and he went out of his way to deliver the balloons for the party! I was, and still am, absolutley blown away by the heart of service that this couple has for their business.Continue reading “Biodegradable Party Balloons | Yolo Party Shop”
If you are looking for a balloon supplier who is not afraid of a challenge and always open to learning and pushing herself then look no further!
Taryn from Mad Hatters Party Shop in Ballito is your gal!
Jordy’s party is now the third event I have collaborated with Taryn on, and I have to say she continues to blow me away.
I have shared about my love for Natasha Parsons before, but I need to just once again stress the value she brings to my events and parties.
I first met Tash when she reached out to me about getting involved in a Fundraiser I was involved in for Claire Hodgson who was fighting cancer (see post HERE). It is safe to say that this girl crept into my heart there and then… and that is where she has stayed!
As moms we know all too well the many benefits of our children playing with PlayDoh, not least of which:

- Creativity and imagination
- Calming effect
- Develops hand-eye coordination
- Social Skills
Coach Learnmore is the most wonderful addition to any birthday party! We have known Coach for about 3 years now, as my boys did Footy with him down at the bottom of Ballito. His magnetic yet humble personality really endeared me to him, and I am so excited to tell you a little about this awesome guy!

Coach Learnmore is the most wonderful soccer coach, who is able to magically manage and keep all the kids entertained and active almost all of the time. A favorite for his is running soccer action and entertainment at kids parties – and he is GREAT at it! It is evident from all the pics just how much frun was had, and thanks to Coach, the kids were kept warm in the cooler weather we had on the day of the party.
When I thought about what to do for food at Jordy’s party the first company that came to mind was the Chilli Chocolate Chefs. I had recently experienced their phenomenal skills at the Exposure Workshop that took place in Durban, and from that moment I just knew that I wanted to have them cater for my events.Continue reading “Party Food | Chilli Chocolate Chefs”
