One of the requests I get most frequently is for a tour around our home, so finally here it is. Starting with our downstairs living area. We sorted our home out for AirBnb so I took the opportunity to snap some pics while it was at it’s least cluttered 😉
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!
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. 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. XOXO
Love your mama
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!
NOTE: This post is from last year’s party !! Very delayed haha
My boys are almost exactly 2 years apart, and for the longest time they shared birthday parties which made so much sense because they shared many of the same friends and it was silly to spend double, 2 weeks apart. As they have grown older, however, it has become all the more evident that they are very different little personalities, and wanted something very different out of their parties. Jordan Rock is “friends with everyone”. The more the merrier for him as he wound invite everyone he has ever met to his party if possible. Jackson, on the other hand, is far more reserved, with fewer close friends, and when it came to planning their parties last year it was clear that he wanted something small, intimate, and mainly with his closest male-friends from school. He couldn’t not invite two of his best girl-friends too, Chloe and Sophie. Continue reading “Pirate Party | Jackson turns 6”
In concept stage of our house we had lots of ideas. There were loads of ideas of things we loved and hoped to try incorporate. I think I had hundreds of boards and pins on my Pinterest account, all individually dedicated to each space in the house. I had an idea of how I wanted to bring wood into the home to bring a more natural feel into the ‘chic’ decor style I was after. Black, white and gold can be a slightly harsh base from which to build your mood board, but by incorporating some natural elements like leather and wood can transform it into a chic yet warm and inviting living space.
It was all fairly simple to pin together mood boards of our dream of what the space should look like, but when these hopes & dreams were followed up with quotes and costings we just about cried ourselves to sleep at night… okay maybe that was just me…!
