After a first date that failed miserably, wedding bells were the furthest thing from the future Mr & Mrs Mhlanga’s mind. After a six year hiatus the two hit off immediately after their second date in magical New York. Another five years later Leo and Andrea had an intimate, colourful wedding celebration on the picturesque Dornier Wine Estate outside Stellenbosch.
When the formidable Izette, owner of Landtscap and Leipzig, told me about her idea to create table decor ideas using the “ugly ducklings” of the colour world, I was all ears. I mean, how genius and refreshing is that? The creative all girls team at Landtscap and Leipzig dreamed up this series “Colours to Preserve”.
With natural elements like quail eggs as inspiration, the dynamic and creative team from Landtscap venue, dreamed up this gorgeous Easter tablescape. Instead of going for a specific colour, the focus for this look is rather on texture.
We habitually picture a high tea as either an “Alice-in-Wonderland” or pastel pretty affair, so to spice up such a popular theme, Landtscap and Leipzig came up with the idea to do an African High Tea. To get the look they chose ethnic prints, patterns, beads and bright colours.
When someone in the wedding industry ties the knot, you know it will be something special. Today’s beautiful bride Annelize works at Leipzig, one of our favourite floral design companies. She married her groom Carl on a rainy day in August at Kleinevalleij Estate in Wellington.
We end the week with this uber romantic autumn soiree. The gorgeous Grants tied the knot on a warm windstill day in May this year.
So from last week’s bold and festive Mexican inspired ideas move on to this watercolour inspired look. The team at Landtscap, together with Anneke from AnnaH, put together this soft and feminine tea table. To create this dreamy look they used a modern table with ghost chairs and added dusty coloured ceramics, napkins and other sweet details.
