A few weeks ago party planner Sylvia Strauss spoilt her dear friend Amelia with a “tashe & bow tie” themed baby shower at The Birdcage restaurant in Stellenbosch. Sylvia opted for blue grey and white colour scheme that she knew her friend would like. To keep with the restaurants existing decor, she added the charcoal and white striped tablecloths. The centrepieces were made up of Coca-Cola bottles that Sylvia upcycled by painting them a pretty pastel blue. Each bottle was filled with a single stem freesia, which looked so whimsical and light. To carry the moustache theme through Sylvia added a bow tie and tashe to her beloved wooden mannequins. The moustache cookies made by Krummels is my favourite and was the perfect touch to pull this deeply special event together.
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go outside your body.
