Nicole recently celebrated her 40th birthday with colourful & stylish party at Shepstone Gardens. I met Nicole in September last year to chat through her plans for this event – the brief was colour, vibrant, and a supercool photoboth. We communicated over the months – mostly about her booth backdrop. Why? Well, the way I see it, Nicole is a lady with definite ideas, and great taste – alas the booth looked exquisite (see above).
Anyway back to the party, in the meantime, guests arrived, greeted by waiters with cocktails on this typically Johannesburg summer afternoon. Whilst mingling on the luscious lawns of Shepstone Gardens, they then got to enjoy canapés, all of which were vibrantly decorated with flowers, to tie in with the vibrant colours and uber stylish decor by Atomic Orchid! yet to be revealed to her guests. As always with events such as these, there are celebratory speeches that tell a bit about the birthday gal/ guy, and also share funny anecdotes. First Nicole’s sister, and then Nicole’s husband who had made up a (humorous) poem in honour of his gorgeous wife 🙂 Before dinner the guests got to enjoy some fun time at the photobooth (post can be viewed HERE), and then, after a tasty dinner put together by Absolute Food, came dance time, including Greek dancing. By the time I wrapped up, the guests were still very much enthralled on the dance floor! Oh! and I almost forgot – there was an exquisite sweet table with delectable sweet things from Moemas….
