Pretty in Pink 'Fake' Hens night.

Our Beautiful friend Dominique gave us a little surprise visit from the UK last week and because she is getting married in Portugal next year she had [PS] plan a little 'fake' or should we say 'pre' hens night for her while she was in Joeys.

Sugar highs were the name of the game and the table was gorgeously and deliciously decorated with all things pink - Chinese steamers filled with candy floss, mini Chinese take-out boxes filled with sugar coated pink gums, watermelon liquorice strips, jars of gummy lips, musk sweets and  marshmallows.

In between the feathers and pink poppies on each place setting was a scratch card that gave Dominique a list of dares to complete. Daniella from Pink Vanilla cc brought her chalk board along and each guest wrote a message to the bride to be which were photographed and sent to her for keep sakes. The evening was filled with good laughs, giggles and a very Pretty in pink bride to be....

Thank you for sharing your memorable evening with [PS] We wish you all the love, luck and happiness in the future with your lovely hubby to be.

A wind mill, bunting flags and a very beautiful wedding...

The lovely and creative Adri married her prince, Francois, at The Cow Shed in Lydenburg on the 2nd April and Prep'ed by Sasha was there to feed the  hungry tummies.

After a comfortable 3 hour drive The cow shed is a sight for sore eyes as you drive down their windy sand road, lined with tall grasses and see the welcoming farm house with its traditional stoop, corrugated iron red roof and its story telling big trees.

The weddings are held in the big shed which Ari decorated beautifully with bunting flags, veld flowers, old books and jam jar vases.

[PS] designed the menu around Adri's relaxed theme to look like a deli style table with little Delicious morsels in funky little spoons and bamboo boats.

Beginning with canapes served by our waiters [ wonton hearts with smoked salmon and wasabi caviar, warm pea soup and mini caprese skewers] which then proceeded onto the self service 'buffet' of mini tarts, fresh salads served in perspex cubes, Asian prawn skewers, lamb cutlets served on pea puree, mixed mushroom and springbok carpaccio bruschetta, Chinese boxes filled with tabbouleh and seared beef  and decadent cheese boards.

The day was brought to an end with a scoop of strawberry cheesecake ice cream. mmmm

Congratulations Adri and Francois [PS] wishes you all the happiness and love in the world.

Thank you to Di and her team at The cow shed for their helping hand at making this all such a great success.
