Wedding favors are small gifts as a sign of appreciation or gratitude to guests of the bride and groom at a wedding or a wedding banquet.

The tradition of distributing wedding favors is very old. It is believed that the first wedding favor, common amongst European aristocrats, was known as a bonbonniere. A bonbonniere is a small trinket box made of glass, porcelain and / or precious stones. The contents of these precious boxes were generally sugar cubes or delicate sweet, symbolizing wealth and nobility. (At this time, sugar was an expensive and treasured only among the rich. It was believed that sugar contained medical benefits). As the price of sugar decreased throughout centuries, the tradition of providing gifts to guests reached the general population and was embraced by couples of modest means.

Back before we went to Paris, this little one kept bugging us – when’ll we go to Paris? how many days left?


So, about a month before we actually went – I became fed up with her every day bugging and created her this little calendar, using Websters pages, Elle’s Studio-tags, random bits and pieces and ofcourse – Glue Arts.


It turned out rather chunky, and is bound together with a Bind-it-all.


It works just like a Christmas-countdown-calendar…just..this time we counted down to our vacation..


I perforated the tags, making them easy to rip away for every day…


It’s a great way to get rid of random bits and pieces, and at the same time – you can save the tags and reuse them for cards and stuff afterwards.


Nevertheless..the tutorial on how to create this one is found here.



She loved this one for sure, and we didn’t hear much bugging (only her reminding us how many days it was until the vacation, because now she knew ;p)

We spent a wonderful day at Rockhaven Farm in the epic and beautiful Elgin Valley with Graham and Mariam for their wedding yesterday. The sun came and went throughout the day but there were spectacular moments as it reached out from behind the clouds uplifting the hills and orchards that surrounded us, giving everyone some much needed relief from the chill in the air. Summer hasn't come to Cape Town just yet it seems. But it didn't seem to bother this amazing crowd.

Congratulations guys.





Apart from the bats, none of the things used on this box really is Halloween-specific. All you need is to use stuff with the typical Halloween-colors all in one sorta.


The bats were pulled from a bat-vine from Prima, the vine with the pumpkin as well. The glitter cardstock is from Core’dinations, and the papers are from the printery-collection, with some flowers and flocked rubons and mirrorthingies mixed in.


The box reveals a little hat which immediately made me think of a friend of mine…


Pretty leaves..



Just wanted to share this last Halloween-thingie before the actual Halloween :)

Have a spooky night!

Psst. Check out the other Prima-girls’ Halloween-inspo! And here’s how the Glue Arts-girls celebrate their Halloween!

I am extremely excited to be working with recently engaged couple Michelle Du Preez and her fiance' Jon Mafia. We recently shopped for the perfect location and the couple has chosen a spectacular wedding venue in Palm Beach to be announced after invites go out.
I will be posting planing updates so you can follow this amazing couple on their planning journey.I can't wait to see it all come together for them!


Like most around the world the wedding season in South Africa runs through the warmer months of the year but there are a select number of weddings that take place outside of the season in Autumn and Winter. For those of you living north of us this may mean cold, wet weather and even snowy days and long chilly nights. In South Africa almost the opposite is true. Our winters are embarrassingly mild. With most days not far off European summer days. The evening temperatures may be low but during the day, the African sun is warm and energizing.

Lindsey and Hayley celebrated their wedding at Red Ivory Lodge, just as the leaves began to fall and the intense African sun pulled back a little for the long dry Winter ahead. Red Ivory is one of our favorite venues in Gauteng. Originally a modern home built into the hills above the Haartebeespoort Valley, it has recently found new life as an intimate, modern bush wedding venue. It's really special. The panoramic view of the valley, through the floor-to-ceiling glass which runs across the length of the venue, is EPIC!

When we met Lindsey and Hayley for a chat over breakfast in Cape Town they amazed us with the unusual story of how they met. Hayley told us how she picked up a copy of Runners World Magazine and just had to know who this fine man (Lyndsey) on the cover was. Lyndsey, leaning back in his chair in his signature smooth cat way, just gave us a smile as if to say "...and now, here we are getting married." It really is too awesome for words. So we'll leave it up to the pictures from their wedding day.

It was a real family occasion and one where even the friends at the wedding were like family. It's very easy to document a wedding like this as there really aren't any barriers. We were invited into every situation, and very often with a smile.

Congratulations guys. :)
