im lucky to find these cute rabbits which i used everywhere i did my normal mad hatter styled cupcakes with all the usual stuff on them.
i had alot of fun doing artwork to pull in the theme!
These mini cupcakes were very simple for people to enjoy but i did make cute rabbit toppers to suit our theme.
i love vintage and i could no resist bringing in a few aspects of it like my little tea set and the cute handpainted cookies .
we pulled some elements onto the tables to take the theme through. i added lots of typical alice in wonderland quotes as you cannot have a madhatter tea party without them!

We were blessed to have a gorgeous garden venue and guests were requested to wear fancy hats (we were pleasantly surprised with the creativity of the guests).
The weather report promised rain, just after i took this pic it started to drizzle! we quickly covered up, thankfully 5 minutes later it was bright and sunny again (the joys of living in Durban) in the end we had the most gorgeous weather and loads of fun!
Besides loads of savory starters, a main course of savory rice and portugese braai'd chicken, amazing array of salads and cakes desserts we had this bar with some of our favorites.
Bor (a sweet and sour indian fruit which is mixed in a kind of syrup sugar and vinegar yum my fav) aamli sweets (another indian sweet called tamarind) lindt puffs, romantics, biscotti, homemade marshmallows, cake pops, nougat mini eclairs and more .
The guests enjoyed taking home treat bags from this table as we really had too much food lol
il post some yummy foodie pics soon!
flowers make everything prettier, we opted for bunches of hydrangeas,roses and carnations. (i normally would have never used carnations but bunched up they look really pretty and suited our themed perfectly) i would have rather had peonies but sadly the market had none!

i was asked by a sweet girl who found me on the internet to do her engagement for 20 people, i did 2 tables and a small simple candy buffet. she gave me free reign to do as i wish so i surprised her yesterday as she knew nothing of the colours details etc:) i did a coffee cake and some vanilla choc chip cupcakes as well and all the decor was items i collected or made up for her engagement. i really enjoyed doing it and my wonderful sister in law (who is down on holiday) helped me all the way:)
zainab of chilli chefs got married two months back. we designed this pretty vintage candy bar for the guests to enjoy. we provided yummy treats like lindt meringue puffs,biscotti,almond rocka,nougat,pop corn,macarons,cupcakes,mallows,candy and an array of scrumptious delicacies. at the end of the day all of it was gone which pleased us tremendously. we will upload more pics of the cakes and other details soon.
i hosted a going away tea party for my cousin she relocated to Abu Dhabi in August. i really miss her...
the food ,and desserts were by my cousins chillichocolate chefs and the cake n pops by me. i styled this using things i had around the house but kept it sweet and simple. i wanted my flowers to look like they have been gathered from the garden here which i why i did not get florist arrangements.
My Baby turned one and i decided to host a small family lunch for those who love my kids and I. I decided to keep the theme simple and elegant and focus on some little details. i chose a hot air balloon theme and kept the colours blues whites with hints of green. i custom designed paper hot air balloons which i hung from the ceiling with some cute fluffy white pom poms. i also designed a hot air balloon cake topper and used paper flags on the desserts. for the desserts i had a yummy coffee cake,mini chocolate eclairs,pecan tarts,chocolate balls,chocolate covered nougat and some yummy breath 'sweetners' romantics. i kept the desserts simple as i served ice cream as well as a full lunch. I love simple elegant designs which are not too fussy yet are equally pretty.
We were asked to set up a dessert table for the sister of Miss S.A india Sheina kiyara gokool. Sheina and her sister have the most amazing place in hillcrest and they host gorgeous weddings at their venue. The sisters went for stunning black and white with pops of colour as their decor and had fun elements like a ribbon curtain, birdcages, lots of bright flowers, and windmills to tie in the theme. We set up a pretty simple dessert table to go with their theme, we provided cake pops,mini cupcakes, cookies a birdcage mud cake with lindt chocolate ganache. The sisers had a seperate candy table with lots of yummy sweets to entice their guests. we decided to bring in our own fun elements to add to this table as the wedding had a relaxed fun feel to it.
The candy bar was asked to cater for a sweet little girls first birthday party, the party was hosted at the gorgeous Audacia Manors ascot room in essenwood. Due to the venue being so perfect Hannah's mum decided to keep it simple and let the venue's decor and garden set the scene. We used pretty pinks, sorbet colours with pretty prints and a cute little lala bird here and there. We provided a yummy two tier chocolate mud lindt cake, cookies,cake pops,mallows ,cupcakes and yummy macarons as the desserts. Chilli chocolate chefs provided divine canape's for the birthday as well.
