Provincial Goverment of the Western Cape


What a FAB evening it was.  Our simple but elegant set-up let you understand the true meaining that Less is More.  Black & white polka dot was the order of the day with a beautifull silver candelabra centrepiece. A  beaded white lampshade made the setting look classy and elegant and the red gel votive candles on the tables just represent plashes of red and bring it all together. The 250  guests from all over the Western Cape and some from Gauteng enjoy true West Coast hospitality from the staff and management of the Athene Conference Centre at Mykonos  while they were entertained with the song and music of Andre Combrinck 

Another sucessfull function with an extreme dedicated team just made you phrase the words
"Every Event is Magical !"

4 Special Forces, Masked Ball - Club Mykonos - Langebaan

Glitz and glamour with a old world venetian charm !   The guests were all dressed in ball gowns and we even spotted a lady with a vintage white hairdo just like the old times back in the 1700's when extreme lavish parties were the order of the day in rural castles.  That is just what we have done with the conference hall at Mykonos. We create a banqueting hall in a castle.   Complete with crystal chandeliers in the roof and huge gold framed paintings of the regiments colours against the walls. We even put up a few masks to complete the theme.
The tables were beautiful decorated with a green leaf tablecloth, gold candelabra and vintage beaded lampshades and deep red rose floral arrangements in a vintage gold bowl.  The deep red taffeta tieback let you think of the sash important military people have worn in the past. The table number even repeat the mask theme and the soft cream wall drapings just enhance the whole venetian theme.  The photo corner in the foyer was just as  amazing as the hall itself and was decorated in shades of gray and black with huge silver masks, silver candelabra and even a red carpet.  A stunning function it was and a true showpiece of what we do best.  To create, to satisfy and to be proud of our creative talents.  Congratulations to the team on a job very well done !

The Senior Workshop on International Rules Governing Military Operations was recently held at the Military Academy in Saldanha and was attended by 60 countries from all over the world and we was so fortunate to be part of this important Red Cross International function.  We did a simple but table elegant table centrepiece for the weekly dinners with a black tablecloth, and napkin embellished with a African Beaded Napkin ring and this detail was repeated on the Ndebele Hat.  In the hat we used our National Flower the King Protea together with succulents and fynbos.  We also repeat the beaded detail on the menu's.

The Gala evening we went all the way and wow the dignitaries 
with African wildlife, masks, shields with spears, glass and crystal.
The guests entered on a red carpet with gold and black stanchions and was welcomed with traditional African shield and spears before entering the first entrance hall decorated with two large golden columns with Lion heads on top with beautiful plants and black draping.

When they entered the cocktail area and the main entrance hall the camera's came out and didn't stop clicking until the main event was announced.  Here the guests was surprised with a life size elephant and rhino statues nestled between the most beautiful plants while sipping on sherry.  

The main entrance was etched off with two huge elephant tasks leading the guests to the main hall that was decorated with traditional African masks with soft cream and gold undertones.  The huge trumpet vase with King Protea arrangements with dangling crystals pick up the soft warm light of the candles on the crystal candles sticks and enhance the ambiance created with 5 arm crystal chandeliers to.   The guests was treated on traditional African food like Mealie Pap, Tribe & Trotters en almost 35 more delectable dishes prepared by wonderful staff of the Academy.
