Harriet – 40th Birthday Celebration in the Forest

Wellington - Pop-up event

When Harriet contacted [kraak] to plan her 40th Birthday celebration she wanted to be just as surprized as the rest of her guests. She arrived in Cape Town, all the way from Rustenburg, with 22 of only the closest family and friends – not knowing where or what will happen… [how is THAT for trust]…

Harriet wanted something CRAZY and special for her 40th.  She referred to the first wedding we did at DIE WOUD in Caledon and said that as long as she has something in line with that she will be happy.  We went all out and created a mystery party for all the guests visiting all the way from Rustenburg.  Guests received a digital invite to meet at Bosman Family Vineyards at 18h30 on the 6th of February 2016.  When they arrived they were welcomed with an MCC tasting by the Bosman team.  After a tour through the historical cellar, each guest received a map with directions to the mystery space where the party will be.  A classical guitar welcomed the guests before they took a seat at a formally set table decorated with chandeliers, fairy lights and earthy floral detail.  Johnny and Marius from Slippery Spoon Kitchen prepared a 5 course menu from their satellite kitchen…  Ilse de klerk Photography captured everything to perfection…have a look and enjoy!
