Living The Lifestyle: Bubbly blooms

by

We wrapped up the last niQi Living Luxe Living The Lifestyle workshop for this season in Johannesburg, buoyed by the infectious energy of our guest presenters.

Participants were given the inside scoop on the wedding planning business by event coordinator Shamima from D’zigner Function Coordinators. The key word is budget and Shamima shared her experiences on how to manage the finances along with the frills. She was accompanied by Floral Artist Zaheera of Pollen Living Art who is fully fluent in the language of flowers. Her passion for creating living masterpieces was evident as she skillfully (and lovingly) wove flowers and greens into three spectacular arrangements and shared tips on how to prolong the life of cut flowers.

If you’ve met Fehmida Jordaan in person, you’ll know she is just as effervescent as some of the mocktails she mixes up. This lady is a bubbly charmer and entertained as well as she demonstrated how to create a decadent Iced Chocolate Hazelnut Latte and a Tri-Colour Capile Special. We are delighted to host Fehmida for another mocktail workshop on May 22nd. Click here for more details.

The ever elegant Rowena Saloojee took us through the steps to create a flawless face without looking painfully plastered and demonstrated ways to tie a chic but relaxed look into a headscarf.

Naqiyah’s tablescapes took black from indoor to outdoor using touches of papercraft and French charm. Layers of texture on both settings imbued the tables with a sense of rich and warm depth, perfect for evening entertaining as well as withstanding the bracing approach of winter. Giftbags on the indoor tablescape doubled up as guest favours and a paper source for the handcrafted medallions adorning the dressmaker doll centerpiece.

Our High Tea is testament to the axiom To Live Well Is To Eat Well and our participants don’t just leave us full on inspiration.
