The Theme

  • This theme mixes wood and natural fibres with good design and is perfect for a mom who likes all things simple yet elegant.
  • With a menu of breads and cheeses this is also ideal for a casual breakfast brunch.
  • Serve muesli and yoghurt and have loads of bread, muffins and croissants and something sweet for later...

DIY Decoration

  • Make ORIGAMI STARS to use as decoration on branches and on the table.
  • Photocopy pages from old books and cut the paper into perfect squares.
  • Make an incision at every corner towards the middle of the square, stopping 2/3's of the way.
  • Take every right side of the cut paper and fold towards the middle; a star will form.
  • Use a thumbnail or a pin with prestik at the back, to secure it and keep it in position.

The Activity

  • Arrange for a henna artist to paint guests hands and the belly of the mom to be.
  • According to Bronwyn henna during pregnancy is soothing and calming and believed to help bring about an easy birth and healthy child.
  • Mothers to be who are extremely anaemic should avoid henna or use it sparingly.
  • Always work with a reputable artist.
