Oh how I love Purple these days, so warm, royal, and inviting. And you know what they say about Purple, “Everything is better in Purple”. My clients for the day happened to be a group of very beautiful ladies, one being a childhood friend {Hi Jessica ;-)} who had requested me to style, cater and bake for their friend and Mom-To-Be, Gacheri’s surprise Baby Shower. 


The girls had settled on one of their houses and I loved that there was an enclosed patio which turned out to be the perfect spot for the set up. 


I had created a mood/idea board weeks before so I knew what I needed to get ahead of the event. I settled on white plates since they work well with any colour, white napkins and some gold napkin rings that just brought it all together elegantly. I am sure it’s a bit obvious how crazy I am about Gold but I find it quite striking and it tends to complement bright colours well. As for flowers, I actually hadn’t seen Purple roses before (Don’t judge, Hehehe) and was so elated when I came across them at City Market…..they brought life to the entire set up.


I had settled on a simple menu that would suit most people’s palate and that would be light but filling as well. It’s always advisable to do most of the prep work a day before so I had marinated the beef the previous night, assembled my Granola Parfaits and chopped the vegetables. 

Coconut & Turmeric Rice

Beef Stew

Creamy Macaroni Salad

Carrot, Apple & Raisins Salad

French Toast (soaked in ice-cream) 

Granola, Yoghurt and Fruit Parfaits


I settled for a Royal Velvet Cake (Red Velvet Cake but Purple instead of Red…hope that makes sense…Lol) to go with the theme colours of the days and frosted it with Whipped Cream Frosting. 

Well, that’s it. What are your thoughts on this? Hit or Miss? 🙂

Wishing you smiles, hugs and lot’s of Purple today and every other day!

    Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Appreciate it!

    Real players and also real games make gambling experience packed with thrill.
    Although most of the people think of war as a child’s card game,
    it is actually played in many casinos these days. But remember, reason for every tournament is always to finish the
    game with increased chips than your opponents if the tournament finishes.
