Can you believe it’s that time of the year again? I am so happy to share this nostalgic Christmas session with you all.
When Jana from MooiGoed approached me to do this shoot, I felt so incredibly honoured. She had managed to gather some of Newcastle’s most talented creatives to collaborate and share their work for this styled session.
For our Summer garden Christmas shoot, we used natural textures and elements with hints of lace and sweet-smelling, delicate flowers to bring the whole look together in a soft and romantic tablescape.
Koot, from Posh Nosh prepared a delicious meal for the occasion with the most flavoursome food served to the table.
The menu for the lunch included a starter made of pistachio biscuits with camembert brûlée, Rooibos infused gingerbeer gammon with green beans and sticky roast potatoes and a roast vegetable and ricotta quiche. To top it off, dessert was waffles served with an orange Cointreau and fresh cream and cherries. DELICIOUS!
Chantelle from The Pretty Box created the most amazing printables for each setting which included the words to Afrikaans Christmas carols.
Chantelle is a free-spirited, passion-driven creative who loves making pretty things.
I love how pretty things can cheer people up, and make them appreciate the beautiful things in life.
The incredibly talented Natasha from Chewz – Homemade Sweets & Treats made the nougat, to-die-for chocolate & coconut and mint flavoured macaroons and Christmas cookies. Chewz is a home based confectionary/ bakery business started by Natasha and her husband, Neil. While Natasha works her magic in the kitchen, Neil takes charge of the photography and marketing aspects. A match made in heaven, all while they juggle regular day jobs! Hetta is an extremely talented florist with a passion for floral design and styling. No doubt, her daughter’s talent stems from this zest.
Christmas is all about sharing, giving and spending time with those you love most. To spread this festive kindness, Chantelle, Koot and Hetta have decided to share their talents in giveaways.
