We had the honour of planning a special milestone in style with a grand theme of “The Roaring Great Gatsby” for a very special man Sandile  Zungu. We took the challenge head on, planning this soiree by transporting the guests to the glamour of the 1920’s. The party embodied everything of a time when lavish parties, endless streams of champagne and dancing was the order of the day. It truly was beautiful, with ladies in their glitzy flappers adorned with sequins, beads and feathers and dandy men in stripped suits and tuxedos.

On arrival guests had an opportunity to take pictures with the celebrant in front of a bespoke art deco Gatsby photo-booth, while sipping on champagne. Thereafter they were ushered into the most beautiful glass marquee decorated to perfection with abundant florals, feathers, and luxury furniture. It is said the devil is in the details, and the gold foiled menus completed the beauty of these elegant birthday tables.

Guests were treated to a line-up of entertainment that is beyond extraordinary. This began with a robust and captivating perfomance from traditional dancers. During the speeches and three course meal a thrilling 50 member choir and the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra shared the rhythm of jubilation through their musical talent. A quick location change and guests were transferred to a maze where a fashion show from the talented House of Ole took place. To end the evening a musical performance featuring songs from the celebrants youth was put together and guests danced until the early hours of the morning, with DJ Muntu on the decks
