Maren's 50th Birthday

An opportunity to celebrate life is always one that we relish! So, when Maren approached us to plan her 50th birthday celebration at the Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden in Stellenbosch, we were beyond excited!

Wanting an intimate gathering for her closest friends and family on her special day; Maren also wanted it to be a glamorous affair to which her Guests could dress for. We set forth on planning said elaborate, cozy soiree with absolute fervor….

After months of planning and discussing, the day came in a heartbeat and guests arrived with bells! It was an incredible, warm evening in the Garden with just a slight breath of wind swishing through the trees which promptly died off like clockwork after 7pm. Johnny, Marius and the Slippery Spoon Team were on their best form as per usual and Guests enjoyed delectable Canapés as well as a custom Gin Bar stocked with Gin’s personally collected from across the globe by Maren and her Husband.  Guests then explored the Garden as they made their way to the beautifully set Pavilion with a long, gracefully curved dining table crowned in a magnificent hanging garden of foliage and bulbed white Tulips met below with masses of candles and graceful floral.

Whilst Maren’s Guests entertained her with special performances kept secret for months, there was laughter and many a tear shed! Thereafter Guests embarked on the 7-course Dinner Journey paired with some of Maren’s favorite wines from their Families private collection served by the ever present, and always professional, Hero Event Staff.

As the evening drew to a close, guests had one last glimpse of the Garden at night before setting off to the tune of yet another, special farewell song amidst laughter. An evening that was enjoyed by all!
