GOOD LOOKS - Summer New Years Eve

new years eve for little ones

I haven't actually been thinking about New Years Eve too much, as I am way to busy planning Christmas Day, Family Day and a Summer Braai we are having next week - but after I saw these photos of Meri Meri goodies in action I thought it would be fun to combine their Carnival theme and Gold/Silver Themes to make a metallic and confetti themed kids table... Is it too OTT? Nah, one can never have enough confetti and gold!


UP TO GOOD - Behind the Scenes

have a gr8 day!

My little girl Zara turned 8 today, and just to follow on my little behind the scenes post here about my mini party plans, here is a quick pic I took of the set up. The photo is awful largely because every morning we wake up here in Switzerland in the dark and I get home in the evening in the dark too! But I just wanted to show you the background I did using my homemade garland and a Meri Meri Pinwheel set. Plus, I am giving myself a little pat on the back - I sent all the doughnuts to school today - and didn't even take a bite of one!


GOOD LUCK - Christmas Competition

hint, hint

Did you see our Christmas Competition earlier this week? Today and tomorrow are the last days to enter, so be quick and you could have an awesome Christmas hamper.

Vanessa (the photographer from this photo shoot) makes me laugh - here she proves that in just one shot we have as many as 40 (40!) In Good Company products! And it is no surprise that Vanessa actually owns 99% percent of them! V. is not allowed to enter, but maybe her pic will help you out a bit!

IN GOOD HANDS - Washi Tape Wednesday

washi the wall (a bit!)

Do you follow A Beautiful Mess? I feel like I have been under a rock as I only discovered them today! What a great blog - a new fav. And they shared this awesome idea for washi tape - so easy and yet so awesome!

GOOD LOOKS - Christmas Table Inspiration

christmas tablescapes

Even though we are having Christmas in summery Cape Town, I spotted these gorgeous photos on Apartment Therapy, and I am so inspired to do something similar for my Christmas Lunch tablescape - albeit possibly not so wintery...

1. Most of the tables have a "garland" of greenery down the centre, so I am definitely going to look to do something similar.
2.  Together with the greenery, I spotted pine cones, berries and even real fruit - so keen to add in something too.
3. It seems gold plate chargers are a must - (better get JHB to send some down to the CT shop for me). If you are in JHB you can hire these from our store for only R5 a piece. And I bought myself a Christmas pressie - gold cutlery!
4. Most of the tables in the photos don't have table linen or only a runner down the centre - it seems hessian or linen ones are popular. But as my wooden table is brand new I had my mom sew up a dark navy tablecloth and I found some plaid napkins overseas. (Check out our runners here for hire).
5. Last but not least, candles are a must and I think I am going to try and get some copper ones - fingers crossed @home or Mr Price Home have - thank goodness I was able to get some of these - but I think I need to get more...

UP TO GOOD - Zara's 8th Birthday Inspiration

8 is great!

Zara is officially turning 8 (eight!) on Thursday, so as her Owl Party was already two weeks ago, I thought a little mini family "celebration" is due come Thursday morning. I am still working on the actual plans, but so far I can say the décor is sorted (naturally!).

GOOD LUCK - Christmas Competition

christmas competition

I thought it would be fun to have a little competition today. Vanessa Lewis did the most amazing Gingerbread photo shoot and used lots of lovely things from In Good COmpany. In fact in this photo alone I can spot 10 items (new and old stock) from IGC. Can you? If you can - drop us an email with a list of all the items you see. The one with the most and pulled from a hat will win an IGC hamper of goodies worth R1 000. YAY! Good luck!

Competition closes Friday 19th - that way we can make sure you get your goodies before Christmas.
