This is our Mothers Day celebration in Ladybrand, South Africa a lot of people were invited to this event/party. Close to 80 people if i had to guess.
Decoration wise, there was not much to do as we didn’t have enough time and where we stay it is really limited. So we improvised as you can see below.
We went to Bloemfontein earlier during the week to go and order 50 Carnations so that each and every single mother will get on Sunday. We thought only a flower was a little too plain so we bought some chocolate and ribbons to tie one individual packaged chocolate to one flower.
Everybody seems to be enjoying each others company
Now below are where the actual work was put in, had a total of 4 braai stands. Most people came to the house the same time so we had to work our backsides to keep up to the guests requests for food lol
The braai meat, beef, lamb, pork and chicken had to ordered from the butchery a few days earlier because on Sunday the butchery is not open, and also worried that if we bought on Saturday, there won’t be enough with what we need.
We started at 11am which guests started arriving and went through the night until like 11pm. Once the sun went down we moved inside as it was starting to get cold. By dinner time there were only a few of us left, so for dinner we were about at 1 round-table and we had regular home cooked food.
For this year’s Mother’s Day we bought mum an Apple Watch, because a few days earlier while we were a the iStore she was looking at it and according to us she was quite interested. We bought the Rose Gold with the Pink straps 42mm size since the text on her iphone is zoomed-in, so a bigger watch surface is probably the best choice.
