For this week’s Pretty Blog DIY, we show you how to make the easiest Valentine’s decor to spruce up your home - it’s sure to make the apple of your eyes smile! And it is oh so easy - all you need is some scrap paper, scissors and string (as well as a dash of crafty love!). Visit the full post here.
Today at Seven Swans, we are dreaming of the pure simplicity of bright white against an unpretentious ocean. Simple florals, decor with history, no fuss wedding gowns and bare toes. Ah! Bliss!

We just loved Tara’s initial email telling us about her fun and relaxed wedding. Think, vintage Alice in Wonderland type wedding dress, a thrift store tie for Jaco, bursts of colour in the beautiful Wilderness area and uncomplicated details such as airplants and succulents. So we created this simple and super cost effective invitation that still has all the KAPOW factor to perfectly reflect Tara & Jaco’s special day. Hope you like it as much as we do!
We have been working on the cutest wedding invitation for Izelle & Dirk who is getting married in February at the beautiful Lynton Hall in Pennington on the south coast.
Since Izelle comes from Durban, she wanted the invitation to reflect all the south coast hotspots, almost like an activity guide for her guests who are mostly flying up from the Cape to attend. Her palette is natural, yet elegant, printed on recycled paperstock and tied together with custom made twill tape. I just love how the big tree as main element subtly refers to the awesome surroundings and ceremony venue.
This is one wedding filled to the brim with lovingly put together details. We love it!
