On Friday 5 November 2021, Erin’s closest group of thirty friends got together to celebrate her special 21st birthday. 

The party took place around the pool area on the grass, at Mitre’s Edge Boutique Wine Estate outside of Stellenbosch. 

Erin requested an informal picnic style set up with a bohemian look and feel and a blush colour scheme. 


Pallets were placed together to create a long table and cushions were scattered on top of neutral picnic blankets for guests to sit on. The decor consisted of rattan underplates, gold cutlery, bohemian-style crystal wine and champagne glasses, and pink plates and napkins. 

Pink dinner candles were placed down the middle of the table, in between the pretty flower arrangements, which were placed on top of a white linen runner. The flowers were done by the talented team at Flowers in the Foyer

Erin’s talented sister all the way in the UK designed the stationery, adding a personal touch to the event!

Rose gold 21 number balloons added a sparkly touch to the backdrop of the harvest table. 

Food & Drinks

A delicious spread of cold meats, local cheeses, homemade pates, fresh bread, and some sweet treats were available. The Baking Squirrel made the beautiful birthday cake for Erin. 

Guests enjoyed a refreshing welcome gin and tonic, which was pink, glittery, and floral. After taking a seat, they enjoyed a wine tasting by Mitre’s Edge. 

Some of Erin’s closest friends gave speeches and toasted the birthday girl with some bubbly. 

The lovely Megan from Risen Sun captured all the special moments during the course of the day. 

We hope Erin had a beautiful and memorable day celebrating her 21st birthday and will hold on to these memories for a long time!
