Lunga Schoeman is the CSI Manager for The Shoprite Group and he isn’t even 30 yet. He is an inspirational man and when he asked me to plan his rooftop birthday celebration, I was too excited. I love birthday planning.

We planned a young, festive event that was a reflection of him, his friends and all they’ve achieved. The colour scheme was midnight blue with soft mint green and white. This colours played with the night skylights in South Africa’s breathtaking Mother City.

The food was Moroccan inspired and added to the playful feel we wanted to create. He’s review summed up our experience designing, planning and executing this event together.



You took what was a dream and a mash-up of ideas and turned them into a magical evening.

I didn’t have much, but you gave me the best. The deco was amazing, the food absolutely great, gifts and all the unique little details were all so amazing.

I thank you for the time and energy you put into it. Even more, than I did at times.

How you managed to crawl into the heart of my guests before and after the event also speaks of your wonderful personality.

Ndiyabulela, makwande nakuwe. Indlela yakho I khanye. (Thank you, may you prosper and the road ahead to be full of light)

From my heart and my friends,

Thank you.

Lunga Schoeman”
