I spent two years working in the CSI department for the Shoprite Group and when I left to start Kelly Kreates I thought my journey with them had come to an end. To my surprise, they asked me to plan and design their 2019 Supplier Awards – what an honour it was to be part of such a creative corporate event.

I worked closely with them to design every element and bring the event vision to life. Hazendal’s conference area is stunning but has limited natural light so we opted to bring the outdoors inside. An indoor tropical forest with beautiful soft candle lights and the striking South African Protea was the solution!

We surrounded the entire venue with proteas, delicious monsters, hundreds of candles and soft fairylights and worked with the talented Grand Botanist to produce a creative stage installation that truly brought the venue to life.

The guests could not get enough of the bowl foods prepared by the infamous Executive Chef Michelle Theron.

Again the Kelly Kreates team designed all the stationery and custom made gold stands to showcase the Award Nominees. It was a truly memorable experience – one that brought this gorgeous venue to life. We enjoyed every moment of working with this team on this corporate event.

Special thanks to the Kelly Kreates team and all our suppliers:
