Creative & Operational Process

Once we receive your order, it immediately gets attended to by our hard working team. We start to manufacture custom items, put together the items needed from local suppliers, wrap your goodies and send it off via our courier the moment it's all ready for dispatch. Once your order leaves our office, we immediately notify you by sms and email to advise you of the tracking number and expected delivery date.

We trade as an online shop

  • This means we don’t have a physical retail store and only accept orders for all products in our catalogue via this website.
  • We stock our own range as well as products from a variety of suppliers, which means that some products are subject to lead times as its either custom made or subject to minimum order quantities.
  • You are able to shop by event type, search by colour or build a Wish List.
  • To buy, simply browse through our products, add the ones you love to your basket by either clicking the little lock with a plus at the bottom of the image or adding items to your cart.  Voila, ready for check out!
  • You will then be directed to a checkout screen where you can change your order, delete items, change quantities etc.

Happy with your shopping? Fabulous! Now choose a delivery option…

  • Door to Door delivery via our couriers, Dawn Wing & The Courier Guy. It’s the quickest and safest option; or
  • Post Office deliveries. It takes a few working days but it’s the cheapest option. We don’t recommend this option, especially on more urgent orders, but often this is the most affordable and sensible option for rural communities.

Don’t live in South Africa? No problem! Simply email us and we will get back to you with options and prices to your specific country.

Ready to proceed? Whohoo :-)
