I hosted a small tea party as a send-off for my mum who’s relocating to Cape Town.

My theme for the afternoon, “So Long Jo’burg, Hello Cape Town”, was framed by silhouettes of the Johannesburg skyline and Table Mountain and pulled together with shades of pink and brown in the design of the bunting, paper tents, labels and cupcake toppers.
