The annual Festive Ideas Market is a treasure trove of original and hand-crafted items for the home, garden, wardrobe and other luxurious treats. The market gets into an organic mood with the famed Peacock Palace packed with organic touches, greenery and plants, and recycled beauties.
Guests give their interior and exterior spaces a water-wise makeover with hanging plants and succulents from The Little Fat Plant, green sculptures from Andreas Topiaries, botanical art from William Schlechter, concrete planters from Simply in Concrete as well as Enamel at Simondium’s Country Lodge. Super Sprout products provide handy slabs ready with heirloom herbs and vegetable seeds. Other exhibitors include home-fashion, linens, pendants and leather bags as well as hand-crafted jewellery.
The deli solves all pantry problems for the holiday season with homemade goodies ranging from cookies and biscuits, fudge and brittle preserves to natural sweetness from Darling Sweet and Darling Honey, traditional biltong and chef Mynhard Joubert’s Christmas cakes. Food trucks, Colony Coffee, Wow Yummy, Italian ice cream and a wine bar are also available.
A dedicated children’s play area is available at the event.
