Forty and Fabulous – is this you?

I dreaded turning 40 – I am not sure why. Does it mark the entry into middle age? Are we suddenly all grown up and responsible when we hit 40?

Once I turned 40, I realised it is a beautiful age. I do know that it’s an age of freedom where I no longer care too much what other people think. And given that most people live well into their 80’s and 90’s now, I don’t think it is middle aged at all.

The beautiful Chantal was spoiled by her family with a fabulous fortieth birthday – I think every girl should celebrate like this when she is 40.

Held in Franschhoek and beautifully planned and co-ordinated by the wonderful Ursula from Boutique Bridal Concepts – we loved this stylish soiree and the elegant flowers that we designed to go with it.
