“No man is an island – John Donne”
We know it sounds corny, but there really is no I in Team. This curated experience is only possible because we have incredible suppliers and people holding our hands. The following service providers made Pause August 2020 possible, we are beyond grateful to each and every one of you.
We would also like to do a massive shoutout to Dane, Bianca and Tula for being the most amazeballs flower fairies one can ever ask for. We appreciate you efforts more than you would ever know! We count ourselves lucky to have you in our life.
Landtscap is an amazing venue just outside Stellenbosch. This modern facade really served as the perfect backdrop. We love the exposed concrete walls, roof and the screed floor. The staff (Venue Manager Tammy) was absolutely amazing and they treated us and our students with so much care and respect. Nothing was too big or too small to ask. Visit them at www.landtscap.co.za .
Our students were treated with delicious food, snacks and drinks throughout the 3 days. Day 1 we had some yummy wraps with a lemon meringue for dessert. Day 2 we had some delicious burgers with home made chips and onions rings. Dessert was some chocolate pancakes. On day 3 we ended off with some comfort food, chicken pot pie! Dessert of course being a yummy chocolate brownie. Visit them at http://www.twochefs.co.za .
