So by now you all know that I love supporting local! Today I would love to introduce you to a very special local brand and business, called TableArt.
They manufacture a range of beautiful placemats, trays, glow light/lanterns, coasters and other accessories for entertaining at home or for functions and celebrations. My absolute favourite items are the gorgeous placemats and the best part about them (not only is that they are beautiful!) but they are also disposable! So no need to get upset if there are spills of wine or food, they are only intended for once off use – so simply put them into your recycling bin after dinner and then your table cloth or table is still perfectly clean!
Another awesome find is their glow lights – these are absolutely stunning and when I saw them on TableArt’s Instagram page, I knew I had to follow them and find out what else they sell. Below I have highlighted a handful of the lines in the range but you will definitely need to go onto their online store and see the multitudes of options available.
The products below come in a range of different floral versions and colours, so there is definitely something to suit everyone’s taste or colour schemes. All the plants and flowers in the designs are indigenous South African botanicals and all the products are made in South Africa, so please support local!
TableArt can be found at a selection of gift stores or you can shop directly on their online store here.
So here goes:
Coasters: Fynbos 6-pack – click here. Retails for R170.
