Kamers Vol Geskenke!

Today I drove to Lourensford Wine Estate where Kamers vol geskenke holds their annual festival. For those who are new to this brilliant concept, please read the write-up of Kamers on their website – I quote a description directly:

Kamersvol Geskenke is a five day long inspirational and extraordinary happening of exclusive, hand made products, hand picked stalls selling exotic deli foods and designers creating beautiful spaces. It is a celebration of creative living and, as the name already suggests, offers the public rooms filled with gifts, innovative concepts and creative stimulation. The success of Kamers speaks for itself. In seven years of time this festival has grown from 40 suppliers and 400 visitors in 2003 to 11 000 visitors and 150 suppliers in 2009. Kamers is undoubtedly the biggest creative gift happening in the Western Cape. But it is even more than that. It is a lifestyle. An inspiration. An empowerment project – serving the community with hands full of ideas and creativity.

I specifically visited Kamers, not only for some inspiration, but also to support Karla Oettler from Absolute Weddings & Events, who launched her Deli Brand : “Absolute Delish” ! I have had the honour to work with Karla on several occasions, and launching her brand has been a special experience for me as I am so familiar with the food industry.

Toast added some flavour to her exhibition by creating canvas banners, printed paper menu’s, and small signage tags around the stall.

I had to order a “Lemon Zester/Crusher”, as it sounded so refreshing as it was already scorching hot in Somerset West at ten in the morning!It was – nothing but – ABSOLUTE DELISH!

A Toast to Karla and her fantastic, fresh venture!
