We were privileged to prepare a festive tree and table decorations for the AC Hotel Marriot in the V&A Waterfront.

Tygervalley Christmas Decor

We have been responsible for creating Christmas decorations for the 2014-2016 and 2018 Christmas Seasons at Tygervalley Centre. Tyger Valley Shopping Centre walked away with the prestigious Spectrum Award at the 2015 Footprint Awards when Udumo provided a refreshing and proudly South African approach to their festive décor in 2014 through a “Christmas in Africa” theme.

In 2015 we celebrated the Festival of Light, featuring various light installations incorporating traditional Shweshwe designs depicting the traditional Boabab Tree, herald angels and Christ in the manger, conveying the good news of Christmas.

In 2016 the partnerships with communities in Wallacedene and Paarl has signified the true meaning of the Good News Gospel! The 2016 project also includes handmade items produced by Westcliffe School in Bellville. Talented students with stars in their eyes were responsible for creating every star in Tyger Valley Centre! A heavenly host of angels were our inspiration for Christmas 2016. We used fabric, wire, lights and paper to create angels, wreaths and shapes to celebrate the Good news of Christmas. The angels theme also ties in strongly with the wonderful group of “angels” who assisted in creating the décor or 2016.

In 2018 we celebrated a Community Christmas which included influences by the many diverse communities who played a role in the heritage of Cape Town, such as the Dutch, Khoikhoi, Malay, British and Xhosa. As is the case with all our projects, the focus once again fell strongly on job creation and community involvement to produce the festive décor elements. Amanda van Zyl was the production leader and provided training to the women, stemming from Smartie Town in Paarl, who handmade the decorations. They have also once again involved the learners of the Westcliff School of Skills in Bellville in a technical capacity with wire work and soldering.
