Above left: “Malan’s shack” was the decor set-up of the treat ta­ble at the beach. Above: The Van As fam­ily. Malan with proud mom An­nal­ize and grand­mother Steph­nie as well as grandpa Tokkie and dad Deon. Left: Choco­late sea shells and per­son­alised party packs in buck­ets (they were jam-packed with good­ies in­clud­ing wa­ter guns) car­ried the beach theme through. Be­low left: The cake – built to re­sem­ble a sand­cas­tle – was made of vanilla and beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated with a lifesaver’s tube, a clas­sic VW bus, and fish. Bot­tom left: “Crab­mal­lows” are marsh­mal­lows dipped in white choco­late and food colour­ing. Be­low: Sprite was clev­erly dis­guised as “ocean wa­ter” in urns with a dash of food colour­ing to give it that sea blue hue. Bot­tom right: Wa­ter bal­loons, about 200 of them, made the party even more fun as both kids and adults had a good old-fash­ioned wa­ter bal­loon fight. The “Gone Fishin’” sig­nage, and all the other sig­nage, was per­son­ally made with love by mom An­nal­ize.
