<title>Salad Etc by Nici Bailes


When I retired from the wedding industry in 2015 after 20 years of styling, wedding planning and ultimately running a wedding PR company, I was so excited to have free weekends and a life.  But after 2 weeks of sleeping in, I woke up to the fact that I missed the hustle and bustle of chaos and needed an outlet for my energy ~ and missed my weddings and brides most of all!!!!!

And so Salad Etc. was born.  In collaboration with my crazy Italian foodie friend with a borehole, we grew a small farmstead and began making up edible baskets as both a talking point and practical centrepiece solution.

After many early morning markets {meeting the most interesting, green, self-sustaining and water wise people), we realised our forte was to do what we know best ~ functions!  So we set about sourcing relevant containers per function style and filling them with all edible and pretty greens and now provide our clients with something different as keepsake table décor.  We have such fun in pre function meetings discussing herbs, salad preferences {of which there are many!} and suggesting a personal touch.  Not the most obvious topic when discussing wedding décor but apparently happens to be a soothing outlet for most.

For any edible décor and general chat about Salad Etc, please call or send an sms/whatsapp to Nici on 083 267 2946 {with all your contact details) or mail nicilbailes@gmail.com.
