The House of Arums - For The Love OF Gardening

The House of Arums - For The Love OF Gardening

The love of gardening and having fun being creative with flowers became my existence. Growing up on a Karoo farm, having the freedom of a huge garden had been my childhood.

Living on a farm in Malmesbury with two farm gardens, planted with all the foliage that the climate could nurture, had to develop into a love and passion for flowers and foliage. My favourite tree being the Londen Plane tree, with the most beautiful leaves, dressing up each spring in a beautiful lime green coat for summer. Gardening developed into an industry doing the local weddings and functions of friends and clients.

Moving to Melkbosstrand on the West coast, made me realise how privileged my life on the farm had been. But with what the sea climate allows green fingers, I am still having fun with flowers, sharing my experience through floristry, wedding and corporate flowers.

Every day sharing flowers with everyone who enjoys flowers through their homes. Wedding flowers is my passion, to see a plan and creative ideas coming together for a memory of a life time, is so fulfilling and exciting. Creative brides are the ultimate, together we present an original ambience and atmosphere.

The [W]holistic Co. Spa - A Holistic Sanctuary Of Wellness & Relaxation

The [W]holistic Co. Spa - A Holistic Sanctuary Of Wellness & Relaxation

We had the privilege to attend the launch of Cafe Li and The [W]holistic Co. Spa at the beautiful C La Vie Luxury Accommodation.


The [W]holistic Co. Spa 

A Holistic Sanctuary Of Wellness & Relaxation. An elegant room with soft lightening situated next to the beautiful pool. Clients arrive earlier to relax in our in-house Cafe, Cafe Li, that over looks the beautiful ocean, Table Mountain and Robben Island. 

We also specialize in small group spa bookings and can design a spa package just for you. We are a day and overnight aesthetic spa.



The [W]holistic Co . Spa was founded during lock down level 4 of the corona virus by Jana Louw when all top spas had to close and the wellness industry were unable to function under normal conditions. The company started off as a mobile concept in collaboration with other professionals within the spa and beauty trade to support each other through the world pandemic. It was created to promote job creation and unity.

About the Founder and Director

Jana is a well known internationally qualified aesthetician that has been working within the spa, wellness and beauty industry for approximately 19 years. She has obtained her Itec, Cibtac and Cidesco qualifications. During her foundation period of building experience she worked onboard Disney Magic Cruise liners and at a few other top spas while free-lancing as a stylist and make-up artist on both local and international film and still productions and completed catalogue work for top fashion labels. She wanted to build up knowledge and experience within the aesthetic medical field and worked alongside world renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeons within the new Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital where she worked with laser, fat freezing and radio frequency devices and tested the efficacy and results. During this time she also treated patients with a radio frequency face and body micro-needling device called The Profound (as seen on Dr OZ) in and out of theater. She worked at Dr Maresky’s (double American Board Certified) practice and treated his patients prior to and post operations to tighten and strengthen the skin with a combination of medical grade micro-needling and ZO Skin Health chemical peels and soon after she became the South African master trainer for [Comfort Zone], /Skin Regimen/ and Decleor Paris, providing world class training to award winning top spa’s through out South Africa. When lock down happened The [W]holistic Co. was founded as an opportunity to use her knowledge and expertise to uplift the industry, to promote job creation and to treat clients with the main treatment focus on destressing, detoxification and ant-aging. This started as a mobile concept that has grown into a spa concept.


“My passion for science-based formulas drives me. I only select and partner with wellness partners and brands that share the same philosophy and vision. I love botanical extracts, pure ingredients and amazing delivery systems. It is important that clinical trials has been done and that it can be backed up. I want to see results! With so many different professional skincare brands and false advertising on the market it is difficult to choose. I do a lot of research before I choose professional brands to partner with. Science and Technology is what truly makes a brand phenomenal and we appreciate the expertise and dedication that is behind the development of each product. We use only the best quality products available while also being conscious about the environment. We do things differently at our spa, our concept is unique as we focus on slowing down aging ” Jana Louw (Founder and Director)

Our [W]holistic Approach

We believe that by considering the WHOLE [Mind, Body and Soul] combined with our expert treatment plans and homecare, one can successfully slow down the signs and effects of ageing. We combine medical grade products with world class treatments and a home care treatment plan to reach your ultimate skincare and wellness goals. Taking great care of your skin, mind, body and soul is important to us. 

We try to support local as much as possible and keep our pricing competitive. We strive to be the best we can to create a positive change [and hopefully a ripple effect] in all the lives that we touch.

Bulb Flowers - A Light That Sparks a New Beginning

Bulb Flowers - A Light That Sparks a New Beginning

Bulb is a light that sparks a new beginning. A bulb is at the heart of a plant laying dormant, sleeping until the right moment comes for it to awaken and grow. Defined by multiple things, all of which anticipate an openness to change, growth and possibility.

Zahn Rust - Founder and Owner

Zahn Rust was born in Cape Town and completed her studies at Stellenbosch University in 2012 , graduating with a masters degree in Fine Art. She spent 6 years working with Okasie in Stellenbosch where she fell in love with flowers. After completing – years in the industry she decided it was time for her to launch her own company, and the initial seed for Bulb was planted. A few fun evenings with friends and family followed and in January 2018 Bulb officially sprouted.

“Working with flowers as an artist and creative, I see each colour and stem as I would the paint on a palette. Bringing me immense peace and joy as I work to create the perfect floral arrangement for your special occasion. I hope to share my heart, creativity and truth with every person I encounter on this journey.” – Zahn Rust, founder of Bulb

Kelsey Le Voy - Brand Manager

Kelsey has been part of the Bulb team since day one and officially became our Brand Manager in 2019. Having been friends for years it was an easy fit and made weekly Bulb meetings a lot more fun! Kelsey’s background includes all things creative from being an amazing baker to a social media expert with exceptional organizational skills.

Lynn Shapiro and Zahn from Bulb Flowers collaborated on this Luxe Boho Elopement styled shoot. Inspiration came from current wedding trends which includes the niche of bohemian with added luxury touches. . Dry blooms combined with fresh cymbidium orchids; bespoke wedding gowns; rich warm colour palettes and all set in the industrial magnificence of The Old Tannery in Wellington. All the contrasting elements made for a magical scene and inspiring photographs.

The farm Contreberg was established in the early 1800’s to support passing ships of the then Dutch East Indian Company producing fresh crops and grazing for animals. The farm remained in the Pretorius Versfeld family over the last few decades before the now 352 ha was subdivided and entrusted to the Pretorius family in 2016.

Located a mere 60 km from Cape Town, the endless rolling hills, vineyards, lawns, gardens and hidden paths with several private corners and seating areas proof a timeless and relaxed backdrop for capturing your special moments forever. With the option of a Garden wedding or cosy Barn venue reception, our personal touch will ensure your every need is catered for as you would imagine.
The manor house was built in 1818 and extended in 1888, but partially damaged by a fire in 2018, before completely being restored by 2019. 
You can stay in this Cape Dutch Manor house which perfectly blends with modern features for your comfort. The House is nestled in the finely manicured garden surrounded by Oak trees and breath-taking mountain and valley views. The Oregon Pine floors, woodwork, door frames, doors and shutters are carefully kept in its original way and gives this house a special feeling of warmth, comfort, tranquillity, and memories all around, reminding you of the rich history. 
The manicured garden has become legendary with wedding couples who wish to have their pictures taken on the farm or use the garden as a venue for your special day.  
The farm boasts a wedding-venue capacity of 120 people in the "Old barn", with the rustic feel, yet modern décor touch you have always fantasised of. The venue has a bar, kitchen and cold room facility. Let us help you with selecting your service providers from a list of experienced people and companies to make your dream day seamless.
