Swimsuits & Sweet Surprises - Our Beach Living Festive Table

Swimsuits & Sweet Surprises - Our Beach Living Festive Table

Are you off to the beach these hols? Or are you being festive at home? Either way, we hope you’ll catch some of Château Gâteaux faves with our beautiful seaside-inspired festive table. The beach conjures up feelings of the sun on your back, sand between your toes; sounds of the surf and gulls calling overhead; ice cream, long walks, sunsets, playing bat and ball, swimming, catching waves and collecting shells. Enjoy swimsuits & sweet surprises this holiday season by transporting your guests to the sea by seating them at your beach themed festive table – let’s go.

6 Piece Mini Cake Collection


Gather your collections – order your 6 Piece Mini Cake Collection and have it ready and waiting in your freezer for your festive day. Remember to order soon while stocks last through our Château Gâteaux online shop or pop in and pick up your collection from one of our nearby stores. Our 6 Piece  Mini Cake Collection includes six small creations that are huge on flavour – Belgica Caramel Tart, Black Forest Cake, Passionate Lemon Cheesecake, Cookies and Cream, Salted Caramel Baked Cheesecake and Double Decker. Wow, you can’t go wrong with this sensational selection – something for everyone!

The underlay for your table should replicate pristine beaches – white and cream will do it. Now you need baubles – some clear ones, some white ones, and maybe a few creamy ones. Make sure they are super shiny to make your table glitter and glow. 

Stunning seashells wash up on our South African beaches – cowries, turbans, pansies, pumpkins, fans, etc. Shells have been used decoratively for over 100 000 years, mainly in the form of jewellery. Small shells or pieces of larger shells were perforated and strung to make necklaces. As far back as the seventeenth century, they have been used to decorate doors, trinket boxes, and embellish buildings. 

In the past, shells were also used as money which consisted of whole or partial seashells worked into beads – the shells were known as money cowry. Shell jewellery is still popular today, with beautiful pieces created by designers. So, your beach-themed table will be on trend, giving a fresh, crisp whoosh of the ocean.

Choose shells from those you or your children have picked up on previous visits to the beach or purchase from a shell shop. Use plain white tableware, select sprigs of greenery that mimic ocean plants, and you are good to go. Place your 6 mini taste-sensations on a serving platter and sprinkle with raspberries and chocolates. Position your platter of treats centre stage to complete your beach living festive table!

Pop the corks and enjoy your time at the beach. Château Gâteaux, your helping hand in making holidays happy.
