Casa Mia Health Spa & Guesthouse hosts Ladies High Tea to celebrate birthday in fantastic style

OCTOBER 3, 2016

On Saturday, Casa Mia Health Spa & Guesthouse hosted a special ladies High Tea event to celebrate its 12th birthday with special guest speakers Pieter Swart, Dr Ilze Ritter & Dr Da-Niel van Zyl of RVZ Aesthetics, and Sue Hoppe.

The ladies were treated to Champagne and canapés, fascinating speeches, as well as exciting lucky draws.

The theme of the event was “Something old, something new, something blue.”

Suzette Meyer, Owner or Casa Mia Health Spa & Guesthouse said that it was lovely to be able to celebrate with everybody, old friends and new, and thanked the guest speakers for their informative speeches.

Pieter Swart is the Director of Marketing and Corporate Relations at NMMU and has received the Public Relations Institute of South Africa (PRISA) 2016 President’s Award for outstanding service to the profession of PR in June.

Swart is also a lifetime member of the national organisation, Marketing, Advancement & Communication in Education (MACE, and has also received the MACE President’s Award in recognition of his commitment and contribution to the sector.

Dr Da-Niel van Zyl & Dr Ilze Ritter founded RVZ Aesthetics when they met each other during their community service year at Elizabeth Donkin Psychiatric Hospital.

Whilst spending countless hours preparing for their Diploma in Mental Health, they started realizing how a person’s outer appearance can influence their mental well-being. Fascinated by this connection they started exploring aesthetic medicine and all it has to offer.

Sue Hoppe is a visual artist working in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, who also happens to be a happily married mom and granny and loves travelling and photography.

“I can get high on colour, I love expressing my reaction to what I see around me in bold loose brushstrokes and vibrant colours, sometimes abstract, sometimes not! My themes and the way I express them vary widely, but I am preoccupied with the plight of women and children in Africa, and a love for architecture and nature also feature often.”
