Lola’s just turned 8 years old but she knew exactly what she what she wanted for her birthday… a parrot-themed birthday Food Jam with twenty of her friends!

Lola and her parents moved to Cape Town from Italy one year ago, her parents started the most ingenious furniture design company based in Woodstock, called Leon at CCXIX together with two partners. Ilaria, (Lola’s mama) also runs the bistro at Leon with the best croissants in Cape Town (take with up on that), anti pasti and delicious pasta changing every day.

The thing is, we’re family, because Lola, Ilaria and Alberto planned on staying with us at my mama’s InAweStays apartments for one month, and ended up staying for eight instead before moving to their own house in Fresnaye.

Here’s to the best kids Food Jam ever! Thanks to Ilaria for being so super cool with ideas and Shadwick Southgate for the birthday cake.
