NURTURING YOURSELF WITH NATURE
100 Beautiful Experiences
Today marks Spring Day and we’re kicking off 100 Beautiful Experiences with four floral experiences you can access in our neighbourhood to celebrate the change of season. Being able to introduce plant life into our homes is one of nature’s greatest gifts to us.
Located at the Oranjezicht City Farm (open weekends) at Granger Bay, Folha is a tropical paradise of greenery. From ficus plants and delicious monsters to fishbone cactus and dragon scales, this is an experience of foliage at its best.
Because Opus is tucked away in the Silo District, discovering it is like finding a hidden gem. Its range of unusual indoor plants – from Swiss cheese and red rubber plants to lucky hearts and twisted lipstick – is complemented by a variety of hanging plants growing in kokedama (handmade moss balls).
3. Caroline Fine Flowers
Caroline Fine Flowers is hard to miss in Victoria Wharf, with buckets of seasonal blooms (think ranunculus, peonies and sunflowers) spilling out into the passageway. Pay per stem and create your own beautiful bunch, or choose one of the towering orchids to brighten up your days beyond spring.
4. Mammas Flowers
Mammas has been part of our Waterfront family since we opened, making it four generations strong! Its location at Entrance 9 (below Clicks) means you can grab a joyous bunch of flowers as you exit. The king proteas here are exquisite, but you’ll also find tulips, fresias and a host of other sweet-smelling blossoms.

After the success of 100 Beautiful Things, where we celebrated creativity, compassion, ingenuity and resilience, through projects, products, ideas and experiences from around the country, we’re bringing this idea of celebration closer to home. Through 100 Beautiful Experiences, we’ll be looking at incredible moments and delights that are available right on our doorstep. Photographed and illustrated by a group of young South African talents, many of our experiences are unique to our hood and can be found nowhere else on the planet!
Every visit to the V&A Waterfront is an opportunity to discover a different part of the city, learn about our heritage, source the best products, dine on the most exquisite fare and connect with friends and family in a safe and happy environment. While we’re only sharing 100 Beautiful Experiences with you, we know you’ll find many more each time you visit, and look forward to hearing of your experiences too.
