Established in 1994 – By Word of Mouth has built a reputation for producing the most polished events and parties in South Africa.

Food is of paramount importance to the team, and inspiration is gleaned from international magazines and extensive travel.

By Word of Mouth doesn’t stop at Food and Beverage. It offers a complete event management service, including flowers, décor, bar, waiters, hiring, a cookery school AND an exciting new venue. The By Word of Mouth team will guide you effortlessly through the process of discussing perfect location, magical colours, wines and music, even down to the tiniest petal placed on a napkin.

Their Staff

The staff are hand-picked for their dedication and expertise relating to the Catering and Event Management environment. Trained in-house to their exacting standards, they are always attentive, charming and quietly efficient. They never forget that they are there to serve and cook for you and your guests in a professional, courteous and friendly manner.

However seemingly impossible, By Word of Mouth will make it happen!

From the first call to the placing of the last butter knife, they will handle your wedding or function of whatever size. Their event coordinators are highly trained and motivated, preparing your event with inspiration, flair and an eye for current trends.


By Word of Mouth loves food; food that is fresh, natural, bright and colourful. They purchase the very best ingredients; and then blend them with skill and imagination to create unusual, stylish, mouth watering menus that tempt the senses and please the palate. Their team of chefs have a variety of skills and culinary experience. They relish the challenge of a spectacular formal banquet, as well as a relaxed dinner for eight; and they love to create fabulous food; whether it be an African Feast, a superb wedding dinner – or a good old South African Braai.


Each year By Word of Mouth travel around the world in search of the latest, most ravishing, beautiful and fun additions to their Hiring division for you to choose from. They have just imported chairs not seen yet in South Africa but incredibly popular in Europe and America. They offer an extensive range of coloured glassware imported from Europe and the Far East, not to mention their in-house range of unique and upmarket cutlery and crockery, that will set your occasion apart from the rest.

Their marquees are as simple as a tiny tent for tea or as a transparent cathedral under the African sky. They will build you what you want – on you balcony in Sandton, at your mansion on the Vaal or in your office car park. However seemingly impossible, they will make it happen!


Food and drink go together like “love and marriage”. Beverages should complement the theme of the occasion whether it is a Moroccan tent, a beach party or a traditional wedding in beautiful gardens. More importantly though, your beverage selection should compliment the style of food that you have chosen. Attention to this detail is not enough and one should compliment the fine selection with outstanding service and a supply that does not overindulge or underestimate.


At By Word of Mouth, flowers are always glorious; their designs and arrangements distilling and reflecting your ideas and tastes – whether contemporary or traditional, minimal or flamboyant.
