G.H. Mumm and its Master of Celebrations, Minnie Dlamini-Jones, hosted their spectacular New Year’s Day celebration, aptly named First Toast, to welcome the new year in style.

The event was held at exclusive lounge bar, The Bungalow in Clifton and attracted stylishly dressed guests honouring the ‘all-white with a touch of red’ dress code.

Celebrity guests included Reason and Loot Love, JR and Tshepi Vundla, Langa Mavuso, Nomuzi and Khanya Mkangisa. Other famous faces like model Sanele Xaba, Siv Ngesi, Da Les, Jimmy Nevis and bloggers Yolisa Mqoco and Sinovuyo were also spotted celebrating the arrival of a new year.

Maison Mumm’s vision to create a remarkable New Year’s Day atmosphere to usher in the new decade translated into a beautiful event experience. Scenic sea views, the mountain in the background, a glowing Cape Town sunset, beautiful people and world class hospitality service made a memorable impression and an undeniable call for this to become an annual event.
