Frances van Aardt, a retired medical ICU sister has followed her dream, starting her own decorating business.

Having always had the passion for decor, she took the challenge head-on and Frances Hiring andamp; Draping Services has grown from strength to strength.

This respected businesswoman with a heart of gold, always goes the extra mile for her clients. Whether she adds beauty and glamour to a brand new bride, or making a matric’s farewell dance special before the big exams, or adding a touch of beauty to a funeral to soothe and make the funeral day special, Aunt Frances does it all.

Known to many as Aunt Frances, she gives that personal touch to events, almost like family, and that is what most people appreciate.

To her it is not just a business, it’s her passion and the fact that she can make someone’s day memorable brings joy to her heart.

From humble beginnings in Bloekom Street back to the present business at 109 Cannon Street, is indicative of a woman of experience, a woman respected by her community.

Frances also does a lot for charity by means of decorating functions free of charge. Something that is close to her heart is giving to less fortunate children. Especially educational items.

She thanks her family, friends, wonderful staff and clientele for their support
