I love hanging lanterns in trees and when I saw this beautiful image I thought how gorgeous it is that they have mixed up all sorts of lanterns in one tree - I love this!! Usually I hang the same sorts of lanterns in one tree but from now on I am going to start mixing it up a bit. I have a beautiful pink/yellow Frangipani tree at home which I often hang lanterns in when we are having a dinner party outside. I can't wait for our next dinner party - I am going to do the Frangipani tree just like this!! Thanks once again Sarah Kaye for the inspiration!!

My Pink & Yellow Favourites

These 2 images above are my favourite images which emerged out of Pink & Yellow Week this week. It's funny that they are both via Jo at Desire to Inspire. I think she knows me all to well!! The bottom image is from De Gournay. I just love this particular De Gournay wallpaper, it's so bright and fresh and beautiful!!

I love Hawaiian quilting and so I had to include this pink and yellow Hawaiian quilted cushion cover in Pink & Yellow Week!! Have a look on Ebay for some great Hawaiian quilts and cushions.

Pink & Yellow Notecards

Look at these beautiful hand made single edition screen printed notecards from Port2Port Press. I loved them so much I bought them but go and have a look at all of the other goodies at Por2Port Press as her beautiful stationery is to die for and the best thing is that she never repeats a design.

Audrey Coggins from the fantastic blog Bijou Kaleidoscope sent through some images of the much talked about Semiramis Hotel in Greece which was designed by Karim Rashid. Look carefully at the picture above and you will see some yellow chairs on the exterior terrace.

Emily's Pink & Yellow Party

It was my friend Sally's 5 year old daughter's birthday party today and we decorated the table in pink, yellow, aqua and lime green. It was SO gorgeous!! I actually had the tablecloths made for my son's 3rd birthday party a couple of years ago and we just sewed some gorgeous floral frills on for Emily's party today. Nothing like a bit of recycling!! We made the napkins in pink and white stripe which I tied in knots and then I placed them on each plate. The plates were some gorgeous painted tin plates which we only got a couple of days before the party from one of our wholesalers!! I think a fun time was had by all, especially the birthday girl!!

Isn't it wonderful that these pics work so well in Pink & Yellow Week!!
