I am on a quest for pink. I have some friends coming over for lunch, and I want them to feel special.
Valentine's Day is coming up, and that's my theme for the lunch. I've got lots of hearts I've made over the years from left over scraps of fabric, buttons, and ribbon.
I also use these at Christmas-time on our Christmas tree, but they can also be used for Valentine's Day. When creating Christmas decorations, I try to make things that could be used other times of the year. You can call it laziness or cheapness, but I call it SMART.
I was on the lookout for all things pink, but I liked the contrast with the green. Pink always look better with a little green.
Here's a Christmas ornament I bought on clearance after Christmas.
It's a little silver frame that can be filled with a photo and hung on a Christmas tree. I pulled out some toile paper and cut out the figure of a girl, then put that in the frame. I also changed out the forest green ribbon, for some soft pink ribbon.
I added as much pink sweets as I could find. Good and Plenty candy is so pink and they taste better than I remembered. I also found pink, white and red M and M's. I put these candies in antique inherited lidded preserve jars. It's awfully hard for me to resist grabbbing a few as I walk by during the day.
Another pink goodie I found was a bag of Mother's circus cookies. They are pink and white, and covered in sprinkly goodness. Probably not the most nutritious, but they've always been a favorite of mine. I placed them in this inherited pink pressed glass bowl.
Oh this was fun, fun, fun. Are you decorating for Valentine's Day?
Coming up next - Valentine's Day cookies.
Here's a list of the parties that I visit on a regular basis. I might have shared this link at any number of these.
