Think Pink to cure the Winter Blues

For some crazy reason, I am in love with "pink" right now.  Especially, the blushy tan version of pink!  So I decided to re-do my pastry stand on the island with pink, especially perfect for upcoming Valentine's Day.  I layered it with some gold  vintage pieces from my stash of goodies.


 
Costco had these beautiful pink ranuculus bunches this weekend and I couldn't resist!

 
I love their little faces. So ruffled!  so very perfect!


Found these adorable pink lemonades at World Market last week!
 


Little gold sherbets just waiting for a splash of Strawberry Creme Liqueur.


These pink champagne biscuits are so pretty and fun to dip in champagne.



Gold ramekins just waiting to be filled with a delicious bread pudding.
 
 

 
I found this wonderful Pink Pamplemousse Rose from Cartron. It tastes like fresh squeezed grapefruit juice.  I am thinking it will be delicious in a salt rimmed glass over ice.  Maybe I'll find pink salt!



Pink peppermint marshmallows from Butter.  Ready for hot chocolate.
 


 
 
The most amazing strawberry jam you will ever taste.
 



 



Strawberry Creme Liqueur-  chilled and garnished with fresh strawberries.  Could be very pretty!



Looks like I need to have a "pink" party.  Valentine's is coming soon- maybe I'll plan a dinner party.

I have been thinking "patisserie stand" since I first met you! LOL! I have looked all over for one and they don't seem to exist anymore...even on 1st Dibs! I have decided I will make my own. I think I have an idea!
I hope they have pink tulips at the grocery store today!

It sure is helping my winter blues too. The hues of pink are lovely and the rose lemonade makes me dream of summer. Thank you. ~Amy

I'd love for you to come visit me at Pinehurst Cottage. Journey with us in the renovation of our vacation cottage in Pinehurst, NC.

Pink is my very favorite color, and the color that is least prevalent in our home since it freaks my husband out. :-) My dressing room is the sole exception to the "No Pink" edict around here, and I can just imagine a bar set up in there with all of these beautiful little accouterments! Hmmmm....now my brain is spinning and I'm thinking about a billion miles a minute!!!!! Love those gold ramekins, too! I've never seen them in a metallic like that!
