Think Pink!


Thanks to Tristan from Enchanted Revelry, Karen at Scrapbook of Inspiration and Beverly from How Sweet the Sound, I have been inspired to try something new. Every Saturday is a delight chez eux where you can bask in a little pink frivolity, fluff and fun. I am going to show you some of the things that I find enchanting, kissed by this sweet hue of the color palate. But first, click on the video below and let the wonderful Kay Thompson tell you what to think:




Now that we're in the right frame of mind , here are a couple of my favorite pink things:

The smooth texture of pink fondant for special occasions


the daintiness of tea accompaniments



and the cozy establishments where we can sit on the terrace or in the garden and enjoy our favorite tea



in dainty little heart-shaped tea cups.


Now let's go inside and sit down and feel the elegance of pink in the great salon



and maybe they will let us order a glass of pink champagne

and put on beautiful pink diamond tiaras and feel like queens.

Now let's go to the fashion show and see what delicious pink things we can wrap ourselves in. The beautiful Audrey Hepburn made pink even more lovely with her gentle spirit

and she wore it well. Whether it was a sporty look she was after,

a soft, flowing skirt

or a bright and elegant gown,



she wore pink with style and grace



like a queen.


Now it's time to get our bags


and get back to the castle


and dream of fairy tales in pink...

Have a peaceful, magical and uplifting weekend my friends and visit Tristan, Beverly and Karen to get a taste of pink in their neck of the woods!

A la prochaine, Anita

Bonjour Anita!
I am definitely thinking pink after that - thank you. I will have a glass of champagne rose, the salon, a few macarons (oui!) and that bag... I love that bag.

Have a wonderful long weekend.
Hope you're feeling better - I think I have your sore throat but I can still be heard ;)

It was so much fun to talk to you today! I'm so glad you called. I wonder what happned with the code? It looks like it multiplied itself and went bezerk! I laughed my head off at you saying, "Now that we're in the right frame of mind three times." Blogger can be a strange creature. I have been having the hardest time posting tonight. It's moving my post all around and now it's not even registering that I posted on Google Reader. Oh, well!

Love you!
Nancy

Hey Cuz, You just need to go into the "Edit HTML" of your post and remove all but one of the videos. Somehow you copied it in too many times.

Otherwise, love the post!

What a wonderful post! A favorite movie, a favorite desert (cake), and the very wonderful Audrey! Yep, I believe we're all thinking pink!!

Sorry about the blogger issues. Blogger was making its own decisions on my font styles and sizes tonight. They were all over the place! I finally went into the html editor and entered the font myself.

Happy Pink Saturday!

I have a pink castle, all covered in dew, I have a pink castle and an invitation for you.

Anita, this is a treasure to be part of! Pinks, Saturdays, Princesses, What could be better. I dedicate my post to you this morning! Blessings and thanks for the invite, I could smell the rose oil and lemon on the corners and just feel the embossed delicate lettering from your castle/cottage stationary, lol. Blessings and light, Amy

The Victorian Parlor said...

Oh my! All of that pink is amazing! The pink castle at the end is definately the best (although the yummy treats were pretty tempting:). I believe I could handle a glass of pink champagne with some pink cookies in the pink parlor in the pink castle:)

Have a blessed (and pink) day!

Bonnie said...

Hi Anita, happy PINK Saturday. I love the new look of your blog!Have I ever mentioned I live in a PINK house? Yes, a little PINK 1938Spanish bungalow. Stop by for tea and PINK macaroons sometime real soon okay?

Anne Marie said...

I absolutely loved this post~

Good Morning Sweet Anita~

This pink posting was just lovely. I am swooning over all the pink. That is totally my favorite color.

Have a restful and creative weekend my dear.

Silke said...

I feel bathed in pink and those pictures of Audrey Hepburn (my all-time favorite actress) were the icing on the pink cake! Thank you!! :) Silke

Deborah said...

Delightful, De-Lovely! Thank you so much for the movie clip!!! My beloved Mommy raised us on old musicals. **swoons** Audrey Hepburn is perfection. Wonderful post!!! **blows kisses** Deborah

Grace said...

Anita,

Sadly I don't really have a garden. Since we rent, I would hate to invest in something we may lose in just a few years. But we *do* have an enclosed patio on the side of our apartment, and I hope to add a little bit of greenery and statues back there to make it seem more like another living space.

Ooooh Macarons. I've always wanted to try those, but never have.

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Hi Anita, Love your new pink blog! Have a wonderful "pink" Saturday!

Anita,

Those cakes look so yummy! Happy Pinkday! :)

Charli and me said...

Dear Anita, I think pink just might be my new favorite color. I loved the video. Those cakes, cookies, pink houses, the tea set, pink clothes, and pink champagne have me just tickled pink ♥ What a great post! I hope you are having a happy weekend.

Jacque said...

for some reason, my favorite pic is Audrey in that hat and the pink tea cups turned upside down!! One time I painted all the ceilings in my entire house Pearl Pink (Martha Stewart paint color) and I got more compliments on that than any other one thing that I have ever done in my remodeling/redecorating experience. So, that was my first introduction to using PINK and I've tried to use is in different ways since. It's something about the way other colors bounce off it, dont you think?? Great post!

KarenHarveyCox said...

Anita,
This is the best Pink Saturday post ever. You are brilliant at putting together wonderful posts, but this takes the pink cake! I am so glad that you are joining Pink Saturday.

You are amazing Anita, and so is this delightful post.

Happy Pink Saturday,

Karen

KarenHarveyCox said...

P.S. I don't know what some of the comments meant about your post. It must have been fixed. They should have also mentioned how brilliant your post was, none-the-less.

Rose said...

Warm greetings Anita,
Thank you for stopping by and saying hello! Yes, I am a sculptor of whimsical fantasy beings. With plenty of inspiration around our home from my children. While doing some research on crowns last night, I came upon your blog and happily became lost within your gentle world for some time. Perhaps you might stop by again to see my "crown" progress on the Moon King and Queen. I would LOVE to hear your thoughts...
kindly yours, Rose

Barb said...

Hi Anita,

Blogger did not want me on your blog. I just kept on trying and knew eventually I would win-hehe.

I love the new look. Love the pinkness, love Audrey, just love it all. Well done. This has made my day.

Hope you are feeling better.

hugs,
Barb

Karen said...

My daughter, our resident pink-a-holic, just gushed over all the yummy pink!! While I abandoned pink long ago, as I was too all about the pink, I must admit that after seeing this gorgeous display of the color, I may just have to take it up again. Actually, its been making a revival for me since having my girly-girl of little girl! Thanks for the inspiration! :>

stacycakes said...

" video playing on huge screens to start off the party,which was all pink!! fabulous!! thanks for all the pink!
