Some Pinks for a Pink Saturday


Happy Pink Saturday sweet bloggerettes! I have been busy getting ready for the season ahead. Planning menus, doing crafts, shopping, etc.

So now, the prettiest day of the week has arrived and what do I have to show you today?

These are some of the pink Christmas balls which I have been using in decorating this year. Aren't they purty?

I finally finished the wreath I have been working on. It's got lots of baubles, flowers, and sparklies.

Here is the little tree that I used as my inspiration. Rather than display it in the red pot it was in, I have decided I like it better in the toile hat box. You can see what it looked like before by visiting Christmas Pudding ~ http://christmaspudding09.blogspot.com/ which is my Christmas blog.

Here is the finished wreath. I realize you can't see all of the decorations but there are silver, white, pink, and gold balls. Some silvery branches tucked in here and there. Red berries and sparkly pinecones and of the course, the pink bow.

And here it is hanging on the door.

It really does look better in person! It was hard to get a good shot with the light coming in the window. Here it is at nighttime. Now I'm working on a centerpiece to match the wreath.


I love mercury glass, don't you? Especially when it's pink! I couldn't resist this one which I found at Michaels. I really like the adornment of the jewel on it which is the inspiration for the little silver grape embossed tray underneath.
Lastly, care for a cookie? This cookie with sprinkles is served up on a stack of pink plates and is really a candle melt. It smells like the real deal!


If you like to see more pink then please proceed to Beverly's blog and see her pink lineup. http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/

Wishing each one of you a pretty pink weekend.

Love how your tree and wreath turned out. That was a perfect idea to put the tree in the toile box. I have the same mercury glass votive cup from Micheals. Love their stuff. Where did you find the cute candle melts? Looks just like a cookie. Thanks! Happy PS

Love the wreath and the tree. You have been busy. I'm working on gift but have decorating ideas floating around in my head. Hope to finish gifts next week and begin my decorating. I'm thinking blue and silver this year (not pink).

Happy Pink Saturday.
