Orange Surprise










I am loving this pop of orange and I am in need of a splash of colour to brighten up my day! I threw a bit of a party on the weekend - just a casual get to together with the neighbours so I used orange as an accent colour. I hung orange paper lanterns in the trees to match the bird of paradise flowers that are growing like crazy in the garden, I filled big plastic orange drink tubs with ice, orange paper servittes, orange tulips and orange dotty cupcakes cases. Just those few inexpensive touches really livened things up and put the house in party mode! Oh, and I'd also love to be invited to an Austin Powers or sixties themed party just so I could wear the dress in the first image!
