  • izan

    oh i forgot to ask… the pink and white daisies, are they plastic or chocolate?

  • Heartbreakingly gorgeous. I am, as always, in awe of you, Clotilde!

    Jane and Michael Stern have a cookbook called “Square Meals”. They redo a Lilly Pons “Pink Party” in it. Lots of fun. A little late, but still a read you may enjoy.

  • A big company I worked for in the 1980s refurbished their offices in oh so trendy tones of pink and grey. So we in the IT dept had a “pink” tea party where we had pink food and all wore pink clothes …. the rest of the company just thought we were odd.

    Our food wasn’t impressive as yours though.

  • How delightful!

  • josie

    scrumptious! you must have done a very good job.

  • Izan – The pink bottles had Perrier Fluo Rose in them : Perrier is a sparkling water, and they have created a new line of brightly colored (“fluorescent”) flavored waters. The pink one is cherry ginger! Interesting taste, but a little artificial…

    I didn’t buy the straws myself so I’m not sure, but they may indeed come from Ikea, or maybe from Habitat, a home and kitchen store a bit similar to Crate&Barrel, I don’t know if you know it.

    As for the daisies, they are made of wafer paper. So they are edible, but tasteless! Aren’t they pretty?

    Bryan – Thanks for pointing me to that book, I’ll take a peek! One of my favorite cookbook authors, Trish Deseine, has a book on parties in which she has several color-themed buffets. Her pink buffet is in fact pink and orange jointly. She has a wonderful black and white one, too!

    Helen – Sounds like a cool IT team! :) And it’s even more fun when other people think you’re odd, no?

    Jackie, Karen and Josie – Glad you like it!

  • wow! nice pinky pics! looks like a little girl’s dream party theme. :) seriously very very nice :)

  • Wena – Indeed, I’ll have to remember those things if I ever have a birthday party to cater for, although the beetroot tartlets might not go down too well with 6 year-olds?

  • Jen
