It's Pink and Green Thursday!!

The past week I have found a vast amount of amazing pink and green things which I think are blog-worthy. Every day I would find something else, then change my mind about share. I could not decide on just one, therefore I am going to write about two different pink and green themed things today. First up is a phenomenal article that I found in the April 2010 issue of Traditional Home. I cannot even begin to tell you how badly I want to meet Seattle's exuberant foodie Heather Christothoulou and become her best friend! She has an amazing knack for collaborating food and design to throw an eye-pleasing feast. You have to go to the magazine's website, type in "A Visual Feast," read the article and look lustfully at the photographs. The Lemon Poppy-Seed Layer Cake will make your mouth start watering. Christothoulou serves a pink drink out of a collection of pink glassware that inspired her color choices for this gathering.

The Pink Drink:
Fill a large pitcher halfway with ice. Add 6 cups ruby-red grapefruit juice, 1 cup pomegranate juice, 1 cup ice-cold vodka, and some fresh mint sprigs. Stir to mix. Serve in chilled (pink) glasses; garnish with mint sprigs. Makes 8 servings. For a nonalcoholic version, substitute 7 cups raspberry lemonade for grapefruit juice and vodka. Prepare as above.

If you are not familiar with Polka Dot Design (, you must head over to their website and check them out. They have the most adorable stationery, invitations, stickers, notepads, customs stamps, you name it and they have it! I have ordered things from them multiple times and have always been pleased. I find that the pricing is reasonable, and where else can you find such cute designs?!? Through July 7th, use the code JULY410 to receive 15% off all orders site wide.
