Make Mine Pink's Friday Shopping Event

Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday October 2, 2009 as we present "SIMPLY PINK"

Shades of pink are popping up everywhere. Pink, once reserved for women's boudoirs and little girl's dresses is now being incorporated into the d├ęcor of homes everywhere. Sometimes in hues of summer sunsets, and sometimes bold and bright, pink makes a statement that is impossible to ignore.

Many decorators are "all things pink" fans and put pink in every corner and space - pink furniture, pink curtains, pink accessories. Others' craving for pink is satisfied with just a bit of a favorite shade here and there. You may find a pink pale mirror hanging in the cream colored powder room, an antique pink teapot for tea parties with the girls, or an accent wall painted in a vibrant pink.




Mixing shades of pink makes a room feminine, but the single pink accent in a black and white room can command just as much attention. Towels with pink tatting in a white basket, a miniature pink accent placed on a shelf, or a pink cushion on a contrasting sofa. Even when subtle, pink catches the eye wherever it's used.



Over the past few years, pink has been proclaimed the new black. It's the color that fits in with any theme - from girly to chic, from romantic to modern. Store windows are filled with eye popping pink accessories and furnishings. Designers are using extravagant pink fabrics for whole pieces or to create just a few pink touches. Websites are celebrating pink by selling pink products and giving us ideas for decorating in pink.

What is it about pink that makes us love it so? It's the color of play and delight, yet feminine and strong. It can be whimsical on vintage doll tutus and pink fairy cake pillows. It reflects a bold zest for life when used on larger pieces. It's a reminder of the past on keepsake boxes, and feminine on a ribbon or a rose.
Make Mine Pink represents so much more than just the color pink. It symbolizes women, femininity, strength and calm. Whether you surround yourself with pink or just keep a special pink reminder nearby, pink celebrates life - everything you already are and all your hope for the future.
