Asian themed party!



A very big thank you to my friend and talented artist (and blogger) Sophie, for not only recommending my Vietnamese silk lanterns to her sister for her big Asian themed birthday bash, but for also sending me a great picture of the party.
Don't the lanterns look stunning! I love the marquee too - what a great combination! It almost makes me want to throw a big party too :-)

Visit Sophies blog to see more party pics, listen to some music and see the amazing cake! Aaaaaahhh - wish I had been there!

Have a great week!!

Hi Karen,

What fun...glad you liked the image...only sorry I didn;t get others! Actually there is one of Jan looking up at the lanterns I'll send you. I will also see who else took photos!

Was a great party indeed and the theme came through beautifully with the birthday girl also wearing her vietnamese silk outfit and the touches of colour and plants all around.
They even built a temporary gold fish pond in the garden...the humidity was atmospheric too!

Thanks for the lovely post and kind words.
You're very sweet!
Sophie

Did I tell you how much I love your blog?

I came over to visit, looked for a place to follow you, but didn't find it. Perhaps you can help me because I definitely want to be a fan.

Warmest regards,

I love the color combination. With green, yellow and orange. They really match and it's also perfect for an asian themed party. What a brilliant idea!

Bonjour Karen,
The lanterns look so gorgeous, you have the best colors. It really does make the room so festive and yes I'll go with you to the next one!
Hope all is going well for you. I've heard the incredibly hot summer is nearly over for you in Australia.
Happy Friday,
