And then I don’t think I have had a chance yet to share with you our new placemat designs! For anyone who is not afraid of a bit of colour, these guys are for you!

a flamboyance of flamingoes…

Today we have a whole flamboyance of flamingo inspired things to show you! While the northern hemisphere is slowly starting to thaw out, and we’re just getting to enjoy the best part of our summer, the whole world is going crazy for these crazy beautiful birds!

We are especially excited about this really beautiful tropical inspired wedding decor shoot that Wedding Album magazine did recently using our Pink Flamingo napkins. How beautiful is this wedding spread? Makes me want to go back and do mine all over again : )

This young lady in Australia had her surfboard customised using our Pink Flamingo linen cotton fabric. How cool did this turn out? Makes me want to go surfing immediately!! Thanks so much to her for sharing these pics with us!

We spotted some flamingo trend forecast inspiration going on on instagram…we may be a little biased, but we’re super excited that they chose to use our design : )

And while we are at it…here are some of our favourite Etsy treasuries featuring all kinds of flamingo inspired beauties. If these don’t get you excited about flamingoes, I’m afraid nothing will!
