4 Weekend Project: Setting the Scene


A fun Valentine idea coming from Ideas Magazine out of South Africa that I came across recently (which by the way is fast becoming a fave magazine)! Since Valentines is less than two weeks away, I thought this was fun inspiration for then or anytime.  Setting the stage for a romantic meal for two.  Loving the red and pink painted chairs, the little chalk drawn window with a real shelf, the paper lanterns and yum this chocolate kiss desert (complete with a little arrow made using a thin dowel/or chopstick and paper heart and arrow end using a glue gun)!  Fun!  I picked up my copy of Ideas Magazine via Zinio.

Also how cute is this origami chopstick idea I found on their website. Click here to see how to make it.

I was thrilled to read this post about Ideas magazine. Being a South African who now lives in Canada, i realized as soon as I saw the writing on the chalk board wall, that there was an SA component. I had no heard of Zinio before but have now downloaded it o my ipad and and subscribed to a few SA mags, including Ideas! Thank you so much!

I am definitely going to have to check out that magazine. I need some new reading material to go through during my little fella's nap time!

Also love the idea of those origami folders used with paper straws! Super cute!!

Thank you for posting this. The red and pink chairs are exactly the idea I needed for old chairs I have from my grandmother and need some uplifting. Yup. Pinning it right now! :)

Cheers
