Weekend Wrap Up - Wk 12

Hello my lovelies… Happy New Year to you all!! Hope you’ve kick started your new year with a bang… I sure have!! I’m hoping 2011 will be better in a lot of ways compared to 2010!!

Watch out for more features on Colours Dekor in 2011 – it’s lovely to dabble in something new every once in a while, isn’t it? Some of them are ~

In the Spotlight ~ January & February are dedicated to ‘Walls with Character’… more on that one tomorrow.. I’m rather excited about it!

The Friday Mix will be a weekly blog swap… And am hoping you will all join in – details to follow soon.

I will also be taking ‘The Weekend Wrap Up’ and ‘Monthly Home Tours’ into 2011… so if you want your home to be featured on Colours Dekor or wish to blog swap, please write to me on

I am also looking forward to more from the team ~ ‘Yum in a Jiffy’ by Anpu or Shilpa, ‘Book Reviews’ & ‘Colour in Focus’ by Rose and more ‘Everyday Crafts,’ from Urmi & Harshi.

Now back to the New Year weekend!! We brought in the new year with friends at home… and this is how the backyard looked.
The birdbath was transformed into a candle holder…
Oh.. and I’ve been saving these lovely lanterns for a special occasion.. I have ten of these gorgeous ones in lovely colours.. I used them all for our bash!! Will surely post more pictures later!!
We set up the bar outdoors… I’m not sure if it was a good idea or not… but looked nice!! *smiles*
This is how the garage looked… with table arrangements!!
So my lovelies... will you be joining the 1st Weekend Wrap Up of the year?? ... -
  1. Do a Weekend Wrap Up post on your blog. It has to be 'your' photograph !! (post atleast one picture... its nice to see!!) and it can really be anything you did over the weekend – example – a fun recipe you tried out, a craft project, a DIY, a table top, a few candles, coffee with friends or a good book or a movie review… The list is endless… just about ANYTHING… and anything about YOU !! *smiles*
  2. No images from other websites or magazines please!! This is about YOU.
  3. Link back to my blog.... only as a courtesy, so we have more people joining the party.
