Come One! Come All! Pink Saturday Circus Day!

Where to start?! Gather together some chipboard and paper maché and wooden dowels. Then cover them with your favorite pink fabrics that cry out to be part of a vintage European circus.

First add some pink vintage trim, and gather some vintage pink seam binding to highlight the pale pink. Make a miniature pleated fan of pink print paper and add a pink background circle and finish with a pink rhinestone. Use a vintage palest of pink faux pearl necklace that has been broken and embellish the pleated fan with pink ribbon.

What is a circus without feathers and pom poms and fringes and beads? Add some lovely vintage pink millinery flowers, because they were used so often on the elaborate European circus costumes. Find a focal point to add a fabulous vintage pink and clear rhinestone brooch.

Add flowers and ribbons and beads - oh, my!

Then grab your bag of roasted chestnuts and paper cup of hazelnut glacée and enjoy the performers as they entertain you with dances and feats of daring, with humor and with exciting trained animals that both frighten and delight you! Any circus is charming and delightful - but the most enchanting of all is a Pink Saturday circus!

Be sure to visit Beverly at Beverly's Pink Saturday, and see all the other people who celebrate pink with her every Saturday ... from vintage treasures to art moderne and everything in between. Tell 'em Tristan sent you!

Now, go make something beautiful!
