Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend. Wasn’t it wonderful with the sun shining so bright. It reminded me of my happy new vase from Amara.

It’s the Hay Wide Juice striped yellow glass vase. I’ve decorated it with some dried colourful flowers. Traybakes-barfi-in-ice-cream-colours Talking about colours, I need to share with you some delightful Indian sweets that I tried this weekend too. They are called Barfi truffles, a dense milk based sweet infused with ice cream flavours and colours. This box of treats was sent to me by The Little Traybakes Company.

They are so delicious,light and sweet. So perfect with a cup of coffee right? dried-flowers-multi-colours If you love the colourful dried flowers, they are from The Happy Blossoms. Flowers do indeed make people happy, especially with those colours right?

What I love about them is that they will never die and fade. Saves a huge amount of money on buying flowers don’t you think?

Although, after saying so, I do love freshly picked flowers too, an instant mood booster too right?

Hope you’ve enjoyed this happy colours post. I’ll be back pretty soon with some new vibrant home decor that I’ve recently discovered.
