Pastel Pinks and Greens the colours of Spring 2018 at yay retro!
This season you'll have noticed that pastel pinks and greens are all the rage. I first noticed it in magazines such as Mollie Makes and then went on to see the same colours in shops such as Fat Face. These ice creamy tones are super sweet and work well to give you a relaxed, calm feel. Cool, clean and uplifting they are the prefect way to celebrate Spring time and to give your home a lift.
yay retro! have some great vintage items which come in these colours right now. Choose from 1970s unused sheets for you bed in Flower Power pinks, as well as vintage pink tablecloths. I have melamine cups and saucers in a gentle green made by Gaydon in the 1960s. these were made for use in the home, however nowadays you are more likely to find them in a camper van or vintage caravan. Why not pair these with a stunning Woods Berylware teapot. This design comes from the 1940s, and was in production for so many years nearly every family will recall this iconic design.
The pink and green cake plate is perfect for parties and celebrations as well as for afternoon tea parties, it's a good size and can accommodate the largest of cakes. I even have a pastel green decorated enamel saucepan from Arabia Finland, and this one's in at a clearance price making it even more appealing! Why not pop in to yay retro! now and search by colour to find these goodies and more.
