Holiday Pink

My latest holiday obsession: PINK! Pick your favorite shade, whether it's fuchsia bright or dusty rose, celebrate the cheery season in a stylish display of pink. Los Angeles never feels like Fall, much less Christmas time. So I decided to finally get to Aldik, which specializes in artificial fruits, florals, foliage, and the like. And with 60% Off Everything inside I ran every red light and stop sign to get there early. As soon as you walk in you're thrust into a stunning showroom of gorgeous trees dressed to the nines for Christmas. Filled with things you never knew existed. Black foil trees. Upside-down trees. Ornaments as big as automobile tires, and more. My absolute favorite of all, was the 9-foot splendor in pink! The classic pedestal urn was painted with a mirror gloss pink with a 7-foot conical topiary. (I'd just love it if anyone in the communities tackled this for a DIY) Let the pictures inspire you. Though I have no instructions on how to recreate it's foundation, you'd need: โ€ข Carnations โ€ข Roses โ€ข Gingham bows (ribbon) โ€ข Frosted balls with glitter โ€ข Clear faceted crystal balls โ€ข tons of creativity What do you think of pink for the holidays?

Honestly, the first thing that came to mind was Victoria's Secret. Their interior is PINK all season (including holidays). I don't see why pink wouldn't work for holiday decor.
True that, @marshalledgar. I wanna apply the pink design to my Christmas and give a twist. It's a bit hard to mix it in to my current interior setting, but I should definitely try :)
I haven't been to VS in forever. When I saw this topiary, besides being overcome with wonder, I was so inspired to get creative and break out of mainstream design.
@iluvdurian31 That's great. Share a pic when you finish it.

V-Day Vegan Recipe: Turtle Cheesecake with Pecans, Fudge, and Caramel Drizzle
My father's favorite chocolate was always Turtles. Every Christmas, every birthday, even Easter Sunday, and every Valentine's Day, we all knew exactly which candy we were going to surprise him with. As my sister became more and more invested in her vegan diet, however, she eventually upgraded her Turtle gift into this truly decadent vegan Turtle cheesecake, topped with pecans, caramel sauce, and hot fudge. Check the ingredients labels, and you should be able to find some vegan hot fudge at the grocery store. Caramel sauce might be a little trickier. However, don't worry. I've made sure to include a homemade recipe for both, so you can make them both from scratch, if needed! -------------------------------------------------------- Vegan Turtle Cheesecake 2 (8-ounce) packages vegan cream cheese (I recommend Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese's original flavor.) 2 cups vegan sour cream 3/4 cup sugar 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds 1 vegan chocolate cookie pie crust (Keebler's Chocolate Ready Crust is surprisingly vegan!) 1/4 cup toasted pecans 2 eggs worth of Ener-G Egg Replacer (or any other binding vegan egg replacer of choice) 1 batch of hot fudge topping (see below) 1 batch of caramel topping (see below) 1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. In your largest mixing bowl, blend the vegan cream cheese, vegan sour cream, and sugar using an electric handheld mixer until smooth. 2. Add the vanilla, flour, and flaxseeds and mix for about a minute. Itโ€™s important to make sure there arenโ€™t any lumps. Pour your creamy filling into the chocolate crust. 3. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Check the center with a toothpick to make sure itโ€™s solid. Pull the cheesecake out of the oven when it is solid to the touch and passes the toothpick test or when the top starts to crack a little and begins pulling from the sides. 4. Cool on a wire rack for around an hour and then top with pecans and sauce (see recipe for sauces below). Refrigerate overnight and then enjoy this wonderful treat! For the Hot Fudge Topping: 1 cup Silk vanilla coffee creamer (or any other non-dairy vanilla coffee creamer) 1/2 a bag of vegan chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli, but there are lots of others.) 1/2 cup of sugar 1 tablespoon Earth Balance vegetable spread 1 teaspoon vanilla 1. In a sauce pan, heat the creamer, chocolate, and sugar at medium heat until it starts to boil. Remove from heat and whisk in Earth Balance and vanilla until the mix is smooth and creamy. 2. Let the sauce cool for 30 minutes. (If you have time, put it in the fridge. It will get firm just like fudge!) For the Caramel Topping: 1 cup of light corn syrup 1 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup Earth Balance 1 cup Silk vanilla coffee creamer 1. In a saucepan, heat the corn syrup, brown sugar, and Earth Balance to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 5 minutes and continue to stir. Combine in creamer, then remove from heat and let cool.
Holiday Cheesecake Cookies
Cookie dough: 400 g all purpose flour 125 g confectionersโ€™ sugar 200 g butter 1 egg pinch of salt Filling: 100 g sour cream 200 g cream cheese, room temperature 100 g sweetened condensed milk 2 tbs lemon juice strawberry jam To decorate: Red and green food colouring, and wooden skewers Instructions: 1. Letโ€™s start preparing cookie dough. In a medium mixing-bowl, mix together all ingredientes to form a ball. 2. Divide the dough in two, and gather each portion into a slightly flattened ball. 3. Working with one ball of dough at a time, roll it out between two baking papers to a thickness of maximum 0,5 cm. 4. Using a beveled cookie cutter, cut out circles and drape one circle over each bowl cavity of pan, pressing to form smooth surface. (I used a mini cupcake pan) 5. Chill whilst preheating oven to 350ยบ F (180 ยบC) 6. Slip cookies into the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and let them cool on the pan for about 10 minutes 7. Let them cool completely on a wire rack 8. When cold, prepare cheese filling. Mix sweetened condensed milk, sour cream (or whip cream) and cream cheese on a medium bowl, until combined. Add lemon juice and mix well. 9. Place two tablespoons cheese cream on a small bowl, and another two tablespoons on a separate small bowl. Tint one of the bowls with red food colouring, and the other one with green food colouring. 10. Place 1 teaspoon strawberry jam on every cookie bowl. Fill with cheese cream. Use wooden skewers and red and green mixes to decorate 11. Keep in the fridge until set (about 4 hours if using sour cream, at least 24 hours if using whipping cream). They are better the next day. Can be stored several days on the fridge
