Pink & Green Saturday at Lily O'Brien's

Happy Pink & Green Saturday! I was thinking all week what to post that would be Pink and Green and then I stopped by Tinsel Trading and the very talented Rosemary Warren (Creative Director) was decorating the windows for Easter. Roe (Rosemary) was so excited to see me and tell me about a good friend who owns the "FABULOUS" Lily O'Brien's chocolate cafe on 40th between 5th and 6th Avenue's, across the street from Bryant Park. Roe also designs for them. I keep missing Roe and today is her Birthday so she could not meet with me this time. But I thought it would be fun to stop by and post for my Pink and Green Saturday post. I promise to be back for their Easter display and meet with Rosemary so she can tell us all how she gets inspired and designs such beautiful displays. Happy Birthday Rosemary! May the luck of the Irish and a pink pot filled with love family and friendships, come at the end of the rainbow to all your homes! xoox

You are so fortunate to be able to stroll down the street to such a lovely place.
Those macaroons would be my downfall for sure.
What a charming shop.

Happy Birthday to your fab friend.
You have no idea how lucky you are to be living in such a great city. One of our favourites to spend money and time in, LOL.
We have pretty macarons in Montreal too ; )

Oh Grace Sweetie...
What a beautiful and gorgeous share today. A stroll in New York with my beautiful pinkie friend. I can't thank you enough for taking me along.

Oh I love macaroons (actually anything coconut and chocolate are my favs). Yummy does that hot chocolate ever look wonderful. I can feel the steam on my face.

I so enjoyed my stroll today. Love their window display, the menus are just precious and I love the lighting. Gorgeous and fun.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

When you get a perfect macaroon, there is nothing that can beat it. Love the idea of sitting there, drinking something hot, eating something yummy and just relaxing. Happy Pink Saturday girlfriend and please forgive the tardiness, Char

Ginger said...

What a wonderful place you are showing us today. I would weigh a thousand pounds if I lived near that place. MMMMMMMMM! I have never tasted a macaroon like those but see them on all the blogs. Look very good. Thanks for sharing and Happy St Pats Day.
