April 2011 Carnival: Spring-Summer Fest

Floating flowers
It's that time of the year again - Spring is in the air in some parts of the globe, while for others the living is easy with summer time! So, how about celebrating the spirit and joy associated with spring and summer? Ugadi, Ramanavami, Baisakhi, Gudi Padwa, Bihu, Baisakhi ….so many festivals to celebrate the season!

Down south, it’s hard to resist the sweet fragrance of Mysore Mallige Hoova (Mysore Jasmine), Ugadi and Ramanavami décor comprising tender mango leaves thoran, sumptuous lunches spread on banana leaves and the flavors of raw mango, not to mention the bursting shades of  watermelon pink.

Later in the month it will be time for Easter - when new life, resurrection and new beginnings are celebrated! Along with renewed spirits, it's time for sumptuous Easter meals, Easter egg hunts and Easter decor.

We have decided on a Spring-Summer Carnival theme to capture all these wonderful events and get the spirit going in the virtual world. What are you celebrating? The entries could be tablescapes, recipes, flower arrangements, décor ideas….just about anything associated with spring and summer!

My entry is the Ugadi decor done up today..For those who are celebrating their new year, here's wishing you all a fabulous year ahead.
