Beautiful Impatients Tamarinda...❥

Impatients Tamarinda
What can I say but - "I AM IN LOVE"!
In love with this beautiful Impatients.

Impatients Tamarinda
The flower is stunning, with pops of the most refreshing mauve pink colour.

The dark green leaves are veined in a pinky red.
And what is even more perfect is, 
this Impatients variety thrives in a part shade position.
That means it is perfect for my covered patio, which gets afternoon sun.

The plants' full title is called Impatiens Tamarinda by Iconia.
The label describes this plant as a garden jewel and I would have to agree!
The flowers are jewel-like and actually remind me of the colours found in pink agate stone.

 The buds unfold just like a tiny rose.

A Simple Christmas Table Centrepiece...❥

Every year I buy a few new things for my Christmas decor collection.
Do you have one of those too?

Mia Bella Passions Blog
Well, I simply love Christmas.
And this year decorating was kept minimalistic.
Not real minimalistic, 
but Mia Bella Passions kind of minimalistic.

The colour theme this Christmas is green and white tones with wood.
For the Dining table decor styling,
a simple aqua table cloth was placed on the table.
Add one home sewn, Christmas green checked gingham table runner.

Then a round metal tray with wood handles was placed in the middle of the table. 
Onto that three white embossed ceramic mini planters were placed.
Into each of these a candle.
I used aqua coloured candles to compliment the aqua coloured tablecloth.

Then place a ceramic white deer as a focal feature.
Around the candles add some faux pine greenery and pinecones.

All of the items used for this centrepiece were sourced from KMart NZ.
Except for the candles which were bought from Briscoes NZ on sale.
