Today I am thinking pink – in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And, though I thought of many ways to bring pink into the picture today, I came back to wanting to share bright and happy images to begin your weekend.
The Royal Hawaiian on the glorious Waikiki beachfront is literally the pinkest resort I’ve ever seen. So much so that it was worth mentioning here…today!
The hotel recently emerged from a complete renovation. Yet, bears an illustrious history. Founded in 1927, it was the playground of the rich and famous. A young Shirley Temple made quite a stir while staying there in the 1930s, as she strummed the ukulele on the beach. Not surprisingly, the Shirley Temple cocktail was invented at the hotel.
Hawaii holds a special place in my heart. It’s where I became engaged….and one of these days I hope to return. Perhaps I can sip pink champagne at the Pink Palace!
My pretty pink thanks to Philpotts Interiors and photographer, Art Gray for allowing me to share these pictures and the news of this fantastic make-over!!
Whatever you do today….think pink!
