Chinoiserie Chic Part I

Posted by helen on February 17, 2015

Every Day is a holiday, Barbie is hosting another party..

1. Raising the Red Lanterns to create a festive atmosphere …

the Lantern Makers want you to believe “the red lantern is a symbol of luck, wherever it is hung, that place will be prosperous and flourishing.”

Barbie’s Red Lanterns can light up if you push the tiny white buttons at the top,  I just don’t know how to replace the Batteries if they are out??

2. Paraols

Above the mountain is the dome of the sky. This is symbolized by the umbrella– its important function is to cast a shadow, the shadow of protection, thus the coolness of its shade symbolizes protection from the heat of suffering, desire, and other spiritually harmful force

3. Soul Food

Chinese Cuisine is widely seen as representing one of the richest and most diverse culinary heritages in the world… Holidays  are a time to celebrate with festive foods,   Many holiday dishes  have symbolic meanings… such as  Year Cake & Dumplings
