As you know the tropical trend has been so hot this year. Here at Pinks & Green we are totally crazy about all of the tropical icons and one of our top 3 favourites has to be the crazy cacti. We have been adding some Mexican magic to our lives. We have cacti in our home and garden, in our wardrobe and even added it to our cocktail menu and we will share our fab new black cacti cocktail recipe later…
We have cacti in almost all categories of our shop. We have the cool cactus on paper plates, cups and napkins. We have super cool neon cactus lights, pretty cactus trinket dishes and super soft cactus cushions just to mention a few, but probably the star of the show this summer has to be our giant inflatable cactus by the fabulous Australian brand, Sunnylife. Size does matter!
Going from one extreme to the other (size wise) we have the cutest cacti nail files ever! At only £1.00 each this fabulous nail files are not only great fun but great value.
