Today is Chinese New Year’s eve and Gong Xi Fa Cai is the traditional greeting that means “wishing you prosperity”.

Tonight I am celebrating the occasion at a banquet cooked by a fabulous friend. The invitation requests guests wear something red, symbolising good fortune.

Red also happens to be one of my friend’s favourite colours so it’s not surprising that she grows red roses which she shared for this Garden Fairy’s dress.

I’m looking forward to tonight’s festivities and in the spirit of the day – Gong Xi Fa Cai to you!
