This day is yours ~ your theme today is golden yellow
Travel with me as we wander the streets on foot to Café Creative.
It is market day and somewhere in these winding streets comes the sound of people calling out their wares. There is a clattering of crates being unloaded, children laughing and loud conversations. We follow the sound through a maze of streets, past windows with open shutters and geraniums spilling over from window boxes. Suddenly the streets open up into a wide plaza crammed with colourful awnings and umbrellas and market stalls piled high with golden yellow squashes, corn and butternut pumpkins.
The streets fill with market goers cradling their shopping baskets laden with fresh produce. Dogs on leads bark and sniff, children run in and around the stalls. Bicycles piled high with shopping navigate through the crowds. It is so very noisy with market vendors and people haggling over the prices of the produce as they pick up fruit and vegetables, smell them and examine them for colour and texture.
Squeezed between the bakery and the flower seller is a tiny but festive café, with bunting hanging between the poles which the breeze blows gaily about. It is a tranquil oasis in a sea of sound and colour. You order a drink, find a table made from recycled packing crates and sit down on a striped yellow cushion.
You are at the Café Creative, a place to activate your creativity.
You sip your drink, bring out your paper, pens and glue-stick and start to transform this moment into a travel memory.
The theme colour is golden yellow – make a golden palette, use the sound of the market vendors and the haggling customers, the smells of baking bread and ripe fruit and vegetables as your inspiration.
You have just over five minutes to enjoy your drink before your table is needed for someone else so….
Get inspired, use what you have and finish.
