Tropical fusion...

Sometimes you just want it to be summer....
The weather hasn't been very good this month but today it got better and I felt like having a tropical food party.

All these bright tropical colors and food from allover the world ( only sunny places ;-)) gave me the tropical feeling.
A tropical idea for your interior when its raining outside...
