Friday Five: Red and White

A couple of years ago I mentioned my love of red and white as a colour combination. Leaving aside the fact that red and white grapes make up champagne, there are still at least five reasons why those colours look brilliant together:

5 Great Red and White combos:
  1. Christmas - from stripy candy canes to the great jolly present-giver himself
  2. England - the red rose of the House of Lancaster merged with the white rose of the House of York to form the Tudor rose and the emblem of England
  3. Liverpool FC - need I say more?
  4. Strawberries and cream - one of the best and simplest food presentations ever
  5. Barbers' poles - curiously hypnotic
Looks good on E-types too
