Have any good ideas for solid themes??

Mine first idea for a theme would be called "the wedding"

The theme would have the following solids:

Cake topper
Pillow with diamond ring on it
Bridesmaids bouquet
Wedding dress on dress makers dummy
Post card from honeymoon
A pair of toasting glasses

My second theme would be "things that one cannot live without"

Credit card
Cell phone
Lipstick
Sunglasses

Hi everyone,


I would love to see a Christmas theme;


Xmas Tree
Angel
Door Wreath
Snowman (maybe on a sled this time)
Santa
Reindeer/ Sleigh
Stocking


All with lots of sparkling crystals. Its not long till Christmas and this would have to be my most favourite time of the year.So why not have some beautiful Xmas solids to have on display as well.

I'd love to see EL perfume bottle replicas made into solids (as they already did for Youth Dew). At the same time, reproduce discountinued perfumes such as Cinnabar and Knowing into solids (in the likeness of their original bottles).

Ice cream/frozen treats:

Sundae (with chocolate, vanilla, strawberry colors to make it pretty)
Rocket Popsicle (has red, white, blue)
Ice cream Sandwich
Banana Split
Ice cream cone with 2 scoops
Snowcone
Chocolate layer cake ala mode (with vanilla ice cream)


World's Most Famous Monuments/Landmarks:

Big Ben
Tower of London
White House
Golden Gate Bridge
Alamo
Sydney Opera House
Petronas Towers (Malaysia, world's tallest building)
Red Square showing Cathedral of St. Basil (Moscow)
Pyramids
Colloseum
Leaning Tower of Pisa
Eiffel Tower

Martha - Love the 50s idea!

Would like to see some Indian items such as:

Tee Pee
Roaring Campfire
Indian Chief
Indian Maiden
Buffalo
Antelope
Painted Pony
Woven baskets

There are already several western theme pieces that would go well with them (cactus, stage coach, cowboy, cowgirl,etc.).

Hallo everybody,

my name is Madeleine (pinkmoiree) and I'm from Switzerland. I joined this wonderful site in May 04.

I can fully support Nettie's wishlist for new solids but would like to add a

Nutcracker

like the one in E.T.A. Hoffmann's Tale. This would beautyfully match my tutu and balletslippers.

Mmm love Martha's idea of 50's theme.
Also I have said it before and know it won't happen but I still say Disney Theme...
Cinderella Winnie the Pooh, Snow White this could be huge!!!
Wardrobe theme ie: Coat, hat, Boots, Trouser Suit etc.
Finally dolls house style furniture, dinner plate with knife/fork (to go with Teapot)
rocking chair, fireplace, lampstand, etc etc etc..
There I'm all out of ideas now.

You all have such wonderful ideas!!

I'd like to see EL continue with the dept. store shopping bag and hatbox theme, even though I still can't get my hands on the Harrods, Holt Renfrew and DJ shopping bags!!

And a travel theme would be nice....luggage, airplane, train case, carry-on/duffle bag, etc.

Didn't someone mention martini glass (was it you, Lisa)? A goblet, wine bottle, liquor bottle, flask.....

This is fun!
