DIY Easter Centerpieces | Coral, Robin's Egg Blue + Gold

April 17, 2014
Happy Friday, color lovers! I hope you guys have had a really great week? Today I'm excited because I have a really fun Easter inspired styled shoot to share with you guys. It's full of big beautiful blooms, vintage inspired details, and a color palette that has me feeling absolutely inspired.

This is what Danielle Evans Photography had to say about their design, "We used bright colors like coral and robin's egg blue and accented with gold details. I especially love this color palette because it combines the festive colors of Spring with the elegance of gold. We nestled this tablescape among woods of bamboo and a carpet of ivy. This location worked especially well because the natural colors of nature made the perfect backdrop to the bright and vibrant colors used in the tablescape."

From the photographer, "We also wanted to create a look that could be easily recreated. A majority of the details we included were handmade from everyday items. The eggs were hardboiled and spray painted blue, gold, and speckled white. And many of the candle sticks are also painted gold as well as the magnolia leaves that rested on the place setting."

Goodness! I don't know about you, but I'm feeling absolutely inspired! I love, love, love that vibrant color tablecloth. And those centerpieces? Such a pretty centerpiece if you ask me! It's a beautiful display that has me wishing I could just jump into this scene and stay awhile. I'm obsessed with this beautiful natural setting too. I love the contrast between the coral and the bamboo. Oh, and those gorgeous Easter eggs? Yeah, I'm thinking that I might have to recreate this for our Easter spread this weekend!

This or That: Mint vs. Radiant Orchid

Today I thought it would be fun to take a peek at a couple of palettes that I created a while back. Why would I want to do this, you ask? Well, it's no secret that I'm drawn to bold and beautiful color palettes. But when faced with the decision on what colors to use for an upcoming project, I'm just like you guys in that I am sometimes overwhelmed by the possibilities. Because let's face it, there really are so many pretty palettes to choose from!

So the question is: should I go for a this vintage inspired mint palette with gorgeous glittery details? Or should I go with more of a berry toned palette full of romantic details and overly feminine touches? It's no secret that mint has been on my mind here lately. But that's not the only color that I've been crushing on! Pantone's Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, has also found it's way into this heart of mine. 


Because I don't know about you, but I've always been pretty passionate about purple tones. Looking for a romantic color palette for your upcoming wedding or party? Why not try mixing shades of purple with shades of pink? Elegant, beautiful and absolutely unique, these are the sort of colors I love to see paired together. And I'm hoping you can see why?


So what do you think? Would you consider using a romantic palette like this? Or are you finding yourself more drawn to this marvelous mint shade? Right now I'm sort of leaning towards mint. But ask me tomorrow and I bet that I'll say that I'm leaning towards Radiant Orchid. Decisions, decisions... So tell me... which palette you would choose? Vintage inspired mint? Or Romantic Radiant Orchid?
