Inspiration Board # 179: Orange, Yellow & Slate Gray

March 29, 2009

{Shades of Orange, Yellow & Slate Gray}

The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and spring is officially here! If you're a spring or summer bride and you are still searching for the perfect palette for your wedding, try this palette on for size. Orange, yellow and slate gray really are something special. Full of sunshine, bursting with energy, and definitely packed with the fun factor, I created this palette for bride-to-be Anna. Anna wrote to me with this color palette in mind and simply said "work your magic." So off to the drawing board I went, and the result? A lovely inspiration board full of sunshine and all things happy. In my design, I gave Anna's bridesmaids slate gray dresses that were both charming and figure flattering.

The invitation design incorporated Anna's color palette and a lovely floral motif that was both kitchy and fun. Tables were dressed with fun patterned orange table runners and a variety of yellow and orange blooms including the brides favorite flower-gerber daisies! Place settings consisted of homemade gray napkins that were tied with little yellow scraps of ribbon. Guests left this party with big smiles on their faces and memories that would last for years to come.
