{Build Me Up, Buttercup}: A Palette of Chocolate, Mustard + White

May 15, 2009


{Chocolate, Mustard + White}


Mustard is just one of those colors that always makes me happy! It's bright & cheery and there is just a certain vitality about it that I love. I can't help but smile when I look at yellow-and this shade is no exception. When I got the request to put together a custom inspiration board in the colors mustard and chocolate I just knew that I would have fun putting this one together. Her only request was that I create the board in a rustic setting & that I incorporate sunflowers. {continued...}

Champagne Toast! Cheers!
Sunflower Bouquets

In my design, ladies wore mustard colored gowns which really made for a beautiful splash of color. Bouquets of sunflowers were held by both the bride and her maids & centerpieces were kept low and simple. In lieu of the traditional wedding cake, apple pie was served along with homemade ice cream. Guests went home with jars of a special family recipe and a sweet thank you from the newlyweds.

This is so very beautiful and it looks like what would be inside a sunflower if it came alive! I just think you have such a great eye.

That photo of michelle williams is one of my all time favourite oscar outfits EVER! Until I decided to wear my hair up for the wedding, that was what I was going to do with it...heck, I wish I could style my hair like that just on a regular day!
