{Yellow, Slate Gray & Gray}

Yellow, gray and white doesn't necessarily sound like a palette that would be a good one for the season of Winter but I happen to think that when done right, this color palette is absolutely great for the season! The cool shade of slate gray is understated and oh so chic while this bright and cheery shade of yellow is both fun & full of personality! This palette is full of fun ideas & crafty DIY projects! Some of my favorites come straight from one of my favorite Etsy sellers, Twig and Thistle! Check out those creative coat check tags complete with perforated bottoms. And just look at those customizable sparkler cards!

Such thoughtful details! It's details like these that will be truly memorable for your guests. And what's best is that you can actually choose from a variety of colors! Looking for ideas for your own of town guests bags? Check out the creative ones included in this board! Inside the bag, the bride included a welcome note, hot cocoa packets & homemade snowflake marshmallows! Thanks to Twig and Thistle for all of those wonderful ideas! I invite you to go check out their shop! Oh, and who doesn't love the looks of these send offs? Can you imagine running though a tunnel of sparklers and then hopping onto a bicycle built for two? I sure can!

25 Days of Christmas, Day 20: Silver Bells, Silver Bells!

December 21, 2009

{Red, Slate Gray & Silver}

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks dressed in holiday style. In the air there's a feeling of Christmas. Children laughing, people passing, meeting smile after smile, And on every street corner you'll hear...Silver bells, silver's Christmas time in the city. Don't you just love that song! I absolutely do! It has a way of just putting me right into the holiday spirit! Just as I hope that this inspiration board does for you! A palette of red, silver & white is just right for the holiday season and perfect for Winter weddings too. Some of my absolute favorite ideas in this board include the beautiful letterpress invitations, the unique bridesmaid ensemble and of course who could resist those silver bells hanging on the door handle!

25 Days of Christmas: Day 19: All is Calm, All is Bright!

{Navy Blue, Silver & Snow White

Well, the week has arrived! The week of Christmas! And admittedly, I'm a tad behind on my countdown! So many things to get done before the Christmas and so little time! Anyone with me on this one? I'm hoping to get caught up today! I happen to really enjoy this palette of navy blue, silver and white. Especially when used in a Winter wedding. It's got a cool vibe to it. Very elegant, and modern! Yet, oh so charming and special. Some of my favorite ideas in this board include the gorgeous snowflake garland, that creative program design and that beautiful invitation! Anyone out there getting married this week? Or next Winter perhaps? Which colors are you leaning towards?

{Peach, Light Pink & Antique Gold}

This pretty palette of peach, pink and gold is such a nice change of pace from the bold and bright color palettes that we so often see during the holidays. I absolutely love how soft it feels. Some of my favorite items in this board include the gorgeous invitations by Momental Designs and that beautiful handmade ring. Oh, and check out that wonderful centerpiece idea! A beautiful arrangement of flowers enclosed by glass! Such a pretty presentation! Also, I'm absolutely smitten with the bridal party attire. I love how each dress is a little bit different, and I adore how they have incorporated shades of pink and peach.
