{An Enchanted Evening}: Sky Blue, Camel & Ivory

April 3, 2011

{Sky Blue, Camel & Ivory}

This pretty pairing was inspired by the sky at daybreak, when soft shades of blue and camel blend together like watercolors. It's peaceful and uplifting, and, above all, it represents a fresh start. And did you notice that this palette includes two new colors? Sky blue and Camel! I don't know about you, but I'm loving how effortless this palette is. Sky blue is light and airy while camel makes such a great neutral. Similar to latte, it's just a slight bit lighter. I love the idea of giving the head table the royal treatment by hanging a canopy of sheer, cloud-like fabric overhead. Notice how the draped effect is played up by laying pieces of sky-blue linen across the table from chair to chair? This serves as both runners and place mats. Such a great idea! And charming too. {continued...}

Details We Love
bridal style & reception tables


For centerpieces I love the idea of using a blend of dahlias, Majolica, spray roses, and porcelain vine to bring these ethereal colors to life. Plus who can resist those chavari chairs? Not me! Those truly set the mood for this wedding and create such an enchanted vibe. The other idea I'm loving is that creative escort card display! See how to make it here! So what do you think about the two new colors we just introduced?

Do you think that I can use these colors during the morning. The chapel where I'll marry is mostly cream and ivory with some shades of light brown. Please e-mail me, any of you who understands about color matching :)
