{Pretty Patterns}: A Palette of Black, Taupe, Antique Gold + White

{Black, Taupe, Antique Gold & White}

When it comes to weddings, I'm all about incorporating pretty patterns! Stripes, polka dots, gingham, chevron, swirls - you name it... I love them! Because to me, patterns are such an easy way to add a touch of fun and whimsy to your day. Take this palette for instance - see how easy it is to mix and match patterns? I love how the gingham necktie contrasts with that striped table runner! {continued...}

Plus when you mix patterns, you can easily incorporate all kinds of details. From vintage to modern, this palette has all kinds of influences - and yet, it somehow just works! I think one of my favorite details here has to be the monogrammed cookies! Don't those just look so elegant? It's unexpected details like this that will make your guests say 'wow.' So tell me... what kind of patterns do you love to see used in weddings?

Oh yes, when you have the "Perfect Palette" (*wink wink*), mixing & matching patterns is a fabulous idea!! Love your board as usual, Ms. Chrissy and so honored that you included our chocolate cameo box in it!

In any case, you should treat yourself to the hair sample as it arrives on the day of days later that everything is perfect.

Lovely, lovely gold! You know...for the longest time I had an aversion to gold and now I'm just loving it. I really dig how our likes change like that! Happy Friday back :-)
