{Lemon Zest}: Shades of Yellow, Gray + White

{Shades of Yellow, Gray + White}

Shades of yellow paired with a pinch of gray is a palette that has long been high on my list of color combo favorites. Because, quite frankly, these color are just made to go hand in hand. Bursting with sunshine and feel good vibes...this is the sort of palette you can do so many fun things with. For instance, yellow bridesmaid dresses! What could be more fun-filled that seeing a bright and cheery color like this on your friends? Oh, and when it comes to adding a touch of whimsy... what could be more whimsical than chocolate made to look like vintage buttons? And in your color palette! I can imagine these looking so charming for a wedding favor. Want to know where you can find these? Check out the whimsical collection over at The Frosted Petticoat!

Hi, you make mind blowing ideas and a spectacular article here. Last time, when I saw your site this was a little good but today I visit the web site again and find that you guys making a very smart work on the site. Today Web surfing is run very fast and a huge competition over the web is spread. So it is quite interesting. Thanks…
