I think what I love about this pretty party palette is the fact that you can easily incorporate fun and festive decor. For instance, how fun are these decorative poms? I love how they literally dance above the reception space. Oh, and take a look at that pretty drink presentation. I love how the color palette is incorporated into not only the drink themselves but also into the bunting hanging above. So creative! So tell me... what do you think about this palette? And is it getting you in the mood for the upcoming warmer months?

{The Perfect Palette}: 10 Palette Inspiring Centerpieces

January 27, 2012
Boy, this week went by fast! I guess that's what happens when you find yourself busier than ever! Today I thought it would be fun to put together some color palettes inspired by wedding centerpieces! As you might recall, last week I showed you how to use wedding bouquets as inspiration for your color palette and today's post is very similar in that we're looking to florals for color inspiration. In turn, if you've already decided upon a palette, these ideas can also show you ways to incorporate color into your wedding day florals.











Personally, I always see the value in seeing real life examples of how color is used to bring weddings to life. I suppose that is because I'm an extremely visual person. Color is truly at the heart of any design related project and wedding styling is no exception. So tell me... what color palettes are inspiring you here lately? Do you see a palette that you might have not considered previously? I truly hope these palettes will inspire your color palettes and I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

{Lavender + Lace}: A Palette of Lavender, Antique Gold + White

January 23, 2012

{Lavender, Antique Gold + White}

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend. Today I woke up feeling absolutely inspired by the color lavender. I'm not sure how you feel about this color, but for me it's always been one of those colors that has all kinds of feel good, calming vibes. It's a relaxed color that has a very romantic feel to it. It's soft, elegant and let's be honest... it's all kinds of pretty! When you think about putting together colors for your wedding, have you considered lavender?

I think lavender is definitely one of those colors that we should see more of in the coming year. Because what's not to love? This color is truly perfect. I love how you can easily incorporate a vintage theme without feeling like you have to over do it. Lace and lavender were born to go hand in hand if you ask me. So what do you think? Is lavender on your short list for colors to use for your upcoming Spring or Summer wedding?

6 Palette Inspiring Wedding Bouquets!

January 20, 2012
When it comes to defining your wedding day style, I know that some of you are struggling. ''Where should I start,'' you ask? "What colors should I use,'' you say? Well, I'm here to tell you that I know it can feel overwhelming. But lucky for you, you're not alone! I'm here to help and I'm here to break it down for you so to speak. One of my favorite ways to find new and exciting color palettes is to look to nature. Florals, to be more specific! Bouquets are truly little pieces of art, wouldn't you agree? So why not look to bouquets for some wedding day inspiration?


As you can see, there are a lot of different options out there. Sometimes all it takes is finding that one picture that speaks to you, that inspires you...


I for one am totally into pastels here lately. Especially ones that have an almost beachy feel to them. Looking to throw a beach wedding, but tired of the old turquoise and white color palettes you keep seeing? Why not use something like this?


Or this for that matter? You wouldn't think that gray and shades of pink could be used in a beachy locale, but then you see a bouquet like this and I don't know about you, but this instantly inspires me to see the possibilities...


Looking to put together an elegant affair for Fall? Tired of burnt orange and brown? Why not use a palette of rich purples, greens and grays?


And this lovely palette! Why not use something unexpected like this dreamy shade of teal with fuchsia, shades of pink and antique gold? I can see this palette looking perfect for late Summer or even Fall.


And what about this bouquet? I think this one has a romantic and unexpected tropical vibe to it too. I don't think I've seen a wedding in these colors! So what do you think? Do you like the idea of looking to florals for color inspiration? I happen to think it's a fun way to find your wedding style and get inspired!

January 18, 2012

{Black, Gray + White}

Black and white will always be a classic color palette for weddings. Add in a touch of soft gray and what do you have? A palette worth swooning over, if you ask me! I don't care how many years go by or how many color trends we see come and go, black and white is here to stay. And rightfully so! Because what's not to love about this sophisticated color palette? It's elegant, it's striking and most importantly, it's an easy palette to bring to life! Can't really go wrong if you ask me.

I think what I love most about this color palette are all of the fun things you can do with it. What about this color palette do you love? I know some of you color lovers will look at this palette and feel as if something is missing - like a splash of color maybe? But I really do think that there is something to be said about a classic palette like this one. It's a sort of beauty that truly is unmatched.

Hi there, friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Today I thought it would be fun to kick off the week with some pretty eye candy! Green and white stripes really are fun and I don't know what it is, but I'm seriously smitten with striped straws here lately. Have you noticed? There is just something so fun about stripes. Okay, so before I go any further, I have a little announcement to make!
