Board #366 | Briar and Berry

Berries are like nature’s jewels and I couldn’t resist creating an inspiration board with them. The strawberry shortcake boards I’ve posted before are certainly appropriate for summer, but they’re far more casual than I imagine today’s wedding board would be. Incorporate a variety of berries, still on the branch, into organic centerpieces, bouquets – even the cake – for unfussy elegance. Baskets are an appropriate second motif here, holding programs and parasols, and maybe bread to pass at dinner.

Mood: easy-going elegance
Palette: berry red, bramble green
