#463 | Robin’s Egg Blue

Well, it took me long enough, but here’s today’s inspiration board! Robin’s egg blue for a sophisticate Spring wedding. Creamy white and outdoor garden green keep it fresh and sophisticated, as does using mostly white flowers for bouquets, with ribbons in blue. And for anyone who has the original issue of Martha Stewart Weddings that has the blue cake in it, you’ll be able to see that the pale blue frosting is flecked with vanilla beans, making it look just like a robin’s egg!

Mood: sophisticated spring garden
Palette: robin’s egg blue, spring green, cream
