Not many flowers come in blue, blue signature cocktails look like Windex (I’m sorry, but nothing you’re supposed to eat should be that color), but blue patterns – both on fabric and on paper – are some of my favorites. And, largely inspired by the darling blue church photo by Laura Dombrowski, I thought I’d play with blue in a more rustic setting.

Mood: rural sophistication
Palette: china blue, khaki

    Love it. My wedding is this Saturday and my color is antique blue. Beautiful, but difficult to match. I had no idea finding blue flowers was so difficult until this process. Blue hydrangea, tweedia, and muscari are good summer picks.Thank you for this blog. You’ve been my daily inspiration.
