Board #256 | Blueprints

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

    I love this board! It feels so carefree. I really like the tree and birds on the invites in the bottom row.

    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.
