One of my favorite color combinations is one of the simplest: pink and blue. I love hot pink with navy, or maybe hot pink and aqua, or today, pale peachy pink with French blue. It is sweet, classic, and perfect for a garden luncheon. Hang a crystal chandelier from a tree to dress things up, and place various vintage bottles of tulips on tables to dress things down. And how perfect is the detail of lacing the groom’s shoes with blue laces?

Mood: classic garden romance
Palette: French blue, pale peachy pink

    Kathryn, I have been ‘stalking’ your blog for some time now and I just absolutely LOVE IT! I just can’t seem to stay away! :)I was hoping that you could help me put an inspiration board together. It is for a March wedding, using the colors navy blue, gold, and white. The wedding will be held in Austin, TX out on the lake (half inside, half outside). I want to aviod any ‘seaside’ themes- we are looking for something elegany, fun and unique all at the same time. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!!!!Ashley
