I haven’t posted a fresh, woodsy inspiration board in awhile, and I thought it was about time to put one together. One of my favorite details here is the cluster of centerpieces arranged in painted coffee cans – eco- and budget-friendly, and they can double as favors. I also included one of my favorite Bella Figura invitations (from my sample pack!), to highlight a contest that they’re sponsoring…

Mood: lush, green
Palette: moss, twig, white

Bella Figura is giving away $350 toward any of their products to one Snippet & Ink reader! Just like I’ve created an inspiration board here, I’d love to know which of Bella Figura’s pieces is your favorite, and what type of wedding it would inspire. Just head over to their website and take a look around, then leave a comment here mentioning your favorite piece, and describing wedding details you imagine might go along with it. You have until next Tuesday (January 27) to enter, and I’ll announce the winner next Friday (January 30). Good luck!

Last week, before leaving California, I had the pleasure of meeting Melissa of Ruby Press. If you haven’t seen her blog, definitely take a look – she shares such special things, and has such great taste. We met up for afternoon tea at the darling (and brand new!) Crown & Crumpet. Not only are the tea and treats delightfully good, but the place itself is a confection of stylish florals, chandeliers, and pink-and-white checkered floors. It is absolutely perfect for bridal showers and birthday parties, and I couldn’t help myself – I had to make an inspiration board with Crown & Crumpet in mind.

Mood: sweet, feminine
Palette: hot pink, pale pink, red, white

This palette might be entirely too sweet for some, but I could not resist creating an inspiration board with the colors in the lemon photo by Francine Zaslow. Maybe it is more suited to a bridal shower or a little girl’s birthday party, but I think that if done well, these colors together could make for a lovely wedding.

Mood: sweet, bright, young
Palette: lemon yellow, pistachio green, pink grapefruit

Finally folks – so sorry about the delayed post! Since coco + kelley‘s color week determined that pink is the new color of the year (see my color predictions here), and that gray will be around for awhile, I thought I’d play with those colors together. A wedding board that hopefully adds a touch of romance to your day…

Mood: warm and cool, softly romantic
Palette: pale pink and cool gray

How fabulous is that little veil by Thelma Designs? I haven’t seen anything quite like it, and I couldn’t resist creating an inspiration board with it. For some reason it struck me as a vintage piece, so I went with a wedding board with a bit of retro charm. What would you include here?

Mood: retro charm
Palette: navy blue, white, gold
