Board #519 | Love and Lilacs

Happy March! Is spring here yet?

In my mind, I could smell lilacs the entire time I was working on this inspiration board. I love it! And this is my favorite kind of purple – the kind you find in nature, against a backdrop of green and white. I also made this board because I was feeling sort of an overdose on wedding details and trends, and wanted something that focused on just a few pretty things. One gorgeous flower, repeated. Champagne and cake, and maybe some of your aunt’s famous shortbread (with or without a personalized stamp). Lawn games and a jazz band for a sweet afternoon celebration. Lovely, but nothing fussy.

(While we’re on the subject of wedding overdosing, you might like this post over on A Practical Wedding. A little sanity for any brides who might be feeling overwhelmed with ideas.)
