There are lots of ways to do a green and brown event. I chose mossy green and earthy brown, a sort of forest underbrush or riverbank in early spring, before all the colors of late spring and early summer have exploded onto the scene. It’s a little like a quiet fairy tale.

Mood: natural, elegant earthiness

Palette: mossy green, earthy brown

    I think you do such a great job with these inspiration boards. I’m in the midst of planning my northern Minnesota backyard wedding and would love it if you did a board based on an “up north” theme. I’d love to incorporate birch bark and other rustic things for our tented wedding without it being tooooo “up north.” My maids have different tea-length dresses in different colors. One is eggplant purple, one is fuschia and one is pink rose. I have green glass mason jars and would love to use them as lanterns or vases. We have mismatched china from the thrift store for the dessert plates. We’re serving a buffet dinner with walleye and locally harvested wild rice. I’d love to see what you come up with! Thanks!

    You are so amazing and talented! Now I know what you do with your wedding box or is it boxes now? I would love you to make an inspiration board for me (hint hint).

    I’m planning my spring garden while I wait out the winter months, so this board entralled me. Those pinecone and acorn boutonnieres are a great idea! A au natural-themed event like this would go over so well with my green-friends. My third vote is for #55, Greenery Scenery.
