I know we’re descending into winter, but I couldn’t resist the cheery inspiration of this gorgeous bouquet by The Green Vase and the Pierre Deux pattern. Not to mention both of the darling dresses from Flora & Henri. So spring it is. Though I didn’t fully embrace the bird motif in this board, it certainly lends itself to that. I hope this gives you a little smile whether or not it’s snowing where you are.

Mood: country spring sweetness
Palette: French country blue and yellow

We’ve had flurries twice so far, and the temperature is way down, so I thought it might be time for a winter wedding board. I’m not quite ready to go all out with snowflakes and pinecones; instead I thought I’d ease into the season with fresh green in the form of wheatgrass centerpieces and a moss wreath, and bright white in the form of cable-knit details. Winter weddings lend themselves to being more formal than in other seasons, but I wanted to keep this one playful with things like pinwheels, cupcakes and and a gold polka-dotted dress.

Mood: playful, winter
Palette: grass green, white

Elizabeth Dye‘s darling “cupcake” dress inspired this gold and white wedding board. I imagine a sweet garden ceremony, followed by a simple luncheon, and of course cupcakes for dessert! Gold can be so over the top, but in doses, and with a vintage touch, it is nothing but charming.

Mood: vintage cupcake charm
Palette: gold, white

How about a swanky black-tie soiree to take us into the weekend? A palette of aubergine and pomegranate red, accented with platinum details, works well for both a fall and a winter event. I imagine plenty of glowing candles lining the aisle at the ceremony and the tables at the reception. A signature cocktail would surely include champagne…

Mood: timeless, swanky
Palette: plum, pomegranate, platinum
