Ever since the last issue of Martha Stewart Weddings came out, I’ve been wanting to make an inspiration board around this gardenia bouquet. The combination of a timeless, elegant flower with the unexpected pop of orange-heavy coral seemed perfect to me, and I wanted to make a wedding board that reflected that sense of tradition with a twist. These colors would work well in any season, and play off one another beautifully – and they’re a nice twist on pink and green. (Also, if you haven’t seen the original article from Martha Stewart Weddings, it’s a wonderful concept: inspired bouquets – much like inspired wedding boards!)

Mood: tradition with a twist

I thought I’d try and start the year off with a sweet, bright, and cheerful wedding board. The palette and mood of today’s board were inspired by Eva Lindh’s sweet photo – darling curls, a green gingham ribbon, and pops of orange and yellow. And I know they’re not exactly original, but for added sweetness, how can you resist balloons and cupcakes?

Mood: simple spring charm
Palette: spring green, pale aqua, yellow, orange, white

Update! A lot of you have asked me about the Martha Stewart notecards, and my original link no longer works, which makes me think they’re not available anymore. If anyone has any luck tracking them down, please let us know in the comments!
