I will be on the road most of tomorrow, so I’m posting Wednesday’s board a little early. I don’t know about you, but I could use a little dose of sunshine, and this board is just the thing.

Mood: sunny delight
Palette: citrus oranges and yellows, white, green

This board is for Ann, who sent in such a lovely request. She wanted some help figuring out how to pull together a romantic, feminine event that still fits with the Navy dress whites many of the men will be wearing. Her wedding will be after dark, and she wants to incorporate calla lilies, ostrich feathers, coconut cake, and varying shades of purple ribbon. To make her “Midsummer Night’s Dream” vision work with these various elements, I used a palette of white and purples. Ann was also concerned that, as a New Yorker getting married in the South, she wouldn’t have a good sense of what makes up Southern style. Honestly, I think this is an event that could work just about anywhere. . .what do you think? If this palette seems too dark, I would incorporate more greenery. Some other alternatives are coconut cupcakes in place of a large cake, more lavender and less plum, and lanterns instead of strings of lights.

Mood: evening romance
Palette: plum, lavender, white

One of my favorite things about Snippet & Ink is that I get to put together boards for all kinds of events. Here is an example of a board that, even though I might not choose it for myself, it’s so fun to imagine.

Cami wrote me to request some help in pulling together a board for her April wedding at the Atlanta History Center’s grand ballroom. Her bridesmaid dresses are brown, and she wants mostly white and green flowers with splashes of pink. There are so many wonderful ways to pull those colors together, so I used the photo Cami sent of her venue as the starting point. What an incredible space! The nicest thing about having a venue like this is that because it’s so beautiful on it’s own, centerpieces are really the only decorating that needs to happen.

Mood: ballroom elegance
Palette: white, brown, green, pink

Since it doesn’t look like I’ll be flying out of the Bay Area any time soon (can we talk about the overturned semis, closed bridges, and crashing debris?), I thought I’d post a board. This is for my sweet friend Michelle who is marrying my other sweet friend Michael in a southern wedding early this summer. I like Michelle’s choice of colors – ivory, olivey green, and coral. I tried to put together a board that is classic and incorporates Southern elements like magnolia flowers and sweet tea.

Mood: classic Southern style
Palette: green, coral, white
