This color palette is too fun, hence the title. Melissa is getting married at a country club, and her colors are pink, green, teal and orange. There’s a lot to work with there, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed by so many fabulous colors, so I tried to pull them together in a way that was fun without looking psychedelic. Pam‘s gorgeous bouquet has made an appearance in one of my previous boards, but it was too perfect not to be the main inspiration for this board.

Mood: vibrant, outgoing
Palette: pink, orange, lime green, turquoise

Valerie’s reception is going to be at the Wolfsonian, an Art Deco venue in Miami. As soon as I saw a picture of the gold and green fountain in the lobby of the museum, I thought of this Art Deco piece by Tamara Lempicka. The palette comes from both the fountain and that piece of art, and the calla lilies fit perfectly into the Art Deco styling. And of course, to celebrate Valerie’s Cuban heritage, mojitos! A great bridesmaid gift would be an engraved gold compact…

Mood: Art Deco inspired Miami chic
Palette: emerald green, gold, white

Tyler’s sweet friend over at Pretty Little Things requested this board for her: a chic, fall wedding with fall colors and a red velvet cake. In order to keep things from feeling rustic (harder than you might imagine with those fall colors!), I used the red velvet cake as my focus point, so I ended up with a red, white, and chocolate palette. I hope this board is helpful for you Tyler!

Mood: fall chic
Palette: red, white, chocolate

For those of you worried that your wedding isn’t big enough, or unique enough, or whatever, take a look at this post by Offbeat Bride. It’s a nice reminder that your wedding day isn’t about out-doing other brides, but rather about expressing who you and your fiance really are, sharing your special day with the people who matter most to you, and getting to spend forever with someone you love.

I’ve been wanting to put together a farmers’ market inspired board for awhile, and I finally have enough images to make it work. Fruit is a wonderful non-floral point of inspiration, and I think this board proves that vegetables are, too.

Mood: flavorful, bountiful, rustic
Palette: red, yellow, green

Thank you to Ms. Martha from Nibs (the source of those fabulous notecards) for also pointing out the adorable radish and carrot pins at Anthropologie. Martha, you and I might have to team up one of these days…


Of course I only became aware of this fabulous cake by Bakery Bar after posting my Farmers’ Market board.
