Mood: simple summer backyard charm
Palette: strawberry punch, lawn

Have I already mentioned how much I love plaid right now (along with stripes and gingham)? It’s charming and kitschy, and there’s nothing fussy or stuffy about it – and it makes for a great motif. Use it on ribbons, envelope liners, shirts, socks, napkins. Use solid white – and a green lawn – as a backdrop to keep the plaid from looking too busy. I also like this as a take on a pink and green palette, where the pink is punchy and instead of pale.

    That table cloth would be gorgeous. I can just picture a whole reception of them and think it would be incredibly lovely.
