Like I said last week, I’ve been having fun revisiting some of my past inspiration boards, including this Lemon and Iris post from three years ago. The arrangement with lemons and purple irises is one of my all-time favorites, and I’ve re-imagined a simple garden wedding with lemon desserts, lemon cocktails, and lemon marmalade favors to take home. And a fun dancing dress for the bride!


Mood: cheery spring romance
Palette: purple iris, lemon yellow, garden green

    I think lemons have to be the most versatile fruit produced by nature – so lovely and so useful! Thanks for the post.
