It’s been far too long since I posted a beach-centric inspiration board! I wanted to create something light and sweet, with pops of bright colors against a white sand backdrop. Something that felt like summer to me. Enter popsicles and a low-key dinner with pillow seating. Ray-Ban Wayfarers, vintage postcards, and a rainbow sherbet cake remind guests (and the happy couple) not to take things too seriously. As though that’s even possible when you’re probably barefoot…
