Board #119 | Berry Bliss

So sorry about the late post today!

Aimee met her fiance at a farmers’ market, so she wants to incorporate some seasonal fruit into her wedding. She also wants to include global details to reflect her experiences in Africa and the Middle East, as well as her fiance’s Vietnamese heritage and time spent in the South Pacific. In my mind, food is one of the best ways to incorporate global details. Have hors d’oeuvres and edible favors that bring to mind other food traditions. Also, Aimee has some beautiful Vietnamese silk lanterns from her fiance’s parents, and I think she should definitely hang them in the trees, possibly along with some long cuts of colorful ribbon. Another idea is to have something (maybe the word “love”) translated in all the languages Aimee wants represented, and have those either be the names of tables, or printed on napkins and matchbooks. Here is my board for Aimee, with summer berries and loose, natural floral arrangements (Ariella Chezar is brilliant at this type of arrangement, as is Michaele Thunen).

Mood: farmers’ market goes global
Palette: berries, persimmon, green
