Board #248 | Magnolias & Moonshine

I’m not sure if this is apparent from your side of the computer, but things over here have been incredibly hectic lately. I was away for two weeks, and as soon as I got back I had to pack up my life and move into a new place. In the midst of getting settled, I drove 14 hours to a friend’s wedding this weekend, and then yesterday drove 14 hours back (what made me think driving there was the best plan?). Needless to say, I’m still trying to get situated and re-organized. To help myself catch up, I’m doing some re-posting today, with two inspiration boards that I made awhile back for’s Design Roundtable. Some of you may have seen them already, so I apologize for the repeat, but I actually really liked the way these turned out, so I’m happy to share them again. Hoping to be back to normal tomorrow. I’m not making any promises or anything, but I’m working on it!

Magnolias are one of those incredible smelling flowers that look perfect singly in a bud vase or mason jar. You can even carry one on its own as a bouquet! Magnolias are feminine without being dainty, and they are the central inspiration for this wedding board. I imagine this wedding being fairly small, on the casual side, with someone’s great-uncle passing around a jar of moonshine at some point during the reception. And if I were to make this board over again, I would probably go with homemade cakes or cupcakes in place of the more formal (though gorgeous) cake I included here.

Mood: soft, romantically rustic
Palette: green, cream, pale slate
