Board #453 | Tuxedo & Mint

This inspiration board didn’t start out with an accent color, but there is the slightest hint of mint green on the walls of Lisa Lefkowitz’s photograph, and that inspired the rest of these image choices. I imagine a chic cocktail party, or (yet again) a champagne and dessert reception. Though it may take place in a gorgeous mansion, and though the men may be in black tie attire, formality is no reason to exclude whimsical touches, such as calligraphy cootie catchers or a sweet snack of hot beignets. Though they are certainly not major elements in any wedding, they’re a fun touch if you feel up to executing them.

Mood: polished, sweet
Palette: tuxedo black, crisp white, a touch of mint green

    I love this timelessly elegant color palette (what could be more classic than black, white, & pops of green?!) with the addition of whimsical touches to make it a modern, unforgettable occasion. The beignets & cootie catchers are the little details that guests would remember long after the wedding day!
