Boards #35 and #36 | Red and White

Wow. Sorry for the late post again! I seem to be having some serious trouble with the internet lately. Anyway, here they are… Today we have two red and white boards, one for early summer and one for winter.

Board #35: Strawberry & Cream

In the early summer, red and white makes me think of berries and cream, picnic linens, and sweet simple fun. I imagined this board with a touch of French flair.

Mood: sweet, simply elegant
Palette: red, white, bits of black

Row 2: photo via {frolic}, Eavis & Brown dress from Brides UK, flags from Vintage Weave, cake and French poppies both from MS

Row 3: table by Art Fool, necklace by Saylor Sage, red and white napkin, drinks and Paris photo both from Brides

Update! These coasters by Sarah Ridgley would be perfect for this event.

Board #35: Cranberry & Snow

Add some sophistication to a snow white event with rich holiday red.

Mood: holiday sophistication
Palette: cranberry, white

    Some brides feel that they are cheated by having a winter wedding.. can’t be outdoors, certain flowers not in season, etc. But you’ve given a whole board worth of reasons to love one in mid-January. Beautiful.
