Hi Guys and Happy Friday....let's take today and enjoy a few of the cafe's favorite inspiration boards from our beautiful friend Alisha of Weddings of Whimsy....thanks for all of the lovely inspiration Alisha!......Enjoy!! 

I have some gorgeous color-palette eye candy for you all today!  I am inspired by the refreshing hue of mint. It's kind of the more green version of sky blue... and it's amazingly versatile! I had about five different color combinations in my mind that worked well with mint, but as soon as I saw it next to my favorite hue of pink- the decision was made. Blush is exactly what the name says it is. Its three parts au-natural and two parts happiness. The perfect compliment to cool mint. The best thing about this combo is that I can picture it in a romantic, outdoor wedding just as much as I can see it in an indoor museum venue against stark-white walls. It is the perfect combination for those wishing to create an ethereal look to their wedding while still adding color.  So sit back and soak in this refreshing color palette and be inspired! ~ A

Good Morning Everyone & Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all enjoying your first week of fall, celebrating with Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and breaking out your coziest sweaters!  I have a pretty palette of color inspiration for you today, one that I think is just right to ease us into warmer autumn shades. I adore fall weddings, and I have quite a few that I will be [very happily] attending in the next few weeks. Though I love fall color schemes that showcase deeper colors, I am not fully ready to surrender my favorite lighter hues... which brings me to this elegant & playful, slightly french-inspried color scheme! 
I love the way this pinkish-purplish mauve mingles with the warm-but-soft apricot hues. And I love how this golden brown toffee shade pulls it all together in a perfect "let's get married in October" way! Let me know what you all think of it! As always, thanks a ton for reading!

I was inspired earlier this week by an article in Martha Stewart Living  about jadite, old fashioned green glassware that really puts a pop in your decor. The shades of jadite paired next to any light shade of blue reminded me of seaglass... which brings me to this post! Calming blues and clear, glassy green... what could be a more lovely pair for a spring or summer wedding color palette? One of my favorite things about these seaglass shades are that you don't have to go crazy trying to match everything perfectly. As long as you stay within the same soft tones (no neon lime greens, please.) you will acheive this fresh, serene look.

Happy Friday, Everyone! It's Alisha here. I had a little bit of a break last week and it was so nice to have some vacation time, but I am back this week with another color palette! Today I have for you; Caramel Latte & Dusty Blue Details. It is a combination of pretty sky blues that have been a little toned down and faded, paired with golden and caramel hues. The combo is less committal than the aqua and brown palette that has become so popular. I call this the summertime version, things just seem better in the summer. :-) Enjoy!

It's another very lovely summer Friday at The Cafe, and my mind has been on the ocean all week long! Between Richmond's rainy day skies and these lazy beach day longings, I have come up with a color palette of calm, beautiful blues. You really can't go wrong if you mix different shades of the same color. I would love to see bridesmaids all wear a different shade of blue. So pretty and perfect for summertime! For a color palette of these blues, I like the idea of adding some gold elements, but if you are more of a silver or gray person, that would work well too in tying it all together. Hope you all enjoy your weekend and get a little time to gaze out into the ocean!!! ~ A

Truth be told. I've always been such a girl. Sure, I tried to play with the boys, show them I could hold my own in kickball... but yes, the things that make my heart pound are trimmed in ruffles and lace. Anything thats a little bit too frilly and reminds me of a big, fluffy pink peony- it immediately has my heart (...and also my wallet.)  :-)
Well anyway, all this girliness brings me to today's post... Inspired by the tea time my grandmother used to have every afternoon at 4:00. These tea times were complete with pretty china tea cups and saucers, cookies, homemade swedish coffee bread... everything. And we even had it outside on the porch sometimes. A subtle, old fashioned, tea party theme is ideal for a late afternoon garden wedding, in my mind. But obviously, so many other venues would work as well. It's what you want to do with it that matters! So sit back with some earl grey, and look to be inspired... which one of these ideas would you use? How would you add your personal touch? I'm excited to see what you think!

Happy Friday Everyone! It's Alisha again, I'm so happy to be doing a second post for you all! It's been a great week, but as always, I happily welcome the weekend!

I've got a wonderful treat for all you summer color palette lovers out there. There are certain perfect color combinations that just make my obsessive-creative heart leap!  This is one of those!  I was inspired earlier this week by this gorgeous bouquet that Janie posted in this wedding, and I decided to run with it. It's a well known fact that opposites attract, and almost any shade of Coral and Gray paired together do just that. Something about that dull winter-sky shade paired with summery coral (the perfect mix of watermelon and sunshine...) just oozes happiness without being flashy. The result is exactly what you get when you eat pretzels with M&Ms. Pure joy.        ~ A
