Friday, July, 22, 2011  |  Color Palettes


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!

Hi Everyone! Coming to you all on a Thursday this week, but don't you worry, Friday is jussst around the corner! :-) For today, rest your eyes on a color combo that is energizing enough to help you make it through the week, yet calm enough to ease you into a restful holiday weekend! This soft yellow added to a dreamy barely-there pink makes the most beautiful summer combo! Add Khaki as a neutral and then things really pop! The result is simple, pure, sunny-day romance... Enjoy! :-)

Tuesday, June, 28, 2011  |  Inspiration

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

Hillary shares the info with us......."I wanted to do something fun and different for the bridal shower invitations for my friends' celebration. I was kinda tired of seeing the same "budget friendly" invitations out there. The whole process was quite easy.

From Christine......"Our wedding invitations - they were QUITE a labor of love! I adore vintage ephemera and papers and am constantly picking up all sorts of treasures I have really no use for! So, I wanted to create an invitation suite that was a little package of treasures for our guests to enjoy.

Stefanie shares all the "411"........"In my opinion, sending out Save the Dates has become a necessity in the wedding planning process - and not simply because people need a more and more advanced notice of a wedding they are being invited to, but I think because it has become such a common thing to do and wedding guests expect to receive something they can put up on their fridge.  

Because of this, we really wanted to send out Save the Dates, but if you're on any kind of a budget, these little notes you just "pop in the mail" can take a good chunk out of what you expect to spend on the invitations themselves. So we rolled up our sleeves and decided to get thrifty!
