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

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! :-)

Good Morning again, loves! It's finally Friday and you know what that means?! It's the first official weekend of summer! As you're all getting ready to head out to the pool, beach, or basically anywhere else that is slam packed with other people, take a moment to rest your eyes on a perfect therapeutic color palette. As the summer is here, I will be finding some brighter colors to inspire us in the sunshine, but this week has been crazy and all I have been able to think of is getting a good night of sleep! So I decided on the calming elements of lavender. This popular, light, dusty shade of purple is very versatile. It can be made playful for a daytime wedding by adding shades of yellow, or dressed up with deeper shades of purple, such as plum. For today, I wanted to stick with the organic, natural-ness of it. So I chose to pair it with sage & mauve, both equally calm colors. 
So before you start checking off your busy schedule, relax! After all, it is Friday! Dab a bit of lavender-scented oil on your wrists, and let the visual stress-relief begin!

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
