Color Inspiration: Slate Blues, Mustard and Ivory

Week one at Notable Inspiration was filled with vintage, natural and romantic elements so I figured I would change things up a bit today for this week's Color Inspiration. Introducing: An affair that, to me, speaks of country club meets French Country meets a teeny touch of modern. Can you handle all that? If so, you could be in for a great, sophisticated affair with a classic country color palette- blues, in this case slate, mustard yellow and ivory.

I'm a bit head-over-heels for seersucker suits right now (Rumor has it that Club Monaco will be carrying them this spring), and this affair was PERFECT to throw them in. Blue seersucker with yellow pom flowers (officially called billy balls) and bouquets to match. Dark blue, hindering on the edge of navy, bridesmaid dresses (I adore the one pictured by Nostalgia) and a sweet, short wedding dress all with pops of mustard yellow- flats, clutches and all!

The French Country comes out to star in the reception decor. Printed table cloths (the one from Anthropologie is ideal) topped with antique-inspired, painted yellow pails and candle holders, and what about hanging mismatched frames to showcase your place cards? This beautiful design by Sadie Olive can so easily be translated into a great place setting- printed napkins, slate blue chargers and French-inspired menu cards, all tied together and topped with a delicate sweetheart rose. Don't forget the dainty cupcakes for dessert-- check out The Nest to learn the recipe for the cupcakes pictured below! And who could resist the edition of French pastries as well? Bon App├ętit!
