Color Inspiration: Mint Green, Poppy Red and Peony Pink

One of my favorite flowers at the moment are peonies. Pink peonies to be exact. They are so feminine yet so full of texture, and this inspiration board sure has a lot of them. I paired the bubblegum peony pink with a poppy red and minty green for a great spring palette. Because I don't know about all of you, but I'm more than ready for spring.

My obvious suggestion for the bridal party are bouquets of pink peonies, and only pink peonies. I love the idea of finding print bridesmaid dresses all completely different but tied together with a unifying color palette. I'm loving this one from McGregor Girl. Stick to vintage for the flower girl too with this adorable skirt, it was made from a vintage pillowcase! And it has just enough of that beautiful mint color peeking out from underneath. Use pops of red throughout with the groom's boutonnieres and the bride's shoes.

More peonies at the reception, of course! Beyond using them as your jumping off point for florals, these peony post cards make gorgeous table numbers or even menu cards! This mint letter holder is one of my favorite finds, what a great display for your place cards! The pink votive holders and serving bowls are just too perfect for me to handle. Pop these pastels with poppy red place settings! So... if you weren't ready for spring before, are you ready now?
