In need of inspiration... for anything? Go to a flea market. This is not a new source of inspiration to many, but it is one that should be required for anyone looking to be inspired. In fact, it's what inspired both wedding palettes this week. This time: green glass bottles. They are so bright and bold. After some thought, I decided to go with a classic pink & green scheme, something I'm not usually fond of. But what you pick the right shades, oh wow is it awesome! Pale pink, vibrant green and a little elegant silver. Yum.
What's more perfect than pink roses? A little here a little there, I adore this dress for your maids and this little headband for your girls! This serving dish is perfectly upcycled into a flower girl basket too, with a little green glass in the jewelry to match. Finish off your look with some flashy (in a good way) silver flats!
I would love to see juliet roses in this palette-- one stem per fabulous green bottle. Serve delicious sorbet in beautiful silver goblets and drape the tables with vintage fabric- pink florals of course! If printed tables are just too much, reserve the fabric for the chairs: full covers, tie backs, anything! And why not make a mosaic guest book out of broken up vintage china? There's two ways to do this. If your guests are willing to get a little messy, you can have them each place a few tiles on a large slab (provide directions calligraphed on pretty paper and delegate one of your bridesmaids to help). Prefer to keep things clean? Assemble it yourself! Place the tiles in any desired pattern, a large tile art piece, a mirror or a frame and have your guests sign on or around it! Gotta get creative with guest books these days!
There you have it, my take on pink and green-- minus the preppy but with a little bit vintage flair!
