“Everything old is new again”, “vintage”, “retro”, or even “what goes around comes around”. These are phrases you may hear or think of when it comes to planning a vintage or victorian inspired wedding. With a simple, yet striking and sophisticated, black and white or ivory color scheme, it goes to show that basic is not boring, and neutrals are never out of style. In this inspiration board, I have used several accessories, such as the feather fascinator, and the detailed ring pillow, to demonstrate that the smallest details can make a stylish impact. You could add a pop of bright color to break up the black and white, such as lime green, taxicab yellow, or fushia. Or you could soften this pallete with the palest shades of pink, blue, or lavender. The results will be visually arresting, and highly memorable. Enjoy!!
Ballet Wedding Inspiration Board
Spring is here! Think soft breezes, flowering trees, a riot of colorful flowers everywhere. It’s the time of year when we wear lighter, softer, flowing fabrics, when little girls dress in their spring best for parties, Easter, recitals, showers and weddings. That being said, I used two of nature’s prettiest colors, baby pink and white, and my love of the ballet, to create this lovely inspiration board. One of my current clients is a dancer, and this board is happily dedicated to her. Enjoy!!
I thought I would share an idea for styling a wedding, that I find utterly charming. Vintage feel weddings are very popular right now, with lots of homemade touches and antique pieces. One concept I am working with right now is yellow gingham and milk glass. Yellow is such a cheery color, and great for any affair. Milk glass items are definitely hot right now, as white pops against the yellow. Add vintage lace trims such as eyelet, battenburg, and hand crocheted-doilies, and you have a sweet and sentimental setting for a fabulous party. Below are some examples of this look:

Hope you enjoy this concept, and will be inspired for your own celebration!
When you think of yellow and black as colors for your wedding theme, what images come to mind? Sunflowers, taxicabs, or bumblebees? How about Sylvester & Tweety Bird? These are all fun ideas, and you can plan a whimsical event with any of them. On the other hand, if you crave a little more sophistication, you will find that you can implement this striking color combination easily, for a truly stylish and memorable affair.
Black and white are the classic and timeless colors for a wedding. Add lemon yellow or shining gold to the pallette, and you will have one of the freshest mixes for this year. Several popular wedding magazines feature this color scheme, including the Winter 2008 issues of InStyle Weddings. You can see more great ideas at their website: http://www.instyleweddings.com/weddings/
No matter how you decide to showcase your tastes, it will all “bee” a labor of love! Enjoy!!
Here we are, at the beginning of another season of awards shows. With the current writer’s strike, I miss all the glamour and glitz that goes with them. I missed watching the actors arrive on the red carpet for the Golden Globes on Sunday, and who knows how many more we all will not be able to view, the People’s Choice Awards, the Oscars? At any rate, I decided to satisfy my craving for Hollywood Glamour with this board. You never can tell, maybe I will win an award for its design? Enjoy!
