Do you ever combine 2 words to make a new word?  For instance, my husband refuses to call a floor lamp anything other than a “flamp.”  Today, the bouquet of gray and yellow flowers made me want to title this post “Grellow.”

Sorry, my brain is mushy today.source


Crazy week!  So thankful it is Friday.

Aren’t these flowers stunning?  Everything from the bouquet and the centerpieces right down to the boutonniere.

Have a great weekend!

This bouquet makes me want to sway back and forth like Cinderella.  It is so incredibly romantic. SWOON….

A sweet friend of mine is getting married, and she is trying to figure out her color scheme.  She knows she wants the classic red flowers, but she is open to other accent colors.  One of my favorite color combos is Tiffany blue and red.  It is a modern take on the gorgeous red flowers that everyone enjoys.  I<3 Tiffany blue!  It makes me think of those fabulous little boxes and the stunning things that are inside those boxes (my hubby spoils me).  🙂

Here is the inspiration board that I came up with:

Red roses and blue bird flowers, blue dresses and red balloons, red carnations, 3 piece centerpiece, red and blue table-scape, red peep toe, invitation, ballroom set-up, cake, candy station, red soda, blue candy, red dress

Today, I had to take 2 trips to Sam’s Club to get all of the supplies that I need for my next big campus event.  CRAZINESS!  So thankful for my new car and my student worker, Destiny, who was such a trooper with her crazy boss.  $700 later, my office is a little more chaotic, but at least it is organized chaos.  I keep telling myself this so that I don’t go crazy.  🙂

On to the more important item of the day…Flowers.  I heart these so very much.  Pink and garden-y=love.  What do you think?

Also, please notice the lovely bridesmaids’ gowns from J.Crew that I posted about here.  I would love to wear this dress in a wedding!

Last week I posted a fairly new color scheme inspiration board that is becoming fairly popular in homes and weddings alike: gray and yellow.  It truly has a modern feel and flair without being too edge-y, if you know what I mean.

Today, I’d like to take a look at another color palette also featuring the color gray to show what a difference one color can make.  Substituting the bright yellow for a pink hue changes the look from modern to romantic and from playful to soft.  What do you think?

Here are the links to where I found the images:

3 pics with peonies and candles; bridal party with umbrellas, long table with gray runner, and groom in vest; shoes (upper right corner); white cake; gray cake; drink with striped straw; gray suits with pink ties, flower girl & ring bearer, wedding dress with gray ribbon, gray table with pink sash, pink hydrangea invite, monogram

Lace is synonymous with bridal gowns (and grandmas).  It can make up the entirety of a dress or be a slight accent at the neckline.  I think that most people associate lace only with wedding dresses or veils, but there are definitely other ways to use lace on your wedding day that will not make you think of your grandma. Here are a few of them…

See…lace isn’t just for grandma anymore!
