Flowers


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

So many people avoid using flowers because they think that they are too expensive especially the tall arrangements. SOOOO untrue!  Look at the gorgeous baby’s breath arrangements below.  All they need is a ribbon in one of your wedding colors to make them match your decor.

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….

I can not begin to tell you how thankful I am that it is Friday.  I am so stinking tired.  Ready for a pseudo-restful weekend of listening to my hubs speak at a conference and preach at church on Sunday.

Can we talk about how lovely these colors are together and how much I love these monograms and pomanders?  What perfect spring or summer decor!  To add to the gorgeous yellow, orange and lime flowers, a bride could also bring in tons of lemons, oranges and limes as stunning (and cost effective) decor!  LOVE it!

As a kid, I loved theme birthday parties.  Most of them were Minnie Mouse themed (even as a high school student), but none the less, a good theme is a great base for planning any party (especially a wedding).  For my wedding we interwove my love for pink and green with our love for William and Mary (Go Tribe!).  While it is not a super firm theme, it was a great jumping off point.  We brought in old script-y fonts, traditional invitations and paper, and tables named after famous alum/founders (like Thomas Jefferson, John Tyler, James Monroe) as a nod to our very old Alma mater.

If you are thinking about a theme, it is wonderful to pick something that relates to you and your fiance (think cultural).  Sometimes it affects the food choices, sometimes it affects the flowers, sometimes it affects the colors, and sometimes it affects every aspect of your big day.  Comment on this post or email me if you are working on a theme and would like a little help.  I would love to come up with a fabulous inspiration board for you.

Anywho – I loved this theme wedding that I saw on Hostess with the Mostess this morning.  I think it leans towards an Indian or Moroccan theme.  I love all of the vibrant colors, the use of beautiful fabrics and flowers, and the gorgeous invitation with a peacock feather (which is seen again in all of the arrangements and the on the cake).

Hope you have a festive Thursday!

Another crazy week!  Event 1 is done, but now we are prepping for event 2!  Good gravy, is it Friday yet?

Do you remember when I posted the soft pink and gray inspiration board in April? Wouldn’t this dress from Macy’s be adorable with that kind of color scheme?  It would also be a great dress to wear to a bridal shower or wedding (or out to dinner)!  🙂  I love it with the soft pink bouquet.
