An Oldie: Inspiration Board #33: Red & Blue Berries

May 24

Since¬† I’m playing mad catch up today and prepping for a week of meetings. I thought I’d share an inspiration board that some of my new readers may have missed.This board was inspired by berries, but it could easily be translated to a Fourth of July Wedding. And now onto the post:


I love summer berries and I think the deep reds and blues are the perfect inspiration for a late summer wedding. I picture this wedding taking place at a family farm, the bride would wear a bold red dress, and guests would be treated to refreshing berry drinks.

Inspiration Board # 3: Gray & Red Modern Wedding

December 22

Lately, I’ve had quite the love affair with gray & yellow. For this board I decided to branch out a bit and pair gray with a deep red. The invitation in the upper right hand corner by Peculiar Pair Press served as inspiration. Enjoy!

Love Birds

I like when an element of the event design can be used in a couple of different ways. I love this modern and simple centerpiece made of painted manzanita and faux birdies.

From the super talented Rebecca Thuss are these adorable favors.

These birdie themed sticks are suppose to be plant labels, but how cute would they be as seating cards?

Gotta love any clutch from Red Ruby Rose!

And a wedding cake also by Rebecca Thuss. Its perfect for a fall or winter wedding.

Lanterns are some of my favorite ways to add drama to any event design.

I love the way driftwood branches form a psuedo-tree on which the lanterns hang. How pretty would this be as a backdrop for a beach ceremony?

White accodrian lanterns strung in between palm trees; so simple and pretty.

The spiky shape of these star lanterns are so fun and funky. Paired with tons of candles you’ll have instant dramatic lighting for your wedding.

I like when lanterns are different sizes and shapes but still have the same look.

Two Morrocan lanterns paired with a modern and clean white table. So chic.
