Palm Springs Summer

There is something about black and white stripes that always looks fresh to me no matter how many times I see it! When I saw this poolside photo, I fell in love! I can see it now: a warm summer Cali night with poolside wedding and late night treats from the gastrotruck. Enjoy!!

Over the Pond

…Kate and William are getting married Friday! While I’m not buying any souvenirs or waking up before the sun to watch it, I am still excited to see how they stray from tradition. Since their relationship has been a bit different than their predecessors (ok I had to watch the Dateline special to find that out ; ) I’m assuming their wedding will have the same feel though still paying respect to many traditions.

Today’s inspiration board has a touch of tradition with a navy base for the palette, then I punched it up a bit with strawberry pink and camel to add some soft, whimsical tones. Enjoy!!

Dreams Made of Sicles

Dreamsicles! Dreamy shades of peaches, oranges, pinks and golds. It’s a play on all those girly colors without being too literal. Enjoy!!

And violets are violet! We’re gearing up for Valentine’s Day. And this year, I’m loving a deep violet and rosy pink. It’s soft and subtly romantic. Enjoy!!

Grandma’s House

I met the sweetest mother of the groom last weekend. She is from England and came to Louisiana to visit and meet the families. I was so captivated by her accent. It made me think how much I’d love to visit England, in particular an old English grandmother. It’s crazy where inspiration comes from! But here it is… Enjoy!

Work has been crazy busy the last few months and unfortunately one of the first things that tends to get cut is inspiration boards. Oh how I’ve missed making them! This week, we will have a new inspiration board Monday-Friday.

Before I talk about today’s board, I did want to announce tomorrow’s bridal show at City Club at River Ranch. I’m really excited about this bridal show. I’ve done other big box shows in the past and they can be a bit chaotic: 300 brides, 100 booths, all in search a freebies or big discounts. This show is a bit different (still with freebies and discounts though : ). City Club selected a group of 30 or 40 vendors that they personally work with/recommend. Among them are many vendors I recommend to my own clients for flowers, cake, photography, rentals, tuxes, invitations : ). We’ve got a fun display that I’m excited about sharing. Come stop by our booth. We will have information on Event Packages, Invitations, Rental Items, Fete Connection and even our Southern Life items for the soon to be Mrs! Details below!

On to today’s board…

I was in the mood for something a bit sunny but out of the ordinary for me. I’m not a huge red person but love this tomato shade with this wheat color. It’s warm and inviting and super cheery! Enjoy!!
