Board No. 31: Lilacs in Spring

11 May 2009


{Click to enlarge!}

I know you’re probably getting sick of looking at all the green boards I’ve been posting lately, but I like to think this is spring working its magic on me – everything outside my window is in bloom, and I wanted to bring a little of that into Peach & Pearl.

This wedding is centered around one simple flower: lilacs. With their sweet, heady smell drifting through the air, you hardly need anything else to create a wonderful ambiance, but add in some silver, white, and gray accents to keep things sophisticated. And if you can celebrate at a Provence estate {top middle}, all the better!

Yes, I love making inspiration boards. And yes, I’d love to make you one. See more here.
