Board No. 37: One Morning in Maine

22 June 2009


{Click image to enlarge!}

There are so many reasons why I love this board.

First, it’s partially inspired by one of my favorite books from childhood.

Second, it’s utterly affordable. Have friends bake blueberry cheesecake, break out heirloom linens from the hutches of relatives for reception tables, pluck and dry hydrangea from a neighbor’s garden (or your own!) for a bouquet, and comb the beach for shells in the weeks prior to the wedding to scatter down the center of long tables.

Third, this wedding gets its unique “feel” from the fog rolling in off the ocean – the bride that chooses this board won’t have to do the weather dance in the weeks leading up to the ceremony!

Keep the palette muted and soft (cream + lichen green + dusty blue + navy + weathered gray) and you can’t go wrong.

    I love seeing a design that doesn't rely on perfectly sunny weather! Considering the spring/summer we've had in New England, this is entirely appropriate…and beautiful!
