Board No. 47: A Formal Affair

31 August 2009


{Click image to enlarge!}

This board is for Katharine, one of my lovely co-workers. She’s decided that I’m going to plan her wedding, and so every day I learn a little something new about her personal do’s and don’ts. It’s a hilarious back and forth, because while I embrace the “cute” and unexpected, Katharine’s buzzwords are “classic” and “traditional.” She wants white or ecru engraved stationery, white roses, an evening ceremony, and maids in black dresses. Based on this and the fact that she doesn’t like flowers (what?!), I’m always telling her she should have a winter wedding. Let’s consider this board part of that campaign.

    This inspiration board is awesome! Very, very beautiful. Thanks for sharing it. You also shared an inspiration board with me back in May when I was all inspired by lilacs {http://peach-pearl.blogspot.com/2009/05/board-no-31-lilacs-in-spring.html} and I was really humbled that you went on my little site. Thank you. You clearly have a gift.
