Inspiration Board #7: Blue Christmas

10 December 2008


{Click to enlarge!}

So sorry for the scant posting, and for getting this board up a day later than promised! Exams have taken and will take precedence over blogging this week {as I suppose they should}. Anyway, this board has me singing a little Elvis: it’s elegant and sleek, but not too cool to make time for some playful portraits in the snow!

The Details
First row, left to right:
Jordan almonds look new packaged in fun netting (Martha Stewart Weddings); a cardigan is a smart (and smart looking!) way to stay warm at the ceremony or reception (photo by Ann Hamilton via The Bride’s Cafe); a coconut-dusted cake calls to mind snow falling outside (Rebecca Thuss)

Second row, left to right:
Silver dresses serve as moving decor {is is bad to think of them in that way?!} and add shine to the festivities (J. Crew); a twilight ceremony is a lovely and atmospheric way to begin the evening (photo by Jef Maion via Snippet & Ink); give guests a jingle bell to ring on your way back down the aisle or out the church doors (Martha Stewart Weddings)

Third row, left to right:
Icy blue letterpress delivers a crisp first impression (by Lilah Paper via Style Me Pretty); lilacs, usually associated with spring, make for a frothy, winter white bouquet (Martha Stewart Weddings); mini tart pans filled with cookies are delicious favors and add to a beautiful tablescape (Martha Stewart Weddings)

Fourth row, left to right:
A columned atrium makes for a grand reception location (The Knot); set aside ample time for playful portraits {and making snow angels!} (Anne Ruthman via Weddingbee PRO); a wedding dress with a silver sash picks up the hue of the maids’ dresses perfectly (photo by Jonathan Canlas)
