Picture Perfect Palette No. 2

Oh do I have a pretty palette for you today...
Picture-Perfect-Palette-2
Pretty, pretty, no?  Such a fabulous palette for a vintage rustic soiree.  It's clear that these colors make a perfect palette for this style.  

However, I would love to see this palette at a vintage beach wedding.  Here is just one way you could incorporate some of the palette's colors...
PPP-2-Vintage-Beach
Pretty vintage glass bottles - a couple that I would fill with a simple flower or greenery, and the rest I would leave as is - empty.  Vintage bottles are a wonderful detail to use at a beach wedding...it's as if they might have been just washed up onto the beach.  Hmmm, wonder if there was a message inside, don't you?  And speaking of that - I would roll up the menus (would love them on worn, vintage paper) or maybe a thank you note, tie them with twine and place at each setting...it would have to be done just right though so it didn't looking cliche.  Another detail that I would add would be soft, washed linens on the table, and maybe some vintage doilies.

And of course, this palette would be perfect for a classic, romantic, or an elegant garden wedding too.  This bouquet is a fabulous example of just how perfect it would be...
PPP-2-Flowers-and-Color
Flowers would be flowing out of their silver or gold vessels, the chandeliers would be hung (from trees, if outdoors), and lots of candles everywhere...is a good start, but I'll let your imaginations take it from there.

I would love to hear what you came up with!  So what do you think?  Is there a style that you like the best?

  10. Beautiful! I love this series, it's so inspiring. I think my favourite is the beach concept - those are unusual colours for a beach wedding but I think they'd be so gorgeous.
