This classic combination shouts elegant, classy and timeless. It’s prefect for winter weddings and with a lighter red, a bright rich palette for the summer. I love the tented look below. When hot orange and neon green are faux pas, this color trio will be as popular as ever!!!
This past weekend I was in a Paris mood. I made a bunch of crepes.. and it’s really actually simple to make. Here is a recipe I like. You can top sweet crepes with lemon, butter and powder sugar, fruit and cream or my favorite Nutella! (If you haven’t had Nutella I must warn you it’s very addictive, it’s a hazelnut- chocolate spread:-) Here is more Paris inspiration!
Rustic country weddings are popular from old western barns, to wheat fields on the prairies, to vintage tractors as a backdrop. Country weddings are a perfect match to fall colors, weathered gold, cinnamon, deep red and yellow squash shades. You can play off the high low aspects of glamorous dresses paired with cowboy boots, crisp linens in a vintage barn, beautiful glassware with wildflowers. Enjoy some relaxed, rustic inspiration this Monday. We are getting over yet another winter cold here.. can’t wait til warmer weather!!!
So many styles come and go, but I continue to go back to the simplicity, timeless, vintage look of shabby chic. Here is some wedding inspiration.. to see more check out this photo shoot here on Ruffled blog. For home decor inspiration check out Imperfect or Pink and Polka Dot. Have a wonderful weekend!!!
For every event, big or small, recession or no recession, we all have floral budgets for our weddings. There are lots of ways to minimize cost without cutting some of your favorite elements of the day, one of which is flowers. You don’t have to have tall centerpieces, or even designs that are overflowing with beautiful blooms. If you need to cut floral costs, use several small bunches of the same repeating flower. Try arranging your own, or buying the flowers through a wholesaler like Costco. If you want a more wild and relaxed look, use collections of wildflowers and place them in recycled mason jars. Instead of cut flowers, use potted plants and flowers for your centerpieces. Don’t let cost limits stop your creativity!!!
Some of the sweetest things in life are free. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend!
