Spring has officially sprung! We all know that with the season comes the Easter holiday festivities, which happen to arrive early this year. Sunday, March 31st to be exact.
So, what comes to your mind when you think of Easter and Spring time? The Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts, or beautiful spring dresses, patent leather shoes, or Easter bonnets? Well, when I think of the season, I think of the endless world of PASTELS!
Pastel colors are one of many wedding trends for 2013! So, if it’s one of your favorite color palettes, you can indulge the imagination with an endless variety of ways to incorporate it into your wedding day. For example, how about pastel vintage-style mason jars used as favors or table placements, or pastel chavari chairs for a wedding ceremony? Picture a beautiful pastel wedding cake and treats for your guests!
From mint green, to lavender and peach, to baby blue, and yellow or pink, you can have a very romantic wedding day with a soft mix of a few colors or all of them. How about adorning your bridal party in a rainbow of pastels? You may even want to consider incorporating a few subtle hints of Easter such as pastel jelly beans and/or foiled mini Easter bunnies to adorn your dessert table or pastel eggs to embellish the inside of your centerpieces. Wow!
Peter Cottontail doesn’t have to bring me a “basket of Easter joy” because I am bubbling over with it as I reflect on the wonderful ideas “hoppin” down the trail of my mind!
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter and Happy Planning!
Top of the Morning to You! I’m just a wee bit excited because I know that when St. Patrick’s Day arrives this means that the spring season is right around the corner! This annual holiday is a great transition into the warm weather months of the year, as the vibrant green colors of the festivities reminds us of what is to come. So, I dedicate this blog to the ‘Emerald Isle’ brides who may want a touch of ancestral influence in their wedding, and to the brides of which green happens to be their favorite color.
Although you can go all-out with a green and yellow theme, which would definitely showcase the influence of St. Patrick’s Day, why not incorporate the entire spectrum of the rainbow into your wedding? Trust me, and you might just find your ‘pot o’ gold.’
Imagine a beautiful green center-piece accented in yellow and/or gold, or a wedding cake decorated with a multitude of vibrant colors. How about the bride’s maids’ bouquets created with an assortment of flowers favored by the Irish such as daisies, sunflowers and colorful roses?
Let’s not forget the food. You may want to consider a family-style reception with Boxty, which is the Irish version of a potato pancake, or the infamous bacon and cabbage, and/or a delicious Irish stew. Yummy! Finally, a small replica of the Blarney Stone for your guests to kiss would offer them a playful welcome as they enter the reception.
I encourage you to take your time and peruse my inspiration board! I hope it ignites your creative side in designing a board that details the “shamrock” wedding of your dreams!
Wishing you all a very Happy Spring—and St. Patrick’s Day!
