Lavender is one of those colors that can take on so many different looks when paired with different accent colors. This fall, I am loving it paired with grey! The combination becomes sophisticated, sweet and I love the touch of shimmer! Perfect inspiration for a bridal shower, birthday party or even a wedding!

Let your shower guests know you feel fortunate to have them at the party with these charming pink and red fortune cookies filled with treats or special messages. Make an extra-special bunch for the bride-to-be and ask guests to write special fortunes for her.
Felt Fortune Cookie How-To
1. Using fabric shears, cut a 4 1/2-inch-diameter circle from a piece of felt. Cut a piece of matching ribbon slightly shorter than 4 1/2 inches. Using wire cutters, cut a piece of floral wire slightly shorter than the length of ribbon.
I always dreamed of having a white wedding….there is just something so elegant and romantic about it! I think of white as a very “classic” color. You can give it a modern edge by using some un-traditional items in your centerpieces and decorations. I love the look of the white twigs in the centerpieces pictured above…..a touch of natural beauty, but placed with large, white blooms it creates a perfect balance of elegant and traditional, with a touch of modern appeal. Decorations don’t have to be complicated or elaborate! Have a room full of plain doors?! Hang a wreath of white flowers on each door….not only with the repetition be stunning, but it’s a simple way to elevate the space.
There’s nothing like a sophisticated black & white wedding. You can add a touch of whimsy to this classic palette by popping it with chartruese green. I love the three dimensional aspects to all of these images – the ruffle on the wedding gown, the frosted petals on the cake – they add a perfect amount of drama!
