Inspiration: Red and White Delight

3 Nov

I know I’ve been bombarding you all with red, but this was a special request so last one for a while I promise! My friend asked me to do a board for her friend that is getting married in December in Salt Lake City, Utah. She knows she wants a white and red wedding and she’s in love with red calla lilies! I thought this red calla centerpiece with the dark red velvet box was gorgeous and perfect. Velvet to me is the luxe fabric of winter. I also love the image of a red cardinal on a snowy tree branch. How cute would little seating cards or table numbers be with an illustrated red cardinal worked into the design? I didn’t want this board to get Christmassy, but I couldn’t resist the peppermint hot chocolate to tie into the red and white. How great would a hot chocolate dessert bar be? Or little jars of hot chocolate mix and crushed peppermint as favors so guests could enjoy it at home on a chilly day! I also love fur for a winter wedding (faux of course). A little white fur jacket makes a great accessory for a bride or her pooch! This is a winter wonderland I would love to take a walk in!

    Thanks again for creating this stunning board for my friend. I absolutely *LOVE* it, and my friend Candy has been raving about it too. She’s so excited to turn these ideas into a dream-wedding reality. I adore the cute touches like the doggie in a fur coat (which the bride is excited to wear herself!) and the candy cane in the hot chocolate–refreshing amongst the typical “stuffiness” of a red and white wedding. It’s amazing how these boards have a snow-ball effect (haha.. how appropriate) on inspiration. Suddenly we have so many new and unique ideas; the possibilities seem endless now. You rock!
