inspiration board #46: toile de joie
Good morning lovely ladies!
Happy Monday to you all! With February almost here (eeek!) I am sure those of you getting married this year are getting your plans well under way? I’m guessing that right about now all those little details are beginning to come together, and you’re having fun playing around with your wedding day theme? Those final touches and styling details are the things I love best (after the love, of course!) and I’d love to hear about your projects! If you need any ideas, advice or help sourcing props and suppliers, you know where I am, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with your questions right here!
Today’s inspiration is all about laid back rustic, with an elegant French twist! The pretty patterns of toile on fabrics and even china add a touch of vintage charm to an outdoor farm wedding. Eclectic is the order of the day, so don’t worry if it doesn’t all match perfectly, just add a few solid punches of colour here and there. Wouldn’t blue shoes be the perfect idea for your something blue?! Or a pretty china blue cameo brooch is also a lovely idea, especially if you have one with sentimental value. I love these little hanging mason jars, a beautiful little rustic touch with the ribbon adding a lovely touch of colour, and tea-lights giving a romantic glow as the sun sets and the stars come out! Burlap (that’s hessian to us English folks), rustic timbers and kraft paper are the perfect textures for wedding stationery and papergoods to add a relaxed and informal feel. I love the chicken wire table plan, an easy and affordable DIY (just cover an old frame in fabric and staple in the wire) and using mini pegs keeps it super flexible too – so no need to worry about those last minute changes to the guest list! I adore the iced biscuit favours with the hen motif – what a perfect way to brand a farm wedding!
Are you planning rustic outdoor or farm wedding? What do you think of this pretty blue theme?
