#105: lovely lace
Happy Monday lovelies!! How was your weekend? I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon pretending I’m still hip in trendy Shoreditch, a leisurely brunch at my fave spot the Albion Café, followed by a wander through the market and a few impulse purchases for the house, and a very lazy Sunday. Perfection!
This week’s board is an indulgence in a few of your favourite things, romantic neutral, peachy tones and lots of lovely lace. I feature so many weddings with this combination of lovely things, and I love how you all put your own personal spin on it (to see just what I mean check out Janine & Ewald’s wedding featured last week & pop back on Wednesday for our real wedding treat!). My take adds a touch of rustic romance, pale coral and peachy flowers add a subtle touch of colour to an otherwise neutral palette – a lovely pairing with an early summer sunset wedding. Lace details ripple through the day, enveloping elegant invitations, beautifully detailing the brides dress, and edging a vintage-inspired veil, and spilling from a blousy bouquet of early summer peonies and garden roses. Sweet ribbon and lace wands, with bells attached, are a lovely accessory for your flower girls to announce your arrival before you walk down the aisle, and for your guests to celebrate as you exit as newly weds! Drape rustic wooden benches with lace tablecloths picked up from charity shops, or collected from family and friends and decorate simply with flower filled (and lace wrapped!) jars and bottles for a relaxed yet pretty look. For a final flourish, ask your cake designer to replicate the lace pattern on your wedding cake (see how it’s done with this tutorial). Lovely, lovely lace!
