Understated Elegance: The Details
In this month’s Understated Elegant style guide we loved playing with ideas to make a very minimal palette look amazing! I mean, just look at that stunning bouquet!! Isn’t Liz from Bluesky Flowers a total floral genius? The textures and colours show that even an ‘all white’ colour scheme can look incredible with the right touches! She combined luscious Ivory Duchess de Nemours peonies with Antirrhinum, Dahlia, Astrantia with delicate Astilbe and Queen Anne’s’ Lace. Brunia, Senecio and Eucalyptus foliage in varying shades of silvery greens cascade effortlessly, while a bold black & white striped ribbon adds a modern twist.
Itty Bitty & Bijou created a simple & elegant stationery suite with mix of contemporary and classic fonts. Tied with a grey grosgrain ribbon, this sweet suite is the perfect announcement for a sophisticated and understated celebration. You could add some more black & white striped ribbon for a more modern look. Pop back this afternoon to download the DIY version!
With touches of lace, polka dots and the most delicate floral topper, Karen from Karenanna Cakes made this exquisite design to tie in with details from throughout the guide – the lace wedding dress, polka dot bridesmaids frock and bouquet. I adore the coloured tiers – such a simple & effective way to add some interest to your cake. The sweet cake pops are a fun addition too – perfect treats for little hands!
