all in the details [whimsy of yellow]

I have decided to start a new weekly series called "all in the details". My hope is to document a motif, a color a pattern, a style--well, anything really. All in the hopes that it will spur ideas for a room, a table setting, a dish or for a wardrobe. Plus my new favorite thing to do has been creating inspiration boards! So, I thought I would start simple by focusing on yellow, specifically its very whimsical quality:

custards with bumblebee cookies via sang an, tiered floral centerpiece via martha stewart, ruffle gown via carolina herrera, mantel via house beautiful, shoe photo via jose villa, stationary via pancakes and franks, flower pin via linda and harriet, bouquet via blonde tulip, lemon place card via snippet & ink, rannuculas via tria giovan

I am especially fond of the little bumblebee cookies! Also, I would love any ideas you have for upcoming installations in this series!

I have been in love with the whimsical colors of yellow lately, too. And am actually about to purchase a fun skirt from J Crew in a fun yellow color! Thanks for the inspiration!

Yay, I'm so excited that you're beginning a new series on your blog-and even more than you started it off with my favorite color. Yellow is so cheerful and refreshing! Can't wait to see what you do next, possibly aqua?

Oh these are all so pretty. I love the table number card with the ribbon, so cute. And I ADORE those custards (they kind of look like fried eggs, hehehe).

Oh my goodness Blair, you are so good at this, I love inspiration boards. Pip and I did a couple to enter in a competition Coco and Kelley did last year. They take FOREVER, and that is even before you credit back everyone - they are incredibly time consuming so thank you for making the time, we are all very spoilt! xx
