event inspiration [april showers bring may flowers]

It has been a while since I have had the time to put together an inspiration board and I thought it would be fun to try and translate the idea of "april showers, bring may flowers" (which I told myself everyday in April) into a color palette for an event. And the result is a soft palette of cool blues, soothing grays and the palest of pinks. I think is just perfect for a spring or early summer affair.
