event inspiration {lime+biscotti}

I know that most party hosts love throwing an unique event full of personal and unexpected elements--which can be quite the task. I think it also tends to make people ignore classic color combinations, such as lime green and creamy biscotti, but they can still create an amazing and fresh look when textures are carefully chosen and details are not ignored.

(via green wedding shoes, indigo bunting, a hana designs, once wed, elizabeth messina and sunday suppers)
After all there are a reason that these colors are classics!

I've never been a big fan of that color combination (too classic, maybe?), but I LOVE each of those pictures! Makes me totally reconsider lime and cream. Thanks!

Maria said...

Add some chocolate brown and you have my wedding colors! Great color combo!

Lavender and Lilies said...

I agree. I love it. Those colors are great inspiration for anything from a wedding to a living room. Hmmm I am getting ready to redo my living room.

This colour combination is so clean, fresh, and classic. I think it would be particularly perfect for a brunch, luncheon, or shower. That white tablescape is gorgeous.

Oh that bouquet is gorgeous! Which is especially unusual for me to think because I really don't care for calla lilies (I think they're totally overrated for the price). This color combo is classic and dreamy.

I like the colors. Because I see colors when I hear names or numbers I see with these colors the name Lynn.

Anne @ The City Sage said...

Thanks Anne! Yes, her style was just perfect--was actually where the whole board started.
