event inspiration {simple + subdued}

Many people don't know where to start when creating a theme or palette for an event and my advice to them would be to start simple or choose one element you love--from there everything will begin to unfold. In this case, I was inspired by the muted tones of a loose floral arrangement by Saipua. I then pulled the warm and cool tones (that seems to be a theme this week) from the flowers into the other elements.

(invitation via green wedding shoes, heart pie via sweet and saucy, favor bags via 100 layer cake, napkins via elizabeth messina and dress via j. mendel)

The feathers and nude dress are so pretty. Thanks for the inspiration ideas. For some reason I can put together looks for clothing and art work but I can't do interior decorating to save my life. Maybe I need a mood board.

Thanks again!
