Color-Blocked

Color blocking is all the rage now in the fashion runway and it looks like it’s here to still early 2013. I’ve recently tried it on my wardrobe so I thought I might share this trend with all you brides-to-be(s) too!

First and foremost, definition:

Color blocking is a technique where blocks of various fabrics are sewn together to create clothing with a few different solid colors..

I’ve read somewhere that color blocking is not for the faint of heart. So if you think having a color blocked wedding dress is too much, you can always channel this colorful trend with your bridesmaids dresses.

The key colors this year is fuschia & tangerine, black on yellow, blue (which is now the winter color here in Australia) or neon colors.

I’m so in love with the canopy ceiling. Love the colors!  For favors, I found these adorable DIY terra cotta pots.

Who can forget the cake!

So, will you be color-blocking your wedding too? If yes, which color will you be mixing together?

Color+Mood #13: It’s Hearts Day

I’m going to wish everyone a belated Valentines Day with this entry. Hearts can be overrated sometimes but it still symbolizes everything there is about love. So with this in hand, I bring you my interpretation of a red, pink & tangerine hearts-inspired color board.

Woodsy & Poppy Red

It’s going to be another long weekend! Before I bid you lovelies a happy weekend, i’ll share with you two gorgeously designed tablescapes. Seeing this was so coincidental since we had just arranged our own tablescape recently.

Our first table is a bright red + white table collaborated by photographer Sara Gray & design team Punch.

Next is a green + blue + brown table by Jackie of Merci New York. Adorned with birdcages, popcorns, chocolates & guests’ souvenirs as a custom gift and dessert table. I love the rustic meets feminine feel! This design was also included in one of Jackie’s inspiration for a Manhattan loft style wedding.

Happy Weekend everyone!

Color+Mood #3: Burgundy Red

There are so many hues of red. And although all of them are great, I find burgundy red specifically classic. With the right blend of black & purple, you can create a wedding style that’s modern & elegant at the same time.

Tip: Strawberries & roses are the best way to add red to your reception. You can create your own centerpiece by filling vases with a mix of red & pink rose petals and strawberries. Add some white candles on the side & voila!
