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?

For the love of Pink, Orange & Yellow – Part II

Yes, we ain’t done with summer colors…here’s more coverage from our pink, orange & yellow wedding.

See the white lantern in the bride & groom’s table? Such a good find from the flea market! Just add a little white paint for a more polished look.

For the love of Pink, Yellow & Orange

Today’s post is just in time for spring! It’s a bit overdue but it’s still deliciously colorful!

Remember this pink, yellow & orange tablescape we were going to use for a wedding? Here’s how the whole DIY reception setup turned out.

Those who know me knows that I love the simplicity & elegance of paper pompoms…plus it’s budget friendly! Mini paper pompoms for napkin rings & large paper pompoms as centerpieces…lovely!

The pompom vases are actually recycled jars & bottles. We wrapped the jars with cream paper board as base then with gold mesh wrapping paper (found from Divisoria – good find!).

Just to add to the color scheme, this candy bar was a sweet welcome as the guests arrived.

Seriously. Who doesn’t love DIY.
