That's Amore

This inspiration board also comes in celebration of a non-traditional Valentine's Day. This one sort of came to me this week, actually. As I sat around with the classic song by Dean Martin in my head, I thought about how fun it would be as a theme! Naples, moon and stars, pizza, and lots of love!

This could really be adapted for just about any affair - a wedding, a romantic evening, or even a Valentine's gathering of friends, so long as it has plenty of vintage, Italian flair!

Platinum & Pink Valentine's

A good twist on a traditional holiday palette is always fun. Contemporary and sleek, platinum also pairs beautifully with bright colors, so why not adapt it for a romantic Valentine's affair? Plus, platinum brings to mind lots of bling! Chandeliers, metallic details, candles adorned with strands of crystals, and even sumptuous gray lace. Whether for a wedding, couple's bridal shower, or even a romantic evening, this color palette has both masculine and feminine elements that would make anyone fall in love.

Reader Request: Classic Peach & Champagne

Bridget requested some inspiration for a classic garden wedding in peach and champagne. What a gorgeous palette for a spring wedding! Here is the board I created to capture that idea.

I think that ivory pairs well with this color combination, and I just loved the four tier ivory cake embellished with peach roses. The wedding is to take place in a garden, so I imagined a delicate arch with flower bunches for the ceremony with rose petals and hurricane vases filled with floating candles lining the aisle.

For the reception, I imagined this lovely dinner setup of soft fabric, gold places settings, and... more peach roses! For their classic wedding, you really can't go wrong with roses. This would truly make for a warm, feminine, and timeless celebration.

And speaking of celebration, a Happy Groundhog's Day to all! I know I will celebrate this evening with one of my favorite movies. ;) Maybe you could celebrate by making some of these adorably creative cupcakes spotted on The Finer Things.
