Summer Soiree

by | Bride, Inspiration Boards


The gray days of winter have left me frozen so here’s a board to lighten up the days. A summer soiree, spread out underneath the trees on a balmy summer’s night. Guests dining from picnic baskets and dancing under paper lanterns.

    How fun! Can we come?
    This reminds me of a recent Backyard wedding we shared; fun colors, summer treats and a great outdoor theme.

    Well- we are in the middle of a heat wave, but these images bring to mind cool breezes and fruity drinks! Love these warm and happy colors for a wedding.

    We must be feeling the same things! I just posted a piece on a honey inspired event with warm sunflowers and honeypot favours. Much happiness, Ms Polka.
