cherry and lime.

I've come up with an inspiration board for our winner, Caitlin from Think Happy Thoughts. Here's how Caitlin described her wedding vision:

Its in October in Destin, Florida. The ceremony is on the beach, reception at a culinary center. Our colors are reds (cherry, apple) and greens (pistachio, lime, pale), khaki, ivory, white. If you look at my blog you can see some inspiration boards I've liked in the past but none suit me! I don't want to overdo starfish and sand dollars - so we'll stick w simple tea lights, ribbons, floating flowers, glass vases for decorations. My fiance loves star gazer lilies and I have to find a way to incorporate them wout having a bunch of pink. Ummmm, bridesmaids r in red, boys in linen khaki and prbly light green button ups. My dress is ivory and has a train, strapless, and ivy beaded detailing on the bodice. I love green ivy as a pattern. I don't know if I'm helping at all. I envision a simple, clean, but unique reception.

Here's the board.
I'm thinking it would be cool to have long banquet tables, alternating red tables and green tables, both with tablecloths made of linen. Only the flowers and napkins would give the pop of color on each table. Clean stripe designs on the favor packaging, invitation suite and cake would mimic the long stripes of the banquet tables. Even the stargazer lilies in Caitlin's bouquet are striped! Add in some circles with the cherries, tissue pomander arrangements and the escort cards, which are posted on a board covered in linen. A floral or damask pattern with clean lines could be used in some of the napkins and the escort card circles, along with a pretty laser cut curtain to complete the modern look. And there are no sand dollars to be found!

I hope this board makes your wedding vision a little clearer Caitlin! Enjoy!
