Spectacular Stripes

If you are a Zinke Design Facebook fan you know we found this gorgeous invitation on Pinterest this morning to blog about. (If you don’t know what Pinterest is, then you need to request an invite to join the site ASAP, it’s fabulous!)  With a black and white stripe liner, and shades of red, pink and green we fell in love, and set out to create wedding inspiration from this invitation suite. We suggest tying the stripe into everything from the bouquet to favors, cocktails, the grooms bow tie and even linens. Gold is in and we love this fabulous flatware, salt and pepper serving pieces and vases for the centerpieces. The gold ribbons on the cocktail straws will add another touch of gold to the event. Lush peonies are perfect for floral arrangements and the brides bouquet, and adding fun berries and textures to the grooms boutonniere adds an additional pop of texture. Don’t forget the cake, and why not add stripes to it as well. There’s not one thing that wasn’t touched by black and white stripes, and we love it! What do you think?

Icing on Top

Once again, I am addicted to PINTEREST. I love finding gorgeous images and piecing them together in a never ending puzzle. Today it’s gloomy in Tulsa so I began with this fun image by the ocean. The wind blowing this pretty peach dress, perfect ocean blue-ish color and overcast sky set the color palate for today. I loved themed weddings, and how perfect is this carnival picture. Pale pink and teal shades are perfect for gorgeous florals and how amazing is this cake; it’s just the icing on top of this inspiration board.

Plum Perfect

This morning I was on PINTEREST looking for my daily inspiration when I came across this awesome picture. The shades of mustard, plum and chocolate were the perfect color combination for today. If I were to do an event with this combination I would begin with these adorable invitations and choose bridesmaid dresses in mustard yellow. If you would like to use these colors for a spring wedding add in white to soften the colors. For the reception it’s all abut making a statement; keep the decor to a minimum and add pops of color in the food. In addition to your cake don’t forget these adorable macaroons! This inspiration board is plum perfect to me, what do you think?

Sucker for Seersucker

When I saw these adorable JUDITH MARCH seersucker dresses on PINTEREST last night (yes I pinned one on my wish list board) I just knew they would be the center of today’s blog post. How perfect would these be for bridesmaid dresses; in green, red and orange any combination would be swooon worthy! To set the tone for the entire wedding send out seersucker invitations like these from OH SO BEAUTIFUL PAPER. Pick a fun, but intimate, venue like a barn or even the beach and decorate with simple white blooms! Let’s not forget the handsome men in the wedding party; seersucker bow ties I think yes! Who’s ready for summer and seersucker? I know I am!

It’s Friday!

Yesterday’s post got me stuck on pink, and then some revolutionary tweeps of mine began to tweet #TGIT! It was at that point I began fantasizing about my “three day weekend” and what I would do if it were really true. Thank you Kim of The TomKat Studio for pinning this adorable salon shot by Francoise Rachez on Pinterest! If this adorable little place were close I would grab my fabulous Loui’s, jump on my moped and spend a fabulous weekend with my girl friends (remember I’m still dreaming). However, because this adorable, picture perfect place is not close I would just grab my suitcase and pack for a jet-setting weekend. When I arrive I will set the table with adorable glasses, add a few balloons and wa-lah! It’s the perfect pretend three day weekend! What are you doing with your days off? 😉
