I had so much fun working with Darcy Miller, Anthony Luscia and the team from Martha Stewart Weddings last Saturday at The Wedding Party, co-hosted by Martha Stewart Weddings and The Wedding Library in NYC. I worked with Jo and Melissa from my office to create a beautiful environment inspired by the Spring issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, including a fresh pink color palette. I can't wait for you to see the new issue (pick it up on Monday, March 1st)!
To create these favors, I placed three fragrant Spring blooms into a water tube, wrapped the tubes in tissue paper, and enclosed them in a cellophane bag. (The bag I used had a flat bottom so it could stand.) We then tied each bag with a lovely ribbon, and though we embellished them with our Matthew Robbins Design tag, you could easily personalize them with a custom monogrammed tag inscribed with your event date.
We also created a chic yet romantic centerpiece using pewter and gray ceramic vases with beautiful pink blooms. This palette is completely unexpected; the gray tones instantly bring the pink palette to a new level.
Here, we used luxurious gold vases with lush pink blooms.
Remember to consider a full range of tones when working with a monochromatic palette.
Here is a lovely favor box created by One Girl Cookies -- a great combination of pink and brown.
And here, guests look at the dresses by Ash & Robbins, featured in the Spring issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. The three dresses each represent a different pink hue, ranging from soft blush to vibrant fuchsia.
I know you will all enjoy the Spring issue! Are you considering pink or another monochromatic palette for your own wedding? Let me know if I can help with ideas or suggestions.
