Sun in the Sky – A Bright Blue and Yellow Summer Wedding

Don’t you just love it when inspiration comes to you when you least expect it?

I was on Pinterest the other night, pinning away fantastic ideas for future events, and came by a great board that was full of gorgeous food that was plated absolutely picture perfect.

A particular dish caught my eye – one with blues, yellow and a hint of brown.

I thought it would be such an interesting take on “wedding colors” to have food that matched your palette. So without further ado, here is what I had in mind:

Summertime Party: Blueberry and Peach Baby Shower

Summertime! It’s what inspired this week’s inspiration board. I was browsing Pinterest, and came by this incredible looking summertime peach and blueberry pie. It looked DEVINE!

Those are normally some of my favorite summer fruits, but it had never really occurred to me to mix the flavors, which got me thinking about the color combination of dark blue and peach….. Before you knew it, I decided that was going to be my theme for this week’s board. (I’ve also included it in the idea board below!)

These would be such fabulous colors to use at a summertime bridal or baby shower. Plus, you can do double duty on buying the produce fresh for eating, but also incorporate it into your décor. Here’s what I had in mind:

Up Themed Rainbow Wedding Ideas

99.9% of the time, I am not a fan of rainbow anything. No rainbow ice cream, no rainbow ribbons, shirts…. Anything except of course a nice rainbow after a storm.

What’s the .01% rainbow-ness I like? Anything “Up” related. If you missed it, (and seriously, if you have, stop reading this and go watch this movie. Right now.) Up is a Pixar movie that was released a few years ago. Yes it’s animated, and yea I know, cartoons are for kids, but this movie is worth the exception. It is by far one of my most favorite movies of all time.

I’ve had the inkling lately to go watch it again, and I’m waiting for that perfect lazy summer afternoon on the weekend to take advantage of it and watch it again. But it’s been on my mind a lot lately, and it got me thinking: how fun would this be as a summer wedding theme? It’s bright, colorful, and absolutely PERFECT for the couple that wants an outdoor wedding.

Bonus points: there are lots of DIY or cost effective options out there for this theme.

Here’s what I’m thinking:

Summer Wedding Ideas in Turquoise and Silver

When I saw this great art print by IkeStudio on Etsy, I knew it would be such a cute print to have framed and put on a wedding table, maybe near the desserts, or even near the cocktail station! It said, “Today is a perfect day to be happy”. What better quote for a wedding day is there than that?

I loved it so much I decided to use it as the main inspiration for this week’s inspiration and idea board. I’m channeling a beach or destination wedding, with bright blues and a hint of sparkle.
