You know those days, where you just see something and it’s just lovely? It’s bright and cheery, and just brings a smile to your face when you see it? Maybe it’s a bunch of fresh flowers. Or maybe it’s a decadent dessert in a bakery window. There’s something special other there for everyone, custom tailored to make that person’s day.
For me, something that brings a huge smile to my face is my inspiration boards. I always love making them, and I am especially fond of the ones that instill an extra sense of happiness when looking at them, even on an unconscious level. There’s just something about this week’s idea board that sparks that in me, and I hope it has that effect on you too.
This week, I wanted to create a bright, cheery board sure to brighten up your day, and hopefully your guest’s days too. This theme can be used for a wedding or gala, a fundraiser, milestone anniversary party, or toned down to be a baby shower or luncheon color theme.
The touches of polka dots really help add the fun to this black and white inspiration board with those accents in yellow. Here’s what I had in mind:
