Inspiration Board: Spring Fern

Being from the Northwest, the fern holds a special place in my heart. When I saw the 'Leaf Specimen' wedding invitation by fellow Oregonian and invitation designer Krista Messer for Minted, I knew I loved it and that I simply had to put together an inspiration board around it. I love the watercolor airiness of the invitation, and the color palette jumped out at me - a range of greens, ambers and peach with a touch of a café au lait brown. The colors are so spring and fresh, and ferns make a lovely appearance not just the invitations but on tabletops, placesetttings, and the hand painted cookie favors, as well as subtly in the bouquet and on the cake. Touches of peach, amber, and café au lait on the tabletop runner, the bride's sash, on the cake, in the bouquet, and in the flower arrangements in amber glass bottles touches of color without going overboard, and keep the thread of a natural feeling running throughout the event.
