Inspiration: Cobalt and Orange

25 Apr

Well, things have been brilliantly busy around the Paperwhites offices!  Mastering our new (amazing and awesome!) printer, getting things together for some wonderful brides, thinking ahead to what comes next…the usual whirlwind that we wouldn’t trade for anything!  We’ve got some real life brides coming up that we’ll be featuring.  And we got a lovely shout out on Style Me Pretty for a wedding in New Zealand that we did paper for (loving how our Dahlia invite works here!).  So many great things!

And we’ve been thinking about weddings to come.  This color combo came to mind when thinking about September in that stretch of Indian Summer.  It’s that time when the world is giving us just a bit more sun and warmth to go with the final bursts of color from flowers.  It’s that time when the sky is an impossible shade of blue and the leaves are starting to think about changing color.  Clearly not Autumn, but almost.  That’s the perfect time to put together those same colors in your wedding.

Cobalt blue looks great on almost everyone, whether on a bridesmaid’s dress or as a touch in a groomsman’s pocket.  The vibrant orange in the flowers is picked up in the other accessories–the tie, the necklace, those fantastic shoes.  The rich blue glassware always looks amazing on a white tablecloth, but when you add in the tangerine elements in the flowers, you get a look that is unexpected and pretty and in keeping with the time of year.

Can’t you just picture it? Maybe with our Ava Invitation with Cobalt ink?  Check out the sources for these great ideas, as well as some other great Cobalt Blue and Orange ideas on our Pinterest Board!
