In preparation for my first trip to the U.S. in almost three years—and my first trip home in five—this has been a very busy month. It feels like we’re packing a summer’s worth of activities into the entire month of July!
And my mind is even busier than my self. I’m constantly thinking about this trip, making mental lists about what to buy, do, or see—whether it’s before our trip or during.
Also, the fact that we’re not returning with the same routine makes things more interesting. When we get back, my older son will start preschool immediately. (Poor kid, having to start school after five weeks of fun with his family, and with jet lag, no less!)
But I hope that, when we do return, I’ll be able to get back into a routine of designing and blogging, because my creative side is really taking a backseat right now and I miss it.
Alright, now that all that’s out of the way, here’s my July wedding inspiration board.
I was thinking about July weddings in the grass and wanted to incorporate a green accent color. When I saw the bridal bouquet wrapped in cobalt velvet ribbon (above), that was it! Cobalt blue as the main color, and apple and aqua as accents: the overall feeling is exciting, yet oddly calming. And don’t you just want to take the blue stemware home?
