Board No. 20: Rainbow Sherbet

{Click image to enlarge!}

A new season has just begun (at least in my book!), so what better way to kick it off and celebrate the first day of inspiration board week than with a spring fling wedding board! Delicate candy-colored hues, rainbow cupcakes, and vintage prom dresses - oh my! I picture a simple ceremony at a little white church, then a reception with lawn games and an ice cream truck at a state park in May.

The Details
First row, left to right:
Check vintage stores or the closet of your childhood home for candy-hued prom dresses. If you involve your maids in the hunt, they might not even resent your choice! {photo by Flint Photography via Snippet & Ink}. Love these pink d'orsays with a curl on the toe {photo by Meg Smith}. There's no need to dress up your favors if you're giving Laduree macarons {via Lobster and Swan}.

Second row:
Cupcakes frosted in a gentle gradation of hues make for a lovely dessert display {photo by Charlotte Jenks Lewis via Brooklyn Bride}. With a bright pink satin sash, even the bride gets color wonderful {photo by Meg Smith}. Make crepe paper blooms for guests to pick up before the ceremony and wear throughout the event {via Snippet & Ink}.

Third row:
This color palette begs for a candy buffet at the end of the night {Amy Atlas}. The best part about this color scheme? Most blooms will fit! {photo by Meg Smith}. Even succulents get in on the action - a display of these delicately tinged-beauties would look lovely on a card table or at the bar {via Once Wed}.

Fourth row:
If you want something to cut, choose a simple buttercream cake sprinkled with rose petals in every hue {photo by Meg Smith - what can I say, she's amazing!}. Swizzle sticks grouped together would make a delicious centerpiece at a kids' table {Martha Stewart Weddings}. The unassuming carnation just seems to fit this event's aesthetic - mass them to make centerpieces pop {Ariella Chezar}
