Inspiration Board: Love in Bloom

With Valentine's Day right around the corner and lots of spring and summer wedding showers on the way, it's safe to say that love is in the air!  With that thought in mind, here's a new "Love in Bloom" inspiration board featuring one of my favorite "romantic" color palettes – pink & gray – and inspired by the oh-so-lovely Plum Blossom paper partyware collection.



Scarlet Fever Florals
Ruby, burgundy and blush tones make for a seriously stunning floral combination!  Featured here: red roses, majestic red calla lilies, pink peonies, and speckled vandal & cymbidium orchids

Plum Blossom Silver 10" Plates
Who knew paper plates could be so pretty?! Wide shimmery silver rim accented by a lovely pink & plum cherry blossom motif. (coordinating napkins, guest towels, and 7" plates also available)

Classic Plastic Pink Utensils

Pink Cane Print Beverage Napkins

Silver Fortune Cookie Place Card Holders

Light Pink Paper Fans
Use these as accents for place settings, or as thoughtful "greeting" gifts for guests at a sunny outdoor party.

Silver Kitsch Baroque Photo Frame
This pretty frame is perfect for displaying a welcome message, signature drink menu, or favorite photo of the guest(s) of honor!

Square Decorative Glass Bottle (other shapes/sizes available too) – These pretty vintage glass bottles are less than $2 each! Use them as bud vases for pink and white flowers or wire-stemmed butterflies. They'd look fabulous both displayed in a group or placed individually at each table place setting. For added flair, tint the water pink!

Lovely Lilies Bridal Shower Invitation in Medium Pink – featuring a lovely bouquet of illustrated blooms + sweet and stylish lily pads. (These Cherry Showers invitations would be a great option for this theme too.)

Artificial Pink Cherry Blossoms – Whether they're fresh or faux, cherry blossoms make for gorgeous party decor! Feature them individually in glass cylinder vases (similar to this) or bundle several branches into a large "spray-style" arrangement.


Bottled pink drinks {via} look especially pretty when dressed up with custom labels or decorative paper that matches the theme.

Pink Haze – This pink-a-licious frozen cranberry martini features vanilla vodka, cranberry juice, heavy cream, and grenadine. The "smoky" affect was created with dry-ice pellets that instantly dissolve. More info here.

Paradise Found – Tropical punch looks extra tempting when garnished with plumeria and served in stemless wine glasses!


More pretty details: Strawberry and Black Currant Macarons, a pink-a-licious candy buffet displayed in old-fashioned candy containers with silver tops, and for party favors: frosted pink takeout boxes embellished with ribbon and custom labels. (Tip: You can find frosted pink takeout favor boxes at the knot wedding shop.)
