When planning a wedding or any event, it's helpful to peruse websites and blogs that detail theme and color ideas. Style Me Pretty has been one such resource for me. Abby posts beautiful real-life weddings and inspiration boards. The photo above is the beverage station at an outdoor wedding in California. I love the idea of introducing your guests to your favorite drinks - especially the ever so yummy Cricket Cola!

Last week, Abby asked her readers to submit color palette boards that are inspired by a photo. My contribution was based on this kitchen photo from the May 2005 issue of Domino magazine.

The bright colors & modern kitchen accessories inspired me to create a vivid and playful board - ideal for a middle-of-the-summer wedding or party. (click the image to enlarge)

Here are the sources of the board images, which are great resources as well:

1) Greeting Card from Apiary Design
2) Cake by Cheryl Kleinman via Brides
3) Placecards by Rebecca Thuss
4) Watters Bridesmaid Dress
5) Napkin Design by Maria McBride
6) Flowers by Rosenow Floral Design
7) Michelle Roth "Maya" Gown
