How about these striking aqua on red floral background invites from Mountain Cow or this bird toile aqua/red note from Invitations Galore and More. Page Prints Stationery's saucy invitation or mix and match these invitations from Snow and Graham with red or aqua envelopes.
The Table's The Thing
The inspiration for this table setting is the beautiful sheet of wrapping paper, its edges were wrapped with cotton ribbon for a finished look. Around the napkins, strips of aqua paper with millinery birds perching on top (their feet are secured to the paper band with adhesive dots). And the centerpiece? Vibrant red carnations in a porcelain compote. I love the red branches, low glasses and lanterns for this wedding's decor. Being creative with everyday items is very cost-effective. To die for: red cloth napkins with screen-printed leafy design in light blue. Setting the tone with aqua and red programs.
What to Wear?
I'm just imagining myself wearing a white linen dress with this purse and these fabulous Naughty Monkey pumps.
Serve a Blue Bird cocktail or set up a candy buffet. Robyn Loves Cake's blue fondant cake with gum-paste cherry blossoms and gold luster-painted pastillage butterflies. Check out this stunning cupcake tower from Flickr user Zzilch.
Send Them Home With a Smile
These candy-bag envelopes are inexpensive and easy to customize; all you need is a oval craft punch and a rubber stamp with a frame design that matches the size of the opening. Insert a cellophane bag with jelly beans, and voila , perfect party favors. These lollipops are perfectly festive. Coordinating scrapbook or wrapping paper can turn an ordinary box into a thoughtful gift.
