Spring 2014 Wedding Trends

This spring there is a lot of choice in different wedding lines.
Zazzle send out a list of topics they have identified as trendy.
Today I will showcase some of the prettiest wedding invitations you can find on Zazzle, and then the ones that ARE trendy, but haven't (yet) reached the lime light. So the little gems that will make your wedding day a treasured and special day. After all: you want your day to be unique for you!

Radiant Orchid

Personally, although the terminology "radiant orchid" is from Pantone, I think it is a highly confusing word. Maybe it is me having English as a second language, but I think about orchid flowers when you say orchid. So purple or mauve might be better, as lilac and lavender run into the same problems ... Or maybe this is a subtle hint that flowers may be "the next big thing"?

Aqua, teal and minty green

Teal is a very interesting color in my view. Maybe because it is a combination of two colors, green and blue, that give birth to new. It has a the vibes of "new" and "innovative". Having said that, you may want to be careful when you choose this color. It is not easy to match and different shades of green or blue can easily become a challenge. Take into account what colors the wedding venue of your choice has and make sure there is no mismatch between wedding dress, flowers or elements of your wedding line. Once you get the "green light" there, you can fully indulge in these fresh colors!

Pink and peaches

Associated with "sweet", these colors are a natural match for anything romantic. Timeless I would say, and of course: nourishing the soul!

Special Feature: Plaids by Susan Wallace - Plaidwerx

A special feature today of US artist Susan Wallace. You may have seen her fractal art before, but today I have made a selection of her new plaid design collection. Some of them have original vintage art applied to them. Plaid, or tartan is originally a traditional pattern worn in Scotland, but has become highly popular everywhere. With new color combinations and personal touches, as well as the trendsetting 2014 spring designs, Susan's plaids are refreshing and a must-have for any household.

Top 10 Twin Baby Shower Invitations

Two babies on their way: double the joy!
Today I selected some baby shower invitations with a twin theme, or customizable for twins.
As children and babies tend to bring out our own creativity, it is interesting to see how that creativity reflects in the design of the baby shower invitations. And not only the creativity, it also brings out that feeling of wanting to cherish, which we also feel as we look at the babies of animals ... And you know what, it never really goes away!
