Pretty Green

Green is quickly becoming one of my favorite colors. I love the freshness it brings to mind and all of the other color combos you can create with it.

Target has a boxed set of invites as shown below that would be great for any number of weddings. They would work well for a garden or vintage theme. They would also be really neat as non traditional birthday party or cookout invitations. In person they are just as nice. They cream paper is reasonably thick and the dandelions imprinted upon it are sort of embossed into it so they have a letterpress feel to them.

I love these touches of green and white nestled amongst these branches. This would also make a really easy DIY project. You could gather your own tree branches, spray paint them your preferred color, and add tissue paper (or real, of course) flowers, and then cluster them in a large vase or container.

This is another super easy green idea. You could use this as a wedding centerpiece, cookout or party centerpiece, or as part of your regular dining room tablescape. I love this idea for a wedding. You could add a little sign or notecard at the bottom of the table encouraging guests to take an apple.

These limes make cheap, creative place cards as seen at real simple. Easy!!

I am kind of in love with these green shoes. There is just something so effortless and organic about them that just calls out to me. I can't explain it. But I can definitely think of more than a couple of my outfits that would benefit from a such a cheerful pop of color.

Purple is my favorite color. Look how well it matches up with fresh, crisp green. The lime accents bring the darker, more formal purples back into spring while looking fresh and modern rather than Easter eggish.


Okay really, is there ANYTHING more fun and green than a flirty margarita with fresh squeezed lime??
