Board No. 32: Fiesta Afternoon

18 May 2009

{Click to enlarge!}

This board for a summer afternoon wedding was inspired by the J. Crew shoe array in the top left corner {side note: don’t they photograph their shoes so beautifully for the catalog?}, but the center-of-the-square fountain next to it really set the theme for me. I’m digging the slight Mexican flare, which I think is coming from the color combination of satsuma orange, pale peach, and sand, as well as the sandalwood fans, the long, fluttery ribbon flags, and the fluffy chrysanthemums floating in the fountain. Guests waving mini versions of these would make a cute and eco-conscious send-off at the end of the celebration.
