Inspiration Board No. 94: Mulberries in Hawaii

9 January 2012

I do not know if they have mulberries in Hawaii. I do know that I found the cover of the most recent Martha Stewart Weddings very inspiring, and decided to craft an inspiration board around its perfect bright mulberry hue. I imagined this wedding in Hawaii, since who doesn’t need a little aloha inspiration in January?

The Details:

Second row: cocktail tables photo by Apertura via Style Me Pretty; island trio photo by Corbin Gurkin via Style Me Pretty; from Sky Series by Eric Cahan

Did you know that the rich color of mulberries was supposedly, once upon a time, white? According to Ovid’s myth “Pyramus and Thisbe” (whence Shakespeare got the idea for Romeo and Juliet), the berries were changed from white to red as a symbol of their love in their deaths…

Kind of morbid, but, as a Latin teacher, I really love the story and it is actually sweet. Just thought you’d like to know that they have a deeper meaning of love and eternity behind them…
