how do you feel about yellow?

yikes! sometimes it makes me cringe. 

and others it is quite perfect...

One of me besties, Millette, has us wearing canary yellow as bridesmaids this June and I think they are pretty fabulous. 

Anyway, a bunch of family friends are putting together a wedding party in Fairhope for a dear friend's daughter. This dear friend LOVES yellow. I mean lurrves
My mom was asked to do the table arrangements for the party and we are to be using no other than yellow for this "Boots by the Bay" shindig.
I have been looking at different shades and tablescapes.

Love all of the shades and textures in this one by using different types of flowers. The white adds a clean and fresh feel. We thought we would use white tablecloths over burlap. (my mom's favorite)

I thought lemons would be so fun mixed in and be perfect with the rustic/cowboy boots theme! Maybe for the place cards?? 

We are going to be outside, but I loved these color combos. The bright daffodils and use of green are so fun. Maybe we could add in some limes with the lemons.

These table mats are kinda burlapy. I love it!

Of course we will have to have sunflowers somewhere in the mix...

All of this mellow yellowing has got my head spinning and me looking through my closet and home thinking I need to brighten up!!

What do you think?? Comments and suggestion would be wonderful! 

xo always,

  2. In design school we learned that although most of us would like to paint a nursery yellow...it's the color that makes babies cry! Oh well...It makes me smile!!! It's the color that makes me happy and it's the color of my favorite wallpaper in one of our powder baths!!! Love it and love to wear it!! In fact...if I'm daring...I could wear that shade of lipstick this friday night? What do you think?
