Ultimate wedding & party destination since 2009

Guest Blogger: Snippet & Ink

April 5, 2010

Hello fellow 100 Layer Cake readers! Kathryn here from Snippet & Ink, I’m so excited to be guest blogging this week while Kristina is out enjoying time with her new baby boy.

I love playing with colors, seeing if I can make predictable color palettes new, or pairing colors that might not seem obvious together. Pink and green is still a favorite for weddings, and I imagine it always will be, but it can come across as saccharine and unsophisticated. Black tones down the sweetness, and makes it all look chic.

Palette: melon-mint green, pale grapefruit pink, black avocado
