Spring has arrived, and here is a little Easter fabric inspiration to celebrate! I love the playfulness of this colorful raindrop print. Wouldn’t this be cute for a spring-themed event? Perhaps an adorable baby or bridal shower!

Fabric Inspiration : Modern Yellow and Gray Wedding

This is one of those days when what I do is a little extra fun. I just walked through the Los Angeles International Textile Show and am feeling so inspired. So many textures, colors, patterns… I really can’t wait to use some of these beautiful fabrics in some new custom invites!

One fabric trend I am loving is the wonderful ikat fabrics that are popping up in everything from fashion to home decor. I think ikat would also make for a truly stylish fabric wedding invitation.

This one could be perfect for a modern yellow and gray wedding:

Fabric Inspiration : A Succulent Wedding

Right now, I’m thinking a lot about fall weddings, and I’m loving all the creative uses of succulents in centerpieces, bouquets, and boutonnieres these days. What a beautiful, smart, and eco-friendly choice for fall when fresh blooms may be a little more difficult to come by! So for the next few fabric inspirations, I’ve pulled some great fabrics that I think would pair perfectly with a succulent wedding.

This first fabric features large, abstract florals that remind me of those round cabbage-y looking succulents (like the ones in the upper left of the collage, and I sure wish I knew what they were called!). The slate blues and sage greens mirror the range of succulent hues, which incidentally are just perfect with bright yellow accents!
