artistic inspiration: provence

Today, we're taking a little trip across the pond and drawing inspiration from the Provence region in France. We think it would be delightful to see the colors, textures, and food from this region translated into a casual, rustic wedding. Start with an outdoor venue, mix in a vintage dress, add romantic flowers and bunches of lavender, sprinkle in rustic elements like vintage cafe chairs and milk bottles, toss in a fabulously rustic feast complete with figs, cheese, and crusty bread, and finish the whole thing off with gorgeous trays of macaroons. Um, to the bride who throws this fête? We'd like an invitation, thanks.

Draw a little color inspiration from Provence! Olive green, fig purple, lavender, sage green, and cream pull together the look and feel of the French countryside.
