Wedding Colors: Marigold and Pewter
This bouquet seems as if it has arrived fresh from a country garden, yet it has an air of sophistication. Bright yellow ranunculus, gold roses, perfumed freesia, ilex berries, and clementines form the warm foundation, while dusty-miller leaves, blue-gray succulents, and leucadendron buds add contrast and texture. Stems are wrapped in wide golden tapestry ribbon plus satin ribbons in pewter and gold.
Flower Girl Attire
There's more to flower girl attire than plain white or sugary pink. In fact, dressmaker Roxbury Baby will fashion a frock out of any fabric you send them, as with this yellow-and-white silk-voile dress. Just as unusual: the silver-pewter shoes, which are an elegant but still age-appropriate touch. The silver ribbon headband, embellished with yellow leucadendron buds and ilex berries, is in keeping with the palette and complements the pint-sized posy of ranunculus, roses, clementines, and dusty-miller leaves.
Marigold and Pewter Table Setting
Add hints of clean white to the mix for such things as china, tablecloths, and stationery, and you've got it made in the shade -- and in the sunlight.
