#176: fabric ideas.

joann's fabrics

i'm showing you purple (imagine pairing this underlay of sorts with yellow ware like tinted vases with floating candles or a cupcake stand with yellow cakes or wine/vintage bottles with random yellow flowers) but black lace could also create a very mod vibe.

$5.59 sale price. and with a name like 'casa lace', it's all the more lovely. it's 58" wide. using very rough guesstimation, i'd need 36" squares per round table. so i'd purchase 10 yards. the extra fabric? i'd spiff up very simple invites, wrap favors, decorate menus, pretty up homemade BM bouquets.

Purple and Yellow? I will admit that was exactly my reaction about a year ago when a bride aproached me with this palette- and then she threw in coral as well... and I really tried to silence my designer critic--- but after much persistance and a lot of negotiating, the color stuck... and the event was AMAZING! We opted for a modern art museum and really "painted" this palette all over from linens to flowers to lighting-
