{#128} paris & pistachio

{colors} pistachio, buttercup, ivory
{description} destination boards are back and it's not secret that i'm in love with paris or any other romantic european city for that matter. for this inspiration board, i wanted to focus in keeping the wedding casual and elegant at the same time. a light pistachio green is used throughout the board and the color is picked up on the earthy succulents and stationary as well in the desserts.
