{#131} paper cranes + china blue

{colors} china blue, lavender, white
{description} a few months ago my dear friend lydia asked if i would create an inspiration board for her friend shana who is getting married next fall.  lydia basically told me that the bride has been collecting antique china and especially loves blue and white china.   the bride is also a fan of purple and lydia suggested a softer shade of lavender would be better with the blue and white china pieces.  the couple wants to include asian elements in their wedding with charming paper cranes and cherry blossoms.  i cannot wait to see the final result of shana's wedding.

  15. You'd think the lavender would compete with the powder blue. But they make a lovely match! Can't wait to see the real wedding!
