{#152} dining on the docks

{destination} maryland
{colors} orange, pale blue, gray
{description} Eek! I just realized that my last destination board was back in March ::tisk tisk:: sorry friends I'll make it up to you in June. I'm happy to share today's board with you because it came from a P&P reader, Jennifer . She asked if I could put together a board for her summer wedding in her hometown of Ocean City, MD.  She's planning my favorite, a casual outdoor wedding filled with family and friends. She said that crab was a must on the menu, so it would only be appropriate to offer the guests old bay season in cute mini mason jars as wedding favors. She initially wasn't sold on the orange when I told her but after her last email I managed to convince her.

  6. I love this, this inspired me to create a stationery set with a simple crab illustration on the "kraft" type paper, and poppy orange colored envelopes lined with maps!

  8. Every time I see the color orange, I wish I could wear it...it just always looks like such a festive color. And that dress, I just love it. The ruffle accent on one side paired with the gold detailing on the other is perfection.
