With the beautiful colors, or the aromatic way plants and flowers freshen the air, here are ideas to make your summer garden beautiful.

Whether you are the bride and groom or you are a guest, this is the best time for a wedding. I’ve always loved the details and fanfare that surrounds weddings and I thought I’d share some wedding inspiration ideas with you.

From the bride’s beautiful shoes down to the party favors, creating a summer wedding is ideal with simple colors and attention to detail. Create a focal point on the reception table with multiple cakes in coordinating color and decoration. Display place cards in a vintage suitcase with baby’s breath flowers for a welcomed surprise for guests to find their seats.

Have you ever been to a summer outdoor wedding reception that you didn’t absolutely love? When done right, outdoors weddings are a treat for the happy couple and the attendees. Let nature create a beautiful backdrop and carry the details onto the reception tables with natural decor.
