Petal Pink with Fresh Pastels

Today's theme has a garden party feel to it, although it could easily be done indoors, too. The colors are petal pink with fresh pastels, especially a soft sage green and lemonade yellow.

By now you probably know how much I love the addition of birds to wedding themes, and I found plenty of pretty-in-pink lovebird DIY ideas from Martha Stewart. Everything from favors "from the lovebirds", traditional style escort cards and bird shaped placecards that perch on the edge of your guests' glasses. I especially love the little bird nesting on top of a tiny favor box, like an individual centerpiece for each place setting!

The DIY bath fizzies are also a cute Martha favor idea, perfect for girls like Heather and me who are junkies for all things cosmetics related.

Some of my favorite pictures on this board are the non-traditional bouquets. I LOVE the pink snowberry bouquets from MS. They're so whimsical and lovely! I also love the button bouquet by Really Bad Kitty on Etsy. How cute would that be for a flower girl or junior bridesmaid? They could take it home as a keepsake, and you wouldn't have to worry about them crushing their fresh blooms while they're playing around.

And last, but not least... Dazzle Malted Milk Balls by Koppers Chocolate. Not only are they beautiful with this theme, but I thought it was a sweet favor idea for Heather as a kind of nod to our late Grandpa who LOVED malted milk balls.
