Inspiration Board: Watermelon Sunshine

Board #2 for today! To be honest with you, readers, this board was as much a surprise to me as anything. When reader Tanya mailed me to ask for an inspiration board for her vintage rustic wedding at Groenrivier, my first thought was that I’d probably done one like this before. Then, when I went to look back through my archive, I realised that when I’d put pink and yellow together before, it had been in a beachy way, but I’d never thought of pairing the two colours for a rustic board. Of course, once I did I realised they’re an absolutely perfect combo for a rustic summer wedding. Yellow is one of those colours that always makes people happy, and it reflects the sunny mood of a farm or other rustic setting. Pink adds in softness, and stops the yellow from being a bit overwhelming. The end result is glad of heart and full of romance. Isn’t it lovely? Well done for picking it, Tanya – I’ve definitely learnt something new myself! Hope you like the board, and good luck with the rest of your planning!
