Summer Color Scheme: Yellow + Brown

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 05, 2013

This week on the blog, we’re continuing with our favorite summer color schemes. First up — yellow and brown! This inspiration board is fit for a rustic bride seeking a barn or ranch wedding. {Cue the horses.} Choose a bridal bouquet filled with daisies and sunflowers and a boutonniere filled with billy balls for your groom’s lapel.

No cocktail hour is complete without a freshly squeezed lemonade served in mason jars, which can double as favors, perhaps? Or maybe “Make Your Own Butter” kits set at each place setting to complement guests’ own down home cooking recipes.
