A strapless wedding dress with a cropped jacket by Jim Hjelm is accented by a v-necked dress in bright pink with white polka dots by J. Crew Bridesmaids.  The guests receive invitations in bright shades of pink and green that really set the tone for this fun and festive wedding celebration.  The outdoor tables are draped in bright green linens and topped with flowers in pink and fuschia.  The surrounding trees are hung with bright pink and green paper lanterns that are fabulously colourful during the day and give off soft lighting in the evening.  The guests indulge in a simple three tiered white cake that is beautifully decorated with a spray of pink sugar flowers.  At the end of the night, everyone is sent home with a token of the couple's gratitude packaged in a cute white take-out box with custom pink and green label.

A figure hugging strapless fit and flare wedding dress with pink and green embroidered details by Lazaro is accented by an elegant halter necked bridesmaid dress also by Lazaro.  When the guests arrive and find the clean lines with popping pastel floral accents, there is no argument that this wedding is all about soft elegance.  The tables are draped in white linens and are topped with floral centerpieces in white and petal pink.  Overhead, the ceiling is decorated with pink and green paper lanterns that work as beautiful pops of colour during the day but also offer soft ambient lighting at night.  Keeping true to their chosen colour theme, the couple serves the guests pink champagne as they indulge in deliciously iced pink and green cupcakes.

{Table Top Tuesday} Pink & Green

Okay, I am sooo ready for Spring to come!  That's why I'm starting the first {Table Top Tuesday} in March off with this bright and fun colour combination.  The beauty of this combination is that it works no matter what shade you want to use, from soft pastels to bright saturated shades.  So, let's take a look at some great inspirations!

{Decorations & Table Settings}

I love the idea of using pink paper lanterns or floral pomanders as ceremony and reception decor!  They can be pretty in soft petal pink or fun in bright fuschia! 

Want a fun decor item?  Green apples can be used in centerpieces, decor, and cakes to create a unique look!  Want something a little more classic and sophisticated?  Try pretty table overlays with delicate embroidered details.

The Pink & Green colour combination really gives you room to play around with different design elements.  It lends itself to traditional floral and filigree designs, as well as, more modern elements like polka dots and checkers.

Here are some fantastic cake, cupcake, and macaroon designs that really work well with the Pink & Green colour combination.  Have fun with it, it's dessert!

Tomorrow is {What to Wear Wednesday} so be sure to stop in for some great Pink & Greek fashions!
