Nouveau (East Meets West): A collaboration of traditional and modern Japanese style

My boyfriend is pretty critical of my work here on this blog, but he gives really good suggestions. I don't think I've ever made a board that incorporated any specific countries in the theme... even the Phuket one I made was more about the beach and Thai food than anything - it wasn't a cultural thing at all! So I decided to create a story within the moodboard. Interracial couple who would like to celebrate their wedding traditionally in honor of the bride's parents, but also want to celebrate their modern artsy lifestyle in the city. I thought it was pretty cool, but it's also making me really hungry. I had to check out the chefs at the Benihana website for pegs and all of a sudden I wanted some of their Hibachi Chicken! Before I get carried away... * Ceremony in a tea garden and reception in a modern zen-like loft.

Elopement: Road Trip! Nothing gets better than the original way to run off into the sunset!

I've always wanted to elope. Even before I knew I wanted a big pretty wedding, I wanted to run off with my fiance and country hop. Seeing as the big wedding idea fades as I get older, the road tripping looks very plausible. Imagine going cross country like in that movie Elizabethtown? Think of all the neat little towns you can explore along the way! Make a scrapbook with polaroid pictures and stubs or little souveniers of the sights you stopped at. Bed and breakfast inns are so underrated! They are the prettiest and most cost friendly places to relax at for the night. Not to mention some of the best homecooked meals I've had were in B&B's. Here's a little board to inspire you. Get hitched at City Hall then get to it!

Garden Series: Herbology and Monet for Nimrat

I haven't posted here in awhile and I feel like the world is going crazy. Break ups are haunting me! Everyone around me has been throwing in the towel and I feel so bad because I'm all for the pretty wedding (although, if it isn't meant to be - a wedding is essentially a huge dinner party with a white dress, recreate it with your girlfriends instead) and contentedly ever after. I got to talking with one of my best friends Nimrat about get-togethers of the fancy sort (like weddings maybe?) and I realize I never really got inspired by art. Since she's an artist, I felt like I'd make a board or two for her to ponder on while she's in Seattle.
