Inspiration Shoot: Winter White Dessert Table

As a blogger, I try not to use certain words too often because when you do, they lose meaning to the reader. At the top of my list are “love”, “insanely talented”, and “must-see”. Well, here’s the post where I blow all that away and use all three.

The insanely talented Linda of Call Me Cupcake created this must-see, jaw-droppingly gorgeous dessert table vignette that I immediately fell in love with as soon as I saw it (see, I’m so enthusiastic I used all three in the opening sentence!). Perfect for any white wedding but especially lovely during this frosty time of year, the white-on-white look is so incredibly clean and crisp but is given layers of dimension through the use of different textures and off-white tones. The cake is a true stunner, incorporating a lace motif that is melting my heart. Enjoy, and thank you Linda for letting me share your amazing shots with our readers!

Inspiration Board: Soft and Sweet

Share →Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on Pinterest

We’ve all seen weddings with pink as the main color but the way I see it, there can ever be too much pink inspiration! In fact, I love pink as much as the next girl. Whether it’s baby pink, berry pink or even fuchsia, you simply can’t go wrong with this color! So, keeping this in mind I thought of a combination between pink and fabric prints. A laid back scenery with lots of charm and home made things! A true DIY wedding with beautiful fabric flowers for centerpieces, gorgeous linens and sweet favors wrapped in oh-so-pretty print fabrics.

Inspiration Board: Golden Winter

Today, I’m thrilled to welcome a new contributor to the Inspired Bride who will be taking over our recently-vacated contributor space. Sofia of Brancoprata will be joining us with her absolutely amazing inspiration boards. She’s been kind enough to supply us with two boards this week, so I’ll let her take over and share what she’s planned for today! – Maddy

The Tiffany holiday ad campaign set the tone for this inspirational board. In their own words, it’s “a celebration of the joy of true love”. What could be more inspirational for my first board here at The Inspired Bride? The beautiful girl with the golden dress in some New York street made me fall completely in love with a gold and deep blue color scheme, perfect for a Winter wedding.
