Last week during the inauguration of the new President Melania Trump showed up at the White House with a gift for the Obamas wrapped in an iconic blue Tiffany’s box, seeing that box got me to thinking about that beautiful soft shade of blue. We’ve all seen it on gift boxes and bags but how about using it in our homes? First, a little history of the color. Tiffany Blue is considered a medium shade of Robin’s Egg Blue and it was first used by Tiffany and Co. in 1845 on the cover of the Tiffany Blue Book, since then the company has continued to use that blue and it has grown to be synonymous with the luxury jewelry brand. Tiffany Blue is produced by Pantone and is known as color #1845, the same number as the year it was first used. Can you really use such a well-known color in your home? The answer is, of course, it’s all up to you in how large or small of a dose you want to use it. Today I’m going to share some beautiful uses of Tiffany Blue in everything from furniture to wall colors and artwork. Enjoy!!! (above image via)

A few weeks ago a friend messaged me and asked me if I would be interested in doing the flowers for her daughter’s upcoming wedding, of course, I said yes and the planning began. The wedding was at the Bride’s family’s farm southeast of Norman, Oklahoma and it was beautiful. Because it was an outdoor wedding and we’ve had so much rain this spring and summer the farm is gorgeous, everything is so green, the Bride said she wanted all white flowers, nothing too fancy, just simple, elegant and pretty.

This weekend, Saturday to be exact, there is a royal wedding happening in Sweden when Prince Carl Philip marries his long time love Sophia Helquist.
I had very good intentions of doing a post on the design and traditions of Swedish weddings or a look back at wedding gowns from previous weddings, but alas I didn’t get it done, too much work and life in general. So, today I’m linking to another blog I enjoy reading, The Court Jeweller, where Ella Kay has done a beautiful job of showing us Swedish Royal Weddings from the last century. If you are into jewelry at all and the design and history of it, her blog is a great daily read as well. Watch for photos and stories on-line about the Swedish Royal shindig and Enjoy!!!
