Colour inspiration for the festive season.

We are now thinking Christmas ...I know Christmas, can you believe it. So the research has begun. We get inspiration from so many different places and from previous projects. We are currently working on christening centrepieces using buttercup yellow and duck egg blue.....so this got us thinking about how we would be able to combine these colours into a Christmas colour palette.....We are loving Buttercup Yellow, Pale Blue and off course Festive Red, teamed with old fashion craft paper and paper doily details.

Eye candy:

Pretty packaging:

(all images above have been taken from google search, if any of these images are yours please feel free to contact us and we will credit you)

Inspiring and pretty things from one of our favourite designers/stockists My Little Jedi

These pretty packages above can be recreated by visiting My little Jedi and purchasing these beautiful paper doilies, Divine twine in a range of yummy colours and wait until you see their new range in wrapping paper and gift cards.....you must pop in and have a look around xx

We just love brown paper packaging dressed with beautiful ribbon and paper doilies.....It is the simple things that are often the most stunning.
