In the Details: Something Blue and White

>> Monday, November 1, 2010

This Christian Dior dress had me thinking about blue and white china and it's what I'm inspired by this week.


When you think of blue and white china you may think of a collection you could have seen at your aunt, grandmother or family friends house but I see a lovely wedding theme starting with the dress.

next create a memorable invitations mirroring the designs found on these pieces of china.

continue the theme with lovely florals in blue and white

what better way to use these heirloom pieces than in your wedding day decor at the ceremony

or at the reception where you can fill vases full of blooms

of course you can skip the vases and use a variety of blue and white china patterns for your table settings

When it comes to blue and white china, it's easy to think vintage but there are so many ways to infuse these lovely pieces into your wedding day and keep it as modern or traditional as you desire.
