Good Morning Aisle Candy readers! I’m Ashley from Lemon and Lavender and I’m here sharing some pretty spring color inspiration. I am so drawn to punchy pink, pastel yellow, and lavender this time of year. The lovely tablescape and floral arrangement served as my inspiration for this board and unbeknownst to me, Sara helped coordinate and the design was from Maria at Dreamywhites. The tablescape featured here and photographed by KT Merry. Hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much Ashley for posting for me while I am away running in the Big Sur Marathon. Its an exciting time for me personally, but I am excited to get back to you all.
So today’s kind of a big deal. Ok, not kind of, it is a big deal and I’m so excited to share the news with you! Last month I got together with some of the best NYC vendors (see below) for a ‘Vintage New York’ inspiration shoot captured by the amazing KT Merry. Well today it’s being featured on Style Me Pretty! Here’s an itty bitty taste of the amazing imagery you’ll see on SMP and I highly recommend heading over to view the rest asap. For those of you smitten, make sure to check in later today for a buying guide and DIY project to help recreate the look for your own wedding!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I hope everyone is celebrating in some way or another. I thought it was only fitting to create my 5th inspiration board (ironic right?) around this festive holiday. When I think Cinco de Mayo I think bold colors, fun decorations and of course margaritas. Hope you like!
