A Sorbet-Hued Affair

The gorgeous pastel tones from the Spring 2012 runways have hit the stores, and though the weather hasn’t quite caught up, New York City is already awash in shades of peach, pink, mint and the mellowest of yellow. 

I’m completely in love with the trend, and while I am already fast at work styling a pastel-inspired engagement session for a Merci New York client, I can’t help but wonder what would happen if we took this palette a step further… and curated an entire wedding around the sorbet-chic tones of the Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 runway?

Luckily, that’s why Revel is so wonderful… Not only can we imagine the fabulously fun outcome (below) but we can indulgently shop  these finds right here. Happy shopping!

Tea Party Tablescape

The feminine flowers and pastel shades of this tablescape are offset by modern chairs and a farmhouse table; both which add an unexpected edge. These adorable pastel espresso cups and saucers will help you create a similar tea party feel! Image: Dust Jacket Attic

Mint Geometric Cake

I love how this cake captures the look perfectly, down to the mid-century geometric details and glam, center “jewel” that almost resembles a lady-like brooch. Image: Erica O'Brien Cake Design

Vintage Parasols

Stylist’s tip: Pretty parasols, (like these sorbet toned vintage lace ones from Layla Grace) are perfect wedding props. Luckily, they are also a literal translation of the Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 runway! For an outdoor wedding, have a tin of parasols ready pre-ceremony to help shade the sun, and use them as a fun photobooth prop as well!

A signature twist on the traditional striped tie, this sorbet color-blocked style from Richard James is ideal for adding punch to tailored looks.
