The color that makes us want to do a happy dance is also the reigning champion of weddings everywhere, it would seem. Here are a few ideas for how to incorporate peach into your day, whether in pops of coral-y neon or in large sweeps of a more muted shade.
1. DIY Watercolored Letterpress Invites
Turn a simple invitation into a work of art with a little watercolor that plays off your party palette. Visit minted.com/julep for the full how-to.
2 & 3. Food and Drink to Match
We love these sweet little signature drinks served up in bottles with striped paper straws (similar here), and the delicate shade of peachy keen frosting on this cake is just perfection! For this oh-so-irresistable yellow cake recipe, head to Bakerella.com.
4. Nail Art
Wouldn’t peach nails be adorable on your bridesmaids? Grace Kelly rocked a peachy-coral lip her whole life, and with good reason. It looks good with just about every skin tone, offsets that sun-kissed, healthy glow and is just plain cheery. In other words: it makes you look tanner. We know what shade we’re choosing for our first pedicure of the sandal season!
5. DIY Coffee Filter Garland
This is such a cute bridal shower idea: a coffee filter garland is a perfectly girly, ruffled, inexpensive decoration and can be dyed to match just about any color scheme (though you know where our heart lies) with a little food coloring. Get the DIY tutorial on the 31 Bits blog.
6. DIY Cross Stitched Place Cards
A bridal shower is a great opportunity to delve into details with great care, because you don’t have to make 250 of everything! These cross-stitched place cards are adorable, and sure to be treasured keepsakes. Get the DIY instructions from Ruffled.
7. Don’t forget him!
Real men wear peach. Like this necktie from Etsy seller Tie Obsessed.
8. Ask yourself WWDKD? (What would Duchess Kate do?)
Obviously, incorporate the color in its most subtle shade: pale, muted buff peach. (Photo Credit: Peter Byrne/PA Wire)
