Preppy Pink and Green Thursday

How simple and stunning are these white plates with green bows? You can buy the whole display at one of my favorite little internet shops, Layla Grayce... but wouldn't it be more fun to create your own collection piece by piece?

I love these muffin pans as a centerpiece, wouldn't they look lovely filled with hydrangeas? The plants in the photo are "baby's tears."

How cute is this save the date card? They actually had the theatre change the sign for their photo rather than photo shop the text! Creative and fun...


I love these bird nest place card holders from pottery barn,

and while we're talking place card holders how cute is this topiary place card holder from theknot.com?

Love this pink door knocker... I stole it from someone's blog last fall so if I nabbed the image from you please let me know and I'll be happy to give you the credit you deserve!

For such a small space this little side garden holds a world of possibilities for me, I might swap out that hard chair for something more comfortable, but I do know I could spend an afternoon reading out here!

Speaking of gardens drop by ronbluntphoto.com for some gorgeous garden eye candy, like this view of the Gardens at Glen Burnie in Winchester, VA.

I have been on the hunt for some antique botanical prints. Or rather pseudo antique botanical prints, I'd love to find the one's that have the actual diagrams of all the flower parts and the scientific names.

The idea for Pink and Green Thursday started with the ever lovely Trish from Pink Preppy Lilly Lover. Click the button to view her fantastic blog!

Hey sweet little Elle! What a delightful Pink & Green Thursday! Immediately my eye went straight for that gorgeous fuschia door with the cool knocker - so awesome, I see a bright pink door in my future in the next few years for sure.

The side garden is my favorite...I'm with you, I'd probably swap out something a little more cozy, we could girl talk out there for HOURS day and night!!

I love the wall of plates, but I would probably make my own eclectic selections (great minds think alike AGAIN!) Love that couple's save the date, how fun are they? Very clever!

Amazing job well done darling, once again!! Hope your week is going well xoxoxoxox

I was searching for the same thing, and Panteek appears to be the best one out there. If you find one with diagrammed arrangements, I'd love to her about it?
