nellie's inspiration

BWP's very talented graphic designer, Nellie, has a little thing for navy & white and all things nautical.  She was all juiced up over my recent post and suggestion of doing my future office in navy & white.  So I decided to pull a little inspiration board together in honor of her.

She's recently married {07.07.07 ... yeah, cuz she's that cool} and had a completely nautical theme.  Everything was designed and hand-made by her.

Location | a Lake Club
Save-the-dates | a boat sail
Place cards | paper sailboats
Wedding favor | a small pail of swedish fish
Bridesmaid dresses | navy with small white polka dots {jcrew}
Cake | white tiered with navy ribbon

The wedding was beautiful and not a detail missing ... check out the 'thank you' for the musician.  And because she's our designer, we got to use some of her pieces in our marketing materials {yay us!}.

And now for my inspiration ... Nellie painted the living room, of her recently purchased house, in navy!  This room looks so cozy!  And toy-free ... for now!  Hint, hint Nellie ...

How - how gorgeous! I once saw a picture of a Navy wedding & have loved the idea ever since. I can't get over the little boat placecards... with lifesaver safety rings!
