A bright and shining winter beach wedding like Emily envisioned was just the ticket to start off the New Year! I love the idea of pairing glitzy items like gold foil cards and metallic jewelry with organic material like linen and kraft to play off the beach tones and sparkly waters. If you’re picturing a relaxed but elegant beach wedding brightened up with dozens of tea lights after dark, then these picks are for you!

A. Bright winter wedding loveliness doesn’t have to stop at “I do.” Bring the style into your home with this striped bedding.

B. Send guests off with a little goodie! Pack them in these kraft bags, slap a custom sticker or stamp on the front and you have an adorable thank you present!

C. Just like blue skies make your heart happy, this blue bow tie will make your beau look positively dapper.

D. Whether you’re donning it for the rehearsal dinner or dressing your ‘maids, this one-shoulder frock is affordable and just darling.

E. Make your wrists sparkly and bright with this gold chain bracelet.

F. A thank you note goes even further when it’s gold foil and striped!

G. We’re a huge fan of sparkly heels in the office, but you don’t want to sink in the sand in them! Try these adorable flats, instead.

H. Give the beach coolness a touch of warmth. We’re always fans of clusters of votives, especially when they’re as pretty as these mercury glass ones.

I. Beach weddings also mean beach lounging right? Make things a little more formal with a wooden bench — but be sure to keep some throws nearby in case the winter beach breeze comes through, especially at night.

J. We love this natural canvas tote with it’s leather handles. Stuff it with gift for your bridesmaids or with a change of clothes for post-wedding beach frolicking!

K. These alphabet trays mimic the colors of the ocean. Keep them handy on your dressing table for trinkets and small jewelry.

L. We love a little sparkle in unexpected places. Wrap up invitations, programs or favors with this white and gold twine.

Did you plan a winter beach wedding? What items do you think are must-haves?

Hey, y’all!

Emily’s merlot + champagne vineyard inspiration board from last week had me really excited to pull some fun finds that correspond to the rich color palette. I was filled with visions of fall in the North Carolina vineyards, cozy sweaters and scarves, wood accents and, of course, popping open a nice bottle of wine. Whether you’re planning a vineyard wedding, traveling through wine country for your honeymoon or just in love with these colors, these picks will have you dreaming in merlot + champagne.

A. The bold stripe of color in this China set will dress up any table and will look fabulous on display in your china cabinet.

B. Nothing makes me feel cozy the way a scarf does. I love this one from Madewell. With it’s rich colors and type, it’s reminiscent of rustic wine crates and cotton labels.

C. These bottles and wood stoppers bring some of the rustic elements of the vineyard to your bar and table. The best part is that they can be customized with a monogram!

D. I love the many used of these authentic wine crates. Guests can toss cards in them at the wedding and after, you can use them as containers or planters.

E. Finish off the ensemble with these beautiful suede boots from Tory Burch. With no heel and a rich chocolate-y color, they’re a wardrobe staple.

F. We know you’re the ever-prepared hostess. This vintage wood cheese board is just the ticket to making your guests feel welcome.

G. Jet off to your honeymoon in vineyard-inspired fashion. Kate Spade’s patent leather passport holder is both pretty and practical.

H. Show your family and friends how much you love them with some chocolate-dipped madeleines. We won’t tell if you get a few for yourself, too.

I. Keep track of your travels through wine country with these notebooks made from historical maps.

J. If our merlot and champagne colors don’t make you feel decadent, then this red wine chocolate cake recipe from Smitten Kitchen surely will.

    These are complicated deep colors, which show knowing a lot about the beauty and demonstrate good taste and the depth of the inner content. Would be perfect for winter wedding!

Picking out color palette finds to match Emily’s soft peach and blue inspiration board was pressure-packed! With a peachy-keen eye and a dedication to doing our beloved Southern fruit justice, I looked high and low for finds that were both colorful and lovely. In the process, I built up a hankerin’ for peach cobbler and an affinity for powdery blue things. I can’t say I hate it.

A. Pearls are a Southern girl’s best friend. Embellish your outfit with this multi-strand pearl necklace that will “wow” without overpowering.

B. With a hint of an era passed, bow details and soft colors, this frock won my heart. From BHLDN here.

C. Create a little ambiance with round paper lanterns from Luna Bazaar. We like to buy dozens to light up a room!

D. A pair of heels can always brighten up your day. And a pair of heels that match our color palette? That’s just swell! I love this pair from Nina.

E. Light up this prettily-packaged kitchen candle as you and your sweetie prep dinner. It’ll bring back memories of your first date.

F. Snuggle up with your sweetie and this cozy blue pillow from Pottery Barn. We love the embroidered chain stitch.

G. Share the peach love with these adorable note cards from Gilah Press. We haven’t gotten them off our minds since the National Stationery Show where Emily first spotted them.

H. There’s no reason why peaches can’t be dessert (and maybe breakfast, lunch and dinner). Grab your sweetie and fire up the grill for this delicious grilled vanilla peaches recipe.

I. The best peaches practically melt in your mouth—that’s how we know gourmet peach marshmallows are a good idea.

J. Pay homage to the peach state with this bright print. It’ll make you happy that you took the time to make some peach preserves to last through the winter.

K. Pale blue doilies dressing up our go-to tea towels? We love it! These delicate-looking linens will instantly put a smile on your face.
