Bridal Shower: Blue & White

I’m a sucker for blue & white.  Pretty much all of the women in my family are – however,  pair it with raspberry pink and it just makes me smile!  I recently had a woman come to me to create a custom  inspiration board and invitation for a bridal shower/luncheon.  She wanted [...]
