From the nest

My mother took me out to breakfast this morning, and we ended up dining in one of the nicer hotels in Boston. Their dining room had a lovely robin’s egg blue and tan color scheme. At one point, my mother fielded a business call and I had plenty of time to admire the decor. Alas, the popularity of blues in general has made finding the true subdued (and slightly green) robin’s egg a little problematic. Of course, even among the actual eggs, you will find a great deal of variation, so that’s one problem solved ;-)

In case you wondering, here is a picture of an actual robin’s egg:

Ain\'t nature grand?

Now, we can parlay that into a favor:

Robin\'s Egg 3 Soaps Boxed

An invitation:

Inspired by nature, natch.

A bridal party theme, as displayed by the lady to our left:

Pretty as a bird, IMO.

And an expression of gratitude:

Gratitude with attitude?

    I love Robin’s egg blue. It’s so serene and so cheerful at the same time. It’s even a little playful while feeling very classic.

    Oh, and I must give love to the site that showed that bridesmaid gown not only in different colors, but also on women of different body types! What’s more, they all look so HAPPY!

    It’s a small thing, I know, but it makes me cranky how many places insist on having women model bridalwear and bridesmaid’s gowns while looking as though they’re about to go Rambo on someone’s ass. Seeing happy faces is a real treat.

    my fiance and i had originally planned on doing a chocolate and robin egg blue theme for our stationery, but it didnt’ match with our wedding colors, so we dropped the idea. these 2 hues are quite popular right now and it’s pretty easy to find the right blue shade. http://www.myjeanm.com has some cute stationery in that color scheme.

    You’re right, as usual, Twistie. I, too, hate the scowls you see on the bridalwear models. What gives?

    And good call, jtmoney, with the Jean M. The color sampler they offer is so great!

    Oh yay! I love the bridesmaid photo. My colors are going to be yellow and various shades of robin’s egg blue and it looks so nice together in the photo. I decided there’s so many shades out there, instead of stressing about getting them all the same, I’ll purposely have slightly different shades of the same color!
