spring pastels

I'm loving the festive spring colors this season - soft pastels, playful florals, neons and brights...however, I'm particularly drawn to the pastels. They are soft and lovely, and it's so liberating to know that there are no holds barred when it comes to pairing different colors, textures and patterns.

Perhaps my favorites are mint and peachy-coral. But then I get sad that I'm excluding the soft pinks and blues. And I guess I'll throw yellow in there too (though I have a slight resentment toward yellow, since it never seems to look good on my fair skin).

These sweet colors are so perfect for spring and can easily be transitioned into summer. Also, how gorgeous to pair them up with soft lace, florals, polka dots...you name it. And they would be simply charming at a wedding, bridal shower, baby shower or even girls' brunch. I'm seriously thinking about upcoming birthday parties/events for an excuse to use these hues.

I need these - I'm just not sure for what exactly...custom invitations by MoonbeamsAndRainbows
