{Inspiration} Nautical Theme Wedding Colors + Weekly Wrap-Up

I just LOVE the idea of turning randomly found items into fabulous wedding decor pieces! de Lovely Affair is all about practical planning, meaning you flex your creative muscle to spend less and get more of exactly what you want for your big day. In these budget busting times, engaged couples need to rely on an imaginative eye and keen Spidey sense to make smarter purchases.

Random Find of the Week - These fabulous Nautical Themed containers are a perfect addition to any preppy blue, white, yellow, red color scheme, coastal sailing theme, or destination beach wedding. Seriously people, for a single buckeroo, yeah $1.00 each at Target, these cute ribbon handled boxes are extremely versatile; a fresh take on sun and sea!

With a little imagination these gems become wedding favors, centerpieces, displays on a candy table, silverware and napkin holder. Fill them full of rose petals for your flower girls....the possibilities are endless! And if you don't like the color, grab some spray paint, change out the ribbon to match your color palette and you have a super cheap, chic decor THAT is good practical planning!

Going with a blue, yellow and white theme? Add a dash of red to create a vibrant, dimensional color palette. This one is my absolute favorite!

Navy Blue and Yellow are gorgeous as traditional Nautical Theme wedding colors. They are crisp and clean, like a breath of fresh sea air!
