I’m sure by now you’ve heard that the 2013 Pantone color of the year is emerald. Described on their website as a lively, radiant and lush green, Pantone shows many options for using this color in your home and wardrobe. I’ve seen it all across Pinterest as well so I wanted to try it out for myself.

Pinterest Image - Emerald TablescapeMy favorite emerald in your home example is this beautiful tablescape from Pinterest that incorporates black, white and gold. I love a decorated table and since it is the first thing you see in our house, I always try to have a set table with fun and fresh elements.

Emerald Tablescape1This is my version that mostly uses what I already had in the house! Since switching out my great-great-uncle’s chairs for gold ones weren’t an option, I brought in a pop of gold with chargers from Bed, Bath and Beyond. The table runner? It’s just two yards of fabric from Hobby Lobby! (I plan on recovering a bench with this fabric once I’m ready to switch over the table to something for summer – yay for double-duty!)

Emerald Tablescape2I always try to start with our wedding china and its holding up quite nicely for being used so much over the past five years. Some people only use their dishes once or twice a year but since its always out at our house, we use it quite often! The flatware is the matching pattern to our china and the green ‘napkins’ are actually a yard of emerald green fabric from Hobby Lobby, cut into six pieces and folded to look like napkins.

Emerald Tablescape3The beautiful green glasses are the only really new thing on this table. I found them on eBay and fell in love with the blown glass. The water glasses are gifts from our wedding and match the china. I would love to have some with a solid band of gold, too!

Emerald Tablescape4Last but not least, beautiful hydrangea. Tables are so much prettier with fresh flowers and I love these big, white blooms! Our local Whole Foods always has great sales on flowers and last week had a really good deal on these. They are one of my favorites!

Renew with BHLDN

Is three years of marriage too early to renew your vows? Because I want to have another ceremony and wear everything from BHLDN! (Beholden, without the vowels) This is the newest concept from Anthropologie and I am in L.O.V.E.!

I want to wear this gown and have another huge party with my closest family and friends! I love these pleats and the way they fall on the body. I also love this color for a second wedding/renewal ceremony. See?! It is fate.

Aside from the gorgeous clothes and jewelry, I love the images and photographs shown throughout the website. Every picture is a piece of art!

I think this dress would be perfection on a mother of the bride! I am not a huge fan of the one-shoulder dress, but I love the way this looks and the way the seams lay on the body would be super flattering for those millions of photos!

I am very excited to see what BHLDN does and also if I get to see any of these pretties in person! Check out the website for yourself, here.

When I am out and about, if I see a dress with one of these two things I will most certainly take that dress home with me! It is a simple no-brainer.

  1. Orange. Can I get a GO POKES?! Not everyone likes orange. Not everyone will wear orange. This Poke-lovin’ gal loves orange and is so happy it has been ‘in style’ for over a year now. I finally have more than just OSU t-shirts that are orange and this makes me so happy!!
  2. Pockets. I can’t believe three years ago, someone FINALLY came up with the idea of putting pockets on dresses. Earth to Fashion Week! Finally men can stop holding the woman’s lip gloss, id, etc. They are functional, cute and simply awesome.

When my mom told me about one of the choices for Today Throws a Wedding, I was ecstatic and so sad! First, I was ecstatic because the dress has pockets! Second, I was sad because I was told my wedding dress couldn’t have pockets. BOOOOO. If only…

Oh well. Apparently the world isn’t ready for pockets on wedding days because this isn’t the dress that was chosen. I think I need to get it for our wedding vow renewals…in 9 years…

Dress: Anne Barge La Fleur LF 161
