Think about the beauty of blush roses. Mix them with white and pink roses, and then add a dash of pink sweet peas and lavender heliotrope — and you’ve created a memorable bridal bouquet
For the wedding dinner, the tablecloths might be sewn of blush moiré and topped by napkins of pale pink with centerpieces of blush, pink and white roses. Add candles — perhaps blush-pink tapers set into silver holders — for a bit of nighttime romance.
To celebrate the happy couple, the bridal party, family and guests might raise a toast or two with flutes filled with blush-colored Champagne.
On, what a pretty dinner it would be.
Blush also is a lovely color for home decorating. For a master bedroom, here is a design scheme inspired by the popular wedding color that you might consider, whether you are newly married or not.
Paint the walls a blush pink, perhaps with a pearlized finish, and give all of the woodwork a coat of white semi-gloss enamel. At the windows, I suggest drapery made of white silk trimmed in a blush woven braid and hung on a blush-painted rod with pink rings for contrast. You might have to paint those rings a custom pink.
Every couple-to-be has heard the saying: “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” In our case, you might consider something blue for the carpeting. Just be sure it’s a clean-and-clear shade.
Choose a pale blue for the fabric on the headboard, and find a blush-and-blue pattern to cover the lounge chairs.
The night tables can be finished in powder blue and topped with white-marble tops. Your bedside lamps could have Waterford crystal bases with lampshades made of the same fabric that covers the lounge chairs.
Yes, there may be blush in your future — and a splash of powder blue, too.
Happy days in June to all the brides and grooms.
