board game wedding: yahtzee

The second installment of the board game wedding series happens today with a polka dot and yellow wedding inspiration board inspired by the game Yahtzee!

yellow and polka dot wedding / Board Game Inspired Series

Yahtzee was first marketed in the United States in the 1950s and the original box cover had this bright yellow color on it so I wanted to include yellow in this inspiration board. Of course since it is a dice game I ran with a polka dot theme and the entire look is fabulously graphic with a white backdrop.

The bride’s veil, wedding invitation, and paper lanterns all have polka dots and the cake – there’s nothing better for a yellow and polka dot Yahtzee inspired wedding than a lemon poppy seed cake!

Details to adore:
