lily pulitzer

A week or so ago, two of my favorite bridal blogs featured Lily Pulitzer posts on the same day! I wanted to make it a threesome with this inspiration board and join in the fun. Lily Pulitzer’s bright and colorful prints are perfect for beach and destination weddings, and they still have that socialite, sorority […]

bachelorette emily maynard’s wedding

If you follow Burnett’s Boards on Facebook you probably already know that I am obsessed with the show The Bachelorette, and doubly obsessed with this past season because the sassy southern Emily Maynard came back for a shot at love. I just love that super cool do-gooder Jef Holm won her heart –  so excited […]

sweet pink

The darling wedding cake in this inspiration board is from Sweet and Saucy Shop and reminded me so much of Rifle Paper Co. stationary that I went and found some of their adorable paper products to match this sweet pink wedding (or bridal shower)! Will you be my maid of honor and thank you postcards…  Will […]

anna karenina

Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy, is the (tragic – but you can ignore that bit for your wedding) love tale of the married Anna and the oh-so-handsome Count Vronsky. Despite the somewhat gruesome outcome of this story (I don’t want to spoil it here if you haven’t read it), it would make  for a romantic […]

bazooka joe

Remember Bazooka Joe bubble gum? And the fun, eye patch wearing kid on the comic strips that they came wrapped in? And of course the sugary sweet goodness of those little pink gums, and how you’d end up chewing 10 of them in an hour because the flavor died so fast? I used to love […]

parisian pinks

“…but for all that, she was still a girl at heart and loved pretty things.” – Shades of Milk and Honey, Mary Robinette Kowal. We all know that pink is for girls and blue is for boys, and I’d always assumed that was ‘nurture’ instead of ‘nature’ – society just made it that way for […]

Chevron patterns are taking the wedding world by storm! Just look at that fabulous chevron patterned cake in the inspiration board above. But what exactly is a ‘chevron’ and where did it some from?
