–       Armfuls of Hydrangeas everywhere, moss in distressed terracotta pots, moss balls suspended from the rafters with blue ribbon, white linen, blue napkins, vintage cut glass perfume bottles in blue scattered on the tables, white crockery with blue edging

–       Lichen covered stones and branches, pale grey plants such as ‘air’ (Tillandsia) plants with soft grey leaves and succulents as a sculptural element for your table decorations, pale blue tablecloths and crockery, add in lots of silver with  candlesticks, charger plates, bowls piled high with white sugared almonds

–       Think crockery in patterned blue – polka dots, vintage with birds or flowers or if you want to be really fancy – Limoge with platinum edging

–       Invitations – kept fairly plain so as not to look too feminine and over-done – with a simple design, letterpress, lined envelopes with a darker blue or another colour in your palette

–       Use this beautiful blue as part of a nautical theme – with orange and taupe, with the occasional touch of Milk Chocolate as your colour palette – in stripes, bunting, accessories, all by the water with an ocean view and a bleached wooden deck and jetty to wander on with drink in hand

–       Decorate your reception room as you would a room in a house, but with more of everything. On entrance tables group objects such as silver edged mirrors, photos in silver frames, special books, vases of flowers, groups of pale blue candles. On the dining tables, group blue candlesticks, flowers in blue and white, collections of old blue bottles, special vintage objects

–       For your buffet table find old hydrangea blue or white glass cake stands, compotes, milk glass dishes and fill with white sweets, embellish with blue ribbon and tags
